JUNGLE THEMED DENTAL OFFICE
King of the Jungle
We traveled 'across the pond' for our first UK office! Patients will feel like they are king of the jungle when they step into this lush jungle themed practice.
The waiting room features both amazing murals and a variety of sculptures. Colorful custom benches with the bases made to look like crates line the perimeter and feature some wild characters for kids to interact with. Seated in the corner is an adorable hippo reading to her baby and is a great place for kids to snap a photo. An orangutan happily sits atop a game tower with built in tablet games, great for passing the time before appointments!
In the center of the waiting room is the reception desk with a beautiful sculpted tree that can be enjoyed from every angle. Here you can see how well our theming integrates with the client’s selection of a natural looking wood for the desk. Even the little sculpted monkey in the tree agrees!
The fun continues in the hallways where a baby elephant busting through a wall will surely delight kids passing by. Additional details like a prize tower, a gaming nook, and a coffee station for parents make this space an incredible experience for everyone!
The clean design in the treatment and sedation rooms are set off by a combination of beautiful wall murals and faux windows that carry the theme throughout the space without encroaching on workspace.
Outside the entrance there is an adorable giraffe sculpture holding a sign and greeting patients as they come in. The whole thing is mounted on wheels and can be rolled back inside at night or moved wherever it needs to go.
I saw the importance of paediatric services in an urban area and decided to invest in a practice located in the heart of London, UK. Paediatric practices are relatively common in other countries, including the USA, but we believe there are certainly not enough of them here in the UK. In the UK, paediatric dentistry is covered by a government program, and children are seen for free, so it was important to differentiate our office in everything from dental technology and our team of experts, to an amazing design filled with theming by IDS. No one else here has anything like this.
We wanted our new practice to resemble a children’s theme park rather than a regular dental surgery, with the aim of attracting younger patients who would want to stay with us for a long time.
We are definitely recognized as a very cool and innovative office with a different approach to dentistry - which is often seen as a very boring subject in the UK. When we opened our doors for the first time we had no patients, but now our patient numbers are growing day-by-day and we are well on the way to achieving our dream. Patients love coming for their appointments and referring clinicians are happy with our service overall, so theming is one of the things that differentiates us from other London dentists.
