It is a crossroad that our dental and
medical clients have faced for years…

Do we stay in our existing location
or do we move to a new space?

Do we renovate our existing space
or do we build a new office?

Whether they choose to renovate the existing site or to build in a new location, discerning dental and medical practices need to leverage the power of impact full design.

The benefits of a well-designed dental/medical office are many:

• it enriches the patient/doctor experience

• it enhances the workplace

• it improves staff efficiency and morale

• it attracts and retains desired clientele

it assists with brand differentiation, distinguishing your practice from competitors

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Increasingly, in the past 10 years, the ambience of a dental/ medical office has become key to patient retention and their willingness to return for regular visits. Liken this to your own experience at high-end restaurants and resorts – if it leaves a positive and lasting impression, you will likely return again and again.

Of course once the decision is made “to stay or to go” the next step is to retain the services of a highly experienced and reliable team of professionals who can design, develop and implement your project in a timely manner so you can back to work–doing what you do best!
