Why Dental Office Design Matters
An ideal workflow increases efficiency, reduces miscommunication and waste, and enhances patient comfort. However, few practices are built for the patient experience or to optimize the work of the clinical team. Many practitioners move into pre-existing spaces and make the work fit the space. And, let’s not forget about personal brand. Rarely does a practice’s appearance and ambiance truly reflect the brand of the practitioner.

The Midmark ImpactDesign Seminar, led by Jeff Carter, DDS, and his interior designer wife Pat Carter, IIDA, of Practice Design Group, and sponsored by Midmark Corporation, can help you build or redesign your practice for optimal workflow and enhanced patient comfort, with your personal brand in mind. The Carters have produced 16 national dental office design winners and led more than 300 dental seminars to help dentists improve their practices.

Midmark ImpactDesign Seminar“Today’s dental office needs to be more than just a space to treat patients. It needs to be a statement,” says Jeff Carter, DDS. “Few are designed for the efficiency of the clinical team or patient comfort. Pat and I look at spaces differently. We were asked specifically to create a place where dentists can think through difficult design issues, ask specific questions, understand choices and come out with a vision. That’s how we came up with ImpactDesign.”
