Oral and maxillofacial surgery in Ireland
Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) is one of the nine surgical specialties and is unique in that it requires qualifications in both medicine and dentistry. To become a specialty training registrar (StR) or consultant, it is necessary to obtain a fellowship in surgery, and most people will also complete a fellowship in dental surgery or equivalent. Registration with the Irish Medical Council and the Irish Dental Council is required. Despite the long training period, it offers a diverse professional life that is both challenging and rewarding for those who take the leap and return to pursue their second degree towards this specialty.
