At Acacia Dental Care, all are welcome. We’re a judgment-free office where you can always get the treatment you need for a bright smile, a healthy mouth, and a pain-free life. Dr. Edwin Brookes, our dentist, has more than two decades of experience in dentistry. Whether you need a simple teeth cleaning, a replacement for an old filling, or a brand new set of dental implants, our team is here for you.
Dr. Edwin Brookes is originally from the East Coast, but he’s now a proud Wisconsinite. He was born and raised in New Hampshire, and attended college in Upstate New York. After graduating from his undergraduate program, Dr. Brookes got his first taste of dentistry while working as a dental technician at a dental lab. He also worked as a dental hygienist while attending Tufts University for dental school.
Dr. Brookes graduated from Tufts with his dental degree in 2004. After working for six years in a Massachusetts dental practice, he moved to North Carolina to be closer to his then-fiance (now wife) Carolyn, during her residency as an oral surgeon. He also moved with her to Melbourne, Australia during Carolyn’s fellowship at an Australian hospital, where he further broadened his dental horizons. Dr. Brookes has also been involved in dental missions to Ukraine, Haiti, Cape Verde, and Mexico.
Shortly after he and his wife moved to Milwaukee, Dr. Brookes founded Acacia Dental Care in 2017. His goal was to create a practice where patients could get the truly personalized, gentle care they needed for healthy mouths and healthy lives. Dr. Brookes is a highly-qualified dentist with more than 20 years of experience in the field. He’s a member of the ICOI (International Congress of Oral Implantologists), the American Dental Association, and the Wisconsin Dental Association, to name just a few.
When he’s not in the office or continuing his dental education, Dr. Brookes is passionate about the outdoors. He loves hiking, skiing, rowing, and many other outdoor activities, as well as cooking and woodworking. You’ll also find him spending time with his wife, Carolyn, and their two children.
Dr. Brookes is a highly-educated and involved dentist, and has undergone extensive training and professional development. He’s a member of the following organizations:
If you’re ready to get started at Acacia Dental Care, we make it easy. Schedule today, and you’ll pay just $120 for our new patient special. There are no hidden fees or additional costs to worry about. Your new patient appointment includes:
*New patients only. Not valid with insurance. Not valid in cases of periodontal disease.
At your first visit, you’ll be welcomed into our comfortable dental office, and you’ll fill out a few forms in our comfortable waiting area. Feel free to relax, and connect to our free WiFi network. When it’s time for your appointment, you’ll be taken back to an operatory. One of our hygienists will take x-rays of your mouth, and check for any obvious dental issues. Then, they’ll clean your teeth. Your hygienist will scrape away plaque and tartar, polish your teeth, and floss them to remove any remaining debris. This leaves you with a clean, healthy, beautiful smile.
After your cleaning is done, Dr. Brookes will come into the room. He will perform a comprehensive oral exam to look for any signs of oral health problems. Then, he’ll discuss his findings with you. If your mouth is healthy, you can simply schedule your next appointment and head home. But if he finds an issue that needs to be addressed, Dr. Brookes will discuss all of your available options, and recommend a treatment plan based on your budget, your schedule, and your own personal preferences.
Amazing staff! Everyone there makes you feel welcome and well cared for as a patient. Dr. Brookes is amazing at his job and makes going to the dentist a pleasant experience!
First time here. Very enjoyable experience. They had my insurance info and previous records before my visit. Receptionist was nice and the assistant was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Brookes was friendly and easy going. I had to make the switch when I started a new job but I am glad I made the switch to Acacia Dental Care.
Dr. Brookes and staff are excellent. They are always timely without rushing. They listen to all questions and are very knowledgeable. Dr. Brookes has a conservative approach to dental care and doesn’t push unnecessary procedures.
We’re dedicated to investing in the latest dental technology to provide exceptional patient experiences at Acacia Dental Care. One of our most unique investments is the Nomad handheld x-ray scanner. This digital x-ray machine makes it easy to capture images of your teeth, jaw, and gums. The speed, accuracy, and precision of our digital x-rays reduce waiting times, streamline your appointment, and allow Dr. Brookes to get better insights into your oral health and wellbeing.
