North Dental Studio, Ontario, Canada
North Dental Studio opened in early 2023 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Owner Dr. Sukhjit Singh sought a modern and welcoming space that would stand out in the market using a minimal aesthetic, comfortable furnishings, and live greenery in the clinic.
The clinic location was chosen for its proximity to one of Canada’s fastest growing cities as well as the University of Waterloo where many of the dental clinic’s patients attend.
Situated on the ground floor of a mixed-used building, the 1,860-square-foot clinic houses seven treatment rooms, a consultation room, panoramic X-ray room, sterilization room, lab, and offices.
Interior design features
The interior design, by Prop Architecture (Toronto), combines warm walnut textures with deep forest greens to create an ambiance that’s designed to put patients and staff at ease.
The waiting area includes plush seating, complementary artwork and decor, and live greenery.
The treatment rooms are designed to promote relaxation and comfort. Ergonomic, sleek dental chairs have attached televisions so patients can watch their favorite show during their appointment.
For the tool sterilization center, designers chose a glass enclosure to impart a sense of openness and spaciousness while allowing natural light to filter through the corridor, creating a bright clinic environment.
