Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Melissa Obrochta, DMD

    I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a dentist. I loved the artistry of it and as a violinist, the ability to work with my hands. I chose to study in Ft Lauderdale at Nova Southeastern University where I earned my BS in Biology in 2003 and Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2007. After graduation, I was selected for a one year General Practice Residency at Coler Goldwater Specialty Hospital. This program allowed me to provide comprehensive dental treatment to the long term residents of the hospital and afforded me the opportunity to train in hospitals and clinics all throughout New York City.

    DMD

    Dr Vanessa Brennan is excited to join our family here at Gulf Breeze Family Dentistry

    'I have a passion for dentistry and I love what I do.'

    I was born in Barranquilla, Colombia. I moved to Miami, Florida when I was two years old with my family.

    In the last ten years, I worked in both public health and private practice dentistry.  I also taught dental students as faculty for both the University of Florida College of Dentistry and Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health.

    I settled in Pensacola three years ago with my family. We love everything Pensacola has to offer. We love the beach and outdoor water sports. In my free time, I am out on the beach with my two daughters or at one of the many local community events with my husband.
