Children’s Center for Dentistry : Bloomington, Illinois
5,500 square feet | $750,000
The Children’s Center for Dentistry needed to turn an existing office building into a modern, fully functional children’s dentistry. A unique challenge was the dentistry’s lighting layout, as it required extra coordination due to the fact that patients face the ceiling lights during visits. Another challenge was getting power and water routed through the chairs instead of the walls, to meet the dentistry equipment needs. The building also required utility coordination, as more capacity was needed to power the business.
KED SOLUTION : Creating an Enjoyable Dentist Experience
We worked with the utility company to add electrical capacity to the building, providing necessary power for site lighting and pumps. We coordinated with the specialized dentistry chair vendor to verify proper utility set-up. To prevent patient eye discomfort, we included dimmable lighting in all rooms and provided a deliberate site lighting layout. Throughout the design process, we made sure to balance the function of the space with the experience of the children. We completely overhauled the space, turning it into a fun and functional environment for The Children’s Center for Dentistry.
