Danish specialist training

When you have obtained Danish authorisation and permission to work independently as a dentist, you may start Danish specialist training.

In Denmark, you may complete specialist training in Oral Surgery and Orthodontics.

Specialist training in Orthodontics (3 years) takes place at the Dental schools in Copenhagen and Aarhus.

Specialist training in Oral Surgery (5 years) takes place at recognised hospital departments.

Information about specialist training is available on the website of the Danish Health Authority (Sundhedsstyrelsen). The site is in Danish.

Registration of specialist qualifications

If you have completed specialist training outside Denmark, the Nordic countries, the EU, Liechtenstein or Switzerland, you maj apply the Danish Patient Safety Authority for an assessment of your completed specialist training. If we assess that there are differences compared to the Danish specialist training, you will be asked to complete additional training in Denmark. You can apply for an assessment only after you have received Danish authorisation and permission to work independently.

Please note that in order to make an assessment, you will be asked to send substantial documentation, including details of the contents of your specialist training.

Please contact us at to get more information.


The fee for registration of specialist qualifications is DKK 4,165.
