St Dominick (Cornish: Sen Domynek) is a civil parish and village in Cornwall, England. The village is situated 2 1⁄2 miles (4.0 km) east of Callington and five miles (8 km) north of Saltash. The population of the parish was 833 in the 2001 census.

"St Dominick" is the historic spelling but this is gradually changing to drop the letter 'k'. It is still spelt with the 'k' on Ordnance Survey mapping but Cornwall Council spells the parish name without the 'k'.

St Dominick parish is bounded by Calstock parish to the north, by the River Tamar and the border with Devon to the east, by St. Mellion parish to the south and by Callington parish to the west.

The parish was part of the East Hundred of Cornwall. It was located in Liskeard Rural District between 1894 and 1934 and in St. Germans Rural District between 1934 and 1974.

The ecclesiastical parish is named after a female saint, St Dominica, and is in the Deanery and Hundred of East. Historic birth and death registers are in Liskeard and marriage registers are in St. Germans.

The parish church is dedicated to St Dominica and has two aisles. The south aisle is the earlier of the two; the tower (of the 13th century) is of an unusual design.

As well as the church town the parish settlements include Burraton, Bohetheric (also known as Etheric), and Halton Quay. A National Trust house, Cotehele, lies north of St Dominic.
