The field of dentistry has various models for developing and establishing offices and businesses. One model is called a dental support organization (dso). Several dentists group together and follow a single business plan and practice. While this model provides strong structure and support, it does not allow for independent operation or sole ownership of the practice. Another model is creating a completely private practice. This allows the doctor to have complete control over building the dental practice and developing an independent business plan. However, this can also lead to poor management decisions, and the doctor often has to turn to an independent business consultant for advice and guidance. Many times, the consultant has never worked in a dentist office, and can only provide general business practice and management advice rather than tailored, unique plans specific for dental offices. MB2 Dental Solutions combines the best of both the dso and private practice to offer a truly integrated dentistry business model.
MB2 Dental Solutions was founded by Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva. When he graduated from dental school, he saw that the only options available to new dentists were either to join a large practice (dso), or work on developing a private practice. The first option left little room for independent work or ownership over any of the business. The second option gave almost no structure or guidance to effectively build and grow the business. Dr. Villanueva developed a new business model where dentists could support one another and maintain their independence at the same time. MB2 Dental is focused on autonomy, support, and personal growth.
Independent dentists join MB2 Dental, working together and with other professionals to help develop innovative business practices that are tailored for each private office. The dentists have access to not only assistance for business management, but a whole range of services including IT support, marketing, human resource management, procurement, compliance, and credentialing. They have access to all of the resources that a corporate practice has, and yet they are able to maintain their independence.
MB2 Dental Solutions is an innovative resource for both new and seasoned dental professionals. New professionals can grow their private practices with confidence knowing that they have access to information and support for all aspects of the business. Seasoned professionals have the support of colleagues for continued training and support. MB2 Dental Solutions closes the void between business process and medical professionalism.

Many real estate experts would consider the current economic situation in the UK a sign that you should avoid investing there until Brexit has run its course. DAMAC Owner Hussain Sajwani however is continuing full force with his next DAMAC Tower as part of AYKON London which at this time is actually ahead of construction schedule. He admits the Brexit situation has put some speed bumps in the road, yet he has been unsurprised by it. His take is that the market is still very valuable in the UK and believes in his plan to expand there outside the Middle East because of the clients from that area he’s noticed renting his Dubai properties. Sajwani says the London real estate market is a bit overstocked at the moment, but he believes within two years demand will pick back up.
Hussain Sajwani really has delved into many business and finance endeavors since graduating from the University of Washington and beginning his own catering company. He still runs it as part of DAMAC’s operations, but mentioned that he shifted from just the food industry because he saw a demand for vacation properties growing in the 1990s, and also saw a good ROI on several hotels he purchased initially. Sajwani officially became DAMAC owner in 2002 when he started his first office, and then laid the groundwork for his first major property, Marina Terrace in 2003. From there DAMAC Properties took off and has become the lead investing company in billions of dollars in Middle East and international properties.
Hussain Sajwani has added several other entities to DAMAC Properties including a ceramic tile manufacturing company, an insurance company and also an insurance company. As DAMAC owner, one of his most noted accomplishments has been joining forces with the Trump Organization in both building luxury housing and even two major golf courses, one of which has already been completed. One of Sajwani’s biggest projects that has risen in Dubai is AYKON City, a conglomerate of buildings that has become almost a city within Dubai dotting the canal by the gulf. Sajwani was recently named Real Estate Legend at an Arabian business awards show.

Some investors may be a little discouraged by the fed’s interest rate hike and perhaps by the inverted yield curve that some analysts have warned about. But even though some investments may be slowed down at the end of this year, others are primed to take off in 2019 including petroleum according to Banyan Hill’s Matt Badiali. Badiali has experience working in and investing in the energy sector, and when it comes to petroleum, he says this is a boom that’s been growing over the last 10 years. The US has pipelines that run throughout the nation that independent companies own and profit greatly from when oil companies are in a boom and have oil flowing through. What Badiali also mentions is that these companies running the pipelines are Master Limited Partnerships, the kind of companies representing freedom checks that he discovered not long ago. Matt Badiali says that though 2018 has put a slowdown on MLPs because of the fed’s actions, he believes lowered interest rates and the ability to borrow more money will prove highly beneficial for them in 2019.
Matt Badiali has had a successful career in geology as a consultant to a major oil drilling company as well as an environmental initiative. He always made it a point not just to analyze rocks, mineral deposits and geological readings, but also to make recommendations to drilling oversight managers and foremen at various sites. Badiali has applied much of that same approach as an investor who likes to personally see what he’s buying into before he does so.
Matt Badiali writes newsletters primarily pertaining to natural resources and energy stocks, but he also is knowledgeable on precious metals and has talked a lot lately about freedom checks. These are also investments that look like stocks, but they actually pay out higher dividends thanks to the laws governing MLP companies and the fact that US energy independence movements have made the time right for buying them. In fact, the total profits coming into freedom checks over these next few years is said to be over $30 billion. You can learn more about Badiali and these investments at his Banyan Hill page and subscribe to his newsletters there.
The survival and existence of financial services companies are normally based on the presence of adequate capital or monetary resources to support all operations. To raise the funds, various methods are used, including the issuance of notes. NexBank Capital, Inc., a company specializing in financial services, outsourced the services of Sandler O’Neill & Partners, L.P. to help as a sole placement agent for the notes that were being offered in private. This means that the general public was not involved and only high net worth investors and specific institutions were invited for the offer.
Following a successful process, NexBank announced that the entire process was a success having made a deal worth $54 million in the placement. Although there are different types of notes that can be used, NexBank Capital opted to place fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes. The two-diversified fixed and floating notes comprise of a five-year fixed rate of 6.375% interest after which they are automatically supposed to shift to floating rate that will be based on a spread higher than the then current three-month London Interbank Offered Rate of 458.5 basis points. After an assessment by Kroll Bond Rating Agency, the notes were assigned a good investment grade rating of BBB.
NexBank has its headquarters in Dallas, and it stands out as one of the largest financial institutions in the state of Texas as it assumes the 11th position. Nationwide, it is ranked as the 161st largest bank. Today, it stands firm on its strong foundation and experience in the industry since its establishment in 1934. Based on the statistics of September 2017, it had become a large employer with 87 employees based at three locations including Mckinney Avenue, Suite 1700, Mckinney Avenue, Suite 1100, and one on Luther Lane.
Having an excellent A health rating, Nedbank’s money market rates are ideal since they are generally 3 times higher than the national average. Based on September 2017 statistics, Nexbank had accumulated assets totaling to over $ 7 billion dollars, and the total deposits were close to the $ 7 billion dollars mark. Supervision by the FDCI helps it offer ideal services in mortgage and commercial banking.
