A Visual Reference for Evidence-Based Design

Medical and Dental Space Planning

 ISBN: 978-1-118-45672-9

THE DEFINITIVE REFERENCE ON MEDICAL AND DENTAL OFFICE DESIGN IN A NEW EDITION FOCUSING ON TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGES IN TECHNOLOGY, HEALTHCARE POLICY, AND THE MANAGEMENT OF PATIENT CARE.

Medical and Dental Space Planning is an indispensable guide to the myriad details that make a medical or dental practice efficient and productive. The unique needs of more than thirty specialties, as well as primary care, are explained in the context of new technology and the many regulatory and compliance issues influencing design. Concepts are also presented for ambulatory surgical centers, diagnostic imaging, clinical laboratories, breast care centers, endoscopy centers, community health centers, radiation oncology, and single-specialty and multi-specialty group practices and clinics. A thorough review of the latest dental technology and many creative space plans and design ideas for each dental specialty will be of interest to both dentists and design professionals. Important topics like infection control are top of mind, influencing every aspect of dental office design.

An inside look at what goes on in each specialist’s office will familiarize readers with medical and dental procedures, how they are executed, and the types of equipment used. Technology has radically impacted medical and dental practice: digital radiography, electronic health records, mobile health devices, point-of-care diagnostic testing, digital diagnostic instrumentation, CAD/CAM systems for digital dental impressions and milling of restorations in the dentist’s office, portable hand-held X-ray, and 3D cone beam computed tomography for dentists all have major implications for facility design.

The influence of the Affordable Care Act has transformed primary care from volume-based to value-based, which has an impact on the design of facilities, resulting in team collaboration spaces, larger consultative examination and assessment rooms, and accommodation for multidisciplinary practitioners who proactively manage patient care, often in a patient-centered medical home context.

The wealth of information in this book is organized to make it easy to use and practical. Program tables accompany each medical and dental specialty to help the designer compute the number and sizes of required rooms and total square footage for each practice. Note that these tables must be requested as an addendum from John Wiley, the publisher. To bind them into the book would have made it too large. This handy reference can be used during interviews for a “reality check” on a client’s program or during space planning. Other features, for example, help untangle the web of compliance and code issues governing office-based surgery.

Illustrated with more than 600 photographs and drawings, the book is an essential tool for interior designers and architects as well as dentists, physicians, and practice management consultants.

“This book has been a definitive reference on space planning of medical and dental facilities for decades. Its timely new edition will keep designers and practitioners ahead of the challenging developments transforming today’s healthcare facilities and practices.”

BILL ROSTENBERG, FAIA, FACHA

“The field of advanced reproductive technology is relatively new. This book is the first to detail the complexities of designing to met clinical needs and the maze of compliance issues.”

DAVID SMOTRICH, MD, LA JOLLA IVF
