A Fresh Young Face with an Innovative Approach
MB2 Dental was founded by Dr. Chris Villanueva as a fresh new approach to all aspects the dental practice. In pretty much any industry certain conventions become incumbent and over time stale; not allowing for any growth or even any room for new ideas. Many times “the old guard” scoffs at the new generation of entrepreneurs. Villanueva did an interview with Ideamensch in which he talked about some of the factors that led to the creation of MB2 Dental.
- Limited choices out of College
- A Bureaucracy that impeded the practice
- Negative effects on patients
- A desire to create something new and innovative
“I had the idea to create a model where you get the best of both worlds – so came MB2. We put doctors, and therefore patients, first…period.”
—Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva

Villanueva is meticulous and consistent in doing things differently. There is no shortage of stories about callous and egotistical CEOs throughout the corporate world. At MB2 Dental, Villanueva has made collaboration and free flowing lines of communication a must. He explained in his interview how too many CEOs want to control everything and make every decision rather than surround themselves with smart motivated individuals and get out of their way.

The doctor did not shy away from talking about his failures. He briefly recapped his failed pizza business near one of his offices. But always keeping a positive outlook he learned from the experience and is still touting the brilliance of his jalapeno and pepperoni recipe.

In the years to come perhaps the philosophy and practices of MB2 Dental will become widespread; benefitting patients and practitioners.
