How MB2 Dental Solutions Helped A Dentist In New Mexico Reduce His Work Load

The tagline of MB2 Dental Solutions is “We Are Dentistry”. What they mean by this is that they fully support sole proprietorship dental offices. They reject the old idea of the industry that you were either alone in your sole practice or you had to become a cog in the machine at some corporate dentistry outfit. Instead, they develop a deep partnership with those want to own their own practice but also have the benefits of being part of something larger. The founder and chief executive officer of the company, Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva, DMD, says that the goal is to provide evidence that those in the dental profession are determined, disciplined, and united in what they offer.

Today MB2 Dental Solutions is partnered with 90 practices spread across six states. This includes 37 dental practice owners and 200 doctors in all. They offer a broad range of business services such as human resources, accounting & finance, billing & collections, procurement, and more. The dentists that partner with them don’t give up their clinical autonomy, though. They also maintain autonomy where they want such as what insurance they will accept from patients and what type of technology they use in their offices. They can pick and choose what business services they want MB2 Dental Solutions to handle and which they would prefer having direct control over.

One of the latest dentists to join MB2 Dental Solutions was Dr. Justin Nylund of New Mexico. He has a dental practice called Taos Dental Group where he has practiced since 2010. In welcoming him on board, Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva said that Dr. Nylund is someone that has shown a strong commitment to those in the community in which he operates. He also said that Dr. Nylund enjoyed the great outdoors and as a person with a family he was very committed to having an excellent work-life balance.It was about three months prior to joining MB2 Dental Solutions that Dr. Justin Nylund saw that there were things at his practice that could really be improved upon. He was doing a lot of work on the business plus seeing patients and it all collectively was really too much for him. He said that he was working 45 hours a week seeing patients and then had to spend another 30 hours doing administrative tasks on top of it. That was why he joined MB2 Dental Solutions as it greatly decreased his workload.
