Paradise Valley Dental Studio - Fairfield, California

Calpo, Hom & Dong Architects

Posted: January 25, 2024 | Projects

Paradise Valley Dental Studio relocated their practice into the premier corner space of the new 3329 Building – the prized Suite 88. Sitting above the adjacent sidewalk and the roar of traffic from North Texas Street, the Paradise Valley Dental Studio is well situated in this now iconic California building.

Entering patients are greeted in the two-story high reception and waiting area, with a north-facing window wall. The north exposure and the 30-foot ceiling height provide a very well-lit, comfortable space. Porcelain tile and carpet tiles provide a secure mosaic pattern on the floors.  

Leaving the waiting area, a pattern of multi-color carpet tile planks leads one to the consulting offices and the operatories. Providing full dental services, Paradise Valley Dental Studio includes three open operatories and one private operatory for its patients.

The open operatory chairs receive natural daylighting and a wide view from the wall-to-wall storefront windows. Fifteen-foot high ceilings provide a relaxing and calming effect on the patients. The private operatory is enclosed by glass, both interior and exterior, but still exudes an air of privacy. Porcelain tile planks set off the high-gloss casework in the operatories.

Sterilization, lab, and scan areas are centrally located for access to all operatories and functions of the studio. Circulation throughout the studio is very linear and straight-forward, highlighted by the floor patterns. The high ceilings provide a very quiet area, allowing the dentists to work calmly with their patients. The access to natural daylighting adds to an enjoyable and calming work area for both dentists and patients.

Offices are located in the vertical tower of the building, affording privacy, but are also very open to the views and natural daylighting. A small open office area is arranged on the second floor, overlooking the lobby. The offices afford privacy to the dentists, while still allowing them to be close to the patients.

The new studio has been well received by both returning and new clientele. The dentists are very pleased with the working conditions, the natural lighting, the grand spaces, and the efficiencies of their new dental studio.
