Practice History

Our practice was founded by Dr. Robert L. Machen over 20 years ago and was originally located on Ben White by St. David’s hospital. As the practice grew rapidly due to Dr. Machen’s great reputation for patient care, the practice eventually moved to the current location nearly 10 years ago.

Dr. Machen’s practice has been entrenched in the South Austin dental community as being the best periodontal practice in the area from Dripping Springs to Bastrop, and from San Marcos to the river.

After decades of service to the dental community and to the patients of this area, Dr. Machen decided it was time to move on to other endeavors. After an intensive search, Dr. Machen transferred his practice to the care of Dr. Ha. Sharing the same education and training, philosophy, and standard of patient care, Dr. Machen had no hesitation in handing over the care of all his patients to Dr. Ha in 2018.
