Inside Formula 1 with Ivoclar Vivadent
The winner of the Ivoclar Vivadent Formula 1 contest was Dr. Manoj Shankar from Bangalore. Thousands of dentists from India participated in the contest by answering the question on the Tetric N-family. The three winners were awarded a visit to the Formula 1 championship at Bahrain, a Sony laptop, and an LCD flat screen television. An additional 20 participants received cash prizes. Katrin Langer, Ivoclar Vivadent Marketing Manager for India, says, “Formula 1 represents very well the values and strengths of Ivoclar Vivadent. We are pleased about the overwhelmingly positive response which our campaign generated among our customers and we promise that we will launch additional attractive campaigns for our dentists in India.”
