The following areas are suggested sizes and can be modified based on your design concept and research that you have conducted for the dental project. You are free to modify the sizes to optimize your design solution as long the functionality of the clinic is met. 1. Arrival and Waiting Area - 23 m2 (200-247 sf) - 10 to 12 seats (consider accessibility, wheelchair users and caregivers) - minimal provision for 1-2 children - flat surfaces (coffee table, end tables) - television monitors - magazine and pamphlet display system (custom or prefabricated) - coat storage for 10 - beverage area - access to wire technology or visitors (can be ipad stations or other forms of connectivity. Consider the best location for the front entrance (branding, legibility of location and type of office). You must provide 3’-0” min entry door(s) complete with automatic door openers if they are a sliding door. • For internal solid doors in general, a side light or vision panel in the door must be provided for safety reasons. The only exception is the washroom doors which would not have visual access. 2. Reception and Reprocessing Area (business center)- 14 m2-23 m2 (150-200 sf) - custom built or prefabricated reception desk. Must be barrier free but also include a zone with a transaction top for sit/stand interactions. Desk should accommodate 2- 2 people comfortably. - 2 analogue phone units - 2- 3 pedestals (box/box/ file) - 2- 3 computer monitors - 1 shared desk top printer, 1 main copier/printer - task lighting The business center should act as a separation between the public and clinical areas. The reception staff will receive and greet patients, answer phones and questions and book future appointments. The reprocessing zone (business center) collects payment for services and products, booking future appointments as well and assisting patients with financial questions. Consideration will need to be given to privacy/acoustics. All the staff need access to the main copy/print area, dental charts and clinic supplies. Consider traffic flow between the arrival and departure of patients in the reception and reprocessing area. Dental assistance will come to the reception, greet and assist patients to the various treatment areas. Thoughtful design consideration to the wheelchair access should be considered in all areas. 3. Dentist’s Private Office/ Consultation Area - Bookcase - Work area/desk/storage (same as office design for commercial offices) - Computer monitor, task lighting - 2 guest chairs for meeting table for 4 people for consultation.
