Issue: Winter 2007

Our designers are trained to take the information from our customers and develop a properly designed plan that ultimately will create productive patient flow while enhancing ergonomics and reducing the staff’s stress. We have also listed the reasons the plans are being highlighted along with how the ultimate goal was achieved. We hope that this information will assist you in planning your new office. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at Jennifer.rhode@henryschein.com.

In 1995, Dr. Nash and practice-management specialist, Debra Engelhardt-Nash, combined their expertise and transitioned the vision of the enterprise to include her specialty as well, creating the Nash Institute of Dental Learning. Its most recent expansion resulted in the 9,000-sq. ft. facility in the Southpark Center of Urban Living, located in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The new office’s high-tech operatories include state-of-the-art instrumentation for patient treatment and the latest in audiovisual equipment. The teaching center includes an onsite laboratory and a sponsor room, where representatives can work with doctors in explaining and understanding their products. “Tim Jones literally designed the clinical facility,” comments Dr. Nash. “I have known him for 29 years. Choosing him to work with was key for me. The choice proved to be one I was very happy with. Service is high on my list of priorities-and it could not be better than it has been with Henry Schein Dental.”

The Nash Institute’s floor plan is ideal for its many activities. Sleek, contemporary furnishings and cabinetry offer a perfect merger of style and ergonomic sensibility. Wood floors; soft, earthy paint and carpet tones; and original artwork by local talents make the decor inviting to all who visit the office. “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.”
