Our Practice and Core Values

Prairie Smiles Family Dentistry, located in Huron, SD, was established in 2014 when our dentist, a Huron, SD, native, Dr. Abigail Faul, took over the business from Dr. Thomas Hajek.

Driven by her goal to serve her hometown community for its general dentistry needs, Dr. Faul has made Prairie Smiles Family Dentistry a practice that you can enjoy your visit, not dread it.

The entire team here at Prairie Smiles Family Dentistry, enjoy helping people create and maintain beautiful, healthy smiles. Facilitating confidence in our patients with enhanced esthetics and functionality is what we do best.

We are proud to provide Huron and the surrounding areas with the highest quality dental services in the area.

With Dr. Faul’s personal connection to Huron, Prairie Smiles Family Dentistry likes to give back to the community through community events such as Trunk or Treat and preschool dental education.
