Children’s Dentistry Renovated


Kid Zone

Duxbury, MA – Duxbury Children’s Dentistry, located at 95 Tremont Street in Duxbury, has opened its doors after undergoing a renovation and expansion to incorporate orthodontics. Joy John, D.M.D. of Duxbury Children’s Dentistry, and Paul Fitzgerald, D.M.D. of Duxbury Orthodontics, wanted to increase the number of chairs and expand the space while creating a whimsical environment for patients.

“The design of our new office expansion was inspired by the desire to bring the feeling of our gorgeous coastal community indoors” says Dr. John. “Phase Zero Design and Brian McWilliams, millwork designer and fabricator, took all of our ideas and made them a reality by blending an existing smaller pediatric dental office with an amazing new space!”

“A big thanks to Melchionda Construction Co. Inc. for managing the project,” she added.

The expansion increased square footage from 1,700sf to 3,448sf, and the new space has been divided into four distinctive zones that each serve a unique function.

The Parent Zone is a mature and comfortable environment with sight lines to the Kid Zone.

The Kid Zone features custom millwork to mimic a surf shack, atop which sit multiple iPad stations for waiting patients and family members.

The Business Zone provides dual circulation for staff, utilizing 3-Form privacy panels that allow staff acoustic and visual separation from waiting patients.

Finally, the Treatment Zone serves a dual function for orthodontics and general dentistry.  3-Form privacy panels maximize productivity while maintaining functionality.
