Technology upgrades at Verdant Dental

I have *some* idea what I’m doing….

Setting up computers… it’s like pulling teeth!

So some people would spend a long Grand Final weekend actually watching footy – I spent it buying computer parts, building servers and testing networks. In a couple of weeks, Verdant Dental will be getting a full tech makeover with in-surgery computers and intraoral cameras, a centralised server, automated SMS reminders and a lot more!

Digital imaging – you can see what dentists see!

I’m really excited about some of the tech we’re introducing! intraoral cameras take up-close photos of dental problems. We will show you cracks, broken fillings, cavities and any other problems we identify! Plus we can save these images to your file – for example, if there’s something that looks unusual, we can record a photo, and compare it 6 or 12 months later.

Dental reports, second opinions, Workcover and TAC claims

Recently we’ve had a Workcover claim come in to see Dr Alpa Lodhiya. The poor bloke broke 2 front teeth at a workplace accident! We’ve organised a complete report covering the incident, including xrays and digital photos, so we can submit a comprehensive claim. This will ensure our patient is fully covered for the immediate and future treatment he’ll need through Workcover.

Dental Appointment reminders through SMS!

Because we all have busy schedules, our new system can remind you of your dental appointment with an automated SMS, and all you have to do is reply Y to confirm!

Dentist Online Appointment bookings

We are not enabling the online dentist appointment booking system just yet. Often it’s better to contact Verdant Dental on (03) 9379 3736, because different problems might be best seen by different dentists (don’t forget, we’re the best dentists in Melbourne!) and appointment length can vary. Looking for a dentist around Essendon, Strathmore, Niddrie, Keilor? Come to Verdant Dental!


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!
