Christine Opperman


“Waking up anxious, tired, and dreading the day ahead is normal for people today. We’re haunted by hopelessness, apathy, and feel like we have no purpose. We constantly ask ourselves, “who are we? Why am I here? Why do I exist?” And often, we feel worthless. Even at work, it feels like life has no meaning. We’re left wondering if we even make a difference that counts.

I was there too. I wondered about my role in this world and what difference I make. Once I realised who I really am and my true purpose, everything changed. I felt at peace with my identity. I accepted how I look, my weight, my crooked nose, my bumps and smiles; I became joyful!

My inner-focus shifted and I saw the world with beauty. Suddenly, it was filled with hope and kindness. But with this realisation came a deep yearning to care for and contribute to the world. I knew I wanted to help others create the legacy we all want in life.”

Born and raised in South Africa, Christine entered the field of dentistry when she met her husband, Manie. 35 years of experience dentistry in different roles and capacity Christine become more involved assumed co-Director in 2003  focusing on relational care and development in their practice until 2017.

Using her educational background, she developed the revolutionary Defeat Dental Fear Program. The Defeat Dental Fear Progam helps dental practices reap the profitable benefits of eliminating dental phobia in their patients. Helping patients move past fear to confidence, her program is improving communities through changed lives.

In 2017, Christine graduated from a Strategic Business and Leadership program to assist corporate, health and management organizations optimise their processes for increased success.
