Orthodontic Education
Orthodontic graduate education programs in egypt
The Departments of Orthodontics, Faculties of Dentistry in Egypt, offer two advanced educational programs in Orthodontics: A Three-year program leading to the Master's degree of Dental Sciences in Orthodontics (MDSc Orthod). And a doctor degree of Dental Sciences in Orthodontics (DDSc Orthod). The candidates must hold a MDSc Orthod to be eligible for the registration in the DDSc Orthod program. Candidates in the two programs will be qualified to have a greater depth of research, academic, educational and clinical experiences in Orthodontics.

Master's degree of dental science orthodontics ( MDSC Orthod )
The Master's degree of Dental Sciences in Orthodontics (MDSc Orthod) is a full-time mandatory attendance of Three years of postgraduate theoretical, practical and clinical program requiring completion of course requirements and a research thesis.
The first year is mainly composed of basic science subjects. The second and Third years encompass a core program of orthodontics (major subject), basic related subjects, and clinical orthodontics. At the end of the first academic year, the candidates must pass a qualifying examination in all subjects in order to be eligible for registration of their research thesis.

The research thesis program:
Each candidate undertakes a research thesis in a specified orthodontic problem. The Chairperson of the Department of Orthodontics and the Dental Scientific Committee must approve the research protocol. After a minimum of 12 months of the approval date, the candidate can submit the results of the research as a thesis. The candidate presents and defends the thesis. The thesis will be discussed in public arbitrated by three independent referees. After the successful public defense of the candidate, the Scientific Committee will approve the thesis.

The clinical orthodontic requirements:
A specified number of original cases of malocclusions is assigned to each candidate. These cases must be orthodontically treated to the satisfaction of the Department Scientific Board. The treated cases must cover different Classes of dental malocclusions, and must show that the candidate mastered orthodontic biomechanics and the associated different fixed, removable, and functional appliances. Each candidate will present to the examination board at least seven cases, with full records, two of them must be related to surgical orthodontics.
Doctoral degree of dental sciences in orthodontics ( DDS Orthod )
To be eligible for registration in this program, the student must:
1. Hold a Master's degree of Dental Sciences in Orthodontics (MDSc Orthod).
2. Submit a research protocol dealing with a specified orthodontic problem. The Chairperson of the Department of Orthodontics and the Scientific Committee must approve the research the protocol.

The Doctoral degree of Dental Sciences in Orthodontics (DDSc Orthod), is a full time study of a minimum of 24 months. The DDSc Orthod program consists of the candidate's doctoral dissertation research, condensed seminars in advanced orthodontics and related subjects, Orthodontic Journals Study Clubs, and clinical orthodontics.
The Orthodontic courses for the Doctoral degree of Dental Sciences in Orthodontics are covering, in deeper and wider perspectives, the same topics of orthodontic courses for the Master's degree of Dental Sciences in Orthodontics.

The research dissertation program:
At the end of the research project, after a minimum of 24 months from the registration date, each candidate is required to submit the results of the original research work as a doctoral dissertation. The dissertation will be discussed in public arbitrated by three independent referees. After the successful public defense of the candidate, the Scientific Committee will approve the dissertation.

The clinical orthodontic requirements:
A specified number of original cases of malocclusions will be assigned to the candidate. These cases must be orthodontically treated to the satisfaction of the Scientific Board of the Department. The candidate will present to the examination board at least seven cases, with full records, two of them must be related to surgical orthodontics.

The final examinations for the Doctoral degree of Dental Sciences in Orthodontics will be held after the fulfillment of all the clinical requirements and after the acceptance of the dissertation by both the Arbitration Board and the Scientific Committee. These examinations include a written examination, a practical examination, an oral examination, and clinical presentations of orthodontic cases.
