Dr. Chris Villanueva- An Inspiration to Young Dentists

Chris Villanueva is the founder of MB2 Dental Solutions, an organization formed to help doctors to provide the excellent dental care to their patients. The Texas-based dental management firm was established to give management services to affiliated dental practices. After graduating from dental school, Chris who was an active practitioner in dentistry, thought of the idea to create a model where both corporate and private dental practices could work together to deliver excellent dental care. He noted that graduates are often faced with the two alternatives after graduating- to set up a private dental practice or join a large group of dentists already in practice. Having spent a considerable amount of time in the private and corporate dental care practice, he was well equipped with knowledge of what is required to pull together resources and support without compromising the integrity of his profession. MB2 Dental Solutions has since grown to support practitioners in more than seventy affiliated institutions in six states and has employed 533 employees. The company recently announced it would set up a new branch office for Picasso Dental and Orthodontics in Seagoville Texas. Visit sharecare.com to know more.
