With only around 3,000 maxillofacial surgeons in India and rising incidence of oral cancer, there is need for more such medical specialists both in urban and rural areas, experts said Wednesday.

"There are around 3,000 maxillofacial surgeons registered with the Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons of India (AOMSI). This number is not sufficient at all," said Srijon Mukherji, a leading maxillofacial surgeon, on the occasion of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon's day here.
