Kansas Dental Center has won a national design award for its office in Overland Park.
The center was saluted as the Outstanding New Dentist Practice as part of the most recent Dental Office Design Competition. The American Dental Association sponsors the contest.
“We are honored to be recognized for this award,” said Dr. Anthony Papinsick, who owns Kansas Dental Center. “Most important, though, we are pleased that our office is a warm, welcoming space, and that patients feel comfortable during their visit.”
It’s due to the work of several Kansas City companies. HIVE Design Collaborative and Guy Gronberg Architects P.C. designed and engineered the space. Valencia Construction handled the build.
If you visit the practice’s location on College Boulevard, you’ll find walls made with reclaimed wood, a wealth of natural light and a waiting room featuring a large-screen TV and video games – which might make young people not dread going to the dentist quite so much.
“The goal for this office was a modern interior using a combination of natural materials to create a welcoming environment and refined image,” said Kara Bush, the director of interior design at HIVE Design Collaborative.
“Additionally, we wanted the office to be efficient and durable for the day-to-day activities of Dr. Papinsick and his staff. Dr. Papinsick’s clear vision for the design of the space allowed for a successful project and a beautiful interior!”
The Outstanding New Dentist Practice is open to new, remodeled or expanded facilities housing the first practice owned by a doctor or doctors who graduated sometime in the past 10 years. Kansas Dental Center launched in the summer of 2016.
