Orthodontic specialty Training: The good, the bad and the ugly - Amy Gallacher, British Orthodontic Society

Applying to the orthodontic specialty training pathway can be a difficult and daunting process. Dental graduates have a number of career pathways to choose from, and for those considering a career as an orthodontic specialist, an in-depth understanding of the training pathway is useful.

This talk will outline what it is like to be an Orthodontic Registrar and describe the typical registrar timetable. We will discuss the great opportunities offered to those in specialty training, but also address some of the more difficult aspects of training. Overall, the talk aims to give a realistic view of what to expect from ‘life as an orthodontic registrar’ and aims to support those interested in applying to the speciality in making a considered and informed career choice.
