Dr Alyssa Brooks
Born and raised in Melbourne, Dr Alyssa Brooks completed her undergraduate dental training at the University of Melbourne. Upon graduation, she moved to the Victorian country town of Shepparton to work in the public dental service. Her interest in the management of pre-cooperative and behaviourally challenging children continued to grow as she worked in suburban and semi-rural private practice. This inspired Alyssa to return to the University of Melbourne to complete postgraduate specialist training in paediatric dentistry.
Alyssa loves the challenge of making dental visits a positive experience for all her child patients. She is passionate about all facets of paediatric dentistry, with a particular interest in the management of anxious and special needs children. She has worked in multidisciplinary teams at the Royal Children’s Hospital and the Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne. Alyssa keeps up to date through regularly attending professional development courses and conferences. She is an active member of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Paediatric Dentistry (ANZSPD), Australasian Academy of Paediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and Australian Dental Association (ADA).
When not at work, Alyssa loves to get out in nature, spoil her dogs and bake (followed by brushing her teeth of course!).
