Of all the Doctors we have at our disposal, the dentist is probably dreaded the most. That doesn’t have to be the case though. Creating the best environment for your patients to put them at ease, can make it so visiting the dentist isn’t as scary as most people fear. I’ve put together a list of things you can do find the right art for your dental clinic to suit your needs and make it an inviting and friendly atmosphere for just about anyone.
Decide the style
By taking stock of what your office currently has to offer. For example, are you by the ocean and prefer a nautical theme? Maybe your office is located right in the city and has a more modern feel to it. Having artwork that is the opposite to what your current clinic decor is, can be off putting. It can send out the wrong vibe and make for an uncomfortable setting. By limiting the amount of artwork you’ll have to choose from, you have zero in on the right artwork for your clinic. Try to pick pieces that will tie into your already existing decor, you don’t want to have to repaint your office because the piece you investing in just doesn’t match. Here is a little help in picking art for your decor, it’s advice for the home but it can work in the office.
Narrow down the budget
Be realistic with your budget. Decide just how many pieces you actually need. Do you need a piece in EVERY room, or just the common areas? By deciding ahead of time what message you want to send, you can narrow down just exactly how much you’re should invest in. Possibly a couple of pieces in the waiting room that you don’t mind spending a bit more on and a few smaller pieces in each exam room of the same style but lower on the price scale is the right formula for you. Find out what works for your office, then stick to your budget.
Please your audience
If your office is geared towards children, Picasso is not going to feeling inviting nor will they even care how much time and effort you put into choosing the right artwork. However, if you put something in the room the patient can relate to, you’ll have an easier time putting them at ease and excited about coming back again.
Picking the right artwork doesn’t have to be so daunting. By keeping existing decor, budget, the amount of pieces needed, and matching it to your target audience, picking the right piece will be a breeze. Happy shopping!
