Quick & Simple Ways to Makeover Your Dental Office

Dental front officeBefore your patient even meets you, your dental office has already made the first impression by way of the reception area and waiting room. Consider your current waiting room and ask yourself what it may say about you and your dental practice. As you start the new year, you may want to consider taking inventory of the reception area and making necessary changes to update your office.

Fast, Easy Ways to Improve Your Waiting Area

Below are just a few easy and cost-effective ways to make your waiting room more comfortable, and help your patients feel at-home:

  • Real Plants – Plants have been shown to generate feelings of well-being and vitality in healthcare waiting rooms. While fake plants can seem insincere, real plants send more a message that you and your staff care about your office. Choose plants that thrive indoors and won’t require much upkeep to look healthy and beautiful.
  • Background Music – Mellow background music in your waiting room can help put your patients at ease and calm any anxieties they may be feeling about their visit to the dentist. Having music playing in the workplace has also shown to increase productivity among the staff, so it’s a win-win for you! Make sure the music is calm, instrumental, and not too loud.
  • Basic Amenities – Small touches can make a big impact. For example, consider having a box of tissues available in your office as well as a coat rack, hand sanitizer, and a water cooler. Provide up-to-date magazines or newspapers.
  • Child’s Area – Lastly, if you provide pediatric dental services, it’s important to cater to your small patients as well. Have children’s toys and books available and make sure that they’re cleaned and sanitized regularly.
