MB2 Dental: reshaping everything

Ask any person about their success and they will flood your ears with their failures, and with their bad ideas that spawned new ideas. The consistent message you will get is that success does not come overnight and that you have to be willing to try new approaches. Obviously, that statement is a weather-beaten cliché. But for Dr. Chris Villanueva, those tried and true clichés are not only a part of the path behind him but also the path he walks every day. Read more on crunchbase.com to know more about Dr. Chris Villanueva.

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

No CEO Horror Stories Here

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. Provide the inspiration and direction. Read more articles on crossroadstoday.com.

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.

I would encourage anyone to read the brutally honest interview. In addition, another article and podcast are available on the Epodcastnetwork.com. Where you can listen absolutely free to Dr. Chris Villanueva cover much of the same information outlining the clear goals of MB2 Dental. In the years to come perhaps the philosophy and practices of MB2 Dental will become widespread; benefitting patients and practitioners.
