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 nearing retirement, 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.
