What does your dream office look like?
Social media, and access to endless information, make it possible to attempt projects that we otherwise might not. Yet, there are certain projects that are best left to the experts. This is the case with a dental office design project – something that can go downhill fast without the help of a team of experts to guide you through the process.
With Patterson’s DesignEdge team, you have more than one expert. You have a team of experts ready to make your office design dreams a reality.
First, Patterson Dental equipment specialists work closely with dental practices to gain a better understanding of the dentist’s wants and needs, and ultimately what their dream practice would look like.

’We start with a dream,” said Tim King, lead designer, DesignEdge design team. ’Some things we may have to trim down over the course of the project, but we like to start by working with the doctor’s dream.”
Members of Patterson’s DesignEdge team, like King, work together with equipment specialists to help dentists identify a space for the practice – whether it’s a renovation in a current space or a relocation. Once the space is chosen, Patterson Dental team members serve as guides every step of the way.
Using expert knowledge of the square footage required for a practice to function optimally, and an Office Design Checklist detailing the equipment selections and layouts for each room, office designers craft an initial design for the practice. Then, with feedback from the dental team, they rework and perfect it until it’s unanimously approved. They’ve designed thousands of dental offices of all shapes and sizes, improving traffic flow, increasing productivity and profitability.
Because theDesignEdge team serves as a true partner to the practice, they don’t just blindly force a dentist’s dream practice into reality. They offer input along the way to ensure the end goal is both an advanced practice and a wise investment.
