Evans Family Dental is a new office for an experienced Family Practice and Cosmetic Dentist that has been providing services in Austin, Texas since 1999. James “Bo” Evans, D.D.S. started his practice when he joined a group of dentists providing services in west Austin. Dr. Evans decided to begin his solo practice in 2009 and relocate to southwest Austin with the help of Dental Architect, Fred Ballard and Interior Designer, Elizabeth Clarke of Schneider Halls Design.

The project goal was to design an office that incorporated the latest dental equipment and technology while also providing an office with the aesthetics of a Texas Hill Country home. In addition to the 5 Operatories, the 2,354-square-foot office includes a Sterilization/Dental Tray Prep, Dental Lab, Digital Panoramic X-Ray/Processing Area and Mechanical Room that were carefully designed to maximize the function and productivity of the office. Specially selected finishes were used to create a comfortable environment while still being able to function in a dental office.

The custom designed front desk looks and feels like a high end piece of residential furniture on the Waiting Room side even with the mandatory handicapped accessible counter incorporated into the face of the desk. Environmentally conscious design selections such as the dental vacuum being a dry vacuum, uses no water at all. The Shaw Commercial carpet is produced from their Eco-Solution Nylon which is a Cradle to Cradle® certified, recycled and recyclable nylon. Many of the recessed can lights are LED fixtures which have significantly lower power consumption and waste heat.

In September of 2009, Shropshire Construction began the interior finish-out construction of the space and completed the project 73 calendar days later.
