Two Faculties for the price of one

The benefits of the MJDF qualification continue long after your exams finish. You will receive an unrivalled package of support for the first six years as you will be a member of both the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) and the Faculty of Dental Surgery.

The MJDF requires you to maintain membership of the awarding bodies and in this case, you would join the FGDP(UK) and FDS (RCS Eng).

After 6 years

Having been a member of both Dental Faculties for six years you will have a clearer idea of your career direction. You can then choose which one Faculty (or both) according to the support that you need.

You cannot get a more comprehensive package of support for your career elsewhere
