Daniel R. Drake, DDS, MICOI

Daniel Raymond Drake was born and raised in the Detroit suburbs of Michigan. Raised in a family of four brothers and a sister, Dan grew up enjoying a variety of sports and athletics. Soccer, tennis, snow skiing, water skiing, and baseball are just a few of the extracurricular activities he became involved in his community. He later played tennis at the collegiate level at Kalamazoo College, his undergraduate alma mater. Dr. Drake majored in Biology planning to pursue a career in the medical professions. It wasn’t until his junior year he decided Dentistry was a field that fit this mold and allowed him to see patients and work with his hands. He subsequently attended the University of Michigan for dental school. Dr. Drake’s parents are native Floridians and during his childhood he spent considerable time visiting extended family in Florida. It was the weather and beaches that eventually tip the scale toward him deciding to move there and find an office that complemented his values and skill set. Ormond Beach soon became his new home in 2008 after joining Drs. Kraski and Costello. This transition has proven to be very successful as it has given the practice new energy and expanded the scope of procedures offered to patients. Dr. Drake is well known for offering IV sedation which allows patients to sleep while they have their dental work done. Also, he uses state of the art dental implants and surgery techniques for those who want to replace missing teeth. Of course, both Drs. Costello and Drake also provide comprehensive general dentistry – from fillings and crowns to root canals, extractions, and dentures. With the exception of only a few specialty procedures, their office is a place where one can receive high quality dentistry throughout their lifetime.
