About Us
Dr. Brooks Team at the Ice Cream Social 2017

As an oral surgery office, we specialize in the comfortable removal of teeth, in performing intraoral biopsies and in placement of dental implants. The mission of Dr. Brooks' practice is to provide outstanding, ethical and quality oral surgical care.

Comfortable Care

In Dr. Brooks’ office, local anesthesia and intravenous (IV) conscious sedation are commonly administered to make patients of all ages feel comfortable and relaxed. Patients are closely monitored by certified oral surgical assistants and sophisticated nGenuity Criticare Scholar™ monitors. As of 2011, these are the safest patient monitors on the market.

To help reduce discomfort with local anesthesia, Dr. Brooks uses the Wand® injection device in conjunction with flavored topical anesthetics, EMLA™ topical anesthetic cream, ethyl chloride spray and hypoallergenic tape. Dr. Brooks’ office is inspected and permitted by the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners.

Dr. Amy Brooks is an active member in the North Carolina Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Western Piedmont Dental Association, American Dental Association, American Medical Association and the First District Dental Society.

Training to become an oral surgeon includes a significant amount of time and experience to the understanding and administration of local anesthesia, conscious sedation and general anesthesia. The office maintains an automated external defibrillator (AED) for the safety of the nearby public and patients.
