2011 Office design of the year

Jan. 4, 2012
Dr. Amber Allen's standout office won Office Design of the Year (small office) from Dental Economics and Wells Fargo Practice Finance.

“Dr. Amber Allen has been very, very busy. During the past six years, she and her husband and business manager, Shane, moved from one state to another, changed jobs, decided to start a practice, found a location, planned a new office, lost the location, found another location, planned and built a new office, and created a start-up practice. … Dr. Allen’s office was named the Dental Economics/Wells Fargo Practice Finance Office Design of the Year (Small Practice) and Outstanding New Dentist Practice for 2011.”

With the office of Dr. Amber Allen in Omaha, Neb., DentistryIQ will begin featuring new office designs and details. These articles will highlight dental office creations from start to finish, beginning with the dentist’s vision and ending with the new state-of-the-art office environment and its equipment.

Dr. Michael Unthank of Unthank Design Group designed Dr. Allen’s office, and Geri True handled the interior design. Dave Daugherty of Goetze Dental served as the equipment representative.

Dr. Allen offers some advice to dentists planning new offices, including, “Plan, plan, plan … pay attention to dentist/population ratios in your desired location, and do not underestimate the value of visibility when starting a new practice.”
