Dr. Chris Villanueva says that he has surrounded himself with a team of bright people, who help birth new ideas daily. Dr. Chris believes in collaboration before a new idea is birthed. Despite that, he says that most of his ideas are born outside the box as he plays the video games with his kids or when he is taking his lunch at 2 am. Dr. Villanueva also admits that he is a night owl, whose most ideas are born in the night when everyone in the house, including his 4 kids all less than 6 years, are asleep. The Dr. also says that he loves technology as it assists MB2 Dental in offering the best services to their clients. He longs to see more advancement in technology, as this will further improve the services offered at MB2 Dental.
Dr. Chris also says that at MB2 Dental, there is a culture of openness where people have fun and are openly honest with each other. Therefore, he promotes an open environment and lightens the mood so that people can be free with each other.
Dr. Chris also says that integrity is at the center of the activities in MB2 Dental. Also, he states that a practitioner should build business infrastructure before they think they need it. He also believes that vacations should not be going to the beach, but rather on reflecting one’s business daily.
Asked the worst job he ever did, Dr. Chris cites an instant when he worked for a dentist, who had employed the wife as the clinic manager. The calls in the office were made by a non-clinician, and he admits that it made the job suck; it affected the patient care negatively. Dr. Chris admits that having a great team of workers is essential, as having the wrong people brings down a business. Dr. Chris admits that as much as infrastructure is important, the people one surrounds himself with in his business is more important.
Dr. Chris also says that his biggest failure in life came when he and other practitioners decided to open a pizza shop near their offices. The pizzas turned not as good as they thought and they ate them as there were no customers. He says that he learned to stick to what he was good at, which is dentistry.
At MB2 Dental, a friendly business culture makes the difference. The company is technologically advanced and responds to the market needs fast. MB2 also has a team that helps doctors tackle the secondary functions like HR.
