Quality & Reliability in Orthodontics – Support for Spain

An orthodontic specialist is a specialised dentist who understands that orthodontics has its

risks and benefits and that these must be delivered clearly to patients. Orthodontics is a

niche speciality in many countries because of its complexities that take 3-4 years to learn

after obtaining a dental degree.

The further training to become a specialist orthodontist is not just a structural measure

supported by public authorities to ensure the qualification of dentists. The approval of

orthodontic specialist also offers patients a safe and reliable point of orientation in their

search for a specialised practitioner.

The current discussion in Spain on the recruitment of non-specialist physicians may be

understandable against the background of ensuring basic medical care. However, it must

also be taken into account that the citizens of Spain have a right to reliable and quality-

assured specialist care also in the field of orthodontics.

EFOSA appeals to the government of Spain to abandon their opposition to the introduction

of the orthodontic specialist.
