Space exploration and fantasy worlds collide in the two themes created for this practice shared between a pediatric dentist and an orthodontist.
Young visitors can have their picture taken at a photo booth shaped like a giant mushroom. It has a built-in touchscreen for selecting options, a camera to take the picture, and an instant printer so patients can take their photo home with them.
This office encourages good oral hygiene through stories that feature a villain named Cavitar who loves sticky bad treats.
“Cavitar’s Corner” is a game room themed with all kinds of candy and has built-in video game stations and a costume closet.
On the space themed orthodontist side of the office, a video game room looks like the inside of a ship fit for visiting the moon. Large rockets hover above chairs in the treatment area and a brushing station features signage that is out of this world.

All dentists are competing for the same thing, which is to have the latest technology, the nicest people, and friendliest environment, but the reality is people hate to go to the dentist. We create an experience that kids really want and enjoy so parents keep bringing them back.
If you look at Disneyland, people establish emotional attachments to the characters, the stories, the movies, and the fantasy that their environments create. We set out to offer that same experience – characters, movies, books and theming. Once children decide they love going to the dentist, they want to take care of their mouths. That’s a primary goal and we have managed to get the formula right.
