As a dentist who has seen both the sole-practitioner and corporate side of the dentist industry, Dr. Crhis Villanueva sought the best way to have the two sides merge together. He wanted the support and structure of the corporate dental side, but also wanted to keep and maintain the feel of a sole-practitioner dentist and thus the idea for MB2 Dental was born.
MB2 Dental, now heading into its first decade in existence, has over 1,000 employees and the impact of the company can be seen and felt everyday. With most of the company’s 70 locations in the southwest in states like Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and New Mexico, the region finds itself with the best dental care business model in the country.
The vision behind MB2 Dental came about when Dr. Villanueva was trying to take the dullness out of the dental industry. Too many practices were either too corporate with not enough of a familiar touch, or too small without a business structure. MB2 Dental, and the vision from Dr. Chris Villanueva, put the doctors first, therefore putting the patients in the best care possible. He wanted doctors to have the ability to work together on both sides of the industry. Having the ability to bounce ideas or different techniques off of each other is how Dr. Villanueva felt the best dentistry businesses could run. He has two core values for his company: (1) make the patient experience their best and (2) empower the doctors to make sure the patients are getting the best care possible.
When Dr. Chris Villanueva came into the dentistry business, there were only two options a new dentist could choose. Option one was corporate dentistry where you would have the best equipment and the business side would be completely separated. Option two was starting your own private practice, which meant less bureaucracy from others and more ownership for yourself. He sought a solution that would make the best of both worlds fit. His idea for MB2 Dental blossomed into what it is today through his hard work and perseverance. And of course the support he has shown his doctors and patients have helped put the idea into practice.
