Trust Your Family's Smiles to Creative Smile Designs

Dr. Lynch moved to Rapid City in 1974 with his family from Zweibrucken, Germany. He graduated from Douglas High School in 1978.

In 1995, Dr. Lynch married his wife Patti. They are members of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. They have two daughters, Kaitlynn and Kari.

Dr. Lynch is involved with Boy Scouts and Camp Friendship (a camp for the developmentally disabled).

Since 1986, Dr. Edward Lynch has been serving the general, implant, and cosmetic dental needs of Rapid City. 

You can trust Dr. Lynch to listen to your wishes and concerns and to provide you with an unmatched level of expertise, attention to detail, and concern for your comfort.

We know that each person has individual needs that require specialized attention in a safe, friendly and professional environment. Quality, gentleness, compassion, care and concern have always been top priorities for our patients.

Through the years, our loyal patients have graciously allowed us to not only provide traditional dental care and cosmetic dentistry, but have also trusted us to provide the very latest and most advanced dental procedures as well. 

We are proud to offer BioHorizons conventional and one-piece implants. We are pleased to perform bone regeneration procedures for our patients who have been told they cannot have implants. 

Specially secured dentures using implants won’t slip or cause discomfort. We also offer sedation dentistry for the fearful patient.
