The first Dominican members were converted while living in the United States. They returned to the Dominican Republic in 1978, and missionaries arrived the following year. In one year, more than 350 converts joined the Church. In 1992, Dominican members watched general conference for the first time via satellite.

The first Church temple in the Caribbean was dedicated in Santo Domingo on September 17, 2000. About 80 Church meetinghouses dot the country.
