Hello, my name is Joshua Schaefer. I am 30 years old, and I graduated from NAIT in 2017 from the Denturist Program. It had been a goal of mine to become a denturist for quite a while. It all started when I was six years old. My mom (Barbara Schaefer) would bring me into the denture clinic with her and let me play around with wax and teeth. When I was eight years old, I told my mom I wanted to be a denturist. She agreed and encouraged me but did not “hold her breath” because you and I both know that kids say the silliest things!
However, by the time I was 12, I had a lot more exposure to the family denture clinic. I would go to work when I had a day off school and even helped out on summer vacations. When I was in Senior High School, I searched online for the requirements for the Denturist Program at NAIT. This was the time I really set my sights on becoming a denturist.
After graduating high school, I took some time off school to work and earned some money to travel the world and pay for my schooling. After backpacking in Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia with my younger brother for 75 days in 2013-14, I was accepted into the denturist program at NAIT. Now I could start working towards my goal of becoming a Denturist.
I have since travelled again with my younger brother. We went to the Philippines for a month. We saw the most beautiful beaches and met many very nice people! I enjoyed travelling pre-COVID-19, and I look forward to travelling again once it’s a bit more safe. In my spare time, I enjoy being active, spending time with my friends and skiing when the weather permits me to do so!
I am happy to be giving amazing new smiles to all my patients, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me. I am a 3rd generation denturist, following in my mom’s footsteps while she is following in my grandfather, Gerhard Schaefer’s footsteps. So, I guess you could say it’s in my blood! Hopefully, we will see you in our office soon!
My name is Barbara Schaefer and I have been a denturist for 35+ years. When I first started working as a denturist, I was trained by my father Gerhard Schaefer; early in my career, it was just the two of us running the clinic. Since then I have gone on to train as a dental lab technician and have helped train my son (Joshua Schaefer) as a denturist.
During my many years practicing I have learned a lot and watched the clinic grow from a 2-person team to a 4-person team. While our team has gotten bigger the Schaefer Denture Clinic still feels like a very intimate family-run business. From the moment you walk in the door, you will be greeted by any one of our friendly team members, including the two other denturists (Martina and Joshua) or Marci, who works at our front end.
I am a very patient-oriented person. My number one concern is your satisfaction. Our team, myself included will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with the fit, function, and look of your denture. It would be our pleasure to help you achieve that healthy natural smile that you have always wanted. I can’t wait to have the chance to meet you!
My name is Martina, and I am a Denturist here at Schaefer Denture Clinic.
I have always been interested in oral health and knew since early age that I wanted to work in a dental profession. Throughout high school, I worked at a retirement home, and that allowed me to peek into the world of dentures. The fascination grew quickly, and next thing I knew I got accepted into the Denturist program at NAIT in 2019. I have been working with Schaefer Denture Clinic since Aug, 2022.
In my free time you can find me at the gym or enjoying nature. I also love to spend time with family and friends, often playing games and enjoying good food. I also speak fluent Croatian.
I am consistently inspired by each patient I meet, and love working together towards creating their ideal smile.
Hello, I’m Marci. I will most likely be the first face you see when you walk into the clinic or the voice you hear when you call!
I’m a proud mother of three daughters. In my spare time, I enjoy watching motocross, spending time with my daughters, or relaxing at home. I also enjoy travelling, when it is possible.
I look forward to seeing you soon. I’m always happy to help!
After opening the clinic 65 years ago, my husband (Gerhard Schaefer) and I worked very hard to get it running. I was doing a lot of work in reception and bookkeeping. I have since retired and now enjoy gardening and spending time with my many grandchildren.
We are quite blessed to have our daughter (Barbara Schaefer) and our grandson (Joshua Schaefer) looking after the clinic for us now. We know it is in good hands.
