Arnold H. Brokstein, DDS
Dr. Arnold H. Brokstein graduated from the State University of Buffalo in 1969 after attending Brooklyn College in New York City. He has received advanced training in conscious sedation and Invisalign®, and regularly furthers his learning through continuing education courses so that he can continue to offer his patients the best possible dental care. Dr. Brokstein is a member of the ADA and the Academy of General Dentistry. He has served the communities of Oakland, CA, for over 30 years.

His goal as a dentist is to help patients in every way to receive excellent dental care and maintain long-term health. He achieves this goal in and out of the office, as he volunteers with the Direct Relief Foundation and Los Médicos Voladores (the Flying Doctors) in Haiti, Guatemala, Mexico, and Nicaragua—a practice he has continued for over 30 years.

In addition to his career in dentistry, Dr. Brokstein is the president of the Montclair Business Association and has coached youth soccer for many years. He has been married for over 50 years, and his wife is a CPA and the former president of the California Society of CPAs and Integra International, a group of CPA firms. Their son is a computer programmer for the University of California Human Genome Project, and their daughter is currently a CPA.
