In preparation, Dr. Ameri attended seminars sponsored by Henry Schein, Inc. and presented by Dr. Mark Tholen, a specialist in the field of dental office design principals. The seminars also featured equipment and technology options that would help to increase practice efficiency and productivity. Equipment Sales Specialist Michael Konesheck, Field Sales Consultant Josh Toppass, Digital Technology Specialist Steven Castaneda, and National Design Group’s Genevieve Cicero combined their expertise in effectively managing the many phases and specifications of the project. Henry Schein Dental’s specialists strive to advise and mentor their customers by listening to their concerns and offering the products and services that work to help them accomplish their individualized business goals.
“Through attending the seminars and experiencing a hands-on approach to the equipment ad technology I was interested in, I gained the insights necessary to make choices that would benefit my overall vision for the new office,” comments Dr. Ameri. “The Henry Schein team was integral in the planning, design, and successful completion of the project while staying within my budget.”
“The type of equipment…decided upon was the best in each respective category,” notes Equipment Sales Specialist Michael Konesheck. “From a technology standpoint, the integration of Dentrix and DEXIS products with the computers creates a streamlined and efficient operating system for the office. With this level of equipment and technology in place, there is more time to treat patients and less stress.”
The office design perfectly captures the fresh and simple elements of contemporary style. At the entrance, an 8-foot water feature embedded with the practice’s logo creates instant impact. Twenty-foot ceilings, large windows, sleek oversized furniture, and a custom-made 240-gallon aquarium bid patients welcome in the reception area. Art niches in the main hallway, unique suspended lighting, and attention-getting wall art add drama and complete the sophisticated backdrop that mimics the mood of a luxury spa.
“The Henry Schein team was integral in the planning, design, and successful completion of the project while staying within my budget.”
“My staff loves the new office,” comments Dr. Ameri. “New patients who come through the door say ‘WOW’ as they walk in. Patient flow and productivity have improved greatly because of the design, equipment, and technologies. The practice is building clientele quickly. New patient count is up—about 100 per month now—and we’ve seen a 30% increase overall since we opened. We have a beautiful space to enjoy as we deliver excellent care to our patients every day.”
