Our History

We've been around a while

Affiliated Dentists team

Today Affiliated Dentists Madison is a thriving practice operating out of two offices equipped with the latest in state-of-the-art technology and with a full complement of staff ready to offer a vast array of dental services. But, like most small businesses we emerged from more humble beginnings.

Dr. John Busby graduated from dental school in 1978 along with Dr. Wipperfurth and Dr. Wierwill. Those two started their own practices in Madison, but Dr. John Busby served in the military until 1983. Once out, Dr. John Busby started a new practice with Dr. Wipperfurth. Later he started the office known as Midvale Regent Dental Associates in Madison with Dr. McGary. Finally in 1997, all offices merged into one, forming what we now know as Affiliated Dentists.

Initially, we only had one office, our location off of River Place by Monona. However, our practice was growing fast, so in an effort to meet demand in 2003 we built our West office on Odana Road. That same year Dr. Miller graduated dental school and and we were pleased to welcome her to the team.

The practice continues to grow, and through the years we’ve continued to welcome new dentists to our team. Dr. Mark Gustavson joined in 2007, Dr. Laura Peles in 2009. Dr. Maggie Smith in 2012. Dr. Brian Porter joined in 2013 and, most recently, Dr. Susie Dendinger joined in 2017.

And while our team has grown, we remain informed by the notion that our success is measured by the experiences of each of our patients. We strive to offer our patients the best dental care but we also know how much it means to them that we also remember their name.
