As the number of dentists in the U.S. continues to grow, dentistry has become more competitive than ever before. How can you differentiate your practice to attract and retain both patients and employees? You might be surprised at what a role office design can play.
The look, feel and functionality of your dental office can make a big difference in enhancing your practice's image and increasing patient loyalty. It can also boost employee satisfaction and even improve practice efficiency. (Did you know the average office worker loses 86 minutes a day to distractions, and just 63% of U.S. employees say their workplace allows them to work productively?)
Your office may need a makeover if...
Ask employees what they like and dislike about your office design. Tell patients you're considering remodeling and ask what changes they'd like to see. You can do a survey via your email newsletter or social media pages. You never know what might be driving patients crazy.
Designing a stylish office space can create a place where both patients and employees look forward to spending time. Here are some dental office design trends to consider.
When planning your office makeover, consider these practical points:
As you plan and carry out your remodel, be sure to keep patients abreast of your progress. Use email newsletters, social media and your website to share photos and project updates.
