Dr. Chris Villaneuva has worked on both sides of the dental industry – as a private dentist in solo practice, and as a corporate dentist in a larger group. Despite being born here in the United States (in Ohio), Dr. Villaneuva spent many of his formative years travelling around the globe to various places in Asia and Latin and Central America, graduating from a high school in Caracas, Venezuela. He went on to acquire a Bachelor’s Degree in Microbiology from the University of Florida and his DMD from Nova Southeastern.
Dr. Villaneuva brings a wealth of experience to the table given his globetrotting upbringing and his multifaceted experiences as a dentist. In 2007, he decided to build further off of those experiences, founding MB2 Dental Solutions, where he currently serves as CEO, overseeing this one-of-a-kind dental support organization mutually owned by hundreds of fellow dentists. MB2 offers it’s dental affiliates support and assistance in day-to-day operations, without a heavy hand, allowing each individual dentist or practice retain their own standards for records, dealing with patients, and all the day to day minutiae that comes with running a busy dental office. Dr. Villaneuva now employs over 500 people at MB2, with over 70 affiliates spanning the Southern U.S., from New Mexico to Tennessee – and even a few in Alaska, too!
Dr. Villaneuva recognizes that while dentists and their staff across the country may need support and assistance, doing so while abiding by best-practices and allowing them to retain absolute freedom bridges the best of both worlds, and really creates a positive working relationship between the end-user and the support organization. MB2 and Dr. Villaneuva’s work revolve around the concept that dentists working together are more than just the sum of their individual parts, and that when providers come together to assist one another, the person who benefits most in the end is the patient.
A creative thinker and noted nightowl, Dr. Villaneuva lives with his wife – who is also a dentist – and two children in Texas. He enjoys playing with his kids and being a family man while he’s not at the office.
