CARROLLTON, TX, Jan. 17, 2019—MB2 Dental Solutions celebrated a record-breaking year in 2018 having the highest number of affiliated dental practices join since MB2’s creation in 2007. Within the past year, MB2 added 29 new affiliated practices. This achievement marks an unprecedented milestone in the group’s history, and surpasses the growth in 2016 and 2017 combined. MB2’s partnership with Sentinel Capital Partners, formed at the end of 2017, has given the doctor-led organization the capital needed to drive growth for existing dentist partners, and attract new dentist partners. MB2’s growth in 2018 also saw expansion into two new states – Arkansas and Colorado.
MB2 continued its bi-modal growth strategy by acquiring 22 offices and opening 7 De Novo locations in 2018. The Dental Partnership Organization’s doctor partner model enables the group to be flexible in how it approaches different types of growth opportunities.
“The most significant highlight of MB2’s recent growth is that we have been able to expand without sacrificing our tightly-knit culture,” remarked Jake Berry, Vice President of Business Development, “We continue to find entrepreneurial dentists who share MB2’s values and who are drawn to our partnership model. The ability for a dentist to retain meaningful practice-level equity as well as their clinical autonomy, while gaining the access to capital and resources offered through MB2 is a unique value proposition.”
The group looks forward to continuing this pace of growth in 2019 and is already projected to grow more in the first quarter of 2019 than it did in all of 2018.
“This year was both challenging and exciting for us,” said Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva, CEO and Founder, “It’s rewarding to continue to partner with dentists who share the same beliefs and goals that my partners and I grew the company with. At MB2, we have always stayed focused on the doctor. We will continue to encourage positive change and empower dentists to lead the way in evolving our profession.”
