EBO Examination

About the EBO

In 1997 the Society held the first examination for the European Board of Orthodontists.

The purpose of the Board

To enhance the standards of orthodontic treatment throughout Europe

by providing a standard against which the orthodontists who so desire can be judged independently of national examinations and barriers, by an expert panel of European orthodontists nominated by the Council of the European Orthodontic Society.

The objectives of the Board

To encourage the spirit of self-improvement among colleagues who are recognised specialists in orthodontics.

Membership

We welcome new EBO members!

There are two pathways leading to EBO membership.

Established orthodontists, who are 5 years or more following completion of postgraduate training, are required to sit all components of the examination in one sitting.

For recently graduated orthodontists, a 2-phase examination has been introduced. Detailed information may be downloaded from the EOS website.

If you wish to join the EBO, please complete the EBO application form.

In order to examine a large number of cases fairly and accurately, it is important that the case presentations are standardized as this helps the work of the Examination Committee Members.

You can find documents in the next section to help you prepare the presentation, and the documents you should adhere to when bringing a presentation.
