Dr. Patrick Donovan

Madison Dentist Dr. Patrick Donovan, DDS

Dr. Patrick Donovan is a partner and family dentist at the Associated Dentists' Madison location. He was drawn to dentistry because of the unique skill set it requires, one that combines the use of good hand-eye coordination with science and medicine. He has a wife and two children, and is an assistant coach on his son's soccer team. Dr. Donovan always prefers to spend his free time with his family, whether they are playing outside, going to movies, or doing homework together at the coffee shop over a chocolate milk.

In his free time Dr. Donovan enjoys jogging, weightlifting, golf and grilling out with friends. Dr. Donovan is also a life-long Packers and Badgers fan — there's a good chance you'll catch him at Lambeau Field, Camp Randall or the Kohl Center a few times a year.
