Dental Office Remodeling: What You Need to Consider

November 18, 2022 - Arminco Inc.

Have you been thinking about doing an office remodel?

Are you finding yourself tired of the layout? Or do you think there is a better way to optimize the space if you do a dental office remodel?

Whatever the reason is for thinking about doing the remodel, there are a few things that you should keep in mind when remodeling the space.

Read on to learn more about dental office remodeling!

Logistical Design

When you think about redesigning a dental office, you need to keep the patients (and the dentists) in mind when designing.

This means that you should have clear pathways for everyone to walk. You don't want to make the walkway too confusing for patients or even dentists to follow. If this were the case, there could be a few run-ins during the day, which could lead to injuries.

The patient waiting room also should have a logistical design with a more open layout with chairs or couches for waiting. The check-in counter should be visible in the waiting room for patients to check in. When designing the waiting room, you want to think about the patient experience - that means considering the furniture you choose, the colors for the walls, and any decor in the room to make sure they feel comfortable while waiting.

Room Size

Consider the room size for each patient when redesigning. You don't want the room to be too small, or else it can be difficult for the dentist to work with the patient or even fit the right equipment in the room.

During a remodel, you may also want to consider foregoing the rooms and creating a more open floor plan in the office. This can make the space feel bigger than it is. Not only will the space feel bigger than it actually is, but there are even more benefits to an open floor plan.

If you get tired of the layout with an open floor plan, you can make changes whenever you want. Patients will also be able to see everything you have to offer in your dental practice from the second they walk back for treatment. Instead of being in a closed-off room, they will feel that they are surrounded by people, which may make them more comfortable.

Take a Pulse Check on Your Equipment

If you are remodeling your dentist office, there is no better time to look at the equipment and see how you can upgrade it or change it out.

If the equipment is old, it may be time to replace it. If the equipment simply needs to be switched out or gotten rid of since it is not used, this would be the perfect time to do it.
