Starting your own business is not an easy matter. It is also not easy to work if you have a supervisor who does not trust you to manage your time. Even in dental practices, there are micromanagers and bosses who want to control every step of their employees. It leaves many dentists not being able to do their job properly and that is not just frustrating, but it doesn’t allow the specialist to grow and learn while they are doing their job. It doesn’t help the practice especially if the managers don’t know much about how dental practice works and what it needs.
Dr. Villanueva found this out first hand. However, he decided to branch out and give the personal practice go. Today Villanueva has several dental practices under his care. Dr. Villanueva works in all of them during the week, but the rest of the time he allows his staff to get on with their job. He trusts his doctors, nurses and administration staff to be able to carry out their work without someone always looking over their shoulder. He wanted to start his practice and be able to work and manage it in peace.
MB2 Dental is an organization that unites several different practices under one management. It offers their practices advice as well as practical support and guidance for people who want to open their practice. Dr. Villanueva has several different titles on his CV. He works as an associate dentist, trainer, and advocates for the model he believes work best. It is a doctor-practice model, and he supports this model because he practices what he preaches to his staff. He wants to make sure the profession is as respected as possible. It is also important to him to encourage people to become dentists and to show his colleagues in a better light.
MB2 Dental encourages people to learn from colleagues and fellow professionals. It organizes a retreat for the staff of the different practices, building an inter-connected and positive relationship between friends as well as colleagues. It is a more personal approach to professionals than other companies offer and people recognize the value of this practice. When things are organized well, and the support is there, people can get back to work and not worry that there will be a shortage of supplies or their schedules won’t be clear the next day.
Sometimes it is the little things MB2 Dental sorts out that matter the most.
