Keeping the team together through crisis
In 2019 Marana Dental Care in Marana, AZ was thriving. Then came March 2020 and Arizona’s stay-at-home order went into effect. With no way to see her patients Dr. Nikki Trombetta was forced to temporarily close. Working with Bank of America banker Carlos Nieto, she applied for a loan through the federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). This helped her adjust her practices—and keep her team employed.

Creating an inclusive environment starts at the top and extends to all of our company.
