Dental institutes present their own unique challenges when it comes to dental office design layout and dental equipment needs. Sidekick offers specific examples of newly designed dental institutes, explaining the design process of each.
Midwestern University Dental Institute
Midwestern University’s new Dental Institute in the Chicago suburb of Downers Grove, Illinois, is a new teaching facility that opened in June 2013, featuring a beautiful dental office design. It provides the University’s dental students with a state-of-the-art learning environment while offering a valuable service to the community. Third-year students care for patients, under supervision, using many cutting-edge dental technologies that allow them to experience a wide range of equipment and techniques.
Nash Institute of Dental Learning
Dr. Nash’s pioneering approach to teaching cosmetic dentistry required lots of space to accomodate its Over the Shoulder Programs and the amount of doctors wanting to learn from him. The Nash Institute’s dental office floor plan is ideal for its many activities. “Patients are aware they are in a teaching facility, but still feel comfortable,” remarks Dr. Nash. “We have 35 doctor stations for hands-on training and a teaching room that can be used for 60 students or converted to space for 30 more hands-on trainees. Our main focus is on Esthetics dentistry and team training.”
