Mission Valley San Diego Oral Surgeon Dr. Brislin Jr.
Thomas V. Brislin Jr., the youngest of six children, grew up in Harveys Lake, Pennsylvania. He’s a natural athlete and enjoyed competing in soccer, volleyball and is an avid water sports enthusiast. Tom was a Varsity Soccer player while he attended Saint Joseph’s University during his undergraduate studies and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. “Crunching numbers,” Tom realized, was not his real passion. He decided to pursue Dentistry (We are glad he did!!!) and in 2011, he graduated from Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
After Dental School, Tom was commissioned as a General Dental Officer in the United States Navy and was stationed at Camp Pendleton, California. In 2013, Lieutenant Brislin was part of Pacific Angel Vietnam, a multi-service Medical and Dental Humanitarian Mission in Vietnam. Tom was Honorably discharged from the US Navy and completed his Oral Maxillofacial Surgery residency training at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was during his residency training that he realized his great interest in the pathology of the head and neck, Implant restorations of missing teeth and advanced sedation techniques.
Tom and his wife, Kirby, have four children. The family returned to Southern California to enjoy the sand, sun, and surf. When he’s not busy transforming smiles with his oral surgery skills, he is spending time with his family at the beach, camping, running or golfing.
