1- Sizing Your Dental Practice
Getting the size right is essential to any good dental office design. Your dental office should be able to accommodate your staff and patients, as well as any integrated facilities and equipment you require. Our clients frequently ask us to provide consultations on their, supposedly completed, dental office designs. Close inspection, however, quite often reveals widespread sizing problems. Your dental office should be sized appropriately, to manage patient flow and prevent systems bottlenecks.
2- Inventory Should Be Simple
One of the most common problems for dental offices is creating adequate storage for lab and surgery spaces. Think about the sheer number of tools and pieces of equipment you’ll require. Individual rooms may not adhere to the principles of ergonomics. If you don’t get the right storage solutions, then your workspace may soon become cluttered and constricted. It’s always best to centralize your storage and keep your resupply system out of sight, yet easily accessible. Your staff will often be on their feet, moving from room to room. As such, ease of access to equipment should be at the forefront of your design.
3- Silence Should Be a Virtue
Effective soundproofing is imperative in all dental offices to maintain a relaxed atmosphere for your staff and patients. While dental offices of the past have completely isolated their waiting rooms to solve noise problems, this isn’t the case today. Your patients are like guests, and you should treat them as such. Maximizing your space to create a strong sense of flow between patient and staff areas also allows you to utilize innovative soundproofing techniques. At Apex, we build the skeleton of your office before adding the flesh. Using state-of-the-art architectural design, we can ensure your dental office satisfies your soundproofing needs. Innovative wall and ceiling coverings, plus strategic window and door angles can all contribute to soundproofing as well.
