The Shobergs’ Story
After graduating from Marquette Dental School in 1988, Dr. Paul Shoberg worked for three different dentists in Oshkosh, Hortonville and Appleton before making the decision to purchase Downtowne Dental Group of Appleton with his wife, Suzie, in 1995. Today, the successful dental practice has seven employees providing general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Like most people, the Shobergs had no idea how the COVID-19 crisis would affect their business.
“Chris called us before we even had a chance to grab the phone and call him,” Paul said. “He couldn’t have been more helpful.”
After hearing about the PPP loan, the Shobergs, who worked with Chris Nissen, a business banking officer at American National Bank Fox Cities, were very interested.
Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans are a type of SBA 7(a) loan created by The CARES Act, which was a relief bill passed in the face of the pandemic.
