Dr Brenda Macmillan

After qualifying from Dental school, Dr Brenda Macmillan worked in General practice, before returning to University to study for an MBA at the world-renowned Warwick Business school. She then worked in hospital management in a business development/marketing role at a private hospital in Aberdeen, procuring its first multi million pound Orthopaedic contract. On moving back to England in 2000, Brenda established Gentle Dental Care (now Bespoke Dental). Her mission was to place strong emphasis on patient well-being, to ensure all her patients felt comfortable, relaxed and totally satisfied with their dental experience. The amazing feedback received from patients to this approach, led to the practice winning several awards, including the ‘Denplan Practice of the Year’ and ‘Private Dentistry’ awards.

To assist in the successful treatment of phobic patients, Brenda obtained the Licentiate Diploma in Homeopathic Dentistry, LF Hom (Dent), enabling her to dispense well-proven successful remedies for this cohort of patients.

Mentoring newly qualified dentists has always been a passion and she has a Post graduate Certificate in Medical Education in Dentistry (Cert.Med. Ed.Dent) from the University of Winchester. Brenda has been a trainer with Oxford Dental Deanery for the past 12 years - coaching and assisting young dentists in their transition from Dental School to General practice.

Brenda also offers a range of facial aesthetic treatments: from the prevention and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers to restore facial volume, through to skin treatments such as facial peels and the use of Profhilo to improve skin tone.

Away from the practice, as well as her family commitments, she is a keen rower: being part of the City of Oxford’s Master’s Eight Crew (CORC). She also enjoys a daily run with her faithful, black Labrador, Tilly who acts as her pacer. She has completed several half-marathons... . but is yet to challenge herself to a full one! Her long-time goal is to complete the London Marathon.
