With three dental office designs in progress here at A3C, we’ve been focused on what makes a great dentist’s office – well, besides good check-ups and free toothbrushes. There are some really interesting articles out there on the topic, and we’ve gathered a few of them here, which include some creative and forward thinking ideas:
- “How large is an ideal operatory?” Taking into consideration ADA compliance and the aging US population, the size of the ideal operatory is growing.
- “How better dental office design can prolong your career” A majority of dentists and hygienists report back and/or neck pain, but ergonomics and good office design are the solution.
- “Coastal-Themed Practice Delivers Serene, Yet High-Tech Patient Experience” Little touches of nature can help an office reflect its regional environment and even relax anxious patients.
- “Classy-as-hell dentist offices we wouldn’t actually dread visiting” Airy, modern, and unique, these exemplary designs show that the dentist’s office doesn’t always have to look like one.
