There are few environments with more negative associations than dental clinics.
The hygienic, sterile atmosphere, the obligatory “white color palette” and the distinctive smell are usually connected with a feeling of physical and psychological discomfort.
With this in mind, we should be striving for a radical new understanding of both hospitals and dental clinics—moving away from negative reactions towards an atmosphere of well-being and relaxation.
The aim of the KU 64 Dental Clinic and Kids Club project was to enable patients to forget about their fears and relax in ways they would typically experience in a spa, cafe, restaurant or hotel.
Why not embellish the reality of a dental clinic with experiences of beauty, health and wellness?
A visit to the dentist could be seen as a journey of well-being that balances potentially distressing medical treatment by such services as consultation, preventive check-ups, beauty therapy, dental care and alternative practices.
