For Dr. Nathaniel Wong of Floss Dentistry, building his first new dental clinic was the realization of a dream. As he strived to match patient experience with high design, FENIX NTM® was an integral component of the build.
This project also won a 2020 Interior Designers of Alberta MASI award!

“Many satin and matte textures still have too much sheen for what we were trying to achieve,” Dashney said. “In addition, the anti-fingerprint feature for the FENIX NTM®helped ensure that after dozens of touchpoints per day, the material would still look great helping to reduce cleaning.”
At the heart of the clinic from a technology standpoint is the CEREC® milling machine to create custom crowns on site. Dr. Wong felt that this technology-forward piece of equipment had to be front and center for the patients to see. Dashney designed a stunning illuminated display cabinet offset by the matte Nero Ingo FENIX NTM® materials to literally and figuratively shine a light on this latest technological advancement.
“Selecting the correct material for a project is task balanced by function, design, availability, and value. Value is not determined necessarily by cost, but by the deliverables it helps achieve,” Dashney said. “And in the case of Floss Dentistry, the value was the FENIX NTM® materials to minimize fingerprints and abrasions, and also by the beautiful color, texture and sheen that helped unify and showcase the design. The material is both functional and beautiful and became the central focal point of the project to help define function and form in a symbiotic way.”
