Making A More Welcoming Dental Office

 The location where you make the home of your business is more than just where you do your work. It’s also the face of the brand, where you can build a lasting reputation, and where you introduce your clients to both your team and your services. There are some businesses, such as a dental practice, that require you to build trust a little more quickly and deeply. As such, here are some ways to ensure yours is as welcoming as can be.

Invest in comfy furniture

If you want your patients to feel cared for and like they matter, then you should invest in making sure that their time is not unpleasant. It might seem like a relatively small part of your business, but patients will often spend at least a good ten minutes waiting to be seen and usually more. For that reason, look at stores like Urban Hyve where you can purchase high-quality furniture to give them a more relaxing place to rest themselves. This way, they’re less likely to be cranky or on edge when it comes time to head into the office.


Model the reception area effectively

You want your reception area to communicate friendliness, openness, and positive vibes. As such, if it is feeling out of touch, then it doesn’t make your business look modern, current, and attentive to detail. Working with teams like Medifit to give your reception area a proper fit-out can help make it a much more welcome part of the business. You want to make sure that the front desk and any amenities are very accessible, too, so consider that the layout doesn’t block these important spaces.


Give a welcome tour

It’s not just about the office and how it looks or feels. It’s also about how well you can help people feel at ease there. If you’re welcoming new patients, you can work on building a good reputation with them immediately by helping them get used to their surroundings. Offering a tour of the office so that they can see the waiting area, any restrooms, amenities, and the dentists’ office can help them acclimate to it and feel a little more catered to. This is especially true for child patients, of course.


Invest in your patients’ comfort

Beyond making sure that they’re comfortable and able to access what they need, you can go a little further and make sure that you cater to your patient’s needs. For one, since they’re likely to be waiting in the reception area for some time, providing free wi-fi is effectively a must, nowadays. However, you can go a little further and offer a snack bar or a hot drink station for them to grab a cup of tea or coffee to help them feel more at ease. Just be careful of where you position any hot drinks stations if there are children around.


A dental office can be an intimidating place to be for the first time, especially for children. Follow the tips above to help ease them into their environment so you can work better with them.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
