4 Ways to Spruce Up Your Dental Office!

Posted March 22, 2016 by Jennifer G

March is upon us and it’s officially spring! With pleasant temperatures and sunny skies just around the bend, now is the perfect time for “out with the old and in with the new.”

Spruce up that dental office this spring! From your reception area to treatment rooms, there are plenty of ways to turn sterile environments into places of cheer and comfort. Take advantage of these four simple tips to reinvent your office space that’s both pleasing to your patients and staff.

 

1. Set the Mood with a Splash of Color.

Fun and colorful walls, artwork, waiting room furniture and even friendly colored dental products can ease your patients’ anxiety and calm their nerves. Boring walls and a drab reception area are no fun for anyone. Warm, neutral and inviting colors should do the trick! Try using something from a local artist or scenery specific to your community.

2. Soothing Background Music is Essential.

Catchy tunes can help your patients relax and make the workplace more enjoyable for your staff. Soothing music releases mood-enhancing chemicals in the brain and contributes to the overall environment. Don’t crank the volume too high – choose music that doesn’t distract from conversations taking place between you and your patients.

3. Patient Amenities Add a Personal Touch.

Show your patients that you care about their well-being with a well-stocked reception room. Include basic features such as a coat rack, hand sanitizer, tissues, a TV and a large selection of magazines to make your patients comfortable as they wait. The smell of warm cookies will make your office feel like home. Keep younger patients entertained with an awesome fish tank or monthly coloring contests. A bathroom furnished with warm hand towels and basic toiletries also adds a nice touch.

4. Decorate for Holidays.

Get into the spirit by decking out your office for the holidays and the seasons, too! From your windows to the front desk and treatment areas, celebrate the season with fun and festive decorations. Nothing gives off the vibe of spring more than a fresh bouquet of flowers or the greenery from a new (should we stress living?) plant. The littlest things can have the biggest impact on how your clients feel when they walk through your doors.

Have any tips to add? Let us know how you keep things fun at your dental office!

We are very excited to announce the launch of our new website. Here at XLDent we are always evaluating new technologies and testing new ideas.
