Nothing like clean teeth to start off your morning!

Dentists who speak Italian, Greek and Gujarati (Hindi)!

So the other night we went to see The Cure at Rod Laver – an amazing show with excellent production – and now it’s past 1am the following day, I’m a little sick, but still can’t sleep! So I thought I might talk about the amazing dentists at Verdant Dental – of course, we’re all native English speakers, but some of us have extra talents that might help you out!

Dr Christina Romanella: Italian and Greek

Dr Christina Romanella has been with Versace Dental/Verdant Dental since 2000, and has developed her own loyal patient base that appreciates her calm, thorough and precise touch. But did you know Christina is fluent in Italian – and Greek?

Dr Alpa Lodhiya: Gujarati (Hindi)

Dr Alpa Lodhiya (Kapadia) has only just commenced with Verdant Dental – and though I’ve known her since 1996 when we were both University of Melbourne students, I’ve been impressed by the amazing way she makes all her younger patients feel at ease, and also by her oral surgery skills! Alpa also speaks Gujarati (Hindi).

Dr Sonia Sumer: Italian

Dr Sonia Sumer (Legudi) has not yet commenced her days at Verdant Dental as she is currently teaching dental radiology (xray technique and interpretation) to University of Melbourne dental students. We hope Sonia will be joining us at the end of August 2016. With her parents hailing from Sicily, Sonia is fluent in Italian.

So if you’re more comfortable with Italian, Greek or Gujarati (Hindi), please call us on (03) 9379 3736 to make an appointment with Christina, Alpa or Sonia!


Tim is the owner of Verdant Dental - but he'd rather spend all day playing with dogs and his Playstation. Except there's this "day job" thing where he actually enjoys talking and relating to his patients at Verdant Dental - creating healthier, happier smiles with a wonderful team to make the days fly by!
