When it comes to the design of your dental practice, it can be easy to overlook the impact of your waiting room. However, your waiting room is actually one the easiest places to do something a little different and let your brand’s personality shine.
Considering that it’s also a key area your patients spend plenty of time in, it’s worth getting your dental waiting room design right.
Many dental waiting rooms are clean and hygienic, but also stark and uninviting. While you certainly shouldn’t give up on being clean, we encourage you to focus on making your waiting room warm, welcoming and comfortable too.
No one likes to be greeted by cold, hard plastic chairs. One simple way to make your waiting room comfortable is to use chairs people actually want to sit on – like this comfy seating arrangement at Coolum Beach Dental.
A splash of colour can transform any room. So feature walls – coloured or patterned – are another great way to give your waiting room a warm, inviting feel. This funky wall at Wellard Village Dental is one example of how feature walls can add interest and warmth.
You may also want to incorporate design elements that cater to kids. For example, you could add “footprints” on the floor that kids can step on as they go to and from the waiting room, or provide a fully-stocked “colouring in” corner to occupy them and make them feel comfortable – like this one at Nundah Village Dental.
