Frequently Asked Questions

When you’re planning and preparing for a dental clinic fit out there are usually lots of questions that come up. To help you, we’ve compiled answers to some of the most common questions our clients have about the different stages of a dental fitout.

1. The dental clinic fit out process
How long does a dental fit out typically take?

The time it takes to complete your dental clinic fitout depends on a number of different factors including:

  • the size of your dental clinic
  • the requirements and installations.
  • the general scope of works.

Generally speaking, a full Melbourne dental fitout of a space that is 300sqm or less will take around a month once permits are issued. A larger clinic, requiring a full fit out may take six to eight weeks.

Simpler fitouts that just require the installation of partitions cabinetry and workstations may be able to completed in a week or two.

If you are planning a dental clinic fitout and would like to know how long it is likely to take contact us– we’ll be more than happy to give you a reliable guide.

 

Can we operate on the premises while our dental clinic fitout is being done?

Yes. Many of our previous dental clinic fitouts and refurbishments have been completed while the client continues to operate from the premises. But ultimately, it does depend on the scope of your fit out work, your timeframe and your needs.

As a general rule, we will be able to complete your dental fitout much faster if the space is empty. However, we also understand that for many businesses this isn’t an option. So we work with you to plan the best process.

If you do need to operate from the premises during your dental clinic fitout, then we will undertake your fit out in different stages to minimise disruption. We are also able to undertake work overnight and on weekends if required to minimise disruption to your operations.

 

I’m looking to lease a space for my dental clinic – should I get Office Boy involved?

Yes. Getting us involved in the selection process can be very worthwhile. We often help our clients assess the feasibility of a space before they commit to a lease. Through a site inspection we can help you to understand what is possible within the space and provide you with an indicative office fit out estimate.

If you are looking to lease a space, contact us to arrange a time for us to do a site inspection and provide you with a dental fitout estimate.

 

Does Office Boy take care of all elements of the dental clinic fit out process?

Yes. This is one of the things our dental fitout clients value most.

Through careful planning they manage all building works including demolition, framing, plastering, electrical and data, plumbing, installation of partitions, flooring, cabinetry, dental equipment and every other element that goes in to a dental fit out project.

 

Will you deal directly with my building Facility Manager?

Yes. As part of our dental clinic fitout project management, we will liaise directly with your Building Facility Manager and/or Leasing Agent to ensure your clinic design and the Project Plan meets their building requirements and needs.

2. Design, planning and permits for your dental clinic fitout
What design services do you provide as part of my dental clinic fit out project?

As part of the design and planning stage, our design team works closely with you to truly understand your needs – from the number of consulting rooms you need, dental equipment that needs to be sourced and installed, to how you work, your workflows, storage needs and your plans for the future.

We then explore the possibilities that your space offers to create a design that is functional and practical. To help you visualise the final result, we showcase the design concepts using 3D renders, floor plans and mood boards, so that you can get a good feel for what your dental clinic fit out or refurbishment will be like.

 

How long does the design stage of an dental fit out usually take?

The length of the design and planning stage of your dental clinic fit out will depend on a variety of different factors including the size, scope of work, complexities involved and also any revisions that you require.

Generally speaking, we are usually able to get you through an initial design concept within a week of our initial design consultation.  If you are planning a dental fitout and would like to know more about what is involved contact us– we’ll be more than happy to answer your questions.

 

I already have building plans for my dental clinic fitout – can you just do the build and not the design?

Yes. Office Boy is more than happy to work from your existing building plans and can work directly with your Architect to ensure your fit out meets their specifications.

We also have Architects on our team, so can also work with you to design your fitout and create building plans and then move on to the drafting detailed building plans for permit submissions and onsite working drawings.

 

Will I need a building permit for my dental clinic fit out?

Whether or not you require a building permit for your dental fitout will depend on the scope of work you are wanting to undertake. A basic refresh and update, may not require any permits. However, more complex building works, changes to the façade, signage, or building itself are likely to require a building permit for your dental clinic fit out.

As part of our design and planning work, we will ensure that all necessary building permits are secured. Our extensive experience undertaking health and dental fitouts of all shapes and sizes, means that we have strong relationships in place with Building Surveyors, who issue the building permits and carry out the inspections that may be required for the permit.

 

How long does it take to secure the relevant building permits for my dental clinic fitout?

Generally speaking, a Building Permit will be issued within a weak of lodgments. Planning Permits on the other hand can take longer as they must be lodged directly with the Council Planning Department. However, we do everything we can to minimise the time it takes and ensure applications are made early on in the process to avoid delays.

 

Can you organise our Building Permit for us? 

Of course. Securing the necessary building permits for your dental fit out is a standard part of our design and planning work.

Our extensive experience undertaking healthcare and dental fitouts of all shapes and sizes, means that we have strong relationships in place with Building Surveyors, who issue the building permits and carry out the inspections that may be required for the permit.

3. Dental fitout costs and financing options
How much does a dental clinic fit out cost?

Generally speaking, most office fit out projects cost somewhere between $400 and $2,000 per sqm.

This is because the cost of a dental clinic fit out depends on a variety of different factors, including existing services (electrical, plumbing, cabling, air conditioning, lifts etc) the degree of building work required, the level of finishes and furnishings you require and whether or not you need new dental equipment installed.

If you would like to discuss your dental clinic design and fit out project, we’d more than happy to help and can provide you with an indicative budget based on your specific needs. Just contact us.

 

Can I finance my dental clinic fit out?

The cost of a dental clinic fitout can be a significant investment. In most cases, we can provide you with options for financing all or some of the cost of your fitout. These options may include extended payment terms or a leasing arrangement over 12 months or more.

Many of our clients find the option of financing their dental fit out appealing because it allows them to:

  • Keep the money invested in the business for longer.
  • Minimise the impact on your cash flow.
  • Avoid the hassle of securing finance from a bank or lender.
  • Get your fitout sooner.
  • Pay for it over time – 8 months or longer.

What if I get a cheaper quote for my dental clinic fitout?

When it comes to dental and healthcare fitouts, comparing ‘apples with apples’ is very important.

First of all it is important to make sure that everything in your brief has been taken into account and that the scope of work is the same or similar. For example, there may be works required to services that haven’t been included in the cheaper quote.

At Office Boy we go out of our way to fully scope the requirements of your dental clinic fit out so that we can provide you with a realistic estimate, up front.
