The Role of Office Design in a Thriving Dental Practice

with James Kuester

Dental Podcast

One of the elements of a thriving dental practice is a great facility! One that you and your team enjoying working in and your patients enjoy visiting.  Gary built his ideal facility in April 2011 and he knows firsthand the importance of a great office. One of the goals that Gary had when he built his new office was to strike a delicate balance. He wanted the office to be attractive and comfortable yet not so fancy that it might scare off some patients. I think he achieved that balance! If you are ever in Phoenix, please consider this an open invitation to come visit Gary’s office. Just email him and he will be happy to host your visit.
