Dr. White

Meet Dr. White

-DDS, MS

After a 14 year hiatus, Dr. White is back in Saginaw. The community, friends, family, and supporters in Mid-Michigan have made the decision to return quite easy. He was born and completed his primary education in Saginaw. After high school, Dr. White had the opportunity to walk-on as a wide receiver to the Michigan State football team. He is particularly fond that his teammates and coaches voted him the Biggie Munn Most Inspirational Player Award after earning a scholarship in 2009. He captained the MSU football team his senior season and received the President’s Award for the Big Ten Conference Medal of Honor as the graduating male athlete with the greatest proficiency in athletics and scholastics. He later went on to play a couple seasons with the Indianapolis Colts under the tutelage of Peyton Manning. As you might guess then, athletic competition has imparted timeless values for Dr. White. Building on these values, he believes he has a duty to contribute meaningfully to society and create value for people in his community and the world. He strives to stay involved with outreach programs and community initiatives.
Dr. White’s wife, Karlie, is also from Saginaw. Karlie is a scholar and athlete in her own right, competing on the Northwood University women’s basketball team. She received all-defensive team honors her senior season but more importantly, takes no mercy on Dr. White in a competitive game of horse. During her time at Northwood, she earned a triple major in advertising, marketing and management and completed her Master of Business Administration. Karlie and Blair have three young children and a large and active extended family.
After many years of overflowing support on and off the athletic field, the Whites are blessed to be back and serving the people of Saginaw.
