Our Doctors

Dr. Blair Struble

Bend Oregon orthodontist Blair Struble D M D M S

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 orthodontic office.

Dr. Madeline Peterson

Bend Oregon orthodontist Madeline Peterson D D S

Madeline went to the University of Michigan Dental School and then attended OHSU here in Oregon for orthodontic residency. Understandably, she fell in love with Oregon and didn’t want to leave after residency. Now, about four years after moving to Oregon, she feels so lucky to call Bend home and is very excited to be joining our orthodontic office! She is certified by the American Board of Orthodontics and has a passion for changing smiles and improving the confidence of patients of all ages. Dr. Peterson’s name may be recognizable to you in the Bend dental community as her husband, Jake Peterson, is an Oral Surgeon who practices with Krueger & Lenox Oral Surgery. 

Madeline and her husband have two high energy puppies, Frank the Vizsla and Finn the German Shorthaired Pointer. In her spare time, she runs, bikes, hikes, climbs, skis, and explores anything outdoors with her dogs. She also loves to bake sweet treats. We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Peterson and to have the opportunity to introduce her to our wonderful dental community and patients. We know everyone will love her and the energy she brings to our orthodontic office and our patients.
