Cheerful waiting room brightens a visit to this modern dentist office

It looks more like a chic Scandi dining room

The clean-lined, white-and-pale-wood-loving modern look has gone mainstream, just ask the rebranded TGI Fridays in Texas or every other Airbnb rental, or this refreshing new dental clinic in Tianjin, China. For starters, it’s got a whole set of white shell chairs smack dab in the middle of the waiting room.

Designed by Chinese firm RIGI Design, the dental clinic also prominently features a kids’ play area that’s definitely more uplifting than the familiar dentists’ offices with tons of old magazines and cable news playing in the background. Shaped like a tiny house, the play area includes some modern furnishings of its own, vibrant geometric wall decor, plus what looks like a white Eames elephant.

The chosen color scheme—robin egg blue, peach, various shades of pink—works fabulously against the backdrop of wood, glass, and white furnishings. These colors standout in the signage, toys, accessories, chalkboard wall, and more.
