How Dr. Chris Villanueva Runs MB2 Dental Solutions
As the founder of MB2 Dental Solutions, Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva has built a company that is very responsive to the needs of his clients. His company offers business services to dental practices and how has over 70 affiliated locations. As a dentist himself he knows what is important to other dentists, with the biggest priority being complete clinic autonomy. He and his team respect this autonomy and support the dentist-patient relationship in all cases.
Over the course of his career as a dentist Dr. Villanueva worked in both a sole dental practice and in a corporate setting. Having seen both sides he knew what the positives and negatives were with each approach. His goal at MB2 Dental Solutions is to offer the positives of working in both areas to his clients. His company offers a number of ways that dentists can run their practice while spending most of their time actually treating patients instead of doing paperwork. This includes areas like payroll, billing, human resources, and other areas.
At MB2 Dental Solutions, Dr. Chris Villanueva stays out of the details of the day-to-day operations at his company as he believes micromanaging is very detrimental to running a business. He says his approach is to hire the right people, set the vision and tone of the company, and then let them do the jobs you hired them to do. He trusts his employees and in turn they trust him.
Under Dr. Villanueva’s leadership, MB2 Dental Solutions now employees over 530 people. His company’s employees are located in six states including his company’s home state of Texas. He strives to create a youth-oriented culture at his company instead of the usual drab presence that most companies in this field have. MB2 Dental Solutions is also one of the few companies in the industry that is owned by dentists.
To further support their affiliated dentists and for everyone to get to know each other better Dr. Chris Villanueva hosts Owner’s Retreats twice a year. The team at MB2 Dental Solutions and the affiliated dentists get together to have fun on a retreat. Some of the past activities they have engaged in are trips to places like Cabo San Lucas and white-water rafting trips. They also support their dentists in other ways such as collecting food and donating money to their affiliated dentists and their staffs who were affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas.
