Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva is the founder of MB2 Dental, which is a dental office that involves large group practices and private practices. His focus at the time of creating MB2 Dental was to include the best from both practices. He has experience in both worlds as a dentist so when he decided to start the company; he knew exactly what he needed to do to ensure that his dental practice succeeded. Currently, the business has 70 locations in six different states with 533 employees. Dr. Villanueva is committed to focusing on more than just profits within the company. Each day he works towards bringing new ways of running the businesses to create inspired employees. The goals he surrounded himself in while building MB2 Dental was to focus on a firm that offers support, personal growth and ensuring a fun environment. MB2 Dental works to help different practices improve their business structure and promote improvements in relation to operating standards. Within the operational standards lies happier practitioners and better employee satisfaction.
After graduating from dental school, Dr. Villanueva needed to decide which direction to go. He could join a large practice or he could start a practice of his own. MB2 Dental evolved after the decision to form the two worlds together. By working diligently and focusing on his goals, he has been able to build the practice into a successful business. He has set his sights on keeping the company fun, creative and staying out of the way of his employees. Often times, too many CEO’s and managers get too involved and begin to micromanage. He has found that if he just lets them run with their ideas, it creates efficiency and keeps the staff more inspired. Dr. Villanueva has the ability to bring his ideas to life by surrounding himself with really smart people who help interact with some really great thoughts. He has always been a firm believer that most are better together than alone.
Dr.Villanueva has worked hard to build a successful practice full of dedication and commitment with a light-hearted atmosphere. He continues to thrive on the innovation and technology that the industry is leaning towards. Early on in the business, he was determined to surround the business with the doctors involved and provided everything possible for their community-based practice. With doing so, he has been able to combine the positive nature of the business along with many expert dentists.
