To celebrate the work of highly skilled denture technicians and elevate the status of the specialty, Candulor is sponsoring its second North American "Art of Denture" Competition, inviting U.S. and Canadian technicians to fabricate fully removable upper and lower dentures supported by locators.
The finished cases will be judged by a jury of professionals—including a university professor, master dental technician, an implant specialist and a Candulor specialist—and the competition culminates with an awards presentation at the 2014 LMT LAB DAY in Chicago, February 21-22, where all finished cases are prominently displayed in the Candulor Gallery on the LB Promenade in the Chicago Sheraton Hotel and Towers.
Candulor and CAMLOG provide the materials free of charge, including the appropriate plaster models, Candulor Composite NFC+ denture teeth, Camlog implant parts and a detailed patient case history.
Prizes for the Best Work Overall category are: first prize, $1,000 and an exclusive feature in LMT; second prize, $750; third prize, $500. Participants are encouraged to submit step-by-step documentation in order to win additional prizes in the categories of "Digital Documentation" and "Hardcopy Documentation."
