Rapid City SD – The Gateway to the Black Hills
As the second-largest city in South Dakota, Rapid City is an important destination for both tourists and locals. It is the county seat of Pennington County, situated at the eastern edge of the Black Hills. The name “Rapid City” derives from Rapid Creek, which flows through the center of the city. The city is a popular tourist destination, particularly for those who wish to visit Mount Rushmore National Memorial and the Crazy Horse Memorial in the nearby Black Hills.

Homelessness & Drug Addiction
The city is home to a large homeless population. According to the 2022 state census, Native Americans make up nearly 70% of the city’s homeless, with many living on the streets or in tents. Several local and state agencies have taken a more active role in helping people who are homeless. One new frontier is “co-response” efforts, where street outreach teams work with individuals who are homeless and connect them to social services and other resources when they are ready.

Public Safety
Rapid City police officers patrol the city’s downtown area and other key areas throughout the day. In addition, the Rapid City Fire Department provides emergency medical services to the community. The RCFD is a member of the South Dakota Statewide Association of EMS, and its ambulances are available to respond to any emergency in the city or the surrounding area.

Tourism and Business
Rapid City is a center for business in the state, with companies in the construction, manufacturing, finance, agriculture, retail, transportation and healthcare industries all present here. Its location at the intersection of Interstate 90 and Interstate 87 allows it to serve as a major stop for travelers in the region.

The region is known for its rich heritage and culture, as well as its scenic beauty, and it offers a wide variety of recreational activities to visitors. Whether it’s hiking, biking, skiing, golfing or shopping, there is something for everyone in the region.

Dinosaur Park, which sits high above the city and features statues of dinosaurs, is a must-see for visitors looking to take in the scenery. The park is also a good place to get a glimpse at the Badlands, a national monument that’s located in the neighboring Black Hills.

Guests can also enjoy the historic Hotel Alex Johnson, where nods to Native American culture are evident in the lobby and restaurant. There are a handful of other hotels in the area to choose from, including Comfort Inn and Best Western Rapid City.

Art Alley, a pedestrian walkway lined with sculptures of local artists, is another popular tourist attraction in Rapid City. The city is also home to Storybook Island, Chapel in the Hills, and Main Street Square, which is the city’s main shopping and entertainment district.

If you’re interested in the city’s cultural past, you’ll want to check out a number of museums. The Black Hills Institute of Geological Research has a museum that houses fossils and other prehistoric artifacts from the area.

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!
