Dr. Christopher Dickes, Dentist

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.

Dr. Hilary Haley, Dentist

For more than 20 years, I have provided my patients with exceptional comprehensive and cosmetic dental care. I earned both my Bachelor of Science in Biology and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery degrees from the University of Minnesota. Shortly after graduating, I moved back to my hometown of Mitchell, SD.

I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry and strive to evolve with the ever-changing dynamics of the field. From the procedures to the people, I love the variety each day brings!

Outside of work, I have my hands (and my schedule!) full chasing three busy teenagers. I also enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, spending time with family and friends, and reading about architecture and design.
