Fellowship by assessment
Fellowship is the pinnacle of membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. There are a number of routes to fellowship, the newest of which is FDS by assessment.
A dental surgeon is eligible to apply for this award if he/she:
- has more than ten years in continuous good standing;
- holds a membership diploma recognised by the FDS;
- and has demonstrated commitment to upholding the highest clinical standards and excellence in all aspects of his/her work.
The award of Fellowship by Assessment is an honour merited by the breadth and depth of achievement in dental surgery and denotes the esteem in which a recipient is held by his/her peers. It is ultimately in the gift of the Board on the recommendation of the FDS Fellowship and Awards Committee.Find out more about FDS Fellowship by Assessment.
