Dr. Villanueva Believes That Together Dentists Can Accomplish More

In addition to seeing patients and making their mouths, shiny, clean and pain-free, dentists also have nonclinical and administrative duties they have to handle as well.MB2 Dental Solutions can give dentist the opportunity to put their time and energy into the patients instead of the paperwork. The company provides a practice management service, and it just finished a bi-annual owner’ retreat which involved a 4 day vacation for 40 dentists and their spouses in Cancun, Mexico.

About The Company

MB2 Dental Solutions was founded by Dr. Chris Villanueva, it is a company that strives to provide autonomy, fun, and various levels of support for dentists. The retreats are a good part of the culture in the company. There were dentists from several states in the union coming together to relax and enjoy activities on the vacations. The business structure promotes dentist-to-dentist rapport and allows the dentists to help each other gain success both professionally and personally.

Company Goals

The main principle Dr. Chris Villanueva believes in is that dentists work much better together than practicing individually. Under his leadership, MB2 Dental Solutions has gained over 80 affiliates and more than 1,000 employees located between six states. In addition to the relaxation and like-minded mingling, MB2 Dental offers its affiliates a break from management operations. Business operations such as accounting, training, marketing and other service needs that clinics and sole practitioners need are covered by MB2. Covering the details of micromanagement operations allows dentists to focus more on giving the best care to their patients.

The Initial Purpose

When Dr. Villanueva finished dental school he only had the two options of either working with a large group practice or starting a private practice. Joining the group would give him access to the latest technology, and best practices, while a private practice would give him 100% clinical autonomy, ownership and less bureaucracy. None of options were feasible because he wanted both advantages. MB2 gives him the opportunity to have everything he needs and the ability to place doctors needs, which is placing patients, first. To keep the creativity flowing Dr. Villanueva keeps his home and office environment full of extremely smart people who put the right energy into the ideas. Working with others gives everyone involved a chance to get on board with his ideas as his vision becomes a reality. This concept brings light to the idea that the doctors are better when they are working together.

Aloha Construction – Rebuilding Homes with an Unmistakable Familial Touch

Home is a necessity for people, and when things go wrong, it can also be a source of unimaginable stress. Home repairs, home renovation and even maintenance are never cheap, even if you were ready to pay what was asked, the industry has a reputation for missing deadlines and going over budget. For homeowners of Illinois and Southern Wisconsin though, there is hope, it’s called Aloha Construction.

 

Aloha Construction is a family business founded by Dave Farbaky in 2008 to offer a family approach to the Home repair and maintenance industry. Starting off as a small roofing and siding solutions company to homeowners who were looking for that familial touch and service has now grown to offer all kinds of service from roofing, waterproofing, bathroom repair, vinyl repair, and much much more.


Their service and work ethic have won them many accolades including an ‘A’ grading from the Better Business Bureau as well as the Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Ethics in 2017, an honour only select businesses receive.

 

In fact, Dave wanted to offer an even more complete package to his customers and started Aloha Restoration, Co. A second company under the Aloha Construction umbrella to handle the restoration of houses. They recognize how people will have to handle two companies if their homes were in need of repair and restoration, which would double everything from bills and payments to customer service people, labour, due dates, not to mention the stress would be doubled too in an already stressful time. This prompted Dave to simplify the process and through Aloha Restoration, Co. Dave is able to provide his customers with that very same family-centric approach the Aloha Construction is known for the entire project, from repair to restore the customer’s home, back to its original beauty.

 

And they do it all within the budget and the deadline. They, bring that same focus to their approach to their community, helping out every way they can including donating a new First Responder Truck to the American Red Cross, helping them be equipped to take on an emergency.

 

It’s not surprising why Aloha Construction has grown exponentially in its decade of existence and has become the company of choice for the people of Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.

Adam Milstein supports unity of the Jewish community

Adam Milstein is one of the people have made a great decision of supporting his community at a when it needs him the most. Adam Milstein was born in Israel. He later moved to the United States in search of further education in 1981. He moved together with his wife, Gila. He joined South Carolina University where he graduated with an MBA. After his degree, he embarked on a career in the real estate industry. He made a decision to join Hager Pacific properties in 1983. He worked in this company for a number of years and made it to the high echelons of leadership in the company. He became the managing partner of the company, a position which he holds to date.

 

From the real estate business, Adam Milstein has managed to create a great life in the philanthropy sector. He is one of the prominent philanthropists of Jewish descent. The main reason he joined this area was to change the perception that Jews did not need philanthropists. While he was growing up, he never witnessed even a single philanthropic foundation in Israel. The government was providing all the services, and it looked like there was no need to have an organization to supplement some government functions.

 

While in the United States, he teamed up with his wife to create the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. This organization was created in order to support the activities of the Jewish community, especially in the diaspora. With the challenges facing the community being many. Adam Milstein was of the opinion that the community needs to take drastic measures that will protect the Jewish community from victimization by other communities. With anti-Semitism still a big headache for the community, they had to come up with programs that would unite them.

 

Adam Milstein is donating $1 million every year through the foundation to support the education of Jews living in the United States about their true identity. He wants to see these people become proud Jews who will now fear to reveal about their identity. Adam Milstein remains supportive of pro-Israeli initiatives which will lead to recognition of the Jewish community.

Dr. Mark McKenna: Affecting Multiple Facets of Healthcare

When you set out to start your career some of the most important things that one to your success are the things that motivate you to be better than you were. For some people that drive to succeed is simply not strong enough and their dreams fall by the wayside. Dr. Mark McKenna never felt as though that was an option for his dreams. A CrunchBase article entitled “A Glimpse into What Drives Atlanta Entrepreneur Dr. Mark McKenna” discusses his budding medical aesthetics company and the drive that he has to help it succeed.

For a very early age, Dr. Mark McKenna knew that he wanted to contribute to the medical field. To that end, he enrolled himself Tulane medical school where he graduated and began work as both a surgeon and general medical practitioner. While he was initially committed to the medical field there was always a pull towards something more entrepreneurial. He had felt a desire to grow something from the ground up after seeing the medical practice that his father held. This spirit is one of the contributing factors that helped him create and then sell ShapeMed to the company Lifetime Fitness Inc. for a substantial profit.

His newest endeavor is OVME. OVME is all about elective surgery and the process of making it a more patient-focused experience. The reason why something like OVME was so important to Dr. Mark McKenna is that he had worked in the medical field and he saw the growing need for professionals who were patient-focused in this field. It can become a little jailing to work in an industry where a lot of the work is not necessary. The problem is that even though the procedures might say that they are elective it does not mean that it’s an optional thing for the patient. They may be engaging in this process for several reasons, and these doctors could potentially be changing their lives. Dr. Mark McKenna has created a way for professionals to provide a better standard of care for these individuals through his practice OVME. It is his hope that his legacy will impact many facets of healthcare.

Shervin Pishevar Criticizes Monopolies

Venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar embarked on a wide-ranging tweetstorm in February 2018. He expounded on the possibilities of the stock market, Bitcoin, startup companies, and monopolies, among other important topics. The key to Pishevar’s tweetstorm lies in his predictions that the market would dip in 2018.

As of the summer of 2018, these predictions have come true in a moderate fashion. Shervin Pishevar did correctly predict the fall in Bitcoin prices, though the drop has not been as severe as he warned it might be. “Gold will rise in response (to Bitcoin’s fall). Bitcoin will continue to crash but stabilize at 2-5k range and begin a more stable rise over the next 24 months.”

As far as stocks are concerned, the market has experienced a number of sell-offs, but the market has remained relatively stable. The 6,000 point drop that Pishevar predicted has not yet come to pass.

Pishevar touched on many other topics in his tweetstorm. He pointed to the resurgence of China, stating that its dominance in infrastructure could greatly influence the global business climate. He criticized infrastructure in the United States, claiming that “our infrastructure is in tatters, decrypt and decaying. Our government and companies are trapped in short-term thinking.”

According to Shervin Pishevar, technology innovation is moving overseas and Silicon Valley is losing its dominance. Shervin Pishevar warned of the five American tech monopolies: Apple, Amazon, Alphabet, Microsoft, and Facebook. He stated that these five mega-corporations stifled technology investment in the United States.

“Just like Ma Bell, these 5 giants have too much power, stifling startups,” he claimed. “Uber might be the last giant to eke out before it was too late.”

One sector of the economy that Shervin Pishevar is bullish about is space exploration. He pointed to the exciting possibilities of Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic. He said that the companies would “suffer derision” until their core business was successful.

Shervin Pishevar has a unique and valuable perspective on the tech and financial worlds. While not all of his predictions have come to pass, it is worth keeping them in mind as the months go by.
