Dr. Drake loves to fish, and about 15 years a trip to the Amazon to fish for Peacock bass landed him in a tent with a fellow fisherman who snored so loudly he scared the monkeys away at night. "That's when I came back home and said, 'man, I gotta learn more about how to treat snoring.'" That was the beginning of a journey that now has Dr. Drake being one of the top dental sleep medicine clinicians in the entire U.S. He has treated thousands of patients successfully with oral appliance therapy. He is in network with Aetna, Medicare, TriCare, and Humana. He works hard to maximize medical insurance (yes, Medical!) to keep patient's out of pocket to a minimum.

EXCELLENT! I’ve had problems sleeping for over a year and it’s progressively gotten worse. I went to the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale AZ for an executive physical and they were very good. I also went to my local family doctor. However, the guidance I got from Dr. Drake was far more in depth and valuable. He takes a personal interest and searches for solutions instead of automatically prescribing a pill. Ken Flint, CPA San Antonio, TX

The overall experience with Dr. Drake and the staff of Dental Sleep Solutions of San Antonio was exceptional. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and patient with me when I had questions. Dr. Drake explained exactly what I was to expect with my fitted dental device. I highly recommend Dr. Drake and Dental Sleep Solutions of San Antonio.

I don't usually look forward to a visit to a dentist's office. However, I have always enjoyed my interactions with Dr. Drake and his staff - and I do mean enjoy. Professional, personable, welcoming, and respectful of my time.
