Recently I added dental office design photos to my growing portfolio of medical spaces. Welcome to the new Timberlane Dental, a state of the art dental facility in Essex Vermont. The dental practice outgrew its previous Essex offices where they were for many years just a few miles away. Because it is a multi-specialty dental practice it needed a building to house everything from general dentistry to pediatric care, orthodontics and cosmetic dental services. Constructed by Neagley & Chase the building houses all of those specialties under one roof.
Again, it’s amazing to see how medical office design has changed. Details like the warmth of wood, natural stone and glass and careful attention to patient comfort make these spaces so inviting. Many people fear the dentist, or at the very least don’t look forward to their check-ups much. That psychology gets turned on its head when your dentist’s office looks like a spa!
Upon arrival you’re greeted to a colorful reception desk with tile, wood and custom lighting. N&C teamed up with Berglind Davis of BSD Interior Design to create the finished spaces. The raised acrylic logo on the back wall adds some great depth and texture and also sparkles like freshly cleaned teeth!
The waiting room is bright and airy and is soaked in natural light.
Around the corner the intake kiosks are private but not confining.The windows on the wall divider tops are a nice architectural detail.
I visit a small dental office in my hometown so the concept of the kids’ brushing room was new to me, but what a fun space! The style is modern here, but also colorful and spacious which is perfect for kids. Again, there’s plenty of natural light this time multiplied by the walls of mirrors. This was one of those times that a tilt shift lens is essential in architectural photography so that you can position yourself to not appear in a reflection but still get the perspective you want.
Even the lab is cozier that what you would expect with the wall to wall wood cabinetry. That carries through the office spaces and exam rooms. Any of the interior rooms that don’t have windows like the office below solve that problem with textured glass doors to let in more natural light.
Leading to the exam rooms are hallways that are both inviting and functional. The rooms themselves are also spacious with large windows and custom finishes. The wood laminate floors make the spaces seem more like home than a clinical environment. Since so much of each room’s function is built in, there’s not a lot of bulky machinery in your face. Instruments and tools can easily be tucked away until they’re needed.
Check this out to really see how this x-ray machine can be tucked away! This is one of the pediatric exam rooms which feature tv screens on the ceiling.
