If you’re in the market for a dental fitout and want to start planning or are completely new to the idea and want to know where to start, we’re here to help you with 3 things you need to know.
- What is a dental fitout? Is a dental fitout what you’re looking for?
A dental fitout is the process of preparing your dental practice with all the necessary internal finishes and equipment. This includes everything from flooring and painting to installing dental chairs and X-ray machines. If you’re opening a new practice or refurbishing an existing one, you will be looking for a fitout contractor to fit out your practice.
2. What is involved in the dental fitout process?
Depending on the requirements for your space and for your business, this will vary slightly from project to project. Involved in the process will be the fitout contractor, architect and/or interior designer and structural engineer. If you are starting a new practice or relocating and need to change the use of your premises, this will require stripping out the existing unit back to shell and core, to then commence fitting out the practice following a design plan and installing required equipment.

3. How long will a dental fitout take?
The time it will take to complete a refurbishment or fitout project for a dental practice is a crucial consideration, as this time out from carrying on your business is valuable. Unfortunately, there are many variables which impact the time it takes to both get on to site and to complete the fitout project. Things like the size of the property and its current state, the availability of materials and regulatory requirements can impact how long it takes to complete a dental fitout.
Working closely with your fitout contractor and providing them with details of what you want for your premises as early as possible is the best way to get an estimate as to how long your individual project will take.
An experienced fitout contractor can guide you through each stage as required for your project. Here at Creighan Contracts, we lead each project, provide expert services, and plan for risks so that we complete on time and on budget.
