there is one primary mistake many practices make when they set up initially or refurbish … they select their surface finishes on the basis of what they would like in their own home. Whether it is the principal, or a job delegated to the practice manager, this is usually the only experience they have in carrying out the task and becomes the starting point.
Why is this a problem? Well a dental practice is not a home. it is a hard working ‘commercial’ healthcare environment. the surface finishes in a dental practice have a very important job. they must not just be aesthetically pleasing to the eye. they must work in conjunction with each other to create a visual experience that relaxes the patient, and gives them a sense of wellbeing, cleanliness, order, calm and sense of detail.
