Surgical Dermatology
A number of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS)  departments carry out Surgical Dermatology.

This might seem odd at first glance, but the clinicians often have had first-hand experience of suturing up (sewing up)
faces.  Often, if one of the consultants in
OMFS Department has an interest in Surgical Oncology, there is a
concomitant interest in
Surgical Dermatology.

Hence, in an
OMFS Department you may have skin lesions removed / biopsied or have scars revised.  Consequently,
advice can be given regarding the care for scars, diagnoses of skin lesions etc.

I list below a number of websites that provide a broader and more profound knowledge of
dermatology than this
website hopes to provide.

Useful Websites:


British Association of Dermatologists

Wales College of Medicine Department of Dermatology

Australasian College of Dermatologists

New Zealand Dermatological Society
