IMG_3955Dr Celeste Fraser

Celeste grew up in a small rural town in South Africa, where the closest dental service was almost an hour’s drive away. Her earliest memories of dentistry were of a caring dentist that always tried to create a pain free, relaxed atmosphere.When she started her dental degree at Stellenbosch University, her future vision was to go back to her hometown, open a practice and “give back to the community” she grew up in. 

Unfortunately circumstances in South Africa did not allow for this to happen.In 2004 her family immigrated to New Zealand.  They spent 8 wonderful years as Kiwi’s, but after a short visit to Queensland in 2012 they fell in love with Australia.  They have called Hervey Bay their home since then and it finally feels like her earlier student dream has become a reality.Celeste’s Dental philosophy is to create a friendly, family atmosphere.  One where patients feel confident in their treatment, as their input and needs are taken into consideration.

As a Queenslander, she enjoys the outdoors with her husband and two boys.  She enjoys running and has a passion for her local church.
