For this pediatric office’s second theming phase, the doctor wanted to elevate his existing decor with the addition of more murals and a few waiting room touches. Calming sunset scenes of the nearby everglades were added, while some of the existing sculptures and 3D elements were rearranged to help give the clinic a completely new look.
Visitors are immediately welcomed by a host of fun characters in the everglade twilight. The reception desk features an otter and its turtle friends swimming alongside a school of fish beneath the waterline. Hanging out on a branch, kids can catch a baby otter and its mama holding onto a jar of fireflies. A set of faux windows run along the wall adjacent to the front desk, adding some color without the need for a full mural.
For the waiting area, an impressive half-oval bench with a sculpted underwater base, a row of cattail reliefs, and a blue treehouse makes for an eye-catching and entertaining piece of seating while patients relax before appointments.
Inside the treatment bays, a themed brushing station complete with murals and a branch with more mischievous critters stands out. Here, our client was excited to incorporate a personal touch into the murals by including their own pets, while the open bay features a brilliant wall-to-wall mural for patients to explore while they receive care.
Outside, the office’s mascots can be seen busting through the front of the clinic, serving as a landmark and catching the attention of any passersby. A photo op bench with the practice’s mascots sits outside the office as a great way for patients to remember their visits.

There are many benefits to theming. When I look at the benefits of it, one, it really is a marketing tool because you don’t have to put up a billboard when you have an office like this. It certainly cuts down on a lot of the other marketing we would otherwise be trying to do.
Two, it’s great for the kids, when they walk in the office they have a place where they walk in and go wow, this is really like going to a theme park.
And three, quite frankly for us as a staff, it’s my happy place. When I come in in the morning I might not have a smile on my face, but after seeing these characters and looking at the murals, I got a smile.
