My daughter couldn’t go through with the appointment because she was to scared and they tried everything calmly to get her comfortable but it didn’t work. They were so understanding. We called that day and he rearranged the schedule to get her in. That was amazing also. They were great.

Eric Aulner, Mitchell

Thank you always a pleasure atmosphere pleasant company and amazing results that will make you smile

Sarah O, Woonsocket

Thank u so much for getting me in!!

Olivia , Mitchell

I love Dr Drake and his employees. I am always greeted with a smile. It has been a while since I have been in. I thought it was only a few months. I got this call yesterday to remind me that its time to schedule an appointment. i don't know if they meant it to make me laugh but it did! I went to another dentist a couple of years back just to try it out and they had a nice new office but thats where everything else nice ended. Dr Drakes office is cozy! I have never been to a spa but his massage chairs and blankets are so nice and make me feel fancy. He really explained what was going on and what my options were. The other dentist only had one option and it seemed even to me extreme. I trust Dr Drake with my whole heart. He'll be my dentist for life now. Thanks Dr Drake for caring enough and giving me the time to understand.

Linda K, Woonsocket

Very thorough and accommodating

Lester Neugebauer, Mitchell

I had an issue and they went out of their way to get me accommodated including late night appt. as well as a late night wellness check. I have always appreciated the quick and courteous service.

Selena McCreight, Mitchell

I used to have a different dentist in Mitchell and I knew I was needing to explore my options. I called my normal dentist the day (it was a Friday) my daughter broke her tooth at the Mitchell Aquatic pool and they told me it would be Tuesday before they could get her in. She was crying and I wasn't sure if she was in pain or just scared. I took my chances and called Drake, and I was prepared for them to say they couldn't see her because it was 5PM and because we were not already established patients. They said YES and we headed right there from the pool and Dr. Drake bonded my daughters tooth! With kindness and patience and a smile on his face he and his staff stayed late and fit us in! and It was affordable! I am moving to Ohio and I will greatly miss Dr. Drake and his staff. Any new dentist will have a lot to live up to! It's obvious that Dr. Drake cares about his patients. He gets to know you, he takes time to help you be more educated about your oral care and we will miss him!

Jaclyn C., Armour

What a great experience! My four year old son needed to visit the dentist for the first time, and the staff here were amazing with him. He was so anxious at first, not even wanting to get out of the car to go in. The staff that worked with him took their time to show him all the tools they use, and they gave him time to become comfortable with his surroundings. I appreciated the way they were patient with him and took time to answer all his questions. He can't wait to go back! Thank you so much for making his first time a joyful experience.

Jenny K, Mitchell

I cannot say how much I appreciate Dr. Drake. He did a AMAZING JOB fixing two cavities on my front teeth. I will be recommending him to my friends. Thank you to him as well as his staff.
