About Us

Our experienced dentists have empathy for anxiety and other special circumstances, and because they do, we designed our sleep and hospital dentistry as an alternative to a typical dental visit. We thoroughly explain exactly what dental procedures you are having, why it’s needed, and what to expect from each one. We will always take the time to answer your questions.

Dr. Christopher Dickes


My name is Dr. Christopher Dickes: I graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 2005. Directly following dental school, I served four years in the U.S Navy onboard the aircraft carrier, USS Ronald Reagan, CVN 76. I was honorably discharged in 2009 and immediately began practicing dentistry in the metropolitan area of Dayton, OH while my wife was completing her medical school training. After spending two years in Dayton, my wife and I moved back to our home state of South Dakota where I worked for four years serving patients in South Dakota’s prison and its human services center. From there, I started my own private practice, which includes providing dental care in a hospital setting for those who struggle with conventional dental care. With the help and support of my family, staff, and dental health partners, I have been able to expand my services to Yankton, Sioux Falls, and the Huron area.

Finding out if you’re a candidate for hospital and sleep dentistry is as easy as visiting one of our general dentistry practices. We have several locations in hometowns spanning eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota. The dentist in one of our local practices will evaluate your needs and, if you are a fit for sleep dentistry, they will refer you to Dr. Dickes and Premier Hospital & Sleep Dentistry of South Dakota.
