What makes an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon special?
Current requirements for entry to the OMS training program requires both dental and medical degrees. In addition to a surgery in general residency, they have completed a dedicated four-year advanced surgical training program through the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (RACDS). The Fellowship awarded by the college is the FRACDS (OMS) and is the qualification recognised for registration as an OMS specialist surgeon in Australia and New Zealand. This means that an OMS is the specialist bridging the gap between medicine and dentistry.
