Practice & Career Opportunities Service

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.

Practice & Career Opportunities Service

To assist dental students with identifying practice opportunities within the state, the South Dakota Dental Association has created an on line Practice & Career Opportunities Service that can assist dentists and dental students who are looking to buy a practice or enter as an associate following graduation. If you are seeking a practice opportunity and would like to list yourself and view applicable opportunities in South Dakota, please register above.

Dentists Enroll in Medicare?
 
Most dental services are not covered by Medicare; therefore, most dentists are not enrolled in Medicare. However, to ensure that patients on Medicare receive the services and supplies ordered for them by their dentist, SDDA members should enroll In Medicare.  Dentists may utilize a simplified process of enrollment in Medicare because the dentist will not be directly billing Medicare. Members should enroll by filling out short form: CMS-855-O and mailing it to South Dakota's Medicare administrative contractor:
