Our Doctors


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.

Dr. Erica Crosta

Orthodontics truly is the best profession. I am so fortunate to be able to share all the knowledge I have learned with my patients in order to give them beautiful, healthy smiles. The impact that orthodontics has on individuals is life changing, and to be able to be a part of that life-changing experience is so rewarding.

Orthodontics changed my life when I was a child, and I knew from that moment I wanted to have the same effect on people. Orthodontics is a unique specialty because it allows me to work with all types of patients, from young kids to adults. Regardless of their age, I am dedicated to making all my patients’ experiences at Struble Orthodontics exceptional.

live life with a smile

“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.”

~ Zach R.

“As a dentist, I highly recommend Struble Orthodontics not only for my patients but for my family members too. Dr. Struble’s superb training in orthodontics is reflected in her outstanding 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.”
