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 and the St. Francis Mission have created a partnership that is helping to improve the oral health of the members of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe.  A series of successful events have helped hundreds of people living on the Rosebud Reservation, however there continues to be a great need for dental care.  The SDDA and the Mission are seeking more volunteers to provide care to patients at the Mission's dental clinic. 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: January 12-16; March 23-27; June 22-26; July 20-24 and September 14-18. For more information about the St. Francis Mission Dental Clinic go to: http://sfmdental.com/.
