Visitors and patients check in at an oak curvilinear reception desk and individual kiosks. A restorative color palette of pale green, light yellow, and warm beige, which coordinates with the aesthetic of the Yale New Haven adult dental facility, compliments the rich earth tones of the floor. Special consideration was given to the exam and treatment rooms to ensure equipment clearances and occupant comfort. All finishes and materials were selected to maximize hygiene and promote patient and staff well-being.
