Meet Dr. Brandon Newell, oral and maxillofacial surgeon
Thu, Oct 4, 2018
Dr. Brandon Newell had a decision to make: Continue to follow his father and grandfather’s footsteps and enjoy a career as an orthodontist, or blaze a new trail.
His decision led him off the familial path and on to a career as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
“It was really late when I chose it. I went in with the ambitions of being an orthodontist, but knew that wasn’t what I wanted to do,” says Newell, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon with Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons BayCare Clinic. “My father and grandfather were orthodontists, but I needed something with a quicker pace.”
As an oral surgeon, Newell performs a number of procedures, including dental implants, facial reconstructive and orthognathic surgery, head, neck and oral pathology and more.
His love for surgery fuels his day-to-day routine.
“I like that what I do is a combination of both dental and medicine,” Newell says. “You really don’t know what oral surgery truly is until you start experiencing it. Now, I enjoy seeing the cases and working with my patients.”
While many of the patients who seek his expertise are often worried or nervous, he strives to help ease those fears.
“I want to come across as an easy-going guy. I don’t want people to be stressed out. I try to keep the atmosphere pretty light,” he says.
That’s easy, with a little help from staff and his oral surgery partners.
“The doctors and staff here are fantastic to work with,” Newell says. “We all kind of practice about the same way as far as treatment plans and that sort of thing. But we all have different personalities that form a pretty unified group.”
Outside of the office, he enjoys outdoor activities year-round, such as hiking, camping, golfing, water skiing and snow skiing.
But his No. 1 hobby?
“My children,” Newell says.
Dr. Brandon E. Newell is a physician with Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons BayCare Clinic. He sees patients in Green Bay, Manitowoc, and Sturgeon Bay.
