Dr. Akhil is a leading dental practitioner in MB2 Dental, which is a dental firm offering dentists the capacity and resources they need to practice in many parts of the U.S. He was born in Texas and was just an ordinary kid as he grew up. Dr. Aphil enjoyed extra-curriculum activities such as scouting, soccer and Red Cross club. Dr. Akhil joined the University of the Pacific where he was part of the accelerated dental program from an early age. Here, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology and immediately joined the doctorate class in the same institution. Dr. Eddy then received the Doctor of Dental surgery degree at the age of 23 years. He then headed back to Texas where he established his dental practice in Dallas. Since then, he has been in the region offering services to patients and is now a very influential person at MB2.
MB2 Dental was founded by Dr. Chris Villanuella back in 2009. Dr. Chris’s vision was to combine private and corporate dentistry in the same unit. In his view, this would benefit dentists and help them reap more satisfactory practice as opposed to the older system. Moreover, there would be no strings attached to the contracts. The venture has now grown and has over 75 workers and 60 dental offices in the country.
Interview with Dr. Akhil
In an interview, Dr. Akhil revealed that he wanted to pursue a career that was as practical as engineering or dentistry. As he spent more time in school, it became clearer that dentistry would be the choice career as he aspired to help people once he graduated from college. Dr. Aphil faced challenges in his practice, particularly when raising capital for his business was concerned. He as well has problems with staffing. He also made some losses, especially at the moment where he bought a practice and sold it at a loss after it failed. Dr. Aphil mainly earns his revenue from dentistry as well as consultancy. His first customers came to the practice from word of mouth, which was his only way of advertising. However, with time, he employed the social media as a marketing tool, earning him more customers. Dr. Aphil believes that his source of success is the people who work below him. He believes that a set of motivated employees moves boulders for the boss and therefore encourages his employees to be the best team and listens to all their complaints and suggestions. One of his core values is that he does not discriminate against patients based on their backgrounds or financial status. Dr. Akhil balances his work and family as he believes all are important. Case in point he works for 8 hours five days a week and half day on Saturdays. He then spends the rest of the time with his family and fiancé.
