D'Jonna Sewell, DDS
Dr. D’Jonna Sewell has been practicing dentistry in Rapid City for nearly 30 years. She went to Sturgis High School, SD State University (degree in Microbiology) and the University of MN School of Dentistry. Over the years she has built wonderful relationships with her patients and loves making smiles possible.
Her passion towards dentistry has taken her around the world providing care in Jamaica, Mexico, Ghana, Honduras, Costa Rica and India. She provides dental care to children at Elida Orphanage in India each year and continues to help feed, educate and fund medical care for the poor, widows and orphans.
Working with high school girls at her church is an area Dr. Sewell enjoys (they keep her young!). She plays the keyboard and works with the youth and adult worship ministry. She also serves as vice chair of the Board of Directors.
Dr. Sewell is pleased to welcome Dr. Kennedy to the practice in 2016 to provide continued care to our patients. This allows her to spend time with her husband, children and her first grandchild.
