DR ADRIAN FRICK

Dentist - BDSc, FICD

Adrian graduated in 1993 and immediately sought adventure in the Gulf of Carpentaria and the Torres Strait. During those 8 years, Adrian discovered a passion for primary health care and dentistry, and the fishing was great as well. A period in middle management at Queensland Health, interspaced with a 12-month position in private practice in Alice Springs ultimately lead to Adrian and Michelle purchasing Dr Harry Akers private practice, what was already a well-established business servicing Bundaberg. Adrian and Michelle have always focussed on providing a dental service that is both high-quality and accessible and enjoy the challenges of combining small business with primary health care.
