"We are pleased by the way Dentec interacted and consulted with us. The team was friendly and approachable. The attention to detail was very good and even though the renovation was completed quickly, the quality of the work was excellent."
From a distance, Geelong’s new landmark on 107 Gheringhap Street resembles more a boutique art gallery than the dental clinic it really is. Indeed, the sophisticated building that houses Southern Dental Specialists will not be out of place on the cover of a gallery brochure. And while the four-chair specialist restorative dental practice opened its doors end-March 2009, it doesn’t look a day older.
Next to one of the Geelong’s busiest traffic arteries, the clinic sits on a spacious lot with ample front of building parking. The clinic has clearly optimised its prime location and excellent exposure with a sublime display. At first sight, the brand spanking new façade of the building and its elegant design are the two things that immediately shine through.
Wall-to-wall, clear glass panels framed by a chocolate brown roof and pillars present a classy but down-to-earth looking exterior.
Even before you step inside, the front reception desk is resplendent in full view, at once exuding an inviting presence to the approaching guest.
Relax in comfort
The atmosphere at the reception and open-space waiting area is warm and cosy, with nary a hint of the clinical environment that one would expect in a dental surgery. Waiting patients can browse through their favourite magazines in a relaxing environment.
Generous space was allocated towards the treatment rooms, enough to accommodate a roomful of specialists, assistants, patients and other family members. Design of treatment rooms was specific to the nature of dental work, varying between endodontics and prosthodontics.
