JCPCDR Architecture Elevates the Dental Exam Experience with Paris Dental Studios

Even Parisians dread going to the dentist. Aiming to elevate the oral examination experience through a design-forward, wellness-centered space, a close collaboration between youthful dentists and designers has resulted in a très chic urban locale. Located in the Arts et Métiers area, patients at Paris Dental Studios are greeted by courtyard views and a warm sylvan lobby featuring a floor-to-ceiling continuous wooden ribbon that traverses through the space, making its way between the bearing walls and creating partitions between the consultation rooms. JCPCDR Architecture used a locally produced oak essence to dye the wood a rich brown, which is then highlighted with integrated lighting along baseboards, door frames, and furniture. The tech-forward space also features a carefully curated selection of artworks from the next door gallery, adding an element of sophistication. In fact, before JCPCDR Architecture founder Jean-Christophe Petillault began his design career, he took on medical school where he befriended a Paris Dental Studios dentist. “It was a very natural and prolific working relationship,” Petillault shares, “and we are planning for more studios openings in the near future.”
