How to Find Our Office
Don’t already know where we are? We can help with that. Finding your way to Rushmore Dental in Rapid City is easy with these nearby landmarks as your guide. Our dental practice is conveniently located to ensure your journey is smooth and stress-free.
If you’re coming from west of Canyon Lake Park, just keep heading northeast up Jackson Blvd. You’ll pass the Meadowbrook Golf Course and Jackson Park. Keep going until you see the Sinclair and Black Hills tire, then turn right onto Mountain View Rd. We’re in the second business park on the left, and just follow the signs to us from there!
Maybe you’re coming from the direction of Uptown Rapid Mall. You can take the I-90 and the Theodore Roosevelt Expressway if you prefer — just turn right when you reach Main Street, then turn right onto Jackson Blvd, then take another left onto Mountain View Rd.
If you’d rather drive through town, it’ll only take a minute longer. Head south from the mall on Maple St, then turn right at the fire station onto Anamosa St. Take a left onto Haines Ave and follow it around a couple of bends to Omaha St. Turn right onto Omaha St, then left onto Mountain View Rd. This might be confusing because it’s not the same Mountain View Rd. as the one we’re on, so take that to Jackson Blvd, turn right, and then turn left onto our Mountain View Rd. (Sorry, we know it’s weird.)
If you’re bringing your teen for a school-day appointment from Central High School, take Omaha St. west to Cross St., then turn left. Turn right onto Main St. and left on Jackson Blvd. Take another left at Mountain View Rd.
Whether you’re coming from the Uptown Rapid, Central High School, Canyon Lake Park, or any other nearby landmarks, following these simple directions will lead you directly to us. Our team is excited to provide you with top-notch dental care in a convenient and easily accessible location.
