Robert Kirschen: Announced as new honorary patron of the 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. He 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 has had a long relationship with the Royal London Hospital and was involved with post-graduate training up until 2010.
Robert has a long history with the British Orthodontic Society (BOS) and also one of its forerunners, the BAO. He has served on BOS committees for many years and has been Chairman of both the Conference and Ethics committees.
Robert said: “I am immensely honoured and delighted to take up this ambassadorial role. I hope that with my long history at the BOS, I can help represent the best interests of all. I look forward to making and renewing friendships and helping the Society in any way I can.”
The British Orthodontic Society welcomes both orthodontists and dentists.
