Meet Dr. Dan Blue

On Being an Orthodontist

My profession is my passion. I enjoy my job more than anyone I know. As an orthodontist, I have the privilege of creating uninhibited smiles and allowing people to openly, confidently express their happiness.

Orthodontists honestly boost the quality of life of our patients. A smile is the universal symbol for happiness. I love my job more than anyone could imagine because I am able to enhance a person’s confidence to smile more often and more freely. Confident smiles are contagious, so I also have the opportunity to make my patients’ friends and families happier, too!

As for my patients, I truly love each unique human being attached to their transforming smiles. Each person has his or her unique set of quirks and qualities, and learning about these aspects of their personalities is always fun. I love delighting my patients by taking an active interest in their lives. This, in turn, delights me!

My Education and Commitment to Continuing Education

  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery, Baylor College of Dentistry
  • Orthodontic Certificate, University of Nevada
  • Prosthodontic Certificate, Baylor College of Dentistry
  • Master of Science, Baylor College of Dentistry

Throughout the years I attend orthodontic and oral healthcare meetings, seminars, and lectures, learning from the leaders in the field. By staying abreast of the latest developments in techniques and technology, I am able to ensure my patients have access to the highest level of care available.

As a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association, I have access to the latest research and findings, through their respective publications and journals. This, too, ensures the best care for my patients.

Personal Life

Originally from Dallas, TX, Phoenix, AZ, has been my home for the last 13 years. My wife Ann is a Periodontist and we have three children, as well as a dog. Our family life keeps me busy, and being with Ann and the children is always my highest priority, especially when we take trips together. Personally, I enjoy off-roading, camping, and hunting, and playing my guitar.

Through Blue Orthodontics, I am able to give back to our wonderful community. We donate time, materials, and money to organizations and groups including the Paradise Valley School District, the Madison School District, Saint Francis Xavier, St. Vincent DePaul, and the Knights of Columbus.

  • My sons and my daughters absolutely LOVE Blue Orthodontics! They make you feel like family while they are taking great care of you. Everyone there knows what they are doing, educates you as a patient and parent. My daughter wrote them a note, put in the mail and they wrote her back a nice note! It’s those little things that matter and make you feel a part of a family. Thank you Blue!
