Jessica Melby, DDS

As a General Dentist, Dr. Jessica Melby loves watching science, technology and art intersect each day inside the mouth. She enjoys working with her hands to restore teeth to the form and function that nature intended. Most of all, Dr. Melby loves getting to know so many different types of people and learning new things from her patients. Dr. Melby believes that forming relationships and providing the education for her patients to participate actively in their own dental care are what make dentistry such a enjoyable career.

Off the job, Dr. Melby enjoys spending time with her husband, three children and dog. She enjoys walks to the park, art projects of any kind and trying not to burn her kitchen down while replicating recipes from food blogs.

Patient Reviews

I am extremely happy with my care at Dental Health Associates on Old Sauk. Dr. Melby and her hygienists provide an exceptionally comfortable visit experience! - S. G.

My experience with DHA has always been great! I recently had a tooth capped by Dr Melby and she did a great job of matching the color and communicating the process. I drive 80 miles one way just to go to DHA because the staff is so good. My hygienist is always professional and has a great positive attitude which is an indication she loves her job. i have recommended DHA Old Sauk to all my co-workers. - Thomas L.

Dr. Melby and her staff are very skilled and instill a sense of extreme confidence in their work. I thank them for their dedication to their profession! - Mark and Theresa W.

Dr. Melby did an outstanding job with my crown work--I felt restored to normal again!! - Kathleen P.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dental Health Associates. I first saw Dr. Melby for a tooth extraction and implant, and was so happy with the experience and the end result. Everyone in the office is so friendly and accommodating, especially the hygienists Taylor and Ashley, who managed to put a lifelong dental-phobic like myself at ease. Dr. Melby is a true artist and amazing at what she does. I would definitely recommended Dental Health Associates to anyone in the Madison area. - Meghan S.

It is rare that I ever have a cavity or need any dental interventions beyond the usual cleaning (I brush twice per day), but I have had positive experiences during my visits to DHA. My dentist, Dr. Melby, is friendly and competent. I never get the impression that she is trying to do more tests or procedures just to take my money (like some other dentists I have been to). - John H.

I have been getting my teeth cleaned twice a year at the Gammon road clinic for the last 20+ years. My hygenist ,Taylor, has a wonderful personality and does a great job keeping my teeth clean. My dentist, Dr. Melby, is very personable as well. All said, it's a great place to have your teeth taken care of! - Hans Daas View All Dentists
