Program Description:

This specialisation program proceeds the two years of postgraduate training in orthodontics and comprises in the first year eight subjects closely related to orthodontic therapy. Facial growth related to orthopaedics, craniofacial deformities and syndromes and the importance of growth acceleration to the growth of the craniofacial complex are given as well. During the second year of specialisation, a lot of attention is given to different indications and different ways of orthodontic treatment. The longitudinal effect of orthodontic and orthopaedic therapy is extensively discussed. In both years of specialisation, the clinical part is the most important one.
