Dentistry in Hungary : Dentist accreditation and qualifications

In order to practise, a Hungarian dentists or surgeon must obtain a governmental certificate and must be named on the door of their surgery.

Hungarian dentists must be fully qualified, with affiliations and membership to international dental organisations.  In order to maintain their license, practicing dentists must accrue enough points each year and they do so by attending training courses, seminars and lectures to keep them continually aware of new technologies and techniques.

A Hungarian dentist trains initially as a ‘general’ dentist and then go on to specialise (in a similar way that a surgeon might become a cosmetic surgeon), so they are either general dentists or specialists in a field of dentistry.  For example, a general dentist can go for a short course and become an Implantologist but an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon has to train for at least an extra two to three years on top of five years at university which makes them better equipped to carry out implant and bone grafting surgery.  This high level training means that dentistry in Hungary offers a very superior service.

The lead dentist should have at least 13-15 years experience in their field.  It is advisable to ask a clinic about the number of implants they have placed and what their success rate is - expect it to be around 97%.  It is also reassuring to know that all surgeries practising dentistry in Hungary are equipped with the latest technology, replacing the out-dated equipment after the collapse of communism.
