Dr. Kretschmar's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kretschmar "I look forward to meeting you. The relationships I build with my patients are what keep me fulfilled everyday. I am committed to providing high-quality care based on a foundation of honesty. Honesty guides me at all times because patients like you trust me with your health. I go home each day feeling good about what I do. It is an exciting time to be a dentist because the impact oral health can have on total body wellness is astonishing. I find people are more educated, more informed and more inquisitive then ever. I believe this is a positive trend and I encourage you to take ownership of your health. As your dentist my role is to listen, evaluate, educate and provide recommendations. I enjoy being at the forefront of my field. I strive for clinical excellence and I offer you service that is comfortable, cutting-edge, fact-based and friendly.

We continuously improve through ongoing education and service to our community. I am originally from Utah. I received my bachelors of science from the University of Utah. I graduated with highest honors, as Valedictorian, from the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. I then went on to complete my residency at the Veterans Affairs in Salt Lake City. I always knew I did not want to settle down in Utah, so after two years of private practice my husband and I decided to move to the Black Hills. I met Dr. Dan Custis (now retired) and was invited to join the team at Destination Dentistry in 2013. After being here for a year, I knew I wanted to stay so I decided to purchase the practice with Dr. Dan. I currently reside in Custer with my husband, Luke. We bought and renovated a 1966 home. We love the outdoors and Custer is the perfect place for us to get out and enjoy it. In my free time I love to bike, hike, paddleboard and ski. I have a passion for traveling and experiencing different cultures.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kretschmar "Dr. Rebecca was born in Georgia and relocated to Montana; she was raised there until she was six. She and her mother moved to Utah where she grew up. Watching her mother struggle with dental issues throughout her life, as Dr. Rebecca was growing up, is one of the reasons that Dr. Rebecca decided to go into dentistry. Helping her mom achieve a beautiful smile, transcended into helping many of Dr. Rebecca's patients in similar ways. Dr. Rebecca says "I have seen it, time and time again; a smile can change people's lives and I enjoy helping my patients make that happen." Dr. Rebecca went to the University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco, California; she spent three years earning her degree and graduated as valedictorian from her dental class."
