Dr Franca von Dörnberg is a fully qualified specialist dentist in orthodontics.
After studying dentistry, she completed her two-year dental residency at the Hannover Medical School in the field of prosthodontics and implant restoration. Subsequently, she completed a research stay at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts in the field of periodontology. This dental speciality refers to the healing and treatment of the soft and hard tissues of the periodontium, as well as implantology in the USA.
Dr von Dörnberg then completed a three-year further training course to become a specialist in orthodontics under the auspices of the European Orthodontic Society. This was divided into a two-year period in the practice of Dr. Gundi Mindermann in Bremervörde (long-time chairperson of the Professional Association of German Orthodontists, as well as 1st chairperson of the German Board of Orthodontics), and a one-year period in the Polyclinic for Orthodontics at the Hanover Medical School under the direction of Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwestka-Polly. In this context, Dr. von Dörnberg also treated very pronounced tooth and jaw malpositions (such as patients with cleft lip, jaw and palate or surgical realignment osteotomies).
In addition to this classical and varied training, Dr von Dörnberg has already attended over 100 congresses and further training events in just a few years.
Dentists specialising in orthodontics or dentists with a Master of Science should be clearly distinguished from them.
The exact distinction from dentists specialising in “orthodontics” can be found in detail at the Professional Association of German Orthodontists (BDK). Only a specialist dentist for orthodontics who has been trained specifically and for many years can reach a level in diagnostics and therapy that this special subject requires.
After studying dentistry at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Dr Franca von Dörnberg received her licence to practise dentistry at the end of 2008. At the same time, she received her doctorate in oral and maxillofacial surgery with magna cum laude.
From 2009 to 2011, she spent two years as an assistant at the Department of Prosthodontics and Biomedical Materials Science at Hanover Medical School.
In 2010, Dr von Dörnberg completed a research stay as a Visiting Doctor at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts in the field of periodontology.
From 2011 to 2013, Dr von Dörnberg completed a three-year training programme to become a specialist in orthodontics under the auspices of the European Orthodontic Society. This was divided into a two-year period in the practice of Dr. Gundi Mindermann in Bremervörde (longstanding chairperson of the Professional Association of German Orthodontists, as well as 1st chairperson of the German Board of Orthodontics), and from 2013 to 2014 a one-year period at the Polyclinic for Orthodontics at Hanover Medical School under the direction of Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwestka-Polly.
In 2016, Dr von Dörnberg founded one of the first fully digitalised orthodontic practices in Germany.
She specialises in intraoral scanning and 3D printing. This fully digital workflow enables maximum precision and comfort for the patient. In this context, Dr von Dörnberg also conducts in-office courses for specialist colleagues.
The main focus of her clinical work is orthodontic treatment of children, adolescents and adults as well as the lingual technique, Invisalign, the digital workflow and interdisciplinary treatment concepts, which she also publishes.
Dr von Dörnberg is a member of numerous professional associations.
