Meet Dr. Blair Struble

I love being an orthodontist! I feel so fortunate to have joined the most amazing profession in the world. I have found that my ability to help people in such a meaningful way is so rewarding. It’s very satisfying to have a people-focused job that also has hands-on technical aspects. I chose orthodontics because it combines the perfect mix of science, art, and genuine personal interaction. I love working with my hands to create beautiful smiles and find the mechanics of orthodontics fascinating.

I am so lucky to have an incredible team. They strive every day to provide the best care for all of our patients. Our team is well trained, dedicated, and driven to provide exceptional care to each and every person who enters our practice.

Education and Continuing Education

I grew up right here in Bend, and I am proud of my education in dental and orthodontic medicine at some of the finest institutions in the Pacific Northwest. I did my undergraduate work at Willamette University in Salem, then attended Oregon Health & Science University in Portland to earn my Doctorate of Dental Medicine. After that, I spent time in Seattle pursuing my Master of Science in dentistry and certification in orthodontics at the University of Washington.

Orthodontics is one of the fastest-evolving and exciting areas of dentistry. Treatments continue to improve and evolve year after year, and I am excited to deliver these improvements and innovations to my patients. I regularly participate in continuing education programs through my many professional affiliations. I belong to the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Oregon Dental Association, the Central Oregon Dental Society, and the American Board of Orthodontics, of which I am a board-certified Diplomate. I served as the chair of the Council on New and Younger Members (CONYM) for the American Association of Orthodontists.

I often use my experience in the field to lecture to local high school, hygiene, and dental assisting students about orthodontic techniques and technologies. I also spend much of my time visiting the local public schools to speak to elementary-school children about the importance of great oral hygiene practices.

Outside the Office

I have a wonderfully supportive and incredibly patient husband named Trebor. He is a physician assistant at one of our local medical clinics. We have two beautiful little girls named Taylor and Tennyson who are the joy of our lives! We also have a very lively yellow Labrador retriever named Boss.

Outside of the office, I have a real passion for volleyball: I have coached a championship-winning local high school team. I am also a board member of the KIDS Center for child abuse prevention and intervention. I love my community and I strive to make it better in everything I do.

“An excellent rating does not go far enough to express how awesome Dr. Struble has been. As a busy college senior, she has repeatedly worked with my schedule to make sure all my needs were met. I had met with other orthodontists in Bend in the past, and experienced a lack of patient care. She is an incredible orthodontist and person, and I highly recommend her practice to ANYONE who needs orthodontic care.”

Her kindness and caring is evident for all her patients. For so many reasons, Struble Orthodontics is an excellent choice for your orthodontic treatment!”

~ Dr. Jill Schroeder

“I recommend Dr. Struble without any hesitation. Her expertise coupled with a wonderful "bedside" manner immediately put me at ease. She is thorough and demonstrates a level of attention to detail you wish for in an orthodontist. The staff is friendly, competent and professional. I appreciate the ease of making appointments and love the environment of the office.”
