Patterson Today Features an IDS Underwater Office

One of our underwater themed clients was featured in Patterson Today, an online publication by Patterson Dental. The article does a great job of showing off their impressive new office!

Here’s an expert from the article where Dr. Healy of Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry talks about the undersea theme we created for this amazing office:

As many doctors are doing with new spaces, Healy wanted to create a practice that didn’t feel sterile. He wanted it to be a fun place where both parents and children could feel comfortable and excited about dental care. Ultimately, it got him more excited about dental care, too. “You’ll catch me out there playing with the kids more than I probably should be,” he said, laughing. “You have to think like a kid sometimes. So often, kids go to a doctor’s office and it’s not very inviting. Naturally, you know how they’re going to feel. They’re going to be anxious when they come to the back.”

“To give the illusion of being underwater, the walls of the practice are covered in murals with waves and sea life, and there’s even a pirate ship. The results have been amazing,” Healy said. “People often come in for their appointment, and then come in again the next day to take a picture. It’s worked to help keep his patients happy, and their parents engaged.”

“As a parent, if my kid really likes going somewhere, I’m going to keep taking my kid there,” 

“I’ve had a lot of patients that drive by and see it and they say, ‘My son or daughter wants to come here because of seeing this.’ It’s a built–in advertisement of what services I have to offer, and if you have something that no one else has, people want to come there.”

Congrats to the whole team at Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry. Read the rest of the article from Patterson Today
