Separate but together is the name of the game when it comes to the husband-and-wife team of Ace and Sarah Jovanovski. They had just finished their internships: Ace in prosthodontics and Sarah in orthodontics. Years of education and application had prepared them to practice their trade, but they lacked clear direction on how to structure a business.
Working with Business Advisor Dick Johnson of the Texas State SBDC, they identified a complex but effective business structure that would allow them to operate independently yet cooperatively. Since their clients are primarily referrals from other dental and medical professionals, they were also guided with the development of an effective marketing strategy.
With the continued help of the SBDC, the Jovanovskis obtained an SBA 504 loan to get their practice started in Round Rock, Texas.

“The SBDC helped us keep our focus by giving us task lists after each session. This kept us on track and motivated to do all the things needed to open our practice.” – Dr. Ace Jovanovski & Dr. Sarah Jovanovski
