Design Studio helps dentists achieve dream practice

October 18, 2017

The Design Studio, in Booth 1351 in the Exhibit Hall, is an interactive space where dentists can get information, inspiration and resources to design and build their dream practice.

During your journey through the design studio, learn what's important, what to expect and how to plan for an office design project. Consult office planning, interior design and material options with Patterson Dental's design team. Experience virtual office tours and other solutions that simplify the planning process and analyze the financial implications of your project with Wells Fargo's dental specialists.

Presented in partnership with Wells Fargo Practice Finance and Patterson Dental, the space will also share floorplans, photos and designs from recent winners of the Dental Office Design Competition.
