The Concept

The LF8 Congress is an independent academic event. It is not organized by anyone of the producers, nor does it promote any manufacturer’s interests. This is a transparent all-above-board training event.
The first Congress day consists of lectures, during which the world-renowned stars of the dental scene deliver academic lectures. Advertising presentations are prohibited, which allows the attendees to get the most of the objective and unbiased information concerning techniques and technologies without that is not linked to any brand.

It is common knowledge that carrying out such large-scale events is impossible without the support of sponsors. Therefore, the format of the Congress is designed in such a way as to give our Partners an opportunity to present their products and solutions. During the second day of the Congress, the LF8 Sponsors will hold a series of presentations, seminars and master classes. Also, a Promo Zone will be organized in the lobby of the Congress hall for placing Partner Stands, at which the forum participants will be able to get acquainted with cutting edge novelties.


The LF Congress was first organized in 2010 as a Congress of dental technicians in Ukraine (LABFORUM). With the development of the Project and growing interest from prosthodontists, it was decided to change the format of the event, and since 2013 the Congress has become LABFORUM International Prosthetic Congress.

However, it was not only the name that got changed. The Congress became more dentist-technician team oriented. After all, only teamwork, in adequate and mutual knowledge of modern methods of prosthetics, can assure the success of restoration!

Today, LF8 is a global event for dentists (65% of attendees) and dental technicians (35%), to set the tone for the development of prosthetic dentistry in Eastern Europe.

We bring to your attention some Video Presentations on the two latest Congresses:

The LF8 Prosthetic Congress is held under the auspices of the Bio-Emulation Group. This international research group includes a number of outstanding experts in Restorative Dentistry.

As of today, the Bio-Emulation Group is credited as the ultimately prestigious and esteemed dental community in the world. Few are the dentists or dental technicians who can become members of the group; to qualify, they have made a significant contribution to the development of modern dental science and achieved outstanding success in the practice of dentistry.

Pascal Magner, Edward McLaren, Jungo Endo, Sasha Hein, Oliver Brix, Augustus Bruguera … These names speak for themselves as the brightest of the stars.
The Group was established by three dentists: Gianfranco Politano (Italy), Javier Tapia Guadix (Spain) and Panagiotis Bazos (Greece). We take pride in the fact that all of them have already spoken at our Congresses in Kyiv.
The Bio-Emulation Group is independent and it is not sponsored by any of the manufacturers. Many universities in the world consider it an honor to provide their research laboratories to the members of the Group.

It is a great honor for us, as organizers of the Congress, to garner the scientific support of the Bio-Emulation Group. At the same time, however, it is a huge responsibility. We will make every effort to ensure that the LF8 Congress is held again at the highest level and our guests leave the Congress with warm memories of the professional atmosphere and hospitality of Ukraine!


Traditionally, the Sponsors and Partners of the Congress are the world’s leading manufacturers and local companies.

In the lobby of the Conference, a Promo-Zone will be organized with Partners’ Stands, which will feature numerous novel dental products and technologies.

The entrance to the promo zone is free!
