Jackson Brown Palculict Architects designed this project to be a functional and professional pediatric dental clinic while also creating a calming and interactive environment for the children.

The Kitchens Pediatric Dental Clinic is a family business with a specialized staff focused on addressing the dental needs of children. The challenge was to create a facility comfortable to younger, apprehensive children, some experiencing their first visit to the dentist, while not being too childish for the teen patients.

The flow of the office was extremely important, both from a patient experience and for work efficiency. Upon entering, the children find a whimsical and welcoming waiting space with trees, sculpted caves and integrated video games. Once invited to the back, the patient experiences open, naturally lit treatment spaces with views to an exterior garden with waterfalls and landscaping designed to set their minds at ease. Following their treatment, the clearly designed flow guides the children to a special toy alcove on the way to the check-out stations.

Private treatment rooms for more in depth procedures and centrally located support spaces such as x-ray, lab, business offices and staff spaces have also been designed to maximize efficiency of work flow.
