Simply stated, every dental project involves 3 basic steps in the following sequence: 1-Discovery, 2-Design and 3-Construction. To jump ahead in the sequence without completing the previous step is putting the cart before the horse. It is this the investment of time spent during the Discovery and Design phases that will determine the success of the project in Construction.


JoeArchitect starts every project with a Dental Office Design Questionnaire.  It is a tool that we have developed, and utilize with great success, to better understand the doctor’s goals for their new office.  It addresses all the programmatic functions of a dental and dental specialty facility, from front-of-house to the clinical areas, and allows us to tailor the design to the needs and wishes of the end-user. This information also allows us to provide the doctor with an accurate proposal for our services based on the size and complexity of their project.


Good design is not synonymous with expensive design. Good design is a function of proper planning in advance of construction. By assembling the proper team, and providing them the tools to do what they do best, you give yourself and your practice the best opportunity for success. At JoeArchitect we are a seasoned group of architects and interior designers who can address all of your dental design needs. While each of our design professionals has dozens of successful offices under their belt, every office is designed specifically to that doctor’s unique vision.


Quality of construction and attention to detail mean nothing without a thoughtful design and a thorough set of construction drawings. That being said, JoeArchitect has had the distinct pleasure to work with some of the top commercial general contractors in the United States and Canada. In cities where we have worked many times, we are familiar with the construction talent on-the-ground. In regions where we are working for the first time, we work closely with the doctor to identify qualified local general contractors in order to determine the best fit for a specific client or a particular project.

“When we first met Jason and the Primus team we were unsure how to proceed given our circumstances.  My son had just graduated from dental school and we were looking to establish a father/son state-of-the-art practice on a very short timeline. Jason and his team were able to convert a challenging space we found into exactly what we envisioned. Now, after three years in our office and having our office featured in a national dental publication, I can say—thanks to Jason and Primus Dental—we have achieved our goals.”
