Welcome to the South Dakota Dental Association

The South Dakota Dental Association is the membership organization of dentists and allied dental staff in South Dakota.  The SDDA has more than 450 dentist members and 500 allied dental staff members statewide. Founded in 1883, the SDDA's mission is to promote the art and science of dentistry and the oral health of the public; educate the public on the benefits of quality preventive and restorative dentistry as provided by the entire dental health care team; and be of service to its members regarding practice health and their general welfare.

Smile With PRIDE 
The SDDA is working to improve the oral health of Native Americans living on South Dakota’s Reservations by providing direct care to Native Americans living on reservations. Several successful events have help hundreds  of people living on the Rosebud Reservation, however there continues to be a great need for dental care.  The St. Francis Mission Dental Clinic and the SDDA are seeking more volunteers in order that the Mission Clinic can provide care to patients one week every month. No credentialing is required - volunteers need only a valid license to practice in South Dakota. Volunteers should contact Paul Knecht or Brenda Goeden at the SDDA office by calling 605-224-9133 or email to paul.knecht@sddental or brenda.goeden@sddental.org. We are currently seeking volunteers for:  September 8-12, 2014 and January 12-16, 2015.
