Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva is the founder of MB2 Dental and an active practitioner in dentistry. MB2 Dental is a company that allows dentists to consolidate their business practices and improve operating standards while maintaining a private practice. MB2 Dental can offer services for human resources, accounting, finance, credentialing, compliance, IT, billing, and collections. Additional services include marketing, recruiting, procurement, business development, and training.
Dr. Villanueva was tired of seeing all the corporate dentists enjoy the economies of scale and get discounted prices on supplies and services. So, he decided to start a company that could bring the two worlds together. Having experienced both kinds of dentistry business models, he knew there had to be a way to get corporate benefits while maintaining a private practice. Thus, MB2 was born and became a dentist-owned firm.
MB2 provides a way for dentists to get the buying power of a corporate dentist office. It also provides a way out from under the minutiae of paperwork and management. However, this does not impact the actual private dentist office. The individual dentist decides which services they want to use and which they are not willing to change. Everything is up to the dentists. They can decide which services they want to take advantage of and what they still want to handle themselves. Some dentists like taking care of part of the day-to-day processes and others just want to focus on the clinical portion of the business.
Additionally, the dentists can choose to partner together. This might be done because one dentist has a specialty service that another dentist could take advantage of. The two locations would determine how they run. The dentists would make joint decisions, based on whatever agreement they put together, and decide what MB2 services to take advantage of.
Dr. Villanueva is a determined dentist who tries to take a vacation and not take himself too seriously – his employees shoot each other with nerf guns in the office. His idea of building his business on the people in it and not the physical requirements is what drives him forward. He believes that the company is successful because it focuses on the individual dentists and allows them to express themselves in the manner they want. Building a business allowing dentists to work together was a dream that Dr. Villanueva was able to bring to fruition successfully.
