Jonathan Tomlinson, Oral SurgeonOral surgeon Dr. Tomlinson took over what is now Athens Oral Surgery Center in 2011 when he moved to Athens, Georgia with his wife Kimberly. Before moving to the South, Dr. Tomlinson spent his childhood and adolescence in Minnesota, Michigan, and New York. He loves the warm weather and wouldn’t wish shoveling a snow-filled driveway on anyone!


He attended college at Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota, where he graduated cum laude in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and biology. After completing his undergraduate studies, Dr. Tomlinson went to dental school at Boston University’s Goldman School of Medicine. He graduated magna cum laude in 2005.

The majority of oral surgeons in Georgia end their studies after dental school; however, Dr. Tomlinson went on to medical school at the University of Maryland. He received his M.D. in 2008, and began his residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery that same year. From July 2010-June 2011, he was chief resident of oral and maxillofacial surgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center & R. Adam Cowley Shock Trauma Center. Dr. Tomlinson is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
