Dental practice management companies are generally very staid. They’re formal and dull, both for the employees themselves and those they interact with. Dr. Chris Villanueva wanted to create a new version of a dental practice management firm which had more of a lively, younger atmosphere to it. The company would be very effective at what they do but he wanted his employees and clients to also have more fun while doing their jobs. The result was MB2 Dental Solutions, a company he established in Carrolton, Texas.
Another basic thing that he wanted to create at MB2 Dental Solutions was an atmosphere that encouraged the dentists they work with to network more often. When dentists exchange information with their peers they both learn better ways of doing things but the patients also benefit from having better dentists. Since Dr. Chris Villanueva founded the company with the big idea being, “Patients before profits”, and helping dentists network goes right into this idea.
Earlier in his career, Dr. Chris Villanueva had both owned his own practice and had worked in a corporate setting. He saw firsthand what the benefits and negatives were of each type of dental practice. He decided his company would bring the benefits of a corporate setting to those who operate their own practices. How his company works is that MB2 Dental Solutions and the dentists they affiliate with basically go into business with one another. Both profit from this arrangement while the individual dentists have 100% clinical autonomy.
Many dentists have specialties, such as pediatrics and orthodontists. Dr. Chris Villanueva says that helping dentists network they help their patients. They may not have skill in a particular specialty, for instance, but through their network they know another dentist that does. He says this is another way that his company helps patients receive outstanding care.
Also going into the idea of dentists networking, every year Dr. Chris Villanueva sets up a couple of retreats. The team at MB2 Dental solutions and the practice owners set off to a random location where they get to have fun together. One of these past excursions, for example, involved white-water rafting. Another trip was to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico where everyone and their families got to have a lot of fun on the beaches and other types of activities to do.
