DENTIST/OWNER

Dr. Mark Garner

Dr. Mark Garner is the founder and CEO of Orchard Meadows Family Dental & Denture Clinic. Although not a native of Rapid City, he calls it home. Dr. Mark moved here when he was 15 and graduated from Rapid City Central High School in 1993. After high school, he enlisted in the United States Air Force and spent six years serving our country. After his military service, Dr. Mark attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center-College of Dentistry, and in 2006 he graduated with his Doctor of Dental Science (DDS) degree, with high distinction. He was inducted in the national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) — one of only four students in his graduating class.

Dr. Garner strongly believes in giving back to and serving our community. He was instrumental in bringing two charity organizations to Rapid City designed to give free dental services to those less fortunate and without access to care. Dentistry from the Heart (link: https://dentistryfromtheheart.org/) is a day set aside for the less fortunate to receive free dentistry, no questions asked. Freedom Day (link: https://www.freedomdayusa.org/) is specifically designed to serve our underserved Veterans who may not have access to regular dental care. Dr. Mark and his team have also been on mission trips to Costa Rica, providing free dental services to residents in dire need of care.

Dr. Garner is a member of the American Dental Association, the South Dakota Dental Association, the Black Hills District Dental Society, the American Association of Facial Esthetics, the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and the Academy of General Dentistry.

When not making an impact on his patients’ lives at the office, Dr. Mark loves traveling and exploring the Black Hills on foot or on his motorcycle with his wife Lindsey and their eight children.
