I started working in the dental field in 2013 and joined Anderson Dental in April 2018 doing Insurance and financial coordinating. I enjoy seeing people happy with their smiles and love that I get to work in a place that helps make that happen.
I grew up on a ranch in between the Black Hills and the Badlands. I have a wonderful husband, Clayton and we enjoy hunting, shooting, hiking, riding horses, four-wheelers and most anything outdoors. We were blessed with a beautiful little girl, Emma in 2018 and look forward to teaching her about this beautiful place we live.
Courtney received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from USD, Vermillion in 2009. She joined the Anderson Dental team in 2010.
Courtney is able to build strong relationships with the patients because she is truly interested in their oral health. She, as well as all the staff, provides gentle dentistry care and the patient is always the top priority.
You may also find Courtney fishing or just enjoying the outdoors with her husband, Jeff. Just spending time with family and friends are one of her personal priorities.
Hi, my name is Kim. I’ve lived in Rapid City 33 years. My husband, David and I moved here after finishing our degrees at USD. I have three children and a grandson on the way!
I have been with Anderson Dental since December 1, 2014. I am blessed to be employed at an office where I can give the patients the time and education they need.
I love living in the Black Hills. It gives us the opportunity to camp without traveling far.
I am a Utah College of Dental Hygiene High Honors graduate where I received a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Science from the University of Latvia. Continuing education is a high priority in my life which has helped me reach my goals. I believe in helping others and I am honored to work with all of my patients.
I was born and raised in Latvia (Europe) and my first language is Latvian. After graduating from the University of Latvia, I moved to South Dakota where I started a new chapter in my life with my husband Adam. We have two wonderful boys and they are finally old enough where we can travel with them and go on some amazing hikes. We appreciate our time together no matter where we are and what we do.
I have been in the dental field for almost 11 years and truly have a passion for it, I strive to help educate my patients and develop a lasting relationship with them.
I was born and raised in California (Ventura) where I met my wonderful husband, Corey Barry, who was born in Sturgis, SD! In 2013 we moved back to South Dakota to be closer to his family, We have two amazing children, Connor – 11, and Kaylee – 2. I enjoy spending time with family and friends as well as my English Bulldogs, Lucy and Lola, when not working you can find me out enjoying the Black Hills with my family.
We all enjoy the great outdoor activities – hiking, skiing, and taking longs walks.
Arica was born and raised in Rapid City, SD. She has been working in the dental field for a little over 4 years and has recently joined the Anderson Dental crew at the front desk.

Arica recently got engaged to her fiancé, Matt, and they will be getting married in the fall of 2020. She has a stepdaughter, Ava who is a 7th grader and two other “fur” children, Sasha (husky) and Kado (malamute) whom she loves to spend time with.

Bio coming soon!
I am originally from Chandler, Arizona but I have lived in Rapid City, South Dakota for 13 years. I have been in the dental field since I’ve graduated high school. I was previously a dental assistant as well as a dental receptionist. I have recently graduated from Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyoming as a Dental Hygienist! I am attentive to the needs of my patients and strive to create a relaxing environment and to ensure their comfort during treatment. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, boating, and anything outdoors!
I am new to Anderson Dental. I went to school in Arizona for Dental Assisting in 2007. I got tired of the heat after 26 years and moved back to South Dakota where I grew up. My Boyfriend Adam and I just bought a home which keeps us pretty busy on the weekends and when we are not working on the house we enjoy riding around town and the hills on his Harley. Together we have 4 kids and 2 adorable dogs.
