Developing a dental squat practice is a great way to ensure you achieve your ideal practice. You can choose the most suitable location, most suitable building, and start off in the right direction.

The chances that taking over pre-existing practices will satisfy your long term ambitions can be low; as you may be restricted by dated layouts & equipment and a limited downtime to make necessary changes. There is sometimes no chance to sync with your ambitions until a practice relocation happens later on.

Starting with a squat allows you the freedom in achieving a unique practice with your stamp on it, allowing for long term expansion, and with all the modern day legislation incorporated.

When it comes to squats - I love to get to know customers, to better understand the identity of the practice they are looking to create; and develop the brief. Then its so pleasing producing that ultimate design. Interior design can be so beautiful - bringing this into the dental practice, where owners can show their personality & help patients to feel comfortable, is so enriching. It is so warming to see our customers happy with how their new workplace looks.
Jim Hague, Managing Director

What we do

We ensure we understand your requirements, apply our knowledge and experience and work with you to create the best design for your surgery. We apply eight key areas of consideration when working to develop a dental squat practice:


Site Feasibility Service

This surveys any potential new site, or maybe a few sites. Providing layouts and initial drawings for you planning application. As well as rough costings and estimates to help you make an informed choice.

Designs and Concepts

The detail that goes into concepts and layouts is incredible. Our in-house team of CAD designers pair with our interior designer to help you to start to visualise your dream practice through 2D and 3D drawings. 

Logistics & Planning

Project Managers then start to look at organisation and the implementation of the refurbishment. Working with build teams to ensure the new practice is ready and open within the time set.

Equipment Selection

When choosing equipment for a squat project, we appreciate that a budget can be limited. Our team has a portfolio of leading products to suit all budgets, including pre-owned equipment and chair packages.

Future Proofing

Planning spaces for now and the future is essential in any good development of a squat. We help you discuss what areas might wait but ensure services are positioned correctly for when the time comes.

Specialist Trades

Our build teams including specialist floorers and cabinetry joiners work everyday on dental practices. They work outside of normal hours to ensure that your new practice meets the deadlines that we set, with a high standard of finish.

Handover & Staff Training

With a new practice, there is much to consider nearing the end of the project. With a new team on board, its essential for us to provide an adequate handover of the building and the equipment. This will include information on equipment maintenance.

Aftercare and Engineering Support

We want to reassure you that even after a large project like this finishes, our team are going to be there to support you. At the end of the project you will be introduced to our Customer Service team and provided an Account Manager.

Inside and Out

We ensure we understand your requirements for every room in the practice; from exterior, through the front door and past the surgeries, all the way through to staff rooms and storage areas.

Dental Surgery Exteriors

Never to be overlooked on a new practice. The exterior is a marketing tool in itself. Replacement of windows doors and of course signage.

Bespoke dental reception desks

Reception and Waiting Areas

We work with your style and brand here and formulate it all the way through the practice. Considering the requirement for waiting areas, through to display for consumerables.

The Dental Surgery

Discussing with you how many surgeries you might require. Designing the practice for now and the long term. Working with you and your team of dentists to consider individuals needs.

Treatment Coordinator Office and Consultation Room

A popular room to consider these days. Ensuring you have a confidential area to discuss your patients requirements and to sell treatments.

Specialists Surgeries

The configuration in a specialist room can be different to that of general dentistry. Ensuring space for a potential microscope, implant motor, intraoral scanner or milling machine.

Decontamination Room

CQC will require every new practice to have a seperate space to sterilisation instruments. In-line with HTM01-05 we ensure you decontamination room meets the guidelines.

Digital & Scanning Room

As the popularity of digital dental grows so does the need for a space to house everything. We ensure your digital workflow is considered.

Lab Room

If you have the space and the requirement for a lab in your practice, we consider the space, equipment and storage needed.

Our approach

It almost certainly feel overwhelming when planning the development of a squat practice for the first time. There are so different ways to do things, and you will of course have so many questions you'd like answered.

What we find that helps when designing and developing you plan is to break things down into the 4 following areas, which is complimented by our showrooms:


Good ergonomic design creates a working environment where everything needed for a procedure is within easy reach of thus maintaining the health of the team.

Understanding Legislation

We are aware of practice inspections and CQC guidelines as an important part of the modern dentist's life. The need to listen to their directives has become vital.



We understand the need to provide a quality product range for your surgery and practice that we know is reliable and robust, while innovative and world-leading.


In recent years, there has been a requirement for practices not only to provide clinical excellence but also a calming and inspiring environment; that reflects a brand.
