History of the Practice

Dr. Donald Good founded the practice in March of 1971 after completing a general dentistry residency at the Veterans Administration in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  He began with three dental chairs in the basement of First National Bank in downtown Ames while also practicing in Madrid, Iowa.  As his Ames practice grew he sold the Madrid office and added two more chairs to the office in Ames.  During this time he not only established himself as a highly esteemed restorative dentist, but also enjoyed the respect of his staff and patients.

In 2009, Dr. Brandon Patten joined the team as an associate dentist after serving four years active duty in the United States Navy.  Dr. Patten’s desire for an excellent clinical mentor and Dr. Good’s desire to pass on clinical pearls and years of wisdom and experience made them a great match.  In 2011, Dr. Patten purchased the practice and Dr. Good continues to care for patients as well.

By 2014, the practice had outgrown the 5 operatory space and relocated to the current location on University Boulevard in South Ames.  We would love the opportunity to give you a tour with your initial visit to our office.
