Orthodontic Residency Training Programme

The curriculum of the The Orthodontic Residency Training Programme follows the recommended content by the Erasmus Committee which has been accepted by the European Commissioners in Brussels as satisfying the requirements for specialist practice in Europe. The course consists of clinical and didactic components held at the Faculty of Dentistry and the National Dental Centre.

The fixed appliance techniques taught in the orthodontic programme are a variation of the Straightwire Technique and the Tip-Edge Appliance. Diagnosis and treatment planning sessions, together with case progress discussions are held weekly and a journal club assists the candidates with guided journal reading.  A combined clinic where orthognathic cases are discussed is regularly held.
