Project Overview

I was introduced to Kirsty and Jim Hague by a colleague after they had completed a full surgery redesign and installation for him at Christ’s Hospital in Sussex. I had also met Jim at my previous practice where I worked as an associate whilst he kept the equipment functioning.

I was at the concept planning stage of designing a new practice and Jim spent a lot of time with me talking me through different processes and design ideas.


Given how stressful a complete redevelopment and build of a squat practice is, the project ran on time and on budget, I was project managing and Kyle my designer at Hague was very tolerant of my tweaks of the design and the need for plans to be modified. There were so many new concepts I needed to take on board and managing the IT side was challenging for me. Artur at Hague was very patient whilst helping and guiding me through the process.

Design and Layout

Once I had found my shop unit to set up a squat practice; before I signed the lease I involved Jim in space design and layout. My shop unit is a tight space and before I leaped into signing the lease I had to feel confident it would work as a two-surgery practice, whilst also ensuring I would meet the necessary compliance criteria. As the project moved forward I was advised on what was needed in terms of the lead time of equipment ordering and choice.


Jim met me many times at 7.30 am or 7.30 pm for me to be comfortable with my choices. I was also put in contact with the many other advisors needed through Jim’s contacts.

”The practice has now been open seven months and any follow up questions I have had have been answered no matter how simple or complex. I also know that my future servicing will be carried out by engineers who know exactly how the practice is built and have detailed knowledge of the equipment. I can strongly recommend Hague Dental who facilitated me to develop my own practice which has been a twenty-year held dream.”
