About

Unthank Design Group

As a dental office planning, architecture, and interior design firm, Unthank Design Group serves as your best advocate throughout the design and construction of your project. We will develop a space-efficient office appropriate for your practice, which projects the image you desire. Our experience indicates that our fee will be more than offset by what you will save in eliminating significant change orders, by not constructing wasted space, and by verifying that you receive competitive pricing for your project. Our goal for your office is to allow you and your team to finish each day with more money in your pockets, less stress in your lives and looking forward to returning to the office the next morning.

We would be honored to be of assistance in the development of your new office, remodeling or interior design makeover!  We regularly hear from successful practices around the country that Unthank Design Group’s involvement with their projects saved far more than their investment in our services!
