Dr. Charlene Brown

Meet .

Dr. Charlene R. Brown, DDS is a native New Orleanian but calls Atlanta, Georgia home. A proud Florida A&M “Rattler” and alum, Dr. Brown graduated with a Bachelor of Science and Master of Business Administration in 2003. Prior to obtaining her doctorate, Dr. Brown was a successful business management consultant working for top Fortune 500 consulting firms, such as Accenture and Deloitte Consulting, LLC. However, in 2009, she decided to answer a deeper calling and pursue her dream of becoming a General Dentist. After finishing the necessary coursework, Dr. Brown attended Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in New Orleans, Louisiana where she earned her Doctorate in Dental Surgery in May of 2015. Never satisfied with being average, Dr. Brown excelled at LSU and was awarded the “Outstanding Student Award” by Dental Lifeline Network’s Brian D. Stone. Charlene was also selected as LSU’s 2015 representative for the American Dental Education Association pre-dental brochure.

Giving Back

Dr. Brown has always prioritized giving back to her community and “paying it forward.” For as long as she can recall, Dr. Brown has always felt a strong sense of duty to serve her community. One of her favorite quotes is by renowned author Maya Angelou, “…you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.” Prior to dental school, Dr. Brown spent over 100 hours volunteering at both Good Samaritan health clinic and Ben Massell Dental Clinic in Atlanta, GA. At these clinics, she worked with underserved individuals who had limited or no access to dental health care. Because of her many community service efforts, Dr. Brown earned The American Association of Public Health Dentistry’s Community Outreach award in 2015. Additionally, Dr. Brown has been involved with the Thomas P. Hinman society, and served as a panelist for the annual “Women in Dentistry” session and as both a participant and contributor to Georgia’s “Diversity in Dentistry” group, of which she has been involved since 2009.

CORONAVIRUS HEALTH UPDATE

Our dear patients,

We hope that this message reaches you well and in good spirits during this trying time. As this global pandemic continues to run its course, we sincerely hope that you are doing your best to take care of yourself physically and mentally. While we are unable to operate business as usual, we are still here for you in cases of emergency. If you find that you are experiencing dental pain, tooth fracture, uncontrolled oral bleeding, and/or extreme sensitivity, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 404-549-2650. We are available for virtual consults or will get you scheduled to come into the office.

Unfortunately, we will be operating in this limited fashion for an uncertain amount of time and will be sure to notify you once it is safe to continue non-emergency treatment. Here, at Brookhaven Dental Group, we have always practiced CDC and OSHA standards of infection and will continue to operate only under their direction.

In the spirit of a line from a poem that China sent to Italy, “We are all waves from the same sea.” Meaning that no matter where you are or how this pandemic may be affecting you, we’re all in it together. The ebb and flow of life right now is not what we’re used to but staying in place is necessary to get us to our new normal quicker.

Thank you to each one of you for being such a vital part of the reason why BDG just celebrated 2 years of being in practice. We’re here when you need us and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Be well,
Dr. Brown
