When choosing a design project, special attention is paid to lighting. It is important not just to make the office light. The doctor must clearly see everything that is located in the operating area, where the patient enters and the space around him. At the same time, well-chosen color solutions of the doctor’s office design can reduce eye strain during work.
According to European standards, there are three zones in the dentist’s office, for each of which certain lighting requirements are provided:
1) E1 – the general area of the office, the illumination rate for which is at least 500 lux;
2) E2 – the preparatory zone where the doctor’s instruments are located, here the illumination must be at least 1000 lux;
3) E3 – operating area 20x30cm with illumination from 1600 to 2400 lux.
In addition, it is important to consider the color temperature and light reflectance from the ceiling and walls of the office.
