Cary Family Dental is a thriving dental practice in a suburb of Raleigh, NC.

They enlisted the interior design, environmental branding and exterior signage design services of Provost Studio for their newest location across 2 floors of a fully renovated 10,000sf existing building.

Provost Studio created an inviting, soothing waiting area to support best practices in patient-centered care. A 10-foot oak tree envelopes the space, bringing the outside in while mirroring the primary brand element of Cary Family Dental. An expanded color palette of warm grays, blues and greens and natural stone and wood elements compliment this environment.

As patients enter the treatment area, the iconography of the oak tree is reimagined in a custom, large-scale leaf pattern, with graphic room numbers providing ways of finding and clearly identifying the entrance to each treatment room.

Provost Studio completed renovations on Cary Family Dental’s new 10,000sf office. The office includes a comfortable waiting room, 16 patient rooms, staff offices, and staff lounge.

Dr. Allen Acton, the owner, felt Provost Studio would be a great fit for the project due to their ability to design a branded environment that would accommodate their growing practice in both design and functionality.

Provost Studio embraced Cary Family Dental’s brand mark, an oak tree, by integrating the brand mark into the waiting room. The resulting concept provides patients with the soothing experience of relaxing under an oak tree canopy deep within the forest.

An employee of Cary Family Dental noted: “It’s amazing what can be accomplished by a dedicated and focused team of hard-working people. Thank you to everyone, Provost Studio, for helping to accomplish this goal to allow us to provide exceptional care every week at both locations.” Earlier this year, Provost Studio won a PICA Award for their work on the project.

Thanks to our incredible client and dedicated construction partners Maurer Architecture and Riley Construction.
