About Us

Meet our Periodontists

We have two periodontists in our group, Dr Mouritz and Dr Bazrafshan, both of whom are highly trained and experienced in periodontics and implants. We will listen to your concerns, diagnose and advise you of the best procedures, providing you with a comprehensive plan outlining treatment requirements, timeframe, cost and ongoing maintenance and support.

We use only the best practices and equipment to deliver state of the art therapies. Professional development and collaborative work ethics ensure you receive the latest technology and techniques, alongside individual care and customised treatment.

We are strongly supported by our team of dental nurses, receptionists and oral hygienist. We have available a visiting Collins Street Prosthodontist, Dr Kunal Pandya, should there be a need for additional prosthodontic services. For further information visit www.prosassociates.com.au

We strive to build long-term relationships with our clients so that your oral health is managed and maintained along with the rest of your health. Your satisfaction and trust is vital so we aim to put a smile on your face every time you leave our clinic.

Dr Janice Mouritz graduated as a dentist nearly 40 years ago.  She practised general dentistry, pre-school dentistry, undergraduate teaching and dental research prior to specialising in periodontics. Graduating with a Master of Dental Science in 1993 she set up a private periodontal practice firstly in Carlton North and then Ivanhoe.  At Ivanhoe Perio Janice’s philosophy is to provide high quality periodontal care and implant placement tailored to the individual needs and circumstances of her patients.

Janice has a special interest in the role of occlusion in periodontitis since the way that our teeth meet together influences the support for our teeth, determining appropriate treatments and interventions.

Continuing professional development is ensured through regular participation at periodontal and implant meetings.

Outside of dentistry Janice has four grownup children.  Her hobbies include classical music, art, gardening, cooking and travel.

Dr. Nima Bazrafshan received his D.D.S degree in 2002. During his 6 years working as a dentist, Nima explored different fields of dentistry and found periodontics a challenging and an attractive area. He received an offer for the prestigious periodontics specialist training program at the University of Melbourne in 2008 and successfully completed the D.C.D course in 2011.

Since then he has been working in private practice and also maintaining his teaching role as a clinical tutor for undergraduate dental and hygiene students at the University of Melbourne and the University of Latrobe.

Dr. Bazrafshan offers referral based periodontal treatments which include: non-surgical treatments, surgical treatments, periodontal plastic surgeries, guided tissue and bone regeneration, ortho-perio treatments (un-erupted tooth exposure, frenectomy), perio- restorative treatments (functional and aesthetic crown lengthening) and also all surgical aspects of dental implants.

Outside of dentistry Nima is a keen soccer fan.
