A dental and ayurveda clinic for a couple on one of the prime commercial area of Rajkot – Yagnik Road. Dental clinic and Ayurveda Consulting both has separate entry from passage and internally they are connected via door. Dental clinic design has a simple layout where one enters into waiting area – reception. A single glass door opens towards consulting and dental operatory. Operatory has adjacent laboratory area with basin and storage. Waiting, operatory and laboratory – all three are basically in open layout and are only partially divided by half glass partitions. Ayurveda clinic has one small consulting table and a patient bed for checkup.
Dental plumbing is directly connected with chair from below and dental equipments like suction machine are carefully accommodated in furniture so that nothing is seen outside.
The theme of whole interior revolves around white background walls, light grey furniture in laminate and few highlighted parts in sky blue backpainted glass. This dental clinic is designed in a way that furnitures are not as separate elements but they are continuous bands which are merged with each other and with walls. So the blue backpainted glass band continue from wall panelling to table top and then to table side.
Plenty of natural light complimented with white walls and white flooring and the interior in cool shades of grey and blue, overall creates a calm and peaceful clinic ambiance for dentist as well as patients.
Dentistry itself has very personalised work methodology. Preferences and way of working of every dentist is unique and so the clinic should be designed in synchronization with that method. This makes setup of a new dental clinic design a highly customised job and so it is important that the dentist who is making clinic for one’s self has thoroughly gone in detail about all the aspects.
Design and execution of setup of a residence or an office or even something like a physician’s hospital can be completely managed by a contractor or an interior designer or a family member. But this kind of approach is not advisable while setup of dental clinic, from major decisions to minute details so many aspects requires dentist’s personal attention. Some of these aspects are –
selection of appropriate space for clinic
various options in layout design and choosing the most appropriate one
common operatory for multiple chairs or separate chambers
private consulting room or inside the dental operatory
location of storage and platform around dental chair
location of equipments and dental cabinet of material
arrangement and size of each and every drawer and storage shutter
