Rapid City is a vibrant city that boasts a wide range of amenities. It is often known as “The City of Presidents” due to its proximity to the iconic statues that make up Mount Rushmore, and it’s a great place for families looking for a four-season destination with sun and snow activities in equal measure.

It is also home to a number of attractions that you’ll definitely want to experience, from Art Alley and Dinosaur Park to Chapel in the Hills and Storybook Island. You can even take a hike through Badlands National Park, a site that features sandstone peaks and valleys formed by erosion. Click here.

The economy of Rapid City is diverse. It has a significant manufacturing industry, which includes a Portland cement plant (constructed and owned by the State of South Dakota) and several other heavy and medium industrial businesses. Its tourism industry is also growing, and it has become an important hub for attracting tourists to the Black Hills.

As a city, Rapid City has a thriving arts scene with a variety of museums and galleries to visit. One such museum is the Journey Museum, which houses a range of exhibits on the local history and geology of the area.

In addition, the city is home to Reptile Gardens, a wildlife zoo that showcases the most popular species in South Dakota. Other family-friendly places to visit include Bear Country USA, Fort Hays Old West Town, Storybook Island, and the Dahl Art Gallery.

The staff is incredibly warm and welcoming. (The ladies at the front desk are absolutely wonderful!) The gal (I was so nervous I totally forgot her name) that helped during my procedures is honestly an angel! They squeezed me in late on a Friday afternoon, when most offices were already closed, for a dental emergency. They walked me through everything that would happen, provided options and did an amazing job fixing my tooth. It's obvious that Dr. K and her staff care about you, your dental health and your expierence at their office. I can not recommend them enough. Hands down best dentist office in Rapid City. Thank you guys soooo much!!! (I should add I have extreme dental anxiety, I'm talking cry like a baby all day, break my nails anxiety. They worked with me so well, were so patient and kind. If you hate the dentist, I bet Dr. Kennedy and staff will change your mind!)

I have been coming here for years and in my opinion this clinic has top rate doctors and staff. It is easy to schedule appointments. Their billing for services is clearly explained and their estimates for insurance and patient portions has been very accurate. The staff makes the patient care experience very relaxed, light hearted, and they all seem to enjoy a good sense of humor. Best of all my young kids love this place and actually enjoy coming in for cleanings and regular care. Kids loving the dentist should tell you everything you need to know!

This is my place of employment. I'm writing a review because I want our patients to know that our kindness and caring nature doesn't just stop after our patients leave out the door every day. The staff is one in a million, and we all thrive to care and help one another and support each other in and out of the office. Dr. Sewell and Dr. Kennedy are fantastic people, and doctors, clinically and personally. If you're looking to find an amazing dentist, that is still kind, caring and considerate look no further. We would be honored to have you as our patient!
