Montana Section Induction Ceremony August 4, 2017

Posted August 29, 2017


THE MONTANA SECTION OF THE PIERRE FAUCHARD ACADEMY HELD AN INDUCTION CEREMONY FOR SEVEN NEW FELLOWS ON AUGUST 4, 2017.  DR. BARRY FEDER, PFA PRESIDENT WAS PRESENT FOR THE CEREMONY AND PERFORMED THE INDUCTIONS.  THE CEREMONY WAS HELD IN CONJUCTION WITH THE ANNUAL “CORPS OF DISCOVERY DENTAL SEMINAR” CONTINUING EDUCATION STUDY CLUB MEETING.  THE CORPS OF DISCOVERY MEETING RAISES SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS FOR YOUNG DENTISTS AND DENTAL STUDENTS AS WELL AS FOR DENTAL FOUNDATION CHARITABLE CAUSES.  SPEAKERS FOR THIS MEETING WERE ALL DISTINGUISHED PFA MEMBERS AND FELLOWS TO INCLUDE DR. CHARLES STEFFEL, ENDODONTIST, INDIANAPOLIS, DR. KEN VERSMAN, PERIODONTIST, DENVER, DR. THOMAS MCDONALD, GENERAL DENTIST, ATHENS, GA., AND DR. STEVEN SMITH, GENERAL DENTIST, BOZEMAN, MT.

SIX OF THE SEVEN NEW PFA INDUCTEES WERE ABLE TO ATTEND THE MEETING AND RECEIVE THEIR PFA MEDALS AND CERTIFICATES FROM DR. FEDER.  DR. ROGER KIESLING, PFA MONTANA SECTION CHAIR, AND DR. SCOTT HOUFEK, PFA WYOMING SECTION CHAIR PARTICIPATED IN THE INDUCTION CEREMONY. 

THE NEW MONTANA PFA FELLOWS REPRESENTED OUTSTANDING NEXT GENERATION PRACTIONERS FROM ACROSS THE STATE OF MONTANA.  THEIR SELECTION AND LEADERSHIP WILL PROVIDE GUIDANCE AND OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTINUED EFFORT WITHIN THE STATE TO BUILD THE ACADEMY THROUGH NEW FELLOW NOMINATIONS OF DESERVING DENTISTS IN MONTANA AND THE NORTHWEST. 

THE RECENT INDUCTIONS REPRESENTED A NEAR DOUBLING OF THE ACTIVE MEMBERSHIP OF PFA WITHIN MONTANA.  THE SUMMER STUDY CLUB MEETING SETTING IN A MAGNIFICENT LODGE ON THE BANKS OF THE MISSOURI RIVER SURROUNDED BY BEAUTIFUL MONTANA SCENERY AND ABUNDANT WILDLIFE WAS A FITTING BACKDROP FOR THE CEREMONY. 

SPECIAL THANKS ARE EXTENDED TO DR. FEDER FOR HIS ATTENDANCE AT THE MEETING WHICH WAS SO MEANINGFUL FOR THE NEW FELLOWS AND OTHER STUDY CLUB ATTENDEES.  ADDITIONAL THANKS ARE EXTENDED TO THE HARD WORK, GUIDANCE AND TIMELY ADMINISTRATIVE EFFORT OF THE PFA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND ASSISTANT IN THE PFA CENTRAL OFFICE IN LOGAN, UTAH.  WITHOUT THEIR OUTSTANDING SERVICE, THE MEETING WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN AS SUCCESSFUL. 

RESPECTFULLY,

ROGER L. KIESLING, DDS, CHAIR, MT. SECTION, PFA
