bud I have so much to say to you. First thing is you were my mentor. you aways answered the phone when I called and had a problem. I am truly going to miss calling you when I need advice. you always told me how to do it and even sometimes when I didn’t agree with you. I didn’t do what you said. but never told me I told you so, all you said is what did you learn from this? I am going to miss you bud love you and we will talk again. Save me a spot at the bar with the pretty girls!!!!!!!

Norma, Brenda, Steve and Family, Earl and I are so very sorry to hear about Dr. Brooks and we love you all and are sending our prayers and hugs. You were all so blessed to have each other and all of his patients were blessed to have him as their dentist. Your entire family is truly amazing. He was a wonderful man – he loved his patients, loved being a dentist and was so good at it – and it always showed. Thank you for his military service in the United States Air Force and for his compassion in helping others that were less fortunate. Earl and I will never forget him – he was truly one of a kind! God bless you all.

Dr. Brooks passing makes me so sad for his family. I hated going to the dentist until I met Dr Brooks. He made dental visits so much easier. He was always so kind, funny, and patient with me. I was just a patient who thought highly of him, and missed him terribly when he left the practice. I can only imagine the loss his family must be feeling. My condolences to them all.

I went to Dr Brooks for a 2nd opinion regarding new bridgework needed. Dr Brooks said I didn’t need it, and he was right. We shared stories about Key West, since I lived there before moving to Vero Beach. Normally, going to the dentist is not a pleasant experience, Dr Brooks changed that experience!
