The office of my dream is very big and in an old style where the main colour is pink. The waiting room is round and full of chair so every one can see each others. And next to a big door there i
Are 2 big desk one with the receptionist and one with 2 nurse who has to check problem,condition and everything of each patient.
The braces room is big and with All white and light pink colour and same colour are the chairs, 70' style keep in line and in front one but one.
For each chair there are 2 assistents with red uniform and all are near 40 years old and with a perfect smile.

Mine would be a small room in a highrise building with a view over the city equipped a leather chair and a viynal top layer and a confortable headrest, maybe some restraints on the wrists as well lol. There would be the Orthodontist and the assistant which would be two girls in their 30's to early 40's and myself. Cheek retractors are always used along with a tongue rest with the suction tubes. A jaw opener can be used for the right occasion. The two girls working on me would wear PVC nurse/dental outfits with forearm lengthed latex gloves and masks. They would work with old style treatment methods such as noticeable, bulky and pure metal appliances with fixed headgear lol. I guess it's my fantasy Orthodontic Clinic

Interesting question, and I'm not sure why I didn't notice it before.

I picture a large floor-area, single-storey building somewhere on the outskirts of a shopping centre. You walk in the front door and reach the large reception area, with check-in desk directly towards you. After checking in, only patients are allowed much further once they have their braces on; parents, boy/girlfriends or anybody else is directed towards a few chairs on the left (receptionist's right), although most leave.

The waiting area itself (your right, reception desk left) is not very exciting - think hospital. Whitewashed walls and rows of long, low chairs. The door to the treatment room(s) is in the centre of that wall, with a TV screen either side showing what is happening in the treatment rooms, provided the patients agree. Each treatment room has two chairs, of a pretty standard, unwelcoming sort.

X-Rays rooms, offices, record storage and the like would run along the back of the building, but on the other side of the reception desk there would be an area for "new braces training", photographs and the like, as well as a barber's chair for headgear suitable haircuts. There would always be a trained barber or stylist as appropriate on hand. As an alternative, the building next door would be a hairdressers and patients could be sent out for cuts, which would be billed between ortho and hairdressers/barbers. As a result of the set-up, all new patients would need to walk the entire length of the waiting room for photographs and training, to get away from the stigma of new braces, and to make it obvious that young or old, male or female, everybody gets treated the same.

As for those treatments, nothing too new and fancy, but open to change. Perhaps ceramic brackets and the like could carry a hefty surcharge, meaning metal was almost always favoured? There would also be a special clinic for non-compliant patients.

I am sorry for bringing back an old topic but I thought this was interesting.

I'd imagine a cramped windowless office with outdated decor, only one or two chairs per room.

The office specializes in adult patients, and have an all-female staff.

The orthodontist is a middle-aged woman with perfect teeth and a slight sadistic streak, while the assisstants and hygienists are younger and friendlier. All employees except the doctor wear some kind of orthodontia, with newer employees having more extreme appliances.

For more fantastical elements, the chairs would have restraints around the forehead, waist, wrists, and legs. Nearly all patients receive headgear, and non-compliance is punished with additional treatment.

I picture a large bright waiting room with benches, tables, chairs, and some toys to entertain little kids. The workspace itself is made in the shape of a large circle. This means that everyone and their appliances are exposed to the world. I imagine this would be particularly embarrassing for the older people. The assistants are all woman around 25 years old. They all wear big metal braces to fix their teeth since an orthodontists office can’t really employ someone who doesn’t have a perfect smile. The doctor is around 50 years old and seems kind. However she intentionally deceives patients. She makes them think they are getting clear braces but everyone ends up with HUGE brackets and bands. Almost everyone has a couple of appliances and there is no such thing as elastics in this woman’s office. Everyone with a moderately bad bite gets a herbst or forsus appliance and those with more sever bites get headgear.

Another concept from me.

Very small office, professional-looking but built out of the orthodontist's garage or basement. Probably only room for a single patient at a time.

Orthodontist is a butch woman in her late 40's with a big smile and perfect teeth. Very friendly with a sharp sense of humor.

Her only assistant is her wife, same age, dresses more feminine. Wears some form of bulky metal headgear. It may be wired in, yet she still attempts to wear a surgical mask around it while working. Quiet but cheery, and seems to be just as passionate and knowledgeable about orthodontics as the doctor. Speaks with a heavy lisp.

While they accept all patients, they prefer adult females, and most women in their town have received some form of treatment from them.

The orthodontist is notable for almost always using appliances of her own invention, which are always bulky and outdated-looking, though they are very effective.

However, despite their friendly reputation, they are also known to subject less compliant patients to more "experimental" treatments, which often necessitate restraints on the chair. Despite the nature of this, they do not break their gentle demeanors, and patients consent to this condition when beginning treatment.

Thank you for your input. I may try to consider what kind of story I could write about them.

Though if anyone else wanted to use these characters I would not mind at all.

I would like a small office in a standalone perhaps converted house.  It has a simple, tidy, and small waiting area with a board listing the patients coming in and the milestones they are reaching.  It would have private consultation rooms with seating for the patients' significant other, perhaps it caters to married adults.  This would allow me to hold the hand and see the concern and emotion on the face of my spouse as the treatment progresses.

Great thought provoking question with some exciting answers already.

The small dentist and orthodontics office is located on a side street with a good amount of foot traffic. The white plastic chairs in the waiting room match the clean decor. There's a cute 20 something assistant working the front desk who is sporting braces herself (probably perk of the job).

The dentist is a slightly overweight woman in her late 40s. She does not seem to care much about other people's opinions or having them wait. She had a strong dislike for children and therefore ran a adult only practice.

As a regular dentist she would suggest for a lot of people to consider a consultation. Most people would agree to "do it some day" at which point she would surprise her unknowing victim with her lame routine joke "well, good thing I'm an orthodontist and I got an extra couple of minutes" before placing both a bite block between the back teeth and a lip spreader on top of that.

The massive windows had blinds which only seem to be closed after hours. The sensation in your stomach as you lay down in the chair as people could easily look inside.

Finally, she would always send her patients out into the reception area wearing their headgear. Even if it was overnight only, she would always send them out to "get used to it".

Overall she had a dismissive demeanour and would terrify the hell out of me. I also wouldn't be able to wait for my next appointment...

Great question! I’d love a modern-looking building surrounded by lots of professional offices - dentists and doctors in private practice, a small company office, etc. The orthodontist’s office would have large, outward-facing windows on the ground floor and would be at the far end of the hall. This would give a mix of privacy in having a long walk with new braces or appliances before going outside but also a sense of fear, knowing that any door could open at any time.

The office itself would have a small waiting room and relatively little space for patients to spread out. The orthodontist would be new in town and wouldn’t have a tech, so he’d do all the work of prepping teeth and placing brackets, appliances, and ligatures himself.

One day a co-worker of mine and I walked to a nearby newly opened massage office.  The receptionist explained that on Thursdays they had a registered massage therapist in.  The other days the employees who worked there performed massages that were not meant to be therapeutic.  They showed how they had little bar fridges in each room to hold the wine if you sent it ahead.  They quoted two different prices.  One was for if if the employee massaged the client, whereas the higher one was for the client massaging the employee.

The above is not my dream office and if a story used the translated idea below, then it wouldn't by my idea, would it.  Feel free to write it if you want.

The receptionist shows us through behind the reception area.  It was a dimly lit hall with doors off each side.  She opened one that was not in use to reveal a windowless room with an examination chair as well as a stool and a counter with drawers.  She showed us all the supplies.  They had every imaginable appliance or appliance part as well as the full assortment of orthodontic tools.  There was a fridge as part of the counter and drawer unit beside the examination chair.  She opened it to reveal a fully stocked fridge with lots of liquor miniatures as well as wines and beers plus mix and ice.  There was even a vaping kit.  She explained that you could get braces or any other appliance installed in your mouth, just like it was real, except with no treatment plan.  They had a selection of contracts that would indemnify the ortho parlor or, if a friend was selecting the appliances to install, that gave permission from the 'patient' for them to do that.  There was a hefty surcharge if you wanted to install the appliances on the person who tended to you and they would be removed as soon as after your session at the ortho parlor.  In fact the receptionist had brackets on her canines, an arch wire and presumably bands on the molars because she wore a herbst as well, which evidently she had not had a chance to have removed yet.  Appliance removal, however, was included in the price, as it was assumed that at some point after getting them installed, you returned to get them off.

That sounds like a great idea for a longer story.  Removable appliances are fairly easy to access and mess around with.  But getting non-function fixed ones, now that sounds like an experience!

The treatment room should be really open with lots of seats right next to each other so there is no sense of privacy. Patients are walking around and overhearing your conversation with your orthodontist. When you get a new embarrassing appliance fitted there is no hiding it. When you are done with your appointment and leave the room you pass the other patients, staring at them while they are lying there with their teeth exposed. Or you could be the one getting stared at.

Well, I've managed to write a story around the idea.  I'm posting it in the stories section of the forum under the 'Scenes in an Exhibition' thread (https://www.bracesforum.net/braces-stories-braces-special-(english)/scenes-in-an-exhibition-of-the-decoration-of-the-mouth/) as story 49 in that thread.

A large and open waiting room would be essential.  And lots of time to be spent there before or during appointments to make sure that your braces and other appliances are on full display along with the other patient's!  An open treatment area would be ideal as well.  A long, narrow room with several chairs (maybe 8-10) where you can see and hear what is happening with each patient.

With the new headgear patients always put right at the furthest end from the door ;)

For each chair there are 2 assistents with red uniform and all are near 40 years old and with a perfect smile.
the red uniforms remind me of the movie "dead ringers", does someone know when the now traditional blue ones were introduced?

I'd say a more open layout where you can view what procedures patients are undergoing. Of course there would be some private rooms for some individuals but generally more open.

There would be a bunch of display models of different appliances/braces around and couches to sit in.

Other than that, I don't really know what else.
