Life Smiles

The traditional, rustic charms of New England are evident throughout the offices of Life Smiles in Plymouth, Minnesota.

The design is intentionally warm and cozy, utilizing residential furnishings, a color palette of warm whites and yellows and whitewashed woodwork to reflect the dentist’s feminine point-of-view.

Large windows bathe both the waiting room and treatment areas in warm, natural light, adding to the desired relaxed atmosphere while allowing calming outdoor views for patients and visitors.
