This place is designed to put you at ease, says architect Arati Magdum

NOT MANY ENJOY a visit to a dentist. But this place in HSR Layout is one of a kind, where you feel like coming back for a unique experience. The doctors here believe a visit to the dentist should leave you feeling good rather than 'dreading the drill'.
This place is the brainchild of Dr Akshai Shetty and Dr Ashish Shetty. A large, white villa with a mixed facade of baroque, colonial and tinge of art nouveau welcomes patients. Once inside, you are engulfed in soft Zen music with water sounds and the smell of scented candles.
Various artifacts from all over the world draw attention and a few family heirlooms such as an original R K Laxman painting and other antiques bring subtle focus into well-tailored lounge areas.


Dr Akshai Shetty and Dr Ashish Shetty who personalised their workspace with wi-fi access in the lounge terrace and made it comfortable for children too by giving them i-pods to listen to music, discuss their design ideas

What was the idea behind this clinic?

We wanted to change the definition of a dentist's clinic. We didn't like the idea that people, especially children, come to us with dread and fear. Instead, we wanted a complete mindbody-soul experience that will relax a person and make him comfortable.
There is no trace of the typical eugenol smell and nothing around reminds you that you are in a clinic.

The architectural style is a mix of baroque and art nouveau. Why the Zen theme?

We decided on a Zen theme for the music, as it touches the soul and puts the mind at ease. We were very clear about the look we wanted. So, right from the Victorian chairs to the grill design, or the stone carving on the facade, we picked the best of all to conglomerate into a whole.
