Dr. Chris Villanueva is a successful active practitioner due to his professionalism. He founded MB2 Dental promoting both the corporate dentistry and sole practitioner sides under one roof. MB2 Dental has professionally supported more than 70 practitioners across six states with a workforce of 533. Typical dentistry is like traditional dental practices, and therefore, Dr. Chris created a unique experience.
The idea of MB2 Dental was born after he graduated from dental school. Graduates only have two options in the dentistry field either to join large group practice offering state of the art technology, CE availability, shared best practices and economies of scale. The second option is to start a private practice providing less bureaucracy, ownership and complete clinical autonomy among others. Having spent time on both sides, Dr. Villanueva understands their importance. Therefore Dr. Villanueva had an idea of having both of these options working in the same firm.
Daily Dr. Villanueva stays productive keeping everyone in the company working towards success. He brings his ideas to life by surrounding himself with smart people who help bring the great ideas, and he mostly gets ideas late at night like at 2 am while playing video games. Dr. Chris Villanueva is excited with the technology trend in the dental industry providing services that enhance the patient experience.
As an entrepreneur, Dr. Villanueva thinks he is more productive because he does not take himself too seriously and MB2 Dental is a place where employees have fun together. Chris Villanueva believes the easiest way to gain trust is through humor. He recommends all entrepreneurs always to get time for self-reflection and have a simple day-day life. Moreover, he urges the community to read “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek to set strong visions.
MB2 Dental is changing the overview of dentistry. The company is unique because it is dentist-owned and is focused on personal growth, having fun, autonomy, and support.MB2 Dental offers an environment where dentists learn from each other and a youthful culture supported by practical experience. It also provides an expert team that help practitioners overcome any HR, payroll, legal, marketing or compliance challenging and thus they are protected.
Moreover, MB2 dentists enjoy a bi-annual owner’s retreats where they go to enjoy time with other dentists in the industry having fun and sharing knowledge. Some of the past retreats have involved white-water rafting adventures such as tours to Cabo San Lucas. Dr. Chis Villanueva is passionate about taking a different way in the field that will benefit the dentistry industry.
