FREE DESIGN GUIDES – Learn how to avoid common pitfalls in your design journey

Our Two Free Dental Office Design Process Guides will help you map out a path to success whether you are doing a Site Purchase (buying land and building from the ground up, or purchasing an existing building) or a Lease with a tenant improvement.

The Guides show you where to begin, outline the five key phases of the design journey, and provide a rough timetable for each. From determining your goals, to hosting your Grand Opening, having a plan will keep you on track and help you avoid potential pitfalls.

"Some of our biggest concerns were related to the unknown. How do you get the flow of the office right? How do you make sure everything is in the proper place? How do you create a space that matches your vision and stay within a reasonable budget? How do I know what I don’t know? This is where D/E set itself apart.


"They understood what our mental struggles were before we knew what they were."


They have a great system to help you from conceptual thinking all the way to final design. We now have an office that we are proud of esthetically and functionally. However the greatest complement is when patients state that they have never been to any medical office this nice and have never been treated so well."

"I've always wanted to be in a facility that I just really loved. Our previous building was great but we continued to grow and we outgrew our space and so we built this 6,700 square foot building here in Greeley, Colorado.


"I just wanted that we did it in such a way that the equipment, the design of the building ... exemplified how we approached Orthodontics, and the quality of care that we try to achieve."


Design Ergo has been at it for over 20 years ... They handled every step of the way and it was super, super smooth transitions with the builders and the architects. It was a great experience."

"I cannot imagine going through the monumental task of building a new dental office without Design Ergonomics. The wealth of knowledge that they shared with me, the portfolio of completed projects they could show me and their infinite patience with my many questions were invaluable.


"You could not find a group of people more committed to your success."


They were extremely flexible in allowing me to choose the level of service I wanted…and nothing they designed for me was “cookie cutter”. They listened to each one of my suggestions and made it possible to build the office exactly the way I wanted."
