Dr. Nichole Cauwels Dentist in Sioux Falls

Dr. Nichole Cauwels


I was born right here in Sioux Falls. I was lucky enough to have attended Washington High School downtown for 2 years prior to moving to the new building on the east side. I was among the first class of students to graduate from the “new” high school. After graduation, I went to UNL in Nebraska for college. I graduated with honors from UNMC College of Dentistry in 2000. I decided to further my education by completing a residency at Meriter Hospital in Madison, WI. There I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience in all aspects of general and specialty dentistry. I was asked to stay on to help teach at the program, while starting my career in cosmetics and private dentistry.

I have 4 children. I am blessed to have both 2 daughters and 2 sons. We enjoy spending time on the farm. We have a menagerie of chickens, pigs, dogs, cats, miniature cattle and even a tortoise. I love photography and have plenty of great subjects between the wildlife, kids and the farm critters.

Next to my family, my biggest passion is dentistry. I spend countless hours traveling to partake in the best continuing education courses I can. In particular, I enjoy orthodontics, TMJ treatments and restorative dentistry. A newly emerging area of dentistry that I have been learning about is treatment for sleep apnea. I love that I can offer solutions through dentistry that not only enhances people’s smile but also enhances their total body health and wellness.

For fun I like to ride the bike trails and visit the zoo. I love visiting our downtown area taking in shopping, restaurants and the sculpture walk.
