Dentists in Hungary – Further Information

The Hungarian Medical Chamber which is made up of dentists and physicians is the central organization to which all Hungarian dentist's must belong (currently about 5000 dentists in practice). The chamber supervises its members deciding on suitability to practice and proper ethical conduct.

Dental Ethics

The Medical Chamber's ethical standards are enforced upon its members. Ethical committees meet at both local and national level: the make up of these committees is dependent on the nature of the breach of practice being investigated. The Council of European Dentists' code of ethics also applies to Hungarian dentists.


Ethical complaints are dealt with by the Medical Chamber. All other complaints will typically be sent first to the provider of the treatment, if resolution of the problem fails then a complaint may be addressed to the National Public Health & Medical Officers Service. Finally, complaints may be addressed through the common courts.

Continuing education

Hungary has a system of mandatory continuing education. The system allows dentists to aggregate points from a number of training courses over a 5 year period up to the full requirement of 250 points. In practice this represents around 250 hours of additional training for dentists in each 5 year period.

Data Protection

Hungary complies with EU regulations on data protection. Adherence is monitored by an independent ombudsman in accordance with The Health Data Processing Act of 1997. This act guarantees an individuals access to their medical records in a timely fashion as well as the protection of data by medical practitioners.
