About Dental Health Associates of Madison
With a robust history dating back to 1969, DHA is a leader in the community as a widely respected dental provider. You can be a vital part of our tradition of excellence. In 1969, a group of five dentists, led by Drs. Daro A. Buchanan and Richard O'Brien, formed Dental Health Associates of Madison, Ltd. (DHA). Both dentists had been single practitioners for 15 years, but saw the need for a unified, complete range of services at a single location. Since DHA's inception as a traditional group dental practice in the late 1960's the concept of a group of dentists joining together provides many benefits for both the patients and the practitioners. As a group, their goal is to provide a comprehensive approach to dental care for their patients. They also realize the benefit of peer review and shared consultation to assure high quality dental care. So while some things have changed over the years, the basic premise remains the same: to provide the best possible dental health care to our patients. We have grown over the years from only performing general dentistry to having specialties--periodontics, endodontics and orthodontics. We have grown from 5 to 33 dentists with auxiliary staffing o...f over 275. We have seven locations that reflect the geographic distribution of our patients in and around the Madison area
