“We couldn’t be more excited or impressed by our patients’ support in being named Best Dental Practice in Madison,” said Dr. Brian Sweeney, DDS, vice president of Dental Health Associates of Madison. “For over 50 years we have provided quality patient-centered care to the Madison community, and we pride ourselves on their beautiful and healthy smiles.”

When asked what makes Dental Health Associates stand out as dental leaders, he said, “We focus on the needs of each individual. We truly personalize care to reflect the patients’ needs and values, to make them as comfortable as possible and to communicate with them in a nonjudgmental way.”
Dental Health Associates provides patients with treatment options that range from general dentistry to orthodontics, periodontics and endodontics.
With 300 employees, 35 providers and seven locations throughout Madison, the company is proud to be a locally owned and managed dental practice. Founded in 1969 by a group of dentists who saw the need for a complete range of services at one site. The company’s expertise is grounded in the practices of peer review and shared consultations.
While some people may still feel a twinge of anxiety about a visit to the dentist, newer technology, user-friendly procedures, and advanced treatment approaches have continued to help lower the fear of many.
In the last 10 years, Sweeney said, great strides have been made in terms of making dental visits less scary. The office environments are now more open, modern and sleek. The use of digital technology, better dental equipment, and minimally invasive dentistry have helped paved a new image for the future of dentistry. For those who still feel anxious about having dental procedures, Sweeney said sedation dentistry is always an option.
Advancements in treatment options have also made sitting in the chair more appealing. “With digital dentistry, we have experienced evolution in care these last few years and the patients are definitely the beneficiaries of it. The ongoing development of new dental materials and procedures has helped to restore and retain a patients’ oral health for a lifetime.” Crowns can be done with digital scanning, eliminating messy mixtures and a mouthful of material.  Digital x-rays drastically improve the quality of the image while being safer for the patient than the old film x-rays. Dental implants have also revolutionized the dental industry and allow us to replace missing teeth.
As digital dentistry continues to evolve and provide advanced solutions to improve the patient experience, it is also decreasing the frequency and cost of dental treatments. “Dental IQ among patients is very high right now. A lot of treatment revolves around preventative care, which helps lower dental costs and eliminate problems, or at least minimize them,” Sweeney said.
Not only does Dental Health Associates provide top-notch care and services, they also pride themselves on staying actively involved in the Madison area and surrounding communities. “Winning this award isn’t just about the dental care and treatments that we offer,” Sweeney said, “It is also about the investment in our patients’ and community who voted for us as the Best Dental Practice in Madison. Thank you Madison.”
