As for his educational background, Dr. Tobkin graduated high school in Veblen, SD in 1994 – in fact, he was only one of three! He completed his first year of undergrad at the University of Minnesota, Morris where he played football as the quarterback and baseball (outfield). He then transferred to Eastern New Mexico University and played football before graduating with Magna Cum Laude honors with his Bachelor of Science in Biology.

By always learning about the latest techniques and technologies in the field, he believes that he can provide truly outstanding treatment. He is currently a member of the American Dental Association and the South Dakota Dental Association.

Today, Dr. Tobkin couldn’t be happier with his chosen profession. He loves helping people! In particular, he enjoys practicing all aspects of general care. He strongly believes that every patient deserves a beautiful smile and healthy teeth. He works hard to understanding their individual needs and desires and help them become a reality. Additionally, a personal satisfaction of his is being able to provide top-tier care in a pain-free and relaxed environment. Because most people would rather be anywhere else than a dental office, he never takes a patient’s trust for granted. Instead, he does the best he can to make their appointment fun and genuinely comfortable throughout all procedures. He also prioritizes good communication and presents all clinical information is a transparent fashion, answering any and all questions ahead of time.
