Meet the Presenters

In 2002, Dr. Jeff and Pat Carter founded the Practice Design Group as a collaborative and innovative design resource for dentists. The Carters focus on helping dentists achieve highly functional and technologically advanced facilities that are unique to each practitioner’s vision and sensitive to the patient experience. To date, Practice Design Group clients have won 16 national design awards.

Jeff Carter, DDS

Dr. Jeff Carter graduated from the University of Colorado School of Dentistry and practiced for 17 years. As a practicing dentist, Dr. Carter personally experienced the stress of working in poorly designed dental facilities. He transitioned to full-time dental office design over 20 years ago and is driven by the same desire today to help other dentists realize the benefits of a well-designed facility.

Pat Carter, IIDA

Pat Carter graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Interior Architecture. She was formerly vice president of T.H.E. Design, Inc., a dental specialty design company. For more than 40 years, Pat has focused exclusively on the unique design challenges of the practicing dentist.



"We welcome any and all project visions, no matter how expansive or seemingly modest." —Dr. Jeff Carter

Customer Testimonials

“ImpactDesign was really eye-opening. They helped me understand the type of investment I would need to realize my vision, and they also told me the steps I would need to follow as I built the new office.”


Dr. Thomas Volck, Thomas C. Volck, D.D.S., General and Cosmetic Dentistry



“When we attended ImpactDesign, we realized that some of our fears could be put to rest—that building a new office and having our own space and having new equipment, and all of the state-of-the-art equipment, was a possibility.”
