Terry A. Drake, DDS

Dr. Drake earned his Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from Luther College (Iowa) in 1977. He attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and earned his DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree in 1982. He has been practicing dentistry in Fergus Falls since 1983.

Dr. Drake has two sons, Adam and David. When he is not helping patients or spending time with his family, Dr. Drake enjoys golfing and fishing. He is a longtime member of the Heartland Study Club and is also active in fishing and game clubs. As a dentist, Dr. Drake enjoys providing quality dental care and giving his patients the treatments they need for a healthy, bright smile.


Our staff is like a family and we enjoy our relationships with each other and with our patients. We welcome visitors into our dental family and we take pride in providing great dental care and improving the oral health of our patients. We are able to keep things personal with a smaller staff, which includes two hygienists, an assistant, and a front desk receptionist.
