A dentist office construction project is a highly specialized endeavor. It has way more nuances and hidden complications than regular commercial construction. Just considering the intended use of the constructed space – providing highly specialized medical services to patients.
A dentist’s office is like a mini-hospital in certain respects. Would you want an average general contractor to handle the construction of a specialty hospital? Probably not. For the best results and a hassle-free construction experience in the dental industry, hiring an experienced dental office construction firm is essential. In this post, we will discuss the four main benefits of hiring a specialized construction company for your dental office construction project, according to our dental office design and construction experts.
Zoning and building codes related to dental offices can vary widely between different municipalities. Depending on the location of your new dental office, you may have to create highly unique blueprints and adhere to strict building regulations. A less experienced general contractor may not be aware of the specifics of local dental office codes.
The result is costly delays in acquiring the relevant dental office building permits from the authorities. This will hurt your business even more if you have loans – you need the new dental office up and running as soon as possible to make up for the interest payments.
With experienced dental contractors, this is not an issue. A firm that has already developed multiple dental offices in an area will know all about the permits and might even be familiar with the officials involved in the process. They can ensure that you get your permits quickly and without delay.
These days, dentists use a wide array of sophisticated diagnostic devices like digital X-ray and impression machines, Cone-beam CT (CBCT) scanners, dental lasers, autoclaves, and more. In recent years, advanced 3D printing for restorative dentistry is also on the scene.
As the modern dental practice evolves, you will see more advanced and improved devices and machines become the standard. When designing and constructing your dental office in the present, you have to be mindful of future equipment upgrades and the addition of new devices.
An accomplished and dedicated dental office contractor will do a much better job of factoring in these requirements. This can help prevent or reduce the need for future office remodeling, potentially saving your business thousands of dollars!
Space is a finite and incredibly expensive commodity in any form of commercial construction. In a new dental practice, this only gets amplified because you have the need for multiple specialized rooms and spaces in a single dental office or dental clinic. These include:
While allocating all this, you also need to include enough treatment rooms to be able to accommodate incoming patients. Specialized dental office contractors may be able to squeeze in an extra treatment room or two into the blueprints, resulting in additional revenues.
Dentists’ offices need guaranteed access to sterilized and purified water for proper functioning. There is no doubt that plumbing is a major expense in dental office maintenance. You want this system to be set up the right way during the design and construction phase itself.
With an unreliable or less experienced contractor, your dental practice office space may end up with sub-par plumbing and water treatment system that is prone to frequent breakdowns. And when the system stops working, your entire practice also stops, which can cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
To get the best plumbing system in place for your dental construction project, you need the expertise of a firm that has years of experience in building dental offices and medical facilities.
You need a warm, inviting, soothing yet functional, and well-equipped dental office to attract and retain patients. In this area, you may have some ideas about themes and other aspects of interior design. An experienced design team will be your best bet to convert those ideas into a working blueprint.
