In 1985, Cassio Audi made his first move to becoming a heavy metal legend with the decision to accept the invitation of Pit and Yves Passarell and join the heavy metal band, Viper. Cassio Audi was already a well-known name in the Brazilian music industry around Sao Paulo as he had already embarked upon two stints as the drummer with different bands across the Brazilian city; already influenced by the British heavy metal bands of the 1970s and 80s the shared love of bands including Iron Maiden who were leading the move towards a return to a more popular sound for heavy metal in the mainstream, Cassio Audi found he and his fellow members of Viper were about to launch themselves to unparalleled levels of success.
Even though he was a teenager, Cassio Audi quickly began building a reputation as one of the most talented drummers in the heavy metal world and remains so despite his last recordings as a member of Viper taking place almost 30 years ago. Events moved quickly for Viper and their brand of British influenced heavy metal with the band quickly growing a live following before embarking on two of the best-known demo albums in the history of heavy metal which are now combined as the iconic, “The Killera Sword”.
In 1987, Viper signed a professional recording contract and created the album, “Soldiers of Sunrise”. The youth of the band was without a doubt because of the naivety of some of their lyrics but the musicianship of the band was without doubt and was praised heavily by critics. Despite the success of Viper which still holds in 2017, Cassio Audi felt his future lay in the financial industry and prompted him to explore the many options open to him to study and work in an industry which he has conquered as one of the leading lights in opening up the Brazilian economy.
MB2 Dental Solutions is one of the most interesting companies in the field of providing business services to dental practices, an industry that is often quite boring and drab. They are based in Carrolton, Texas, and provide their services in six states to date with plans for more in the future. The providers that have partnered with them count over 85 practices so far and counting.
Many dentists love to run a solo practice and avoid the bureaucracy of being a corporate dentist. However, they acknowledge there are benefits to being attached to a large corporation such as economies of scale and having someone else tend to the business side of things. MB2 Dental Solutions is dedicated to giving dentists who own solo practices the best of both worlds. They maintain complete autonomy when it comes to the dentistry they perform while on the other hand they don’t have to deal with the aspects of running a business that they don’t want to deal with.
MB2 Dental Solutions can run pretty much everything outside of the dentist-patient relationship when it comes to operating a dental practice. They can do everything from payroll to IT support to training to marketing and everything in between. The dentists that have affiliated with them really appreciate this because they can bring in more clients, make more money, and not become a businessman on top of being a dentist.
The success of MB2 Dental Solutions, which is privately held, has come to the attention of venture capitalists who want to be part of a very successful company. One of these companies is Sentinel Capital Partners who chose to invest a substantial amount of money in this company in October 2017. They were attracted to the relationship MB2 Dental Solutions has with its affiliates, which is referred to as a “joint venture” model.
One of the partners at Sentinel, Paul Murphy, said that MB2 Dental Solutions is a company that is able to both attract and retain great employees because it is a company that is dedicated to the idea that “patients come before profits”. This focus on their clients and their patients means that MB2 Dental Solutions is doing right by their customers and has the correct focus to attract more affiliates in the future. By doing business the right way the leadership of MB2 Dental Solutions has established a path forward that everyone involved benefits from.
