Dr. Blake Feil is an orthodontist, entrepreneur, lifelong learner, and proud Bismarck-Mandan resident. He has been asking the community to “Smile with Feil” since opening Feil Orthodontics in 2009 and continues to serve the surrounding communities with locations in Bismarck, Mandan, Beulah, and Dickinson. He began his entrepreneurial career in Mandan at age 11, catching and selling turtles, salamanders, frogs, fish and snakes in a “pet shop” out of his garage. He then co-owned his own vending machine company, which he ran throughout his years at Mandan High School. After realizing that both snakes and candy are best in small doses, he pursued a degree in orthodontics, which allows him to create something the world can always use more of.
