DENTAL CLINIC

 

There are few environments as negatively associated in expectation as a dental clinic. Hygienic and sterile atmosphere, the classical “white colour range” and last but not least the typical smell are very much connected with a feeling of a physical and psychic state of emergency and even abuse. Against this background we should be urging for a radical new understanding of hospitals in general and specifically dental clinics – away from negative prejudices towards an atmosphere of art, well being and relaxation.

The goal is to let patients forget about their fears and relax in a way they would usually expect from a Spa, from Cafés, Restaurants or Hotels. Why not embellish the reality, that a dental clinic provides beauty, health and “wellness”? The visit at a dentist could be seen as a little journey into well-being with agreeable aspects, especially if the frightening “drilling” is becoming more and more a side-treatment next to services such as consultation, preventive check-ups, beauty treatments, dental care and alternative practitioning.

DENTAL SPA

KIDS CLUB

 

The main focus of the extension for a kids dental clinic is the lounge and the treatment rooms for the children. Additional rooms serve as laboratories and training rooms. The continuous sand dune topography creates elements that can be climbed onto. The new wing of the dental clinic contains a vertical garden (with treatment rooms behind it).
