We all want our children’s dental office experiences to be pleasant. An inviting space with plenty of fun distractions layered with calming elements can help eliminate stress and lead to a joyful experience. In order to meet the needs of your tiny patients, it’s important for your dental office to be intentional with the design.

So how can you create excitement in your patients?  ...Rewards!

Rewards for being a good patient can come in many forms, from being able to play on video games, climb through playgrounds, to getting a photo taken with a mascot.

Fun distractions can help kids leave their stresses and nerves at home. Whether it’s a themed movie theater or a giant tree slide, distractions can be fun for little patients AND their parents. Couple these fun distractions with calming themes and elements so patients aren't overwhelmed. Underwater and nature themed spaces are relaxing for the whole family. Upbeat themes, like the rodeo, can also have relaxing elements like comfortable seating. Kids stay at ease and entertained and so do adults.

Every design detail of your office should be thoughtful and purposeful.

Dentist offices can be sterile, which can make children feel intimidated and scared. An intentionally designed office can keep spirits high and kids wanting to come back. Creating a space that makes kids feel excited can make a huge difference in how they take care of their teeth and their willingness to attend appointments.

There are plenty of different ways to design your space, and each design should be unique to you and your clients.

As you begin to think about the design for your office, first you need to understand who you are and who your clients are.

Then it’s time to pick a theme that is in line with this. This part isn’t always easy, so our professional team of designers and consultants will be there to work with you as we figure it out together.

The execution of your theme is just as important as the conceptualization.

Your great idea could be a flop if you don’t have the right team of contractors and builders to make it a reality.

Our team is highly trained and great at what they do. We believe in making dreams come true.

Here are some of our favorite themed offices:

Children’s Dentistry of Murfreesboro

Children's Dentistry of Murfreesboro - child playing on tablet

Children’s Dentistry of Murfreesboro mixes the calmness of the beach with the excitement of technology. This space was thought out from the ceiling to the floor. Every part of the environment is cohesive. When children step into this office, they are transported to a whole new underwater world with so much to look at and play with.

“Our office is specifically designed to stimulate and entertain children to make them feel comfortable and relaxed. We have taken every effort to "think like a child" when designing our office. Our reception area was designed just for children, with video games, puzzles and books. We have a huge collection of children’s movies playing on our big flat screen TV’s, toys, puzzles, and books. Your child immediately senses that our office was created for their comfort.” -Children’s Dentistry of Murfreesboro

Rodeo Dental, TX

Rodeo Dental - boy on a horse

Worlds of Wow has redesigned multiple Rodeo Dentals throughout Texas. This theme is perfect for little Texans because it’s something they are already familiar with. The color palette chosen is colorful but muted enough to create a calm atmosphere. Rodeo Dental’s design strategy is terrific because we’ve managed to fit several entertainment opportunities into one small space without making it feel cramped or crowded. The Forest Hills and Pasadena locations wanted to add some urban elements. The mascot is seen driving a bus on the outside of the play structure and the window graphics. The decor includes brick, streetlamps, and graffiti.

 

“What makes your practice different? Why, the FUN of course! Rodeo Dental staffs dentists, endodontists, oral surgeons, pediatric dentists, and orthodontists. Our team operates with the collective belief that dental visits should – and can – be fun! In addition to investing in state of the art technology, we also work regularly to provide educational and fun programs to kids, teens, and families in the communities we serve.”

Oak Park Family Dentistry

Oak Park Family Dentistry - boy in dental exam chairAt Oak Park Family Dentistry, we’ve managed to make the office itself feel like it was integrated into a forest, rather than the other way around. The tree slide is great for tiny and bigger kids to play on. Forests are calming which is exactly why they’re perfect for a typically stressful environment for children, such as a dentist office.

With Summerville Pediatric Dentistry, we broadened our horizons by creating an even more immersive experience by bringing the treetops onto the ceilings. These small and easy details can make an environment 10x more exciting and immersive for kids. The children of Summerville love to take pictures with our alligator character and the comfy seating is perfect for the parents. This office is a great example on how a theme doesn’t have to be too childish to be fun for kids. It can still look professional and put together.

 

Quotes from the CustomersSummerville Pediatric Dentistry - patients

“My son was scared to go to the dentist so I sought out the most fun looking pediatric dentist I could find. I was not disappointed. From the time we walked into the door there was a very welcoming atmosphere. With all the neat things to look at and play with my son had very little time to think about the appointment being scary. The person who did his xrays and cleaning was great. She was very patient with him and made the whole process seem fun which is an amazing thing when it comes to being at the dentist. I was there with 3 kids and all of them felt comfortable and actually happy to be there. Everyone was great from the Dr to the counter people. We will be back and we will recommend Summerville Dentistry & Orthodontics to everyone we know.” -Rachael C

 

“A wonderful staff and a beautiful facility that is filled with very kid-friendly eye-candy and activities. They took great care of my 2 year old daughter Layla!” -Ryan Pimentel
