About IDS

Imagination Design Studios (formerly Imagination Dental Solutions) is a design and fabrication studio. Our artists and engineers create custom-themed environments that make visits to your facility enjoyable and stress-free for your young visitors and their families.

In 2007, after working in the theme park design industry, best friends Dave Nolan, an artist, and Andrew Hulbert, an engineer, created a company that would cater to businesses that serve children and families. IDS was formed, combining their creative talents with a passion for helping children feel comfortable and welcomed.

With over 600 themed projects in dental offices, hospitals, optometry clinics, daycares, malls, and hospitality spaces, IDS is the only theming company with 15 years of specialized experience in serving family-centric businesses.

What is Office Theming?

Office theming is the magical transformation of a regular office into a kid-friendly environment with the addition of playful murals, engaging 3D decor, and interactive gaming.

The 3 Ways Your Office Will Benefit from Themed Decor

1

Your patient’s anxiety is reduced with friendly distractions.

You value children and want to set them up for a lifetime of positive health outcomes. For kids with overwhelming appointment anxiety, it can be hard to know if you’re doing enough to make them feel comfortable. At IDS, we want to help you not only reduce their appointment anxiety but have them look forward to their appointments!

A themed environment helps reduce anxiety and relax patients, making them better primed for their appointments. Kids are excited to visit a themed office making it easier for you to provide them with a foundation for good health.

Dr. Clyde Maxwell, an IDS customer with two themed offices, asks:

What are you trying to achieve with your practice? Are you trying to create the best patient experience possible? Theming is an investment that is going to have a lifetime effect on your young patients.

– Dr. Clyde Maxwell

Your marketing efforts will improve with eye-catching themed decor.

We believe you don’t need a business degree to grow your practice. With the help of IDS, achieving a competitive edge for your business is easy. Themed offices naturally create their own word-of-mouth advertising. You’ll see this happen in the form of positive referrals, social media shares, and great Google reviews from patients, parents, and the community. With each recommendation, you’ll watch your business grow.

Dr. Chuck Hughes tracked his new patients after theming his office with IDS:

 

I would have been happy had my new investment in IDS been responsible for 50% of the new patients tracked. You could have knocked me over with a feather when the results came in after six months… a full 94% of people surveyed cited the exterior theming!!

– Dr. Chuck Hughes

You will find it easier to attract and retain staff with a fun environment.

It’s not just about your patients, it’s about your staff as well. Day-to-day, the office is where dentists, doctors, and their support staff will spend the majority of their time. That means you and your current staff will also appreciate a beautiful space that is fun to come to every day. As an additional bonus, a well designed, themed office will even help you attract, and retain, a skilled and happy team.

Great decor creates an amazing environment for your patients, their families, and your staff.

Mawish Baber, the operations manager at a specialized clinic for kids wellness said:

 

Hiring pediatricians is no longer a challenge – once they set foot in the facility they want to work here because the decor speaks to our philosophy and dedication to helping kids.

– Mawish Baber
