Dr. Aaron Brooksbank, DDS, MS

Aaron Brooksbank, DDS, MS, was born and raised in Cookeville. He is happy to return to his hometown after several years away, which he spent training in general and specialized dentistry. After graduating with a BS in Chemistry from Tennessee Tech University, Dr. Brooksbank received a Master of Biomedical Sciences from Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, North Carolina. He graduated from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center with his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2020. He then completed a 1-year General Practice Residency at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. In this hospital-based program, he advanced his general dental skills while also focusing on more complex cases involving trauma, implants, and impacted teeth. He was on call for hospital trauma cases and worked extensively on patients with special needs. Dr. Brooksbank conducted research on surface sealants, which he presented at the Hinman Dental Meeting in Atlanta. The results of his research were later published in General Dentistry and Operative Dentistry. Dr. Brooksbank is a member of the Tennessee Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

In his free time, Dr. Brooksbank enjoys lake activities, snow skiing, attempting to play golf, and following the Tennessee Titans. He especially enjoys the time he spends with his wife, Laura, and their silver lab, Nova. Dr. Brooksbank is excited to be back in his hometown. He has watched the historic Westside district grow over the years, and he is happy to be part of this vibrant part of the community.
