Since 2001, Candulor AG has organized the KunstZahnWerk® , "Art of Denture" Competition culminating with awards and participants' cases being presented at the IDS in Cologne (Germany).
In 2012, Candulor USA held the 1st North American "Art of Denture" Competition with technicians from the US and Canada participating. All finished cases were presented in Chicago during 2012 LMT Lab Day. All submitted incredible work, with Arian Deutsch (Surprise, AZ) placing 1st in the Overall category (see case pictured above) and Jack Edwards (Fullerton, CA) placing 1st in the digital documentation category.
Now it's time for the 2nd North American "Art of Denture" Competition. Contestants from the USA and Canada will have the opportunity to display their proficiency in the field of Removable Dentures by making a fully removable upper and a lower supported by locators. The finished cases will be judged by a jury of professionals, and the competition will culminate with an awards presentation in Chicago at the 2014 LMT Lab Day.
Candulor and CAMLOG will provide, free of charge, the full patient case including the appropriate plaster models, Candulor Composite NFC+ denture teeth, Camlog implant parts, and a detailed patient case history.
