Dental office design is not just about choosing the most beautiful color schemes, light fixtures or wallpaper. Those topics merely skim the surface. The Build Your Future workshops presented by Benco Dental and led by Dr. Tristan Hamilton, revolve around the architectural design fundamentals that promote less stress and optimum efficiency, providing for a happier, healthier way of life.

Create a mission portfolio

Dr. Tristan Hamilton shares these tips below to get started:

Also known as vision boards, mission portfolios allow doctors to view their goals and inspirations. These portfolios act as a check and balance system between the doctor’s wants and the project itself.

Since there are so many working parts todesigning an office, it’s important to keep track of all of them.

The mission portfolios offer a platform to answer questions such as:

  • How many operatories will the practice have?
  • Do you want an existing space, or would you prefer to build one?
  • How much external car traffic do you seek outside of your practice?
    • Are you aiming for pedestrian traffic?

Sites like Houzz.com or Pinterest allow doctors to set up all of their favorite inspirations in one list. Having this list leads to better communication with the interior designers, which ultimately results in an amazing animation of the client’s needs and the designer’s ideas.

What can attendees expect?

Those who attend can earn 8.5 CE credits and gain insight on the following topics:
* “Financing- Putting it All Together” with Charles Loretto, Partner, Cain Watters & Associates President, National Dental Placements 
* “Practice Management Coaching” with Kay Huff, Benco Dental Director of Dental Coaching. 
* “The Power of Interior Design” with Melissa Sprau, NCIDQ, Benco Dental, Manager, CenterPoint Design

3 steps to get started designing your dental practice

Dentist and architect Dr. Tristan Hamilton will guide attendees at a Build Your Future event Sept. 19 and 20. America’s leading design workshops – specifically created for dentists— offer insight on interior design, architecture, financing your project and readying your team for the transformation.

Register today for the two- day September event that will be hosted at Benco Dental’s CenterPoint East in Pittston, Pennsylvania. Call 1.800.GOBENCO or see your Friendly Benco Dental Rep for details. More: https://www.facebook.com/events/2229545497362002/?ti=icl

In a recent interview, Dr. Hamilton shared three steps to get started on designing your dental practice. His guidance helps turn what might seem like a daunting concept into an exciting, rewarding experience.

1. Select the right team

Just like picking the right employees for a dental practice team is so important, picking the right team for designing a practice is vital, too, said Dr. Hamilton. Contact a dental Equipment Specialist, all of the other aspects of your timeline will fall into place.

Staying in contact with a dental Equipment Specialist is especially important because she or he can offer insight on topics like which contractors deliver projects on time, and on budget and created amazing outcomes. The same goes when selecting to select the right architect and interior designer.

As soon as all of your team members are in place, the process will flow smoothly.

2. Create a mission portfolio

Also known as vision boards, mission portfolios allow doctors to view their goals and inspirations. These portfolios act as a check and balance system between the doctor’s wants and the project itself.

Since there are so many working parts todesigning an office, it’s important to keep track of all of them.

The mission portfolios offer a platform to answer questions such as:

  • How many operatories will the practice have?
  • Do you want an existing space, or would you prefer to build one?
  • How much external car traffic do you seek outside of your practice?
    • Are you aiming for pedestrian traffic?

Sites like Houzz.com or Pinterest allow doctors to set up all of their favorite inspirations in one list. Having this list leads to better communication with the interior designers, which ultimately results in an amazing animation of the client’s needs and the designer’s ideas.

3. Attend a Build Your Future workshop

As much as dental school prepares doctors for the day-to-day challenges they may face at a dental practice, a Build Your Future workshop explains all of the intricate parts involved with designing a practice.

These workshops offer the information to create the perfect space for both a practice and patients.

The Build Your Future Workshops address designing an office from start to finish, so doctors are fully prepared take the project head on.

Advice, information and guidance will prevent any pitfalls when actually in the process of designing a practice that will support the rest of a successful dental career.

Those interested in viewing a schedule for Dr. Hamilton’s Build Your Future workshops can do so here.

Just like your team is important for the initial creation ofyour space, it’s important for any redesigning you may choose to do, too.

Having the right team in place is vital to achieving things like compassionate aesthetic, circulation, patient experience and dental team efficiency.

“In order to keep the humanity of dentistry in place, all of these goals much be achieved. Dentists must be able to view their practice through a compassionate lens to create a space where their patients are comfortable.”

Dr. Tristan Hamilton

Everything from the colors on the walls down to your choice of furnishing can help create a practice that destroys dental phobias and hence becomes an award-winning practice.

With the right team, all of these goals can be so easily reached.
