Dr. Richard Drake

Dr. Drake earned his DDS degree from the University of Texas HSC in San Antonio, TX in 1989. He practiced general dentistry until 2001 when a trip to the Amazon jungle for peacock bass landed him in a tent with a fellow fisherman who snored so loudly he scared the monkeys away at night. Soon after, he devoted his practice to the treatment of snoring, upper airway resistance, and obstructive sleep apnea. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine and has served as the Secretary/Treasurer and also President-Elect of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

She brings over a decade of medical billing experience to the Team. Dr. Drake boasts "Lydia is so good at the verification of benefits both in English or Spanish, patients fondly refer to her as my Insurance Guru". When Lydia is not using her skills at the office, you will find her cruising through the streets of San Antonio in her Silver Mustang "Sally".
