April Sterk

Dental Assistant

My name is April Sterk. I've been a resident of Pierre since 2001. I love spending time with my family and our house full of fur babies. If I have some free time, you can usually find me knitting, or spinning wool into yarn.  
I was terrified of the dentist for many years. My teeth were in terrible condition, and I would only go if there was an emergency. Then I met Dr Jensen and his staff. They made me feel safe, comfortable, and they were understanding of my fears. Together we spent two years remaking my smile. Along with my smile, I gained so much confidence. When I was invited by Family Dental of Pierre to come onto the team as a dental assistant, I couldn't resist the offer. I care deeply for the patients that visit our office. My goal is to ensure that every patient, feels comfortable, safe, and to leave our office with a smile that they can be proud of.


We combine experience with the latest in dental technology to deliver the best patient experience possible.
