Dr. Chris Villanueva is not only a well-respected dental practitioner, but also a creative business man. He is the founder of MB2 Dental Solutions, a dental network that blows the lid off the usual business model that’s focused primarily of making money. MB2 Dental Solutions takes a different approach, providing support to dentists so that they can provide the very best dental care to their parents. Dr. Villanueva believes that good dental practices need to have dynamic care providers who are motivated and enjoy their work. In turn, their businesses grow because they have customers who get only the best care.
It’s no surprise that Dr. Villanueva’s idea is working. With 533 employees in 70 different locations, MB2 Dental Solutions is continuing to grow. After finishing dental school, he found that he didn’t have much choice when it came to where he would work. He would either need to join a large practice or start his own. Not liking his limited options, Dr. Chris Villanueva opted out and started MB2 Dental Solutions instead. He attributes the success of the business to hiring smart and motivated employees who bring great ideas to the table. By allowing his co-workers to self-manage, he can focus on the bigger picture of running the business.
Dr. Villanueva’s great ideas come from any number of sources, whether it’s when he’s up in the middle of the night or spending time with his kids. As a tech geek, he is enthusiastic about new technology that supports the practice of dentistry. Not satisfied with the dental reporting software available, he and his IT specialists created an MB2 Dental Solutions software tool for more efficient business tracking. This is the kind of progressive change that Dr. Chris Villanueva believes will drive MB2 Dental Solutions forward. The company also provides a team of specialists in the areas of human resources, legal, marketing, compliance and payroll so that the dentists can focus on what they do best. MB2 Dental Solutions has a youthful, outgoing and lively culture and employees who support one another. Dr. Villanueva is always seeking new ideas, technologies and methods to keep both the doctors happy and to keep the patients coming back.
