The beauty of a nicely decorated and ideally laid out dental office cannot be overstated. Patients enjoy the décor, and staff have the benefit of working in an efficient and comfortable space.
We invited Dental Economics readers to send photos and information about their well-appointed offices. Enjoy this gallery from Dr. Ron Ask, owner of Jackson Creek Dental Group (JCDG) in Jackson, California.
"I started JCDG in 1978 in Jackson, population 3,500, with no patients," said Dr. Ask. "We brought on a new partner about every five to 10 years, and we presently have five equal partners who own 20% each, and we're all from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. As typical of active dentists, we all have varied hobbies. However, we are all passionate about providing world class dental care for our community."
When it came to their office space, "The five of us designed every wall, space, hallway, operatory, sterilization, and more down to the inch on graft paper. We hired Parc Studio, a Sacramento interior design company that was recommended by our local dental society. Every inch is designed to professionally welcome our patients and to ideally facilitate providing world class dental services in all specialties for the next 30 years."
Dr. Ask adds that the practice was founded in 1978 and remodeled in 2018. They have been pleased with their Adec chairs, and their cabinets by Andrew Horvath at Mountain Specialties. The office's sterilization manufacturer is Midmark M-11.
Here's a quick look at what makes Dr. Ask and his partners, Drs. Craig Kinzer, Dwight Simpson, Leon Roda III, and Jerhet Ask so proud of their recently designed space.
