Programs That Help You Achieve Your Ideal Dental Office Design

Equip yourself with wisdom to create and lead.

Building, expanding, or renovating your practice? Build Your Future®
will quickly bring you up to speed on the fundamentals of realizing
an exceptional office environment—one that lives up to your highest
productivity and branding goals.

We’ll prepare you for so much more than merely choosing interior
finishes and colors. Build Your Future will introduce you to advanced
concepts for maximizing the use of space. You’ll get more ROI from
every square foot—not only in practical ergonomic terms, but also
because you’re fostering team engagement and supporting the emotional
needs of patients. And you’ll leave with more confidence to lead your
project and collaborate effectively with consultants and contractors,
from conception through construction and on to your opening.


Whether you’re building, expanding, or renovating your practice, Build Your Future® can provide the knowledge and skills needed to create the office space that best meets your productivity and branding goals. Learn directly from our friendly dental office design experts who will challenge you to think bigger, think differently, and utilize design to create your success.

Remember: Dental office design is not just about choosing the perfect color scheme and deciding what material should be used on the accent walls. With its highly specialized use of space, dentistry calls for many considerations ahead of selecting interior finishes.

Build Your Future® addresses the fundamentals specific to dental office design, defining the design process while inspiring you to identify the values and goals that will drive your future practice.

Providing Innovative and Practical Dental Office Design Tips

Immerse yourself in our workshop online via Benco’s learning platform and at one of Benco’s two-day workshop events hosted at our outstanding CenterPoint locations.

Build Your Dental Practice

Our workshop can be divided into four learning pillars:

Learn more about how to create your professional brand through dental office design. Our experts will walk you through on what makes a compelling brand and why branding is crucial to stay competitive in today’s economy.

Space Planning
Start with the basics of “how many” and “how big” when planning your dental office layout. We’ll show you how practice size and cost relate to production income and practice goals and help you understand the importance of grouping like functions into spatial “zones” to boost productivity and ease stress.

Interior Design
Find out why an excellent healthcare interior is more than just a pretty face. Dental environments have to be thoughtful, durable, and cleanable – all while relaying a doctor’s brand and desired practice experience. A great dental office interior design can be your practice’s best marketing tool!

Understand the basics of construction types (design-build vs. design-bid-build), what players are involved, and what to expect. When it comes to dental office design construction, it’s crucial to control what you can and anticipate what you can’t.

Two ways to experience it.

Option 1:
Stream and Learn On-Demand.
Grasp All The Basics, At Your Convenience.

The virtual Build Your Future® Masterclass features over a dozen design-centric content modules. Enjoy self-paced access to practical, digestible instruction designed so you can put what you learn quickly to work.

After completing Build Your Future On-Demand, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • Why is my brand important?
  • How many operatories will I need moving forward?
  • How do I speak the construction language?
  • How much square footage do I need?
  • Why do I need a commercial interior designer?
  • Who are the major players in the construction process?

Interact Live and In Person.
