The 8 best lenders for refinancing dental school loans, per Forbes

Forbes has ranked its top eight lenders for refinancing loans from dental school, naming the Rhode Island Student Loan Authority as the best choice, according to a Nov. 15 report. 

RISLA was the only lender to receive more than four stars, earning a 4.5-star ranking.

Dental graduates leave school with an average of nearly $300,000 in student loan debt, making refinancing a potential method to cut down on total interest. 

Forbes used six weighted metrics to generate its list: hardship options (30%), eligibility (18%), loan terms (18%), application process (16%), interest rate (13%) and fees (5%). 

Here are the publication's top eight lenders when it comes to refinancing student loans, along with their rating out of five stars:
