Dentist reopens in new premises
MORE businesses in the Ipswich CBD are trading again after last week's disastrous floods, with the Limestone Dental Group the latest to reopen.
Dr Ian Lupton said the dental surgery was forced to reopen next to its old premises at 44 Limestone Street after it was damaged by the floods. It opened again on Thursday, with Mayor Paul Pisasale the first patient at the new site.
Dr Lupton said staff at the surgery were able to take patient records and all moveable equipment from their old premises, but some items like their dental chairs had to be left behind.
“It was unbelievable watching it all unfold,” Dr Lupton said.
“We were able to set up at the Ipswich Professional Centre, so we're working just around the corner for now.
“So far people have been really supportive and understanding. I think the challenge is letting people know we are here and open for business.”
