Chris Villanueva is Helping Practitioners Without Any String Attached

According to EPodcastNetwork, Chris Steven Villanueva founded MB2 Dental. He’s an active practitioner, and his vision is to promote the best of the best from the corporate dentistry and sole-practitioner sections of the industry. After spending time on both provider-business equation sides, Dr. Villanueva launched his business with a direct understanding of what it took furnishing essential support without jeopardizing his beloved profession integrity.

Realizing that dental practitioners were in need of specialized assistance that came without any strings attached, he established MB2 Dental. From that day, the MB2 has supported practitioners at more than 70 affiliated regions across six states. The firm has 33 employees, plus its close-knit leadership is looking forward to maintaining the trend of perfection.

Villanueva built MB2 to be a firm that’s dentist-owned focusing on personal growth, support, autonomy, as well as having fun together. The firm assists practices in making improvements benefiting the patients patronizing them. These innovations are promoting improved operating standards leading to practitioners that are happier and which facilitate the growth of a healthy organic business. MB2 is a young company that is technologically-advanced capable of providing speed-to-market.

In his interview with Ideamensch, Dr. Villanueva recommends people to give themselves time for self-reflection. He has the idea that a vacation is supposed to be vacating people regular day-to-day, not doing something soft and lazy such as just sitting and relaxing on a beach. For him doing this makes him appreciate the simplicity of his day-to-day life when he returns.

Villanueva recommends people to read the book written by Simon Sinek, entitled Start with Why. He said that in their company, it’s essential to have everybody on the same page concerning why they are doing what they are doing. Because the role of everyone is different (from their IT department to billing specialists, to doctors) keeping every person centered around their core values, of making the experience of the patient better, plus empowering their doctors in providing the best patient care that they could, gives meaning to everything they are doing behind the scenes.

He regards the book by Sinek as an afternoon read, which is going to fly by with today’s model of businesses that have created their success around the concept of “why” they are doing what they are doing. It may apply to all the business in all the industries and has helped Dr. Villanueva to set their company’s vision.

Lime Crime Cosmetics Has Some Scandals In Store

Lime Crime Cosmetics was founded by beauty innovator Doe Deere. As the CEO of the unique beauty products, Deere took advantage of the Instagram market. Celebrity makeup artists are consistently posting pictures of themselves using the Lime Crime products. There are thousands of video tutorials seen on YouTube. Doe Deere has her hand in all aspects of the Lime Crime business. In her spare time, she speaks at conventions encouraging other young women to become entrepreneurs of their own. Lime Crime’s mission is to create makeup that will allow you to express your own unique individuality and style. There are items that can be worn for day-to-day to special occasions.

What sets Doe apart from the rest are the innovative ingredients and colors of her products. She came up with the idea for Lime Crime when she was trying to find cosmetics for Halloween to match her eccentric costume. In 2009, Unicorn Lipsticks were born and came in a wide range of vibrant colors in a glittery package.

In 2012, her most popular line of lipsticks was developed called “Velvetines.” Velvetines quickly became all the rage and changed the game when it came to liquid lipsticks. For best results exfoliate your lips before applying. After applying a lip moisturizer, wait 10 minutes before applying your Velvetine signature color. Velvetine lipsticks take a little time to dry completely for a long lasting look. If you love a bold look, then the blood red “Wicked” lip stain is just for you. It goes on liquid and dries completely matte. These Velvetine lipsticks are so high quality and durable, you won’t have to reapply several times throughout the day.

The Lime Crime Diamond Crushers Iridescent Liquid Lip Topper is a brand new line created by Doe. It is a water based formula that can be applied to eyes, lips and cheeks. You apply it on top of your makeup giving you a lightweight look loaded with stardust. They won’t smudge, feel dry or run throughout the day. Diamond crushers also look amazing on bare lips or as a highlighter for your cheeks. All Lime Crime products are cruelty-free and true to color.

Cardiology in and Around New York City as Explained by Edward Honig

Cardiologists are physicians who specialize in caring for the heart. Whether a patient has a condition that is heart related or just wants a cardiac checkup, going to a cardiologist on a regular basis is a smart health decision.

Cardiologists will treat diseases that affect the heart such as congenital heart conditions that people are born with. Many people may not even realize they have them until symptoms send them to doctor or an emergency room. Cardiologists like Dr. Edward Honig do various tests to determine if congenital heart defects exists or other heart problems are detectable. If problems are discovered, early intervention and treatment will keep patients, in most cases, healthy longer with fewer cardiac episodes, if any.

Dr. Edward Honig, whose office is in Glen Cove, Long Island, is very conveniently located to New York City. It’s a 30 minute car ride from the major airports and a little further from midtown. The Long Island Rail Road also has a Glen Cove station making it easy to get to from New York City’s Penn Station or John F. Kennedy Airport.

Cardiologists treat problems with the heart muscle itself referred to a cardiomyopathies. Sometimes, the heart muscle itself is weakened at birth or due to a myocardial infarction, or heart attack. Dr. Honig administers tests in his office in Glen Cove or at Glen Cove Hospital to determine presence of, or causes of, cardiac dysfunction.

Cardiologists like Dr. Honig also treat problems within the elaborate electrical system that is part of the heart’s function. There are several types of illnesses where the electrical impulses are innately incorrectly programmed and can be corrected with simple procedures. A graduate of Duke University School of Medicine, Dr. Honig specializes in all forms of cardiac care. Hypertension is a very common disease and its symptoms are often non existent. Dr. Honig emphasizes this is another good reason for regular cardiac checkups. Medical management of high blood pressure is essential.

Dr. Honig is also very receptive to patients who have other conditions in addition to their cardiac problems. He carefully works with patients’ other physicians to help manage other co morbid issues such as diabetes, weight control, autoimmune problems and kidney disease.

Dr. Honig is a favorite among his patients and colleagues alike. He is personable, upbeat, friendly, kind and optimistic. His patients adore him and his colleagues like and respect him and his work.

Prevention and early detection are important parts of cardiac care, according to cardiologists like Dr. Honig. Annual examinations, especially is their is a family history of heart problems, is extremely important. Cardiac problems can be managed with simple one time procedures in many cases. Some cardiac issues can be medically managed with medication alone. Exercise regimens can help many patients as well, says Dr. Honig.

With proper care, even patients with cardiac problems can lead normal and long healthy lives.
