Brotherhood of Sterkenburgers

Esther Schwenning - Niagara-on-the-Lake - Sept. 2023

Michael Vout DD, VP of North America for the International Federation of Denturists had the pleasure to ordain a new member of the Brotherhood of Sterkenburgers on the 16th September at the DAOs 50th Anniversary Celebrations in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

We recognize the dedicated contribution of one of our own!
Michael Vout, fellow member of the Brotherhood of Sterkenburgers, called upon all those present to witness the induction of a respected colleague into the Brotherhood of Sterkenburgers in recognition of our respect for their contributions to this profession. The privilege to receive this prestige is earned by very few! With only 8 Canadian Denturists being among those inducted into the Brotherhood of Sterkenburgers.

IFD is proud to announce that the 2022 inductee into the Brotherhood of Sterkenburgers is Esther Schwenning, DD from British Columbia Canada.

Thank you, Esther, for your excellent contribution to the profession and the education of Denturists Worldwide. You have earned our gratitude and respect. The International Federation of Denturists recognizes you, Esther Schwenning, and we honour you as the first female Canadian Denturist to be inducted into the Brotherhood of Sterkenburgers!
