About Us


Dr. Brabston

If Dr. Gene Brabston could do it all over again, he would still be a dentist. He’s passionate about providing painless, stress-free dental care for the whole family, and is most proud of the lifelong relationships that he has established with his patients throughout his 40-year tenure.

When he was younger, a trampoline accident landed Dr. Brabston in a dental office where he received emergency care. After the emergency, he returned to the dentist for multiple follow-up visits, and the treatment he received was always friendly and painless. The compassionate care he received during and after his dental emergency was enough to spark Dr. Brabston’s passion for dentistry.

Dr. Brabston received his DMD at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry and completed his General Practice Residency at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. He has also obtained his Masters of the Academy of General Dentistry. A general dentist who has earned the designation “Master” of the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD) has completed a structured and demanding set of requirements involving all the dental disciplines. A Master has studied 16 disciplines in dentistry, such as periodontics, orthodontics and implants. When a dentist has achieved the Mastership Award, patients can be assured that their dentist is dedicated to providing the finest care in general dentistry.

Office Manager

Sandie joined the team as Office Manager in 1995. She loves the meet and greet part of the job. Patients are like family and her goal is to make them feel as comfortable as possible. She and her husband get away on weekend trips, and enjoy music, dancing and reading. But the true joy of her life are her grandchildren.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Despite being the newest addition to the team, Ashleigh has 20 years of experience in dentistry. Her favorite part of the job is the people that she gets to meet, treat and work with. Teaching patients how to take better care of their teeth and mouth, and having a positive effect on their overall health and confidence, is very rewarding. Originally from North Alabama, she’s lived in Fairhope for a little over a year with her husband and three children. And when she’s not at work, she enjoys cooking and genealogy research.


Certified Dental Assistant

Jennifer has been a member of the team since 1983, and also works as a part-time instructor for a dental assisting program at a local college. She has always found gratification in helping patients feel at ease and comfortable during their procedures – because at Living Oaks Dental, patients are part of the family. She enjoys spending time with her two sons and family, along with spoiling her dog and cat. When she has time, she curls up with a good book or movie, and likes shopping best of all.


Registered Dental Hygienist

After 30 years Susie still finds Dental Hygiene to be a rewarding career. She has been with the team since 2008. She loves working with the patients on their dental concerns and homecare issues, giving them a healthy smile throughout their lives. In her spare time, Susie enjoys yoga and bike riding. She also enjoys going to the beach with her husband David and sons Jack and Sam.
