Robert Kirschen is new BOS orthodontic patron
Robert Kirschen is appointed the new honorary patron of the British Orthodontic Society (BOS).
Born in Brussels to a Belgian father and English mother, Robert moved to the UK in 1967.
He qualified from Guys in 1975 and completed his orthodontic qualification in 1980.
Robert began working in specialist practice in 1982, and in 1985 was one of the first outside of London to fully convert to private practice.
He was involved with postgraduate training up until 2010, having a long relationship with the Royal London Hospital.
Robert has a long history with the BOS and also one of its forerunners, the BAO.
‘Representing the best interests of all’
He has served on BOS committees for many years and has been chairman of both the conference and ethics committees.
‘I am immensely honoured and delighted to take up this ambassadorial role,’ he said.
‘I hope that with my long history at the BOS, I can help represent the best interests of all.
‘I’m looking forward to making and renewing friendships and helping the Society in any way I can.’
The British Orthodontic Society welcomes both orthodontists and dentists.
The Society strives to promote the study and practice of orthodontics, to maintain and improve professional standards in orthodontics and to encourage research and education in orthodontics.
In doing so, BOS seeks to improve the quality of medical care for the benefit of patients.
