Why certification?

The GBO Certificate is proof that an orthodontist has demonstrated a high level of expertise and excellent high professional skills in a standardized testing process (certification) in front of a panel of experts. The GBO Certificate is a benchmark of quality that can be obtained only after completing specialist dental training and at least 5 years of professional practice. Certification is not a one-time procedure. Diplomates are committed to regular recertification throughout their professional lives. The board certification is therefore a voluntary commitment to life-long training on a high professional level.

Board certifications are less known in Germany than in the English-speaking countries, where board systems for demonstrating particular professional qualifications have been around for decades. The board certification is thus not equivalent to a specialist dental training but located on a much higher level. There are no qualification options above the board qualification.
