Panthera Dental is proud to announce the grand prize winner of the 2023 Master Cup. Patricia Strimb from Germany.

The 2023 Master Cup award ceremony was held at Panthera Dental headquarters on October 6, 2023. Patricia Strimb was crowned in front of the competition partners, media and many Panthera employees.

To win, Patricia had to beat nine other participants from seven different countries. They all received the same material and the same patient profile. The ten participants succeeded in submitting their case after three months of hard work. Knowledge, skills, function and aesthetics were evaluated by renowned judges and dental technicians Oleg Glozanski, Margaret Wibberley, John Wibberley, Sébastien Mioranza (winner of the 2022 edition) and Dr. Michael J. Tholey.

The three winners are Nina Frketin from the UK, Evgeny Korneychuk from Ukraine and Patricia Strimb from Germany. These three finalists automatically won a trip to Panthera Dental headquarters to attend the award ceremony on October 6. During the ceremony, it was announced that Evgeny Korneychuk won second place and Nina Frketin won third.

These three finalists shared over CAN$75,000 in prizes—including an articulator, a furnace, technical articles published in several magazines and a unique 3D-printed ring— all courtesy of Panthera Dental and the competition’s official partners: VITA, Amann Girrbach and LMT.

In addition to the prizes awarded to the winners, VITA presented Lola Welch, of the UK, with a €500 voucher for submitting the best documentation in this edition.

“The entire Panthera Dental team would like to congratulate Patricia on her outstanding work. All functional, aesthetic and documentation criteria were skillfully met,” says Béatrice Robichaud, co-founder and VP Marketing and Customer Experience at Panthera Dental. “Congratulations once again to Evgeny and Nina and especially to the ten participants who submitted impressive work in this edition’s very complex case.”
