Leading Edge Comfort and Technology: Differentiating your Dental Office Through a Renovation
Today, dental offices are quickly replacing their office and its old décor with the latest technology and comfort amenities to provide the highest quality of dental care to their patients.
When it’s time to go to the dentist, it’s no secret that not everyone “jumps for joy” about making the trip. But the truth of the matter is you might be losing clients and preventing new ones from coming in by not renovating.
By investing in the appearance of your office and the quality of your office’s technology, you’ll show your staff and, most importantly, your patients that you care about their comfort and well-being while creating a welcoming environment.
One major way dentists can differentiate their office from the competition is with a renovation that will have patients getting their teeth cleaned in a spa-like atmosphere. Here are some suggestions for you to consider that will help your office differentiate itself from the competition.
Planning Your New Office’s Design
Be sure to discuss with a general contractor what the goals and budget of the build-out are. Remember to always ask for references, extended warranty information, licensing, and insurance when selecting your general contractor.
When planning your new office, keep in mind dental professionals distinguish themselves in today’s competitive market by providing an attractive office environment and painless dental procedures for their clients that will enhance the overall experience.
A modern and contemporary office design with advanced dental technology will send the right message to your patients: you provide superior patient care and truly care about their well-being and comfort.
Design Items to Contemplate
Consider these questions before meeting with general contractors if you are planning on designing a new office.
- What type of lighting is necessary for the new space?
- What type of dental equipment will you need to add in the expansion
- Where will the new equipment go?
- Will you be upgrading your current equipment as well?
- Do you need to upgrade your electrical requirements to support state-of-the-art technology?
- What are your expansion and additional room requirements?
- Do you require other hygiene rooms or surgical rooms to meet your goals?
- Will you upgrade your entire office with a fresh color scheme, new floors, cabinetry, etc., or
- Will you only update the new space to match your existing theme?
Important tip: Be sure to request timelines from your general contractor to ensure your expansion projects stay on track. Any experienced, quality contractor will communicate timelines and project updates with you on a weekly basis.
