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
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.
