About Dental Health Associates of Madison Dental Offices

How It All Began

In 1969, a group of five dentists, led by Drs. Daro A. Buchanan and Richard O'Brien, formed Dental Health Associates of Madison (DHA). Both dentists were single practitioners for 15 years, but saw the need for a complete range of services at a single location. Since DHA's inception in the late 1960's, the concept of dentists joining together has provided many benefits for both the patients and the practitioners. As a group, our dentists recognize that peer review and shared consultation, as well as a comprehensive approach to care, assure high quality dental care. So while many things have changed over the years, the basic premise at DHA remains the same. DHA strives to give the best possible dental health care to our patients.

Where We Are Today

We now have almost 300 employees, 35 dentists, and 7 clinic locations. We have grown from only performing general dentistry to also having three specialties-orthodontics, periodontics, and endodontics. Our seven locations reflect the geographic distribution of our patients in and around the Madison area.

Mission Statement

Dental Health Associates of Madison will be the leader in Dane County in providing compassionate dental care of the highest quality by maintaining clean, comfortable, well-equipped clinics located in areas convenient to the patients and staffed by highly trained and dedicated professionals.
