Drake S. Oversen D.D.S.

Background and Education

Dr. Oversen was born in Racine, Wisconsin and raised in the town of Goshen, Indiana. Growing up, he was actively involved in sports and academics, the latter of which landed him scholarship money to help fund his two BS degrees: one in Biology with an emphasis in Chemistry and another in Psychology. After college at Indiana University in Bloomington, he moved home and worked as a social worker for two years prior to attending Indiana University School of Dentistry in Indianapolis. His dentistry career started in Colorado Springs, CO on Fort Carson as he served as a captain in the Army honing his techniques, learning how to use same-day CAD/CAM crown technology, and organizing annual events such as the Dental Health Education Month visits with the elementary schools on Fort Carson and the Veterans Day Appreciation event which the Army and Air Force worked together on to provide free dental screenings.
