Two Faculties for the price of one

The benefits of the MJDF qualification continue long after your exams finish. Upon successful completion of the MJDF you can become a ‘full’ member of the two dental faculties for less than the price of a single membership for the next six years, with an unrivalled package of support from the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) and the Faculty of Dental Surgery. You can also choose to become a member of just one of the faculties.

After 6 years

Depending on your career direction, you can choose which of the faculties to join, whether this is dedicated support in primary care dentistry from the FGDP(UK) or in secondary care from the FDS. You can also choose to remain a member of both faculties.

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