Three great names of the dental world - Jürg Stuck, Max Bosshart and Peter Lerch - will meet up for a unique round table on November 6 in Leipzig.
The Swiss School of Prosthetics by Candulor and the Quintessenz Verlag present a new format: THE PROSTHETICS TALK SHOW. This is where the "Who's Who" of the dental world meets. We take a peek behind the facade of the personalities and look forward to an encounter of a very special kind. We leave the Covid situation behind us and delve into the past as well as the present of the three legends and allow them to look into the future. Perspectives on a wide variety of prosthetic topics will be discussed in a direct, honest and unbiased manner.
Each one of them - Jürg Stuck, Max Bosshart and Peter Lerch - has made a name for himself in the dental world which is not so easy to ignore. Topics such as patient focus, communication, diagnostics, full and partial dentures are their pet subjects, accompanied by their decades of enthusiasm. They place great importance to viewing patients holistically and helping them within the scope of their expertise and possibilities. They stand for knowledge transfer and have been sharing their experience for decades.
The event will be moderated by Hans Joachim Lotz, who, as an all-rounder, will put the three gentlemen through their paces.
In this context, the rankings of the 2021 KunstZahnWerk competition will be announced. It will remain exciting until the end, to find out who the jury has chosen.
The PROSTHETICS TALK SHOW is a hybrid event. You can either attend in person on site in this unique event or connect from home.
The on site event is in German, however, we offer the livestreaming in German and English.
Max Bosshart has been active in further education and training for over 40 years and is well known within professional circles. Max Bosshart was a collaborator of Professor Gerber for 10 years, assisted him with the only book published by A. Gerber (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders - Diagnostics and Therapy) and is extremely familiar with the methodology. Before that, as a young technician, Max Bosshart worked in various laboratories, preferably in western Switzerland, but there only as a ceramist. It was the call of the industry which brought him to removable dentures, which he practiced holistically as a prosthodontist with a clinic and laboratory until 2017. He used the experience gained in the clinic to critically assess his own technical work in the laboratory. In the 1980s, he developed the mb cuvette - born out of necessity - and has continued its development over the last few years. With this in mind, he also developed a new and patented posterior tooth which provides improved chewing stability. Courses and lectures took him to universities, clinics and laboratories through almost all countries in Europe, North and South America, China, Japan and the Middle East.
After completing his basic training as a dental technician, Peter Lerch opted for professional residencies and further training at home and abroad. In 1988/89 he completed his training as a prosthodontist at the University of Zurich. He worked as a consultant in his institute and is a lecturer in prosthetics and functional analysis. He is also active as a speaker at home and abroad. He is credited with various noteworthy professional publications and video productions. His self-developed treatment concept, the Lerch Concept, is known worldwide and is constantly being refined. In addition, he is and has been involved in various developments such as the CONCEPTOR Alpha (first device to simulate mandibular movement), the SOLUTION ceramic anterior tooth (ENTA) and preciform d (bredent) (impression instrument). In 1994 he founded the I.S.P. Individual System Prothetik AG and later, founded and took over the management of the Institute for Functional Analysis and Prosthetics. These days he deals with, patient consultations, functional analysis and the resulting therapeutic consequences. He is passively involved in the following associations: DGZMK, DGFDT and AKPP.
In 1987, Hans Joachim Lotz, MDT, successfully completed his 3-year dental technician apprenticeship in Würzburg, Germany. Subsequently, he worked as dental technician at the laboratory of M.H. Polz, Fürth, Germany, until 1990. He then changed to the dental laboratory of Jan Langner, Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany. In 1991, he had his first presentation and was engaged in teaching activities in the following fields: wax-up technique, customizing abutments, complex ceramic, and metal restorations. Hans Joachim Lotz obtained his Master’s degree in 1992. The following year, he opened his own dental lab, called “Hans-Joachim Lotz GmbH”. He has been a founding member of the "Dental Excellence International Laboratory Group" since 2002. In 2004, he was trained in dental implantology at the laboratory of Dr Kirsch and Dr Ackermann, Stuttgart, Germany. He has been an educator at the German Society of Implantology (DGI) since 2008 as well as a member of the German Society of Implantology (DGI) since 2009. Since 1991, he has been holding lectures and publishing information regarding the fabrication of complex implant restorations with a focus on functional and gnathological esthetics for edentulous and partially edentulous patients.
Jürg Stuck was born in Burgdorf, Switzerland in 1949.He completed his training as a dental technician in Switzerland in 1969. This was followed by further training all over the world in all areas of dental technology and its associated fields. In 1982 he graduated from the master school in Düsseldorf and has been working in his own laboratory in Germany ever since. Jürg Stuck is known in professional circles through his more than 40 years of international lecturing, seminar and author activities. Always with a focus on the fabrication of dental restorations and the preparatory measures - including the technical dental analysis of the individual patient situation - he developed a stringent working method which he still follows to this day and which he imparts in seminars. In 2003 he received the Heinz Rohde Award from the Düsseldorf Guild and a few years later in 2014 another award "Honor to whom honor is due" from the Congress "A Heart for Dental Technology". And last but not least, he was awarded the Innovation Prize of the DGÄZ in 2018.
