When Dr. Kelvin Mah decided he needed a new office for his dental practice, he knew he wanted, through an intimately designed space, “to create an experience for my patients that was, at once, unique, and yet very patient-centred.”
The result is an inviting, organic, incredibly warm space with a contemporary edge. As one moves through the office, one can’t help but notice the way the space bends and flows: From the 40-foot ceilings, to the use of natural cedar posts and curved furnishings, to the whimsical, floating mobiles, and evocative lighting, which patients of all ages are sure to appreciate and enjoy. This is an office that will attract patients with its inherent ability to calm, relax, and nurture.
When asked what advice, if any, he might give to fellow practitioners looking for new office space (or to revamp an existing one), Dr. Mah offers: “Align yourself with a design team that is truly motivated in understanding your needs. Also be aware that good design is good investment. I wanted to build this office for my patients. Thank you, SSDG, for helping me to realize my vision.”
