Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva is the founder of MB2 Dental. Chris started this firm with the objective of championing for the best from both sides of the Dentistry divide; these are the dentists working as sole practitioners and those in the corporate industry. Considering that Chris has worked on both sides of the dentistry profession, he knew that it was vital to create a firm that would not compromise the integrity of his job. The knowledge and expertise Chris got while working on the different sides of provider business equation has been one of the vital reasons MB2 is currently flourishing. MB2 was founded with the recognition that dental professionals require highly specialized assistance that doesn’t come with any strings attached. As of now, MB2 has over 500 members of staff and also support dental practitioners from more than 70 locations spanning six states.
What makes MB2 stand out in the field of the dental practice is that the firm is owned by the dentists, for the dentists. Unlike other traditional dentist networks, MB2 is not driven by the need to increase profit margins. The primary objective of this company is to enable the provision of autonomy, personal growth, and support while having fun doing what these dentists love doing most. These are the values that have promoted and aided in the improvement of standards in the Dental Industry. Achieving all this have resulted to happier and content dental practitioners and at the same time facilitated the growth of the dental industry.
In a recent interview, Chris Steven stated that the main reason to establish MB2 was to provide dentists with the option of getting to enjoy the perks of working as a sole dental practitioner while at the same time letting these practitioners benefit from being part of a larger dentist organization. These in mind, MB2 had to be able to provide state of the art technology and a significant economy of scale for their business model to be viable and accurate to the company’s mission. This model has been championing to put the dentists first as this will result in better service provision to their clients. Having surrounded himself with positive and smart individuals, Chris was able to bring this idea to life. At a personal level, Chris shares the ideology that professionals are better together as compared to when everyone is looking out for his/her interests. Chris Steven can’t hide his fascination with the role technology is playing the Dental industry.
