Real Estate

Whether purchasing land or leasing space for your new or existing dental practice, it's critical to understand how to make your real estate work for you.

At Patterson, we will ensure that you maximize your real estate investment and make it a strategic piece of growing your new dental practice.

Showcase your unique style with interior design guidance from Design Edge. Make the perfect style statement in your practice, from the front door all the way to the breakroom. Patterson’s Design Edge team will help you create an interior design plan that reflects your style and the way you and your team practice dentistry.

The Design Edge professionals will help you choose a color scheme, select the perfect wall and flooring coverings, and match your equipment finishes throughout your practice. This will help you create the perfect image for your practice and create a memorable experience for your patients.


Partner with a trusted architect to bring your vision to life. As your new practice or remodel enters its final planning stages, it's important to engage an architect who is well-versed in dental practice design. Patterson's Design Edge team and equipment specialists partner with industry-leading architectural firms to assist you with this process.

When you work with a Patterson-recommended architectural partner, you can trust that you're getting reliable services.

Services Include

  • Code Review: Dental offices are required to comply with many local and national building codes, which are essential to the safety of your patients and employees
  • Architectural Permit Drawings: In conjunction with the mechanical drawings created by your Patterson Design Edge team and equipment specialist, most states require an “architectural stamped set” of construction documents in order to permit and approve the project to proceed to the construction phase
  • Construction Administration: Throughout the construction process, your Patterson equipment specialist and the architect will ensure that the contractor is adhering to the original design intent, code and cost

Partnering with a Patterson-recommended architect ensures a streamlined process with the entire team and the successful outcome of your project. Contact your Patterson Design Edge team or equipment specialist today to get started.
