MB2 Dental Revolutionizes Dental Management

INTRODUCTION

MB2 Dental solutions is a relatively new dental Management Company founded by Dr. Chris Villanueva in 2009, and is predicated on emphasizing autonomy for their network of practitioners; MB2 believes in leveraging specialized assistance, commonly associated with group practices, to enhance the patient-practitioner experience. In an article in IdeaMench, a community resource for entrepreneurs, Dr. Villanueva explains the impetus for MB2 Dental Solutions; according to Villanueva, most dental school students are presented with only two occupational paths once they have received their degree. Oftentimes, dental graduates are tasked with choosing between joining large group practices or starting their own private practice; Villanueva believed that there should be a third option in which practitioners would be afforded the benefits of group practices, but would still be, in essence, a private practice dentist.

REVOLUTIONARY BUSINESS MODEL

MB2 is comprised of an estimated 70 affiliated locations spanning six states and has a workforce of roughly 533 employees, all working in concert with one another to provide superior dental care to their patients. Dr. Villanueva believes that his business model allows practitioners to better concentrate on their role in dentistry without the bureaucratic distractions, common amongst dental offices. Because MB2 Dental Solutions is a dentist-owned business it is markedly different when compared to traditional dental management companies; MB2 Dental provides their network dentist with the following to help them better manage their practices:

 Knowledge

 Guidance

 Personalized Systems

Now that you have a better understanding of MB2 Dental Solutions; let’s get a better understanding of founder and CEO, Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva, DMD. According to vitals.com, an online resource for patients to locate doctors, Dr. Villanuea is an active dentist located in Texas who has been practicing General Dentistry for 15 years and is a graduate of Nova Southeastern University, graduating in 2004.

RECRUITING AT TEXAS A&M

MB2 is constantly looking for ways to further build on their revolutionary business strategy and recognizes that in order to accomplish this they will have to turn their focus towards recruiting talented, and ambitious, dentistry students. On April 20, 2017, MB2 Dental Solutions played host to their final recruitment for the 2017-year; the company focused their recruiting efforts on dental students from Texas A&M College of Dentistry. According to Villanueva, this recruitment process is an annual endeavor, which allows MB2 Dental Solutions the opportunity to engage students interested in learning more about the industry. Although the goal of attending these recruitment events is to recruited talented dentist, MB2 also views these events as an opportunity to bring awareness to certain resources, as well as networking opportunities, that will facilitate career options post graduation.

CONCLUSION
