Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva was born in Ohio, but spent some time in the continents of Asia and South America. He even wound up graduating high school in Venezuela. After high school, Villanueva went to the University of Florida where he received his bachelor’s degree in Microbiology. After he completed his undergraduate schooling, he went on to Nova Southeastern University. At this University he received his DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine). Dr. Villanueva is a compassionate physician, and truly values his work. Villanueva is also married to a woman by the name of Carol. Much like Dr. Villanueva, Carol is also a physician and has her own practice in North Texas. Together, they have four children. Dr. Villanueva has accomplished a great deal since receiving his degree. For years he worked as an associate dentist, associate dentist trainer and mentor, a Dental Director, Practice Owner, and CEO of MB2 Dental. Villanueva’s reason for founding MB2 Dental was because he knew that once he got out of dental school he could either join a practice or start his own. With that, he decided to mix the two, and it led him to success.
MB2 Dental is a dental service institution founded by Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva that provides offices space to practice their specialty. The purpose of this company is to form a connection between the practicing and industry sides of medicine. Prior to forming this corporation, Villanueva has had experience of both the medical and corporate sides of his profession. Another significant aspect about MB2 is that, unlike many other medical facilities, it is owned by a medical professional. A lot of the times business owners or CEO’s and medical professionals bump heads. Some may say this is due to the amount of passion held by medical professionals and corporate rules being enforced on business owners. There are many regulations when it comes to the medical field, but when you are actually a part of it, it gives you a different view on how you proceed. For example, if there is a patient who you believe deserves a certain procedure but due to a number of things, they can’t or won’t go forth with it, you want to do everything you can to be able to help them. When you are on the business side of these situations you mainly only focus on the legal things, not necessarily what is needed for the patient. This is not an intended opposition, but it does happen. With someone who understands the aspects to both sides, it will result in better patient care.
