Schottlander Prizes

The BSSPD, in association with Schottlander offers two annual prizes for the advancement of knowledge in Prosthetic Dentistry.

The main prize will be awarded for an Oral Presentation delivered to the Annual Conference of the Society and is for £750. There is one prize available each year.

Schottlander also provide a prize for the best Poster Display. This takes the form of a cash award of £150 for a single winner. If the judges recommend that the prize should be awarded to two posters, the cash award would be £100 each.

Prize winners will receive a certificate and are normally invited to a dinner hosted by Brian Schottlander.

Applicants for either prize should submit an abstract relating to their application (500 words maximum) via the annual conference part of the website.

Brian Schottlander

The BSSPD is greatly indebted to the continued support of Dr Brian Schottlander (above). He and his company have been a longstanding supporter of the society for over twenty years and his keen personal interest in the development of increasing knowledge in prosthodontics for the benefit of patients has been an effective driving force to spur on researchers and clinicians to present for the BSSPD Schottlander Prizes.
