Rowan was previously the Chief Dental Technician in Prosthodontics at the University Dental Hospital of Manchester for ten years, having started working there in 1987. He trained Dental technicians at the University of Manchester for over 15 years. Rowan and Finlay have worked together since 1999 and have helped over a thousand patients together.

Scandinavian approach versus RPI system demonstrating the engineering advantage of the Scandinavian system.

FAQ - from a webinar delegate re RPI v Scandinavian denture design system.

Fantastic question from a someone who watched Webinar 2 on partial dentures last week - Really enjoying your seminars these weeks. It is very helpful. Specially since you use the Scandinavian approach to RPD design. I noticed with this approach on Kennedy-I cases, there i no regard for placing a distal rest, but both mesial and distal ones. With a distal rest, there would still be a displacement of the distal extension vertically over the fulcrum line, defeating the purpose of a stress relief clasp. How does this approach protects the stability of the most distal tooth? All the metal reciprocation anteriorly is still indirect retention. Could you help me understand that? Thanks
