Space Needs and Office Layout
Imagine that you found space for your practice in a prime location at a reasonable price, and then you start moving equipment into the space and discover the square footage is insufficient.
Due diligence up front can help you determine just how much space is needed. Before you sign a lease or loan, consider these steps to help in your decision making.
Determine How Much Space You'll Need
Depending on your financial situation, you may choose to be frugal when it comes to your practice space. As your practice grows, you can consider additional space needs at that time.
In most cases, 800-900 square feet, appropriately laid out, will be adequate space for a new practice. This space might include:
- Two operatories
- Front office
- Dentist's space
- Reception area
