The scope of the Just for Grins Pediatric Dentistry clinic in the Plaza Entrada Medical Office Complex included space planning and design. Studio Southwest provided coordination of the dental equipment including the sterilization area and laboratory. The project included special mechanical requirements specific to dental office design such as N2O and vacuum distribution to various areas throughout the suite.
As a pediatric office, the most important aspect of the design was to create an environment that would make the children feel comfortable. Through the use of different materials, colors, textures and an oversized theater, we created a space that was both fun and inviting for the children and their families. The clinic includes six operatories, two hygiene chairs, three orthodontic chairs, and an x-ray station.
