Abstract

The use of color in the interior has a very important role. Color is a basic element of an interior space design. The use of the right color will be able to motivate or even dampen a human psychological condition. Moreover, if the use of color is applied to a pediatric dental clinic. Dental clinics have always been identified with something that is not fun for most young children. This is due to the perception of pain that will be obtained when the tooth is about to be extracted or when the treatment process is ongoing. FDC Dental Clinic Bandung as a health service provider that specializes in dental health services for children tries to change this negative perception. The concept of "child-friendly" is a reference for FDC Dental Clinic Bandung in minimizing children's reluctance to come and take care of their teeth at the clinic. The implementation of the use of color in the interior is applied to design elements such as walls, armature lamps, furniture and other supporting interior accessories. The research method used is descriptive qualitative method. It is hoped that the findings obtained will be used as input and consideration in planning, designing and developing special health facilities for children in the future..
