We have been providing design services for the past 38 years from our production office located in Patterson Dental/Dentaire Canada headquarters building.

Our Expertise / Our History

The National Planning Team
is a group of professional designers specialized in the planning and design of dental offices, combined medical/dental clinics, and institutional facilities related to the dental field (dental schools, university dental faculties and hospital dental departments).

The NPTeam has been serving the dental industry since 1985, initially for former dental distributor Healthco and since 1993 for Patterson Dental Canada. Over the past 38 years, the team has been actively involved in the development of hundreds of dental offices annually.
The NPTeam Designers were the pioneers of computer-assisted design in the North American dental industry.

Furthermore, in order to improve the clarity and readability of plans, the National Planning Team developed its own graphic standards and improved design software. Their technology has been widely recognized as the best in dental office planning and design and has become the team's trademark.

In 1993, the NPTeam became an independent entity, while the company still maintains a key client relationship with Patterson Dental Canada.

Since their inception, the National Planning Team has provided services to customers in all ten Canadian provinces and territories, 16 U.S. states and more than 14 countries worldwide.

Their impressive portfolio boasts the design of over 28,000,000 square feet of dental office space!
The NPTeam Designers
“At NPTeam, we strongly believe in the principle of "form follows function" when designing dental offices. Therefore, our designs focus on prioritizing the tasks performed within the office. We understand that the ergonomics of the work environment, such as smooth circulation, efficient workstations, and overall productivity, are crucial to creating a modern dental office.

Over the years, our team has handled thousands of planning projects that required creative and unique solutions. Our ultimate aim is to create a functional, profitable, and welcoming environment that promotes the health and safety of practitioners, staff, and patients alike.”

“Don’t blow it –good planets are hard to find.” Time Magazine

There is a whole world outside of the dental field, we all know that. Unfortunately it isn’t perfect; it needs to be improved seriously and quickly before it is too late. We all need to act: individually, collectively, or corporately. This is why we try to do our share to help make the world a better place to live. Look around and take action.

For our brothers and sisters:
Although our means are modest, we are proud to support the following charities in our local community:

-Father Emmett Johns (Pops) “Dans La Rue”. An organization serving youth on the street.
For our brothers and sisters:
-Sun Youth Organization. “Committed to helping the disadvantaged and weak, providing emergency services to the community”

For our Mother Earth:
To help protect our planet, we also support:

-The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC ) “Working for the direct protection of Canada’s biodiversity”.

For our Mother Earth:
-The David Suzuki Foundation
"Our mission is to protect the diversity of nature and our quality of life, now and for the future. Our vision is that within a generation, Canadians act on the understanding that we are all interconnected and interdependent with nature."

We also want to put forth as our environmental policy ways to save on energy and ressources to help protect the environment and try to make this planet a better place for our children and children’s children.
