  • Hello

    Please read my previous comment. One needs BOTH Dental and Medical degrees to pursue Maxfac in Europe.

    If you wish to learn German, you can learn in your country as well. Please search for “Goethe Institute” in your country.

  • Hello Avijite

    Subsequent to the European Specialist Medical Qualification Order (1995) it is now mandatory that a doctor must be a registered medical and dental practitioner in order to be eligible for inclusion in the specialist register for oral and maxillofacial surgery. This register is held by the General Medical Council.”

    Germany too by virtue of falling under the ambit of European Qualifications Network, follow the GMC.

    Hope it is clear.

    Oral maxillo facial surgery is one of specialization in dentistry that you offer.Dental surgeon can be a oral maxillo facial surgeon.
    That’s why it seems possible to participate in post graduate specialization.
    Can u confirm me regarding my eligibility?
