Dr. Michael Krump – Doctor of Dental Surgery

I love living and practicing in Rapid City. It is a beautiful place to live and a terrific place to raise a family. I have 3 children, and we are all very active. It seems we are always on the go with school and sporting events like baseball, football, basketball, and track and field. In the Summer you will find us down at the Canyon Lake Little League fields and ASA softball fields. We also try to sneak in a camping trip or two during the Summer. I enjoy each day in the Black Hills and consider myself lucky to call our residents both patients and friends.

My education began in 1985 at the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1989. I concurrently attended the North Dakota State School of Respiratory Care and became a Certified Respiratory Care Practitioner in 1989 and a Registered Respiratory Care Practitioner in 1990. I spent 2 years at North Dakota State University studying Philosophy and Classical Languages from 1989-1990.

I began my medical work at St. Luke’s Hospital in Fargo, ND. While there, I practiced in the Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units until 1991, and then transferred to the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory. There I assisted Cardiologists with angioplasties and the placement of stents in the heart. It was fascinating work, but I was drawn to the dental field when I discovered the wide variety of procedures dentists perform and the relationships they have with their patients. In 1996, I decided to enter dental school at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. I graduated from there with a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 2000 and moved to Rapid City that June.

We all need a healthcare advocate who has our best interests at heart. My practice strives to communicate that with every interaction. Our staff does an exceptional job of providing patients with the information and guidance they need to make informed decisions about their care and choices. Knowing that our patients feel comfortable and cared for is a priority at Downtown Dental, equaled only by our commitment to the highest level of dental expertise.








Deanna – Office Manager

I love being a part of the dental world and all that it involves. Meeting new people daily and helping to make their dental experience a positive one, is what makes me happy! In my spare time, I love making memories with my family, spending time with my friends, and hiking and kayaking in the Black Hills.

Living, raising our family, and working in the beautiful Black Hills with all four seasons has been a “bonus” for this “Dakota” girl. Although my training was at USD and my license is for SD, I have been blessed to work in Nebraska, Romania, and Honduras. It is a joy to have a small part in a persons smile and self esteem. When I am not working, dogs, crafts, and coaching teens in Bible quiz takes up my time!






Jill - Dental Assistant

I was born and raised an East River South Dakota farm girl and to this I contribute my love for animals. I married my husband 40 years ago and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren.

Directly after graduating high school, I completed my Dental Assisting degree from Lake Area Tech in addition to obtaining my South Dakota Expanded Functions and Radiology license. Truly, I have a love and passion for my job and the people I get to meet.

About Us

Dentist, Dr. Michael Krump, along with the staff at the Rapid City Downtown Dental Office, strive to provide all patients with the highest quality of dental services available. With state-of-the-art equipment, highly qualified staff, friendly faces, and comforts like radio and televisions, your experience with Downtown Dental Services will be positive from start to finish.

Our practice believes in whole-person health; to us, you are more than a set of teeth! We work closely with our patients to gain a complete picture of their health. We want to know more than how often you brush your teeth—we want to know what your dental health means to you and how we can help meet your wellness needs. Our goal is to educate our patients on how dental and oral health contributes to your individual picture of overall well-being, as many people are not aware of the far-reaching effects that oral health has on your body. We aim to start a conversation with each patient about the importance of good oral hygiene, along the best practices for each person’s lifestyle. We believe in the power of information and share our knowledge and guidance with each and every patient.

Our relationship philosophy is to involve our patients in their care as much as possible. This goes beyond teaching them the skills needed to maintain dental health at home. It means that in every step of our care, from X-rays to dental records, we keep you as informed as possible. We begin your treatment with a comprehensive exam which addresses both your concerns and ones that we may have. After the initial exam, we create a tailored treatment plan based on your needs and goals. We will review your treatments thoroughly—from the procedures and after-care to insurance coverage and payment plans. No more leaving your dentist’s chair with less plaque but more questions.

We’re committed to world-class family and cosmetic dentistry services that are suitable for your whole family. We’re here to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums throughout your lifetime and create beautiful smiles. Quality dental care, excellent service and patient comfort are our top priorities. We take great satisfaction in providing personal care for each patient we treat, as we understand that everyone has different needs and wants. At Downtown Dental Services, we’ll help you find your way to optimum oral health.
