3 Affordable Dental Office Decorating Ideas

3 Affordable Dental Office Decorating Ideas

September 29, 2023 - Arminco Inc.

A recent study found that 36% of US adults fear going to the dentist. The dentist is often viewed as a scary and cold space. 

To change that narrative, we've found three up-and-coming dental office decorating ideas to make your office feel welcoming. That way, your business can prioritize the customer experience and create an inviting space for all. 

Read on to learn more about dental office trends: 

1. Use Relaxing Colors and Light Fixtures  

When designing a dental office, first think about the theme of the office. Consider what colors you want to use, what colors you want to avoid, and how each color interacts with your brand and overall message. 

For instance, if you want your office to feel clean but welcoming, use white, dark blue, and wood accent colors. You don't want your color scheme to be too distracting, but the colors should make the space feel warm, inviting, and professional. 

Similarly, the light in your office should enhance the office atmosphere. We suggest utilizing intricate light fixtures to make the interior design feel more modern and rich. 

2. Make the Reception Area Feel Like Home  

Reception areas should be more than a row of stiff chairs, a magazine shelf, and a toy or two for children. Instead, reception areas should feel like a home. 

Invest in good-quality couches that are sturdy and comfortable for everyone. Place a big flat-screen TV on the wall for entertainment and set up a table with free snacks and drinks. You can even create a small area with video games and activities for all kids to enjoy.  

Adding these design features will make your reception area feel more inviting and happy. Plus, it'll make customers want to go to the dentist rather than view the outing as a chore. 

3. Add Windows for Each Chair 

Patients don't want to stare at a plain wall during their appointment. Instead, move your operating areas to the outside walls of the office so that every patient can have a window. 

Windows provide natural light and an interesting view to make patients feel entertained throughout the appointment. Adding windows in your establishment doesn't just have a positive effect on the patients, but it'll also help your staff. Windows provide your staff with a bright and cheerful atmosphere which can increase productivity and efficiency.
