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.
