Meet The Team

dentist nedlandsDr Fraser Ferguson
Principal Dentist

Fraser has been working as a dentist both in Australia and internationally for 24 years. Leaving Cheshire, England in 2007, he moved to Perth with his wife and two children, and took over as Principal Dentist at Nedlands Dental in 2014.

Professionally, his driving passions are for preventative dentistry, educating patients in how best to take care of their teeth so that they can avoid any concerns in the future, and addressing any problems patients have with their teeth in a friendly and gentle manner.

I am a great believer in explaining things to patients. Whether they have been with us for years or this is their first visit to our practice, giving step-by-step information about what to expect goes a long way to helping patients feel relaxed and confident in their care. There are so many factors that impact on dental health, from what you eat and how well you clean, to external factors such as stress and overall physical health. My job is to treat and educate our patients so that they can feel confident about their oral health.

Outside of the practice Fraser most enjoys spending time with his family and exploring the wonderful country he has come to call home. He can also be found on the golf course striving to reduce his handicap.

 

 

dentist nedlandsLoh
Hygienist 

Loh joined the team at Nedlands Dental at the beginning of 2016 and has already made a name for herself amongst the patients.  She works directly with patients and alongside the dentist.  Like everyone on the Nedlands Dental team, Loh has a strong focus on preventative management.

Throughout her career Loh has been eagerly sought out by patients who appreciate the time she takes to get to know them and understand what makes them tick.

The job of a dental hygienist is about so much more than just cleaning people’s teeth.  Your mouth reflects a lot about your overall health and other things that are going on in your life.  Taking the time to get to know my patients means I can give them service and advice that is tailored very closely with their particular needs.

When she is not caring for patients at work Loh likes to spend her time creatively.  She has become known amongst her family and friends for the beautiful 3D sculpted cakes she creates for holidays and celebrations and has found unique sculpting tools to help her achieve the exact look she is aiming for.

 

dentist nedlandsLiz 

Front Office Coordinator / Receptionist

Liz has been the welcoming face of reception at Nedlands Dental for more than 5 years. Growing up in Sale Victoria, Liz moved to Perth in 2008 after attending a conference in the city and falling in love with it.

A natural people person, Liz goes out of her way to make patients feel welcome and comfortable, listening to their concerns, setting their appointments and helping them to understand what to expect during their treatment.

Taking the time to make a real connection with our patients is very important to their overall experience. In understanding who they are we are better able to serve them and give them the best care we can provide. I have worked in dentistry for more than 12 years and it is the most wonderful feeling to be part of the team that helps a patient move from an insecure smile, to a wide, confident grin.  

Outside of work Liz enjoys reading and spending time with her husband and two step-children.

 

dentist nedlandsAmy
Dental Assistant

Amy has been working in dentistry for close to a decade, joining the Nedlands Dental team at the end of 2015.  Throughout her career she has been known by her patients as someone who takes the time to get to know them and always has their best interests and comfort at heart.

Her calming nature and reassuring approach made her ideally suited to working alongside the caring team at Nedlands Dental where the focus is very much on prevention and ongoing care.

I love seeing a patient come in to the practice and walk out with a smile on their face.  In dentistry you can make a difference to someone’s life in just one day.  For me this is one of the things I love most about working as a dental assistant.  A lot of the worries people have about going to the dentist come from what they remember as a child.  Equipment was bigger and louder then and people seemed more in a rush.  It is not like that at all here.  At Nedlands Dental we very much focus on making every patient comfortable right from the moment they walk through the door.

When she is not at work Amy likes to spend time with her large extended family, singing karaoke at one another’s houses and relaxing with her loved ones.
