Effective communication is crucial for a successful construction project, and we prioritize keeping our clients well-informed about the process and available options.
If you’re planning to move or renovate your dental office, here are some key considerations to help you plan and get started:
How much does it cost to build a dental office?
The construction costs for dental offices can vary based on factors such as the existing conditions of the unit, size of the space, level of finishes, and the need for new equipment and furniture. On average, dental offices cost between $150 and $225 per square foot. For a 2000 square foot space, the estimated construction costs would range from $300,000 to $450,000.
How long does it take to build a dental office?
The construction timeline for dental offices typically falls within the range of 2 to 4 months. However, the duration can be influenced by factors such as existing conditions, demolition requirements, and procurement processes.
How do you plan for building a dental office?
To plan for building a dental office, we recommend several key steps:
- Set a realistic budget.
- Work with a commercial realtor or broker to find the right location.
- Design and develop the office based on your requirements.
- Start the procurement process early.
- Initiate the construction process.
How much do dental office equipment cost?
The cost of dental office equipment depends on your vision and requirements for the office. On average, allocating a budget of $35,000 to $400,000 for purchasing equipment during the dental office construction project would be reasonable.
How can I save money on building my dental office?
There are several ways to save money during the dental office construction process. One option is taking over an existing dental practice, which can reduce costs and save time. Additionally, working with a competent commercial broker can help you negotiate a better lease agreement and obtain a good build-out allowance from the property owner.
