With more than 20 years at Fraser Dental, Jude is one of our most experienced Dental Assistants. She has watched many nervous new arrivals become regular, valued patients. She loves being a member of the fun and hard-working Fraser Dental team. She takes real pride in welcoming patients, listening to their needs, and helping them through their dental treatments with care and compassion. Her genuineness never fails to put people at ease. “After all these years of being a Dental Assistant, I can honestly say that I still love my job!”

Jude is a real ‘people-person’ who builds great relationships with patients and their families, even becoming good friends with many of them. In fact, she has had the pleasure of watching the children of many of her patients grow into amazing young adults.

Jude has been married to Mike for an impressive 33 years. They both enjoy renovating and have been working on their house for “six big years” now. She is immensely proud of her two children, and there’s the gorgeous Persian family cat Garfield too. Socialising with good friends is one of her favourite things to do, especially with the odd glass of wine.

Jude says she has just recently discovered snow on a trip to Taupo and Mount Ruapehu. She absolutely loved it and definitely plans to go back.
