At some point in everyone’s life, there’s a probability they will visit a dentist. Many people will most likely agree that visiting a traditional dental practice is not an exciting experience. One thing for sure is if the practitioners and their staff members are not excited the patient will not be excited. The reason for such drab and uninspired attitudes could be that these practitioners are not receiving the vital support they need from the corporate side of the coin.

Sure, practitioners most likely do not desire to be micromanaged; however, practitioners need to be inspired to continuously make improvements that benefit all of their patients. Improvements of operating standards can facilitate healthy growth, happier practitioners, and therefore happier patients. Healthy growth is not about focusing on profit margins or crunching numbers.

Doctor Villanova, an active practitioner with a vision of promoting the best-of-the-best from both the practitioner and corporate side of the dental industry recognized that dental practitioners needed specialized assistance without micromanagement. Dr. Chris Steven Villanova, founder, and CEO of MB2 Dental discovered what it takes to give critical reinforcement without compromising the profession. Dr. Villanova used direct knowledge based on his time spent on both sides of the provider- business equation.

The idea for MB2 Dental Solutions originated from the fact that doctor Villanova wanted to be “best” in accordance with economies of scale, shared best-practices, state-of-art technology, complete autonomy, less bureaucracy, availability, and ownership. These are very important attributes that will enhance the patient’s experience, lower employee turnover, and keep practitioners productive. Incorporating these things into any industry makes for a happier working environment. People work best when they are having fun and not under great pressure!

Everyone working in our company has a special role. Nevertheless, Dr. Villanova understands that it is important for all staff members to be on the same page and know that the ultimate goals are making the patient experience better and empowering doctors to provide the best patient care possible! If everyone is not working together, chaos and confusion will most likely turn the patient visit into a gloomy encounter.

Overall doctor Villanova believes that a business is built on people and not on who’s best at everything. Nevertheless, there must be motivating factors that keep our doctors on their toes, focused, and striving to be the best, by doing the best they can to create a compassionate caring environment for all patients.

For several years, dentists have been complaining about their current condition inside the clinics across the United States. For those who are practicing their profession with other dentists, their main problem is that they do not have the autonomy to do what they think is the best for their patients. For those professionals who have their own clinics, their main issue is mismanagement. These types of problems keep the dentists from doing their job right, and some end up stressed and no longer enjoying their job. A solution proposed to this problem is the creation of a dental network that will end these common problems faced by the dentists in the United States. Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva, a dentist based in Texas, recommended this solution. He established MB2 Dental Solutions, which is a firm who currently has the largest network of dentists in the United States.

The way the profession is practiced significantly changed after the introduction of MB2 Dental Solutions. The idea of creating a network can be traced to the experiences of Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva when he was still starting his career. Back at the time when the network has not been introduced, Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva can be seen working inside his clinic. He would hear various stories from his colleagues, stating how dissatisfied and unhappy they are working as a dentist. They have never been satisfied with the current system, and Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva began formulating a plan which would address the problems faced by his fellow dentists.

MB2 Dental Solutions was established in 2009. Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva stated that MB2 Dental Solutions will hire several dentists in order to create a large network of professionals. MB2 Dental Solutions will also be responsible for giving these dentists management support, working with autonomy and higher pay. MB2 Dental Solutions was well received by dentists, and they managed to hire a number of dentists during their introduction. Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva is confident that the creation of MB2 Dental Solutions will put an end to the traditional way of performing their jobs. He is optimistic that the dentists will now feel great enjoying autonomy in performing their jobs and better management support in order for them to succeed. Chris Steven Villanueva is still inviting dentists to be a part of MB2 Dental Solutions. He explained that once a dentist decided to join their company, they will be given all of the perks of being a member.

We all know or heard of a few wine brands. Some people associate wines with the rich in the society, but is that really true? Not at all. There are inexpensive brands of wine that also have very good taste. You just need to know the right places to look for.
