Who Is Dr. Dylan Donnelly?
Having been in love with the city and its surroundings, Dr. Dylan Donnelly felt very fortunate to be able to not only work here as a dentist but raise a family in Madison as well. We recently asked Dr. Donnelly to tell us more about himself and what he does when not practicing dentistry.
A Little About Dr. Donnelly
“I completed my undergrad work and dental school at the University of Iowa where I was lucky to meet my wife Krista. After living in Iowa City for over ten years, I do have to confess, I became a huge Iowa Hawkeye fan! In 2011 my wife and I moved back to Madison, which is when I started practicing as a dentist at Madison Family Dental Associates.
Although Krista is a top-notch nurse, she currently stays home with our three children. We have two daughters, Reese and Ellie, and one son, Deacon. We also have a highly energetic Boxer dog named Lucy.”
At Madison Family Dental Associates
“I absolutely love my job as a dentist at MFDA! I feel so lucky every day to be able to do what I do. My dad practiced dentistry here in Madison as well and I have always looked up to him and wanted to follow in his career footsteps. I have witnessed for years how he has respected and earned the trust of his patients and I now try to do the same for mine.
Another thing I learned from him was how to use my humor as a way to make my patients feel comfortable in the chair! I love all aspects of general dentistry and try to learn more every day so that I can always provide the best possible dental experience for my patients.”
In His Free Time
“I like to call us a ‘water family.’ When I’m not spending my time as a dentist, you can find me with my entire family either at High Point Pool, fishing up north Wisconsin, or water skiing on the mighty Mississippi during the summer. We love to be outside as a family and also plan short trips to Chicago, Milwaukee, and Iowa City. Our daughter Reese plays soccer, takes piano lessons, and sings in the children’s choir at Saint Lukes Lutheran Church in Middleton. Ellie does gymnastics, and Deacon pretty much just gets into trouble!
In addition to being a dentist, I try to stay as active as I can with my wife. We try to do at least a couple of running races or triathlons every year. We are pretty competitive when it comes to the Bix 7 race in the Quad Cities every summer. I usually beat her (even though she has been pregnant for most of my wins), but I say a win is a win!”
