The full line up of exciting speakers will be announced shortly


Ivoclar UK would like to invite you to join us on October 21st/22nd 2022 for our 2 day Masters of removable prosthetics event to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the introduction of the BPS (Biofunctional Prosthetic System). The event will be held at the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre, Beeston Lane, The University of Nottingham, Nottingham NG7 2RJ

Since it’s introduction, the BPS (Biofunctional Prosthetics System) has provided dental professionals around the world with a systematic workflow to enable both the clinician and dental technician to work alongside one another to produce dentures that meet the increasing demands of our patients.

The system is trusted by dental professional and has been used as a base to develop some of the most successfull and accurate techniques for producing removable and implant prosthetics including the Dr Jiro Abe SEMCD (Suction Effective Mandibular Complete Denture) technique and most recently, the Ivotion Digital Denture System.


This 2 day event aims to deliver an in depth look into all aspects of the system and explain the evolution of the BPS and Ivotion Digital Denture System detailing how they are enabling dental professionals to deliver consistent results by providing premium solutions for their patients. By deep diving into topics, including those which are rarely covered, participants will be shown the full range of applications of both systems, how they are intrinsically connected and cover exactly what a real understanding of the systems will enable participants to achieve in their everyday workflow.

We have carefully designed this 2 day programme to take you on the interesting evolution of the system, from its roots in the original Gnathomat, how this led onto the development of the Stratos articulator, UTS Transferbow and set up templates right up to the system being used to develop the Ivotion Digital Denture System which now enables beautiful Digital Dentures to be delivered in just 2 appointments., we will cover all topics in greater detail than ever before.

All speakers are true leading removable experts and will be sharing their insights into the techniques, meaning the 2 days promise to be full of incredibly useful information, tips and tricks as well as examples of the real world applications by those who use the systems everyday.

The event aims to provide a unique and in depth look into all aspects of the BPS and Ivotion Digital Denture system to enable delegates to improve their knowledge and understanding as how best to use the full range of indications for the systems.
