Posted on April 18, 2012
Since 2001, Candulor has held the annual International KunstZahnWerk® (Art of Prosthetics) Competition, culminating with an award ceremony and press conference held during the IDS in Cologne (Germany). The 1st North American competition attracted 49 registered participants. An independent jury made up of prosthetics specialists judged the 10 submitted entries, and the winning entries were announced at the 2012 LMT Lab Day Chicago during the Candulor press conference and awards ceremony at the Sheraton Hotel and Tower on February 24, 2012. The theme of this year's Candulor KunstZahnWerk® Competition was "Removable over Implants." The entries were reviewed and assessed by an esteemed panel of experts. They were evaluated as part of a comprehensive process based on the following criteria: functionality, esthetics, bar construction and overall workmanship. Also considered was the participants’ documentation of the process when creating their entries.
