Prosthodontics is a word that many people may not be aware of it. It’s the technical term for dental prosthetics – crowns, implants, dentures and the like. In Australia, the Australian Prosthodontic Society is the national professional organisation for prosthodontic specialists, made up of state-based branches from New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland.

Current President Garry Ecker approched us originally to talk about changing the organisation’s logo to a more traditional shield symbol, but as is often the case with large organisations, a consensus could not be reached and the existing logo was retained. A new web site design – significantly simpler than their existing site – was then created by Starfish Kristy. Because APS wished to incorporate online forums to streamline their communications, we chose the Drupal CMS to power the site – a system that has strong membership integration built right in. Local Drupal specialists Spoon Media helped us out with the implementation.

The site is still in it’s infancy as the committee and members get up to speed with managing the site, updating their profiles, and using the forums – but it’s a solid platform and we’re sure they’ll find it easy to use.
