Andrew Birnie
Consultant Oral Surgeon

BDS MFDS RCS Ed MOralSurg

GDC number 77987

Originally from Northern Ireland, Andrew qualified from Dundee University in 2000.

Since then, he has spent the majority of his career in Oral Surgery. He now works as a Consultant Oral Surgeon at the Royal Cornwall Hospital.

Following graduation, he spent twelve months in general dental practice in Fife before spending a year living and working in Australia. He moved back to Dundee to take up a post as a Senior House Officer in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and in 2003, Cornwall beckoned.

Initially working as a Senior House Officer and then progressing to Staff Grade in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Andrew completed his membership exam at the dental faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh in 2004.

After gaining further training and experience, he completed the tri-collegiate specialty exam in Oral Surgery in 2013. He has worked as a Consultant Oral Surgeon in Cornwall since 2016.

Andrew has considerable training and experience across the whole remit of oral surgery in both hospital and dental practice settings. He manages the implant clinic at the hospital for the dental rehabilitation of oncology/facial trauma patients. He also has a special interest in the surgical exposure/removal of impacted teeth as part of orthodontic treatment plans. Andrew understands that people are often anxious about surgical procedures but believes that they can be a positive experience for most patients. He runs a sedation clinic at the hospital designed for those who are nervous.

With a current departmental leadership role at the hospital and involvement in the Managed Clinical Network (MCN) for Oral Surgery in SW England, Andrew is well positioned at the cutting edge of Oral Surgery practice and policy.

Outside of work, he enjoys spending time in the beautiful Cornish outdoors with his wife and four young children.
