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.

East Office Reviews

  • I've been going to Affiliated Dentists for about three years. My appointments have been on time, and the staff is very friendly. (Kudos to Kathy) They take the time necessary to answer questions that I've had. Keep up the good work!
  • Kathy always does a great job on my teeth and Dr Peles gives great advice every time. As I get older I feel dental health can be harder to maintain, and I know I can count on the compassion and professionalism they show every single visit. Thank you!

West Office Reviews

  • I've been going to Affiliated Dentists for a couple years now, and I couldn't be happier! My implants look fantastic, and all the ladies are always so friendly and helpful! I always tell them I miss the days when my mom would schedule and take me to the dentist and my dad would pay for it 😂. But ... Read More
  • I love Affiliated Dentists. I hadn't been to the dentist in about 5 years or more due to not having insurance, so I was a little nervous when I first went. However, they put me at ease right away, and I look forward to seeing my dentist and dental assistant whenever I do go in.
  • I like Dr. Buddy a lot, she is great with not attaching shame or any feelings of moral failing when a new cavity appears. Not all of the hygienists have attained this skill, but overall I have had few issues. They care about my comfort and are generally quick.
