Become a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgery


Our Members are at the heart of our College community, working together to deliver excellence for the benefit of patient care.

We are a worldwide community of dental professionals striving to achieve and maintain excellence in oral healthcare. The high cost of dental training is of great concern to the College and we are working to find ways to reduce costs. Members receive substantial discounts on our CPD-approved training courses, free subscriptions to Dental Update and Orthopaedic Update, and a free Athens password. Our Members automatically receive the internationally-recognised post-nominal MFDS RCPS(Glasg).

Membership is open to applicants who have successfully completed the MFDS examination with us. Membership is also open to those who have sat and passed a membership examination in another UK/Irish Royal College or have 10 years post-BDS clinical experience and can demonstrate they have surpassed the MFDS syllabus and requirements.

Please review the application checklist here and the eligibility criteria to join the Faculty of Dental Surgery here before commencing your application.

I am motivated by the inspirational people I have the privilege of working with as patients. It is a huge honour to have the opportunity to try and make a difference to people and their experience of life. I am also hugely motivated by the students I have been given the opportunity to work with and learn from.
