Dental Office Site Selection Services
Taking the guesswork out of location planning
A surprising number of variables can impact a location’s potential. Some, like exposure to traffic, are obvious. Others, such as nearby business synergies, may not be. We’ve reviewed thousands of sites and have developed extensive criteria and assessment tools that remove the guesswork from what may be the most important decision regarding your new practice.
Our site selection services are tailored to your needs
If you already have possible locations in mind, we can analyze their strengths and weaknesses - and guide you to an informed decision. Or perhaps you’re just starting your search and don’t know where to begin. We will thoroughly study your target area and, depending on your specific needs, provide a detailed list of options where you could optimize the use of existing structures or find locations that would guarantee suitability for a ground-up build.
We interpret the location and population data to discover optimal sites for your preferred demographic.
We make sure that lighting, landscaping and access factors work for you, not against you.
How do I find a great practice location?
Realtors and listing agents often have a stack of rentable/sellable properties that they are trying to offload, sorted by region and square footage. When asking for help from a realtor, more often than not, dentists are given listings from this stack in hopes that they will pick their favorite. The disconnect is that, in order for this to work, a dentist must know the exact parameters and specifications for their vision in order to make sure the property is a good fit.
And it’s not just square footage! Many things can dramatically impact a space’s value when assessing its convertibility into a dental office:
- Is it visible to my patients?
- Does it capture the demographics I’m targeting?
- Is it easily accessed?
- Do the traffic numbers support my new patient goals?
- Can I put a sign out front? And what kind of sign, and how big can it be?
- Does it give me potential for expansion in the future?
- Do I have enough parking for patients and staff given the number of ops I’m building?
These are only some of the questions a dentist should ask about a potential property, but there are many more. And if there aren’t clear answers, there is a huge risk of investing in a property that does not return. Who’s job is it to know? The client? The realtor? The listing agent?
By doing this, we’ve taken the task of knowing these answers and made it into an easy-to-use, safe, and secure service. By using our site selection program, Design Ergonomics offers you all the data you really need to make an informed decision on your investment, and clarity on the return. For us, this is the best way to safely value any listing and rank it relative to any other site (including your existing office).
The sooner you start the process, the faster your dream becomes a reality.
