A fixed facility can be either: fixed clinic facility

  1. A new structure that is:
    1. modular
    2. conventional construction
  2. An addition to an existing structure
  3. The renovation of an existing structure

It usually is the preferred type of facility by patients and dental providers in terms of comfort and efficiency. A fixed facility enables the complete range of dental services to be delivered, and provides space for record storage and business office functions, but is the most costly to construct. In rural areas patients must travel long distances if the service population is dispersed over a wide geographic area.
