Aberdeen Dental Clinic Adds Oral Surgeon Trained in IV and Oral Sedation

ABERDEEN, SD--(Marketwired - September 30, 2014) - Dr. Darold Opp, regarded as one of Aberdeen's best cosmetic and pediatric dentists, recently added an associate who can provide patients oral surgery and sedation dentistry.

Dr. Bo Crofoot moved from Idaho to Aberdeen earlier this month to join the highly trained and professional team at The Center for Advanced Dentistry. Dr. Crofoot is the first general dentist in the history of Aberdeen, a town of about 26,000 residents, to render both oral and IV sedation. Sedation dentistry is used for patients with dental surgery needs or for patients who have a fear of dentists.

Dr. Opp said adding Dr. Crofoot to his practice allows The Center for Advanced Dentistry to provide in-office comprehensive services in a more timely fashion. Before Dr. Crofoot came to Aberdeen, Dr. Opp was referring patients to an oral surgeon's office where the wait was four to six weeks.

"I have been looking for a dentist with sedation skills for the past three years," said Dr. Opp, who provides full dental implants. "Aberdeen patients deserve having someone here locally who can meet their needs."

Dr. Opp is the founder of the annual event "Miles of Smiles" that brings a fun-filled day to children across the region and benefits the Make-A-Wish foundation of South Dakota. The day includes costumed children's characters, games and a chance to meet Dr. Opp. The event, now called "Smile Palooza," has expanded throughout the region, allowing Dr. Opp to entertain and promote oral health to more than 25,000 visitors since 2008. As the event's founder, Dr. Opp also offers "Smile Palooza" manuals and planning packages to dentists in the region.

The Center for Advanced Dentistry is a comprehensive cosmetic dental clinic that offers Aberdeen low cost dental implants, full mouth restoration, All On Four dental implants, crowns and bridges, periodontal surgery, sedation dentistry and pediatric dentistry. Dr. Opp encourages families to bring their children for regular checkups and offers free exams for new patients ages 1-3. He also provides low-cost checkups and exams for children 4 and older.

Dr. Opp has been recognized for bringing quality dentistry to children in the Aberdeen community. He has received the Hometown Hero Award, and is the only dentist to have won the ABBY Award, which is given to the Aberdeen business that best demonstrates community involvement.  

Dr. Opp attended Northern State University in Aberdeen, where he earned a bachelor's degree. He received his dental degree from the University of Nebraska. Dr. Opp served in the United States Navy for eight years as a dental assistant and dental hygienist before establishing his Aberdeen dental practice 30 years ago. He holds memberships with the Northern District Dental Association, American Dental Association and South Dakota Dental Association and participates in the Les Curtis Dental Study Club. Dr. Opp also is a nationally accredited dental coach.
