Practicing Dentistry in South Dakota

South Dakota offers a host of dental practice opportunities in a variety diverse settings including the growing cosmopolitan community of Sioux Falls; the beautiful Black Hills; and of course hundreds of tranquil rural "home town" communities. Because South Dakota 

currently has a disproportionate number of dentists between the ages of 55 and 65 it is expected that, as these dentists begin to retire, new dentists will be needed to replace them. This is particularly true in rural areas of the state and in communities of less than 6,000 people. South Dakota offers a great quality of life and is also a great place to own and operate a small business. To visit with someone about practicing in South Dakota contact the South Dakota Dental Association at (605) 224-9133.

If you are seeking a practice opportunity and would like to list yourself and view applicable opportunities in South Dakota, please register above.
