Meet Your Team
Blake A. Feil, DDS, MS
Dr. Blake Feil is the founder of Feil Orthodontics, opening in Bismarck in 2009 and continuing to open offices in Beulah/Hazen (2010), Mandan (2013), and Dickinson (2015). His story began in Mandan, ND where he ventured into the healthcare field at an early age with a diagnosis of kidney failure after several years of health concerns. After a team of healthcare professionals restored him to good health, he became fascinated with science. He continued to foster interest in healthcare throughout his time in the Mandan public school system, where mentorship in a health careers course led him to pursue dentistry. Throughout middle school and high school, Dr. Feil’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to start his first businesses, running a pet shop out of his front yard and co-owning a vending machine company. You could also find him working hard as an eagle scout.
Dr. Feil completed his undergraduate studies at the University of North Dakota and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. He was inspired at Creighton by complex treatment planning and full mouth reconstruction cases, which led him to complete specialty training in orthodontics, earning his MS and Orthodontic Certificate at the University of Colorado.
Dr. Feil has always been proud to call North Dakota home and returned to Bismarck to open Feil Orthodontics in 2009. He has been a strong supporter of the Bismarck/Mandan community, earning the Prudential Spirit of the Community award. Dr. Feil currently serves on the board for the North Dakota Department of Health’s Children’s Special Health Services and for the Bismarck/Mandan Chamber of Commerce. He hosts and is a participating provider in the regional Cleft Lip Cleft Palate Clinic.
Dr. Feil enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife Tara (Kraft) Feil of Mandan and daughter, Claire. He is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys hunting, fishing, camping, biking, and taking long hikes in the North Dakota countryside with Tara, Claire, and their two dogs, Jackson and Maia. When Dr. Feil is not in the clinic, you will likely find him planting trees or tending to his countless landscaping projects. Dr. Feil also enjoys traveling and learning about new cultures. He takes a yearly retreat to hike and become immersed in new cultural experiences around the world to challenge himself to grow. Recent retreats have included hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, traversing the glaciers and landscape of New Zealand, and living in a hut in the Amazonian rainforest of Ecuador. Although he loves to travel, Dr. Feil continues to be happier than ever to call Bismarck/Mandan home.
