Are you a dental professional looking to redesign or construct your office? Have you given a thought to any key areas which you may need to consider before finalizing a designer and/or contractor to build/renovate your space? If not, you should hold on a little and consider these four crucial aspects of the construction or remodeling of dental practice.
1. Your level of involvement in the entire process
You can be either type of a dentist, those who get fully involved in the design/construction process, or others who put their trust in the hired contractor. Although it’s crucial to know or decide the reporting level, decision-taking, and updates your contractor will provide you with, it’s also important to work with a contractor who will automatically brief you with necessary details daily or weekly/monthly.
2. What is more feasible? Working with design/construct one team or separate designer and builder.
Not every contractor has an in-house designer, but they are happy to work with a third-party resource. This means you’ll have to go a little extra mile and hire an outside designer. What’s important is that the designer understands your goals, acknowledges them, AND stays on the same page as your contractor. Many dental and medical professionals find it easy and simple to hire a construction team that has in-house designers.
3. What should things be covered in your budget?
Budget and timeline are two major triggers of every construction project. And renovation or construction of a dental office is no different. If you are a dentist and currently refurbishing your existing dental practice or building a new one, every minute spent on the project means you’re not making any money.
That is the reason it’s crucial to set priorities at the start. Most dental professionals want to ensure these 3 things are included in their budget:
- Outstanding location with little to no work on basic infrastructure.
- Reliable, comfortable, and easily maintained space.
- An immediately operational office with every corner looking and operating perfectly.
Make sure your goals are well defined, prioritized, and understood
If you want to make sure that the designing and construction of your dental office is going exactly like you imagined or wished, you’ll have to collaborate with a team that you trust and feel confident about. Any recommendations from your coworkers or friends are more than welcome but shouldn’t be the case here. Instead, it would be best to physically meet the entire team, including a designer, contractor, and any other key members involved, to ensure they prioritize and understand your vision for your practice.
