Melton Dental Service
Melton Dental Service, Melbourne
The new Dental Health Clinic compliments an integrated approach to healthcare. The clinic, located within the Melton Health Service, is family-orientated and offers a professional environment in which dental students can develop as professionals while providing a much needed community service.
The clinic includes 12 Dental Chairs - with ten allocated as student teaching chairs supervised in conjunction with La Trobe University - and two public chairs, plus a dental laboratory and staff, plant and dental support areas. The overall architectural design sought to create a physical environment that promotes client and staff wellbeing and encourages efficient work practices achieved through the use of natural light, connections to the external environment and a clear way-finding system.
