Dental Office Design and Architecture – Ep. 54

Guest: Michael Unthank, D.D.S.

In this captivating episode of Endo Voices, listeners are introduced to the exceptional work of Dr. Mike Unthank, a unique blend of dentist and architect whose journey from a practicing dentist to a renowned designer of dental spaces gives him a unique perspective that marries practicality with style.

Central to our discussion is the idea of “zoning”, which ensures that dental practices provide both a patient-friendly atmosphere and a cohesive working environment for staff.

We also cover modern dental design. We navigate the challenges of constructing in high-density areas, as illustrated by Dr. Unthank’s experiences in Manhattan and in contrasting markets in the Midwest. He presents intriguing solutions, like running conduits below the floor and dealing with open-ceiling structures.

Lastly, we touch on the potential future impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in dental design. While AI’s influence in the architectural realm remains to be seen, the ever-evolving nature of dental practice design promises continued advancements.
