MB2 Dental, the first ever Dental Partnership Organization or “DPO”, just wrapped up its most successful fiscal year. In 2019, MB2 added a total of 79 affiliated dental practices, surpassing the previous high of 29 practices added in 2018. Since its partnership with private equity firm Sentinel Capital Partners in 2017, MB2 has more than doubled in size.
CARROLLTON, Texas, Jan. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The doctor-founded, doctor-led group expanded its territory into four new states in 2019, adding Arizona, Florida, Kansas, and Missouri to its roster. Now totaling 192 affiliated practices, the group boasts over 2500 employees nationally across 12 states.
“When I founded MB2 back in 2007 with just a few practices across north Texas, I never dreamed that I’d see the day where over 400 dentists would be part of this group. It’s rewarding and encouraging to know that something I am truly passionate about can resonate with so many fellow doctors. I created MB2 because I knew there had to be a better option for dentists. I wanted to create more options than what our medical counterparts had, so I banded with my doctor partners to create it,” said Founder and CEO Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva.
MB2’s DPO model is unique in that doctor owners retains a considerable amount of equity of their practice while partnering with MB2. Along with the financial advantages of MB2’s model, owners remain in control of their practice’s personal brand, culture, team, and most importantly, have complete clinical autonomy. MB2 has also made a name for itself as having a fun, family-oriented culture among its doctor owners.
“The growth of MB2 has been very organic,” said Dr. Villanueva. “Together, my doctor partners and I have created a community unlike any other in our profession. Our families vacation together, our spouses and children are friends. The owners are constantly in communication with one another and know they can pick up the phone at any time and call a fellow dentist if they need something, whether that be clinical or personal. We call ourselves a family because when we all get together, that’s truly how it feels. Like a big family reunion.”
MB2 is projected to add another 21 locations in Q1 of 2020, including three new states: Connecticut, Georgia, and Illinois.
