Dental Office Remodel Ideas
As with any medical practice, when it comes to running a successful dental practice, one of the most important parts is creating a comfortable and welcoming environment for not only patients, but your staff as well. One way to achieve this goal is by remodeling your office space to make it more modern and welcoming. Many patients become very uneasy and nervous when visiting the dentist and a majority of these options work to creating a calming environment.
Ideas to Consider
Upgrade the Waiting Room
The waiting room is the 1st point of contact for your patients, so it's important that the room is as comfortable as possible. You should have comfortable seating, artwork, and a tv to keep patients entertained as well. In today's modern world, it's also important that you have accessible wi-fi solutions.
Add More Natural Light
If its possible in the space you have, bringing more natural light in to your dental office can improve the office experience. It can make your space feel more open and welcoming, this of course includes adding larger windows or skylights to the office. There are considerations for lighting solutions if the office space doesn't allow for these capabilities.
Use Calming Colors
The colors you choose for your dental office can have a big impact on the mood of your patients. There are a variety of colors that create a soothing atmosphere but studies show that calming colors like blues and greens create a relaxing environment.
Invest in New Dental Equipment
As dentists and dental assistants know, upgrading your dental equipment will improve the quality of care you provide and also makes your office feel up-to-date. This also includes the furniture such as a dental chair for example, to create comfort for the patient.
Create a Separate Consultation Area
When it's time to discuss dental treatment options, having a separate consultation area can help patients feel more at ease in a private setting. Many dental practices have added a separate room with comfortable seating and a desk for consultations.
Flooring is often over-looked but it's an important aspect of your office design. Consider updating your flooring to hardwoord or laminate flooring which is a more modern option.
Most dental offices can be noisy, and this noise can be stressful on patients. An option to minimize this is by adding soundproofing materials to the walls and ceiling to reduce noise levels, in turn, creating a more peaceful environment.
Install a Water Feature
While may seem like a small feature, adding a water feature such as a fountain or aquarium creates a calming atmosphere in dental offices. This will keep patients relaxed during their visit.
Overall, remodeling your dental office can have a very impactful result on the patient experience. When you incorporate some of these elements listed above you will create a modern, relaxing environment that will keep patients at ease.
