About this section

The Odontology Section’s purpose is to provide a unified forum for the continuing professional development for all those working in the field of oral and dental health care sciences by organising a broad range of educational activities. It aims to encourage the participation of trainees in the Section's activities and the RSM as a whole and to commemorate historical links between the RSM, the Odontological Society of London and the Royal College of Surgeons.
