Oral and maxillofacial surgery

What is OMFS?

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) is a speciality that is involved in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck.

OMF surgery is unique in requiring a dual qualification in medicine and dentistry, and is often seen as the bridge between medicine and dentistry, treating conditions that require expertise from both backgrounds such as head and neck cancers, salivary gland diseases, facial pain, temporomandibular joint disorders, impacted teeth, facial trauma, cysts and tumours of the jaws as well as numerous problems affecting the oral mucosa such as mouth ulcers and infections.
