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.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
