Maxillofacial Prosthetics is a field of prosthodontics that focuses on the rehabilitation of patients who have birth deformities or limitations that have arisen as a result of disease or trauma. Replacing lost bone or tissue and restoring oral functions including swallowing, speech, and chewing are common uses for prostheses. In some cases, a face or body prosthesis may be required for cosmetic or psychosocial reasons.

The course aimed to enable participants to have a wider view of maxillofacial prosthodontics and improve their hand skills in constructing facial replacements.
