Dr. Richard Clark, Morningside Dental, Sioux City, IA

Our Story

Morningside Dental was founded in Sioux City, Iowa, in 1976 by Dr. Richard Clark and his wife, Barb. Dr. Clark brought Dr. Charles (Chip) Kiple on board in 1995 and they shared a business partnership along with a strong friendship until Dr. Clark’s unexpected death in 2004. Today Dr. Kiple and his team uphold the exceptional legacy of Morningside Dental’s founder by ensuring it’s a place, as Dr. Clark liked to say, “where patients send their friends.”
