Margaret River Orthondontics, WA.

My original practice in Margaret River was established in 2003 as a satellite practice for my main clinic in Perth. Since then, the practice in Margaret River has experienced a massive growth in patient volume and I had outgrown my original 2 chair clinic. It just wasn’t efficient anymore and an opportunity arose to purchase the adjacent strata titled unit and double the size of the practice. It is when Dr Howard decided to contact Medifit Design & Construct to help and come up with a “functional design and concept paying homage to the area’s surfing heritage on a larger and more sophisticated level”.
“The design process was easy and I couldn’t have been happier with the final floorplan. My brief was fairly open but Medifit understood what functional elements I needed, my preferred workflow and the interior design was what I wanted." Dr Howard said.

The reception counter is presented as a simplistic and light design to allow the existing rammed earth tenancy walls to be appreciated. The full height feature tiled wall conceals the back-office space of the reception for privacy and acoustics. The tiled finish creates a hygienic and unique idea that features throughout the interior to highlight uniformity. Pendant lighting above the counter accommodating for appropriate lighting necessary for administrative work and creates interest whilst tying in the contrasting black features throughout the interior.

“The colour palette used in this space is in continuity with the reception, staff kitchen, steri and lab which provides a sense of cleanliness and professionalism with a slight twist of introducing the bold and fun blue hues in the details of the rear cabinetry and wall paint colours.“ Interior Designer, Elena Circosta added.
The first impression of Dr Howard’s patients is “wow – looks amazing! Best waiting room and reception area they have ever seen!.
“We are very happy with the whole process from start to finish with Medifit. From the initial project scoping, the design, the fitout and the logistical handling of all matters related to a complex project in a regional area, they were fantastic to deal with. The final result speaks for itself and I couldn’t be happier. Pleased to recommend Medifit to anyone looking to build or renovate a dental practice.” added Dr Howard.
