Membership of Joint Dental Faculties (MJDF)

The MJDF was introduced in 2007 as a replacement for the MFDS (RCS Eng) and the MFGDP(UK) examinations. The only way of applying for the MJDF, both in the UK and overseas centres, is to apply online.

As soon as your exam fee has been taken using our online exam-booking facility, you are allocated a place in the examination. Your exam place will be guaranteed once you have submitted all the necessary documentation to MJDF Exams Department.
