Open for treatment Monday Aug 30, Tuesday August 31 and Thursday Sept 2 during Victoria Lockdown #6

Our dental clinic is open for treatment during Victoria Lockdown.

Dr Tim Wenas will be in attendance at Verdant Dental on Monday August 30 and Tuesday August 31.

Dr Alpa Lodhya will be operating on Thursday September 2.

Dr Christina Romanella and Mr Jeremy Kearns (denture clinic) are temporarily unavailable.

We are hoping for normal operations to resume from Friday September 3rd. However, it is unlikely lockdown restrictions will lift then. We will be contacting patients scheduled for routine, non-urgent work to arrange later appointments.

Dental restrictions are changing throughout Lockdown #6 in Victoria

The longer lockdowns persist, the more people suffer. Small dental problems progress to becoming large problems.

The Australian Dental Association has recognised this, and has been allowing us to perform more dental treatments as lockdowns extend.

Initially, we could only treat severe and urgent emergencies. These include facial swelling, trauma, unrelenting pains and other extreme situations.

However, we are now permitted to perform dental treatments necessary to avoid further worsening of your conditions.

For example, a cavity or broken tooth that could result in your tooth nerve dying, or extraction if we didn’t do something to fix it.

For an assessment of your problem, please SMS your name and a description of your issue to 0434 881 479, or call 9379 3736.


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!
