The Panthera Master Cup is a contest open to any dental technician, dentist or denturist who wants to compete with the best. Knowledge and skills will be evaluated on a full upper and lower case that involves implant bars.

Contestants will be provided with a case and will need to complete it within a specific period of time. Each contestant will also need to document their work and include said documentation with their final submission. A jury of five people will then use a predetermined criteria list to evaluate all cases and select the winner.
