Here are a few tips when looking to build out your own practice! 

Comfortable Dental Chairs

When designing your opertories you should base the design on the dental unit because everything else will flow around the chair. Having comfortable dental chairs that function efficiently is your number one priority! This is where your patients will sit during procedures and cleanings so you want them to feel comfortable and at ease.

Great Lighting

Natural Lighting, Task Lighting, and Ambient Lighting. You need a great balance of all three in order to make your office bright, minimize eye strain, and perform surgical work. There are a number of different designs on the market today for light fixtures, so no matter what type of environment you’re trying to create in your dental office, you’re sure to find something to suit your needs.

Comfortable Staff Break Out Space

Your staff works hard, so make sure to consider a place for them to take a breather and sit down. It’s important that your office is comfortable for your patients and your staff. After all, the happier your staff is, the happier your patients will be. In other words, it’s a win/win!

Dental Cabinets That Fit Your Space And Enhance Your Workflow

Designing your dental cabinetry is another huge component to an office. When designing your cabinetry you want to think about the order you work, especially when designing your sterilization area. The right dental cabinet design can make a world of difference in terms of both form and function.

Dental Delivery System

Chair delivery or rear support delivery systems are the most common systems. Choose the system that works best for you and your staff and design your space with this in mind. 

Efficient Floor Plan

Ensure your sterilization center is in a central location that is equal distance from all ops to maximize efficiency and reduce time spent transporting equipment and supplies back and forth from one end or your office to the other. Have a specific idea in mind? We can make it happen! Not sure where to start? We’d love to help!

Comfortable Waiting Room

Make your office inviting and comfortable for your patients to reduce anxiety before their appointment. By creating a calming and relaxing atmosphere you can dispel their fears. Having toys and games for kids is a must for keeping them happy and cooperative before and during their appointment. Choose colors that are calming and soothing to decorate your space with and whether your patients actively notice it or not, you can help to subtly put them at ease.
