MEET THE SURGEON
Dr. Brian Jackson, DMD, MD
One of the few Dual Degree doctors in Mississippi, Dr. Jackson brings a highly specialized skill set to the Hattiesburg community. Dr. Jackson received his DMD and MD in 2014 and 2017, respectively, from the University of Mississippi Medical Center. After completing his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at UMMC and an OsteoScience clinical observership in Atlanta, Dr. Jackson is now prepared to execute several complicated, cutting-edge procedures that patients in this area have not been able to receive until his arrival.
Starting this July, Dr. Jackson will be doing complex implant cases (such as Zygomatic implants and Pterygoid implants for those with no bone in their upper jaws), nerve repair, and state-of-the-art “Teeth in a Day” operations. “Teeth in a Day” involves a collaborative effort between surgeon, lab, and general dentist that takes four to six hours, in which patients can leave the office with a complete set of new, fixed teeth.
Dr. Jackson has always been interested in dentistry, and, after working for a pediatric dentist and then an oral surgeon, he became fascinated by the surgical side of oral health. Now, he is eager to serve the Hattiesburg community by offering several new procedures to patients in the area. “At Midtown Oral & Facial Surgery, my goal is to come in alongside Dr. Roberson and build upon his practice,” Dr. Jackson said. “My end goal is to have this practice be an absolute, full-scope oral and maxillofacial practice. We will run the entire scope of the oral-maxillofacial practice, from simple surgical procedures all the way to nerve repair and full arch implant restorations.”
Dr. Jackson has participated in medical-dental missions to Haiti and looks forward to getting connected to a church and a missions group in Hattiesburg. He has been married for 12 years and has three daughters (10, 7, and 1).
