Traditional dentistry has been heavily criticized lately for not making patient interests a priority. One dentist affiliation network that’s silencing the stigma is MB2 Dental. The dentist-owned collective supports corporate and independent practitioners across six US states. With over 70 affiliation networks, it’s serving some 533 associates nationwide. Its founder, Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva established the network on the premise of improving dental services by promoting personal development, group adventure, support and clinical autonomy among practitioners. With this cooperation, practitioners are afforded specialized training and support on their professional adventure to achieve career enrichment. While MB2 Dental encourages regulatory compliance, it’s stressing the value in streamlining innovations that reward the interests of practitioners, patrons, and the organization. Its indifference highlights a forward-thinking culture that transcends the biases of the wider dentist management community.
A pioneering visionary of modern dentistry, Dr. Villanueva isn’t the stereotypical CEO indulged in micromanaging an empire. He envisioned becoming an innovator of dentistry, instead of restricting himself to private practice or group networking. When he finished his dental residency, he immediately launched into entrepreneurship and established his own practice management company. His model afforded him the luxury of networking with like-minded professionals and being an entrepreneur. At MB2 entrepreneurship Dental, he’s equally invested in teamwork and creativity, which are two of the core dynamics helping him keep ahead. With technological advancements streamlining operations and the economics of dental practices today, he’s strongly engrossed in the evolution. The devoted father isn’t missing out on family time, despite his commitment as a dutiful CEO.
The Ohio-native has achieved what many practitioners constantly fail to incorporate as professionals – balancing provider and corporate responsibilities. With mentorship programs designed to help dentist practices cultivate a similar culture, Dr. Villanueva continues a mission of meaningful change. Dentistry has always been a capital-intensive commerce that thrives on its economy. With MB2 Dental, Dr. Villanueva sets out to mentor network affiliates by providing the needed tools to motivate infrastructural growth and improve practices. Large and micro dental practices face similar challenges that have triggered a cyclic collapse of the organizational infrastructure. While he’s not totally fixated on killing the obsession of the impassioned dentist committed to the core elements of his craft and specialization. Dr. Villanueva strives to prioritize the ethics of running a successful practice to complement medical expertise in dentistry. He’s consciously driving integration to empower professionals, in turn, accelerating service delivery, while preserving the culture of dental specialization.
