Everyone’s had to put off getting dental work done during COVID lockdowns, so KND Denture Clinic has now geared up to meet the rush of people who want to get their new dentures built or existing ones repaired.

Prosthetist Sam Robertson, who runs the clinic with sister and brother Kathy and Nick Danoucaras, along with Aleksy Rozyski, says they’re ready and waiting, with all COVID-safe practises in place.

“The nature of our business has always demanded extra attention to hygiene, but now we’re strictly enforcing all the COVID rules, with additional guidelines from Australian Dental Prosthetists Association also followed – just be super-cautious,” Sam explains.

“Our appointments are being spaced out in order to meet the guidelines, and the social distancing rule is applied in our waiting room – where patients will be required to wear a mask.

“The health and safety of our patients and staff is uppermost, so people can feel very confident to visit.”

The clinic, which has been in St Albans for the past 25 years (with a second clinic subsequently opened in Caroline Springs) has a lovely homey feel. Once a private home, it exudes a relaxed, comfortable environment that helps dispel any anxiety – and the talented team of prosthetists go out of their way to make it a positive experience.

Dentures and partial dentures are made on site, with great effort taken to match the patient’s individual profile to produce outstandingly natural results.

The first step is an initial consultation.

“At this time, we assess what type of denture would work best,” Sam says. “There are several stages and visits involved in making dentures.

“We make sure both natural dentition and prosthetic teeth are colour-matched as closely as possible. Once dentures are inserted, any adjustments are done at no extra charge to the patient.”

Now an Australian Made and Owned approved licensee, the clinic accepts all government vouchers and forms, connects with private health insurance carriers and offers Hi-Caps facilities.
