When we think of dental offices, the first thing that usually comes to mind are outdated cabinets from the 1950s – mint green and Pepto Bismol pink laminate countertops. Thanks to technological advancements (and increased health standards), dental offices everywhere can enjoy a complete design makeover that is functional yet aesthetically pleasing. Today’s designs and innovations usually incorporate functional cabinetry for equipment that focus around the dentist and his or her dental assistants and staff.
Here are some newer innovations in dental cabinetry design that may ease a patient’s anxiety of going to the dentist:
A Modern Reception and Waiting Area. As soon as the patient enters the dental office, one of the key elements to help the patient feel calm is being greeted by the receptionist. According to Media-Partners, one of six things that customers love to hear is a greeting. That’s why it’s important to design a reception desk that faces the entryway so that each patient can be quickly acknowledged and greeted by the staff.
Concealed Storage for Equipment. Bulky equipment and intimidating tools can really increase anxiety for patients. That’s why having plenty of cabinet storage areas for sanitizing tools and to conceal the dental x-ray is important.
For some people, going to the dentist just might always cause that bit of anxiety. Good design may help ease this feeling by creating a calm, serene, and rejuvenating space that is essential to a healthy work environment. Ultimately, creating an atmosphere of peace and comfort can be the key to easing any type of patient anxiety.
