·         “This dental office feels high end for the budget that was given. It has a nice mixture of texture and scale within each space. The built in desks for the staff give a 110-park-pl-blvd-waxahachie-tx-High-Res-8home-like feel that would be compelling to work in. The natural light for the patients is a wonderful feature to help release anxiety during procedures. Overall, this design is thoughtful to all users of the space to create a positive environment for a place that most people do not like to go.”
