MB2 Dental: The Medicine-Corporate Breakthrough

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.

Avi Weisfogel Sleep Apnea Expert

Over the last few years, medical professionals have become increasingly aware of the devastating effects of sleep apnea. Serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke are now being linked to sleep apnea. Finding a direct correlation between sleep apnea and these devastating medical conditions has led to new research, driven by a sense of urgency, to find treatment for sleep apnea.

Realizing that 90% of the people suffering from sleep apnea are never diagnosed with the condition Dr. Avi Weisfogel, a leading expert in sleep disorders, has launched a new effort to arouse awareness 0f this serious condition. Dr. Weisfogel is the founder of Dental Sleep Masters, an organization that has been helping dentists treat patients with sleep disorders since 2014. Dental Sleep Masters has recently announced a new model designed to help primary and secondary care physicians, with the inclusion of certified sleep physicians and their research, that will result in better care for their patients.

Under this new model, dentists can offer physicians clinical support for their patients suffering from sleep apnea. As more is learned about this disorder, treatment will increase in the coming years. There are new devices being developed that will improve the treatment of this debilitating disorder. For example, recently the Food and Drug Administration approved THN Sleep Therapy a new device that will soon begin clinical trials.

There are several new alternative treatments coming soon such as small implantable devices that won’t rely on noisy machinery or an uncomfortable mask making it easier for people to cure their sleep apnea.

Opening his first dental office in Old Bridge, New Jersey in 1999 Dr. Avi Weisfogel received many accolades from the community. He was designated the communities Best Dentist for several years. Dr. Weisfogel holds a BA degree in biology from Rutgers University and received his DDS from the New York University College of Dentistry.

It was during these years Dr. Weisfogel began investigating sleep disorders and studying ways dentists and physicians might be able to help their patients who suffer from a sleep disorder. Dr. Avi Weisfogel uses his extensive knowledge of sleep apnea to help dentists and physicians identify patients who they suspect might have sleep apnea and then advising them to urge these patients to seek treatment.
