During training, both general dental subjects and more specific topics related to orthodontics, i.e. diagnosis, treatment planning and execution, are covered. Specialists in training write a scientific article on the basis of research performed during training. Teaching Bachelor and Master students dentistry is a mandatory part of the course.
Orthodontics is a structured, comprehensive program that provides a solid foundation. Moreover, the specialists in training get practical experience in various treatment methods, both removable and fixed appliances. The specialist in training will learn:
- To treat different types of cases, including cases in which an interdisciplinary approach is needed;
- To perform research and to review scientific publications.
To be admitted to the course the applicant must have a degree from an accredited dental education by the European Union. Mastering the Dutch language is also a requirement.
Upon successful completion of the course graduates will receive a certificate of orthodontics, which is valid throughout the EU. To obtain this certificate, the candidate must pass the final evaluation which is conducted by the Consultative DMO which is set by the Registration Committee Dental Specialties (RTS). The specialists in training are also given the opportunity to participate in the examination for the Membership of Orthodontics (Morth) of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
