Verdant Dental will be closed between December 24-January 3rd.

What a year it’s been! Thank you, our fellow Victorians, for treating each other with kindness and patience, during the most incredible, demanding and strangest year of our lives.

Our last opening day for 2020 will be Wednesday December 23rd. We have extremely limited capacity for emergency appointments for the remaining days with Dr Tim Wenas and Dr Alison (Aliey) Cheah available. Call us on 9379 3736 for emergencies only.

Dr Helen Marchant will also have her final operating day for Western Special Needs Dentistry on 23/12/2020.

Verdant Dental will reopen on Monday January 4 2021

Our first week back in 2021 will be from Monday January 4th. We will have most days available to look after our wonderful, loyal patients.

  • Dr Tim Wenas, Dr Alpa Lodhiya, and Dr Alison Cheah will be available from January 2021.
  • Dr Christina Romanella will be taking January 2021 off, returning February 2021
  • Mr Jeremy Kearns will take the first half of January off, most likely returning  Wednesday January 20th. We wil update when this is confirmed.

Dr Alison (Aliey) Cheah has joined our professional team!

Dr Alison (Aliey) Cheah is a dentist at Verdant Dental

Aliey commenced sessions at Verdant Dental a few months ago, and we are glad she is now able to offer us more consulting days! Aliey is a wonderfully cheerful and friendly dentist. You’ll have your treatment options fully and easily explained to you, and of course feel free to ask any and all questions you may have! Aliey will be available Mondays and Wednesdays, and hopefully even more in 2021!

We wish everyone a wonderful, safe and happy holidays over Christmas and New Year!


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!
