Southern Maxillofacial Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons Mornington Peninsula

Meet Our Doctors

Brian McMillan

I was born in the United Kingdom and grew up on the Mornington Peninsula. I trained in both Medicine and Dentistry and specialised in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. I graduated in dentistry from the University of Melbourne and Medicine from The University of Adelaide. I undertook my specialist training in Adelaide, completing a Masters degree from the University of Adelaide. The subject of my thesis was investigating a type of surgery to lengthen the lower jaw, and involved clinical work and an animal model. I passed my fellowship examination in 2001 (FRACDS (OMS)).

During my postgraduate training I also completed a Masters degree thesis on clinical and animal model research looking at the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen (breathing pure oxygen in a sealed pressurized chamber) in the management of non-healing bones (osteoradionecrosis) of the face following radiotherapy treatment for head and neck cancer.
