After more than 30 years, Dr Victor Kiven is taking a step back from clinical work and from Melbourne Periodontal Group. 

The announcement of his retirement put a great responsibility on our shoulders.  Dr Kiven found it hard to thank one person or group. Instead, he preferred to thank the whole community for supporting his business. 

Victor is still active in giving lectures and teaching to the post-grad students at Melbourne University. He is also a consultant at Melbourne Periodontal Group where he is in constant communication with all members.

Dr Kiven is confident that Dr Rodriguez and his team would carry on the commitment to quality and professional customer service.
