Dr. White

Meet Dr. White

-DDS, MS

Dr. Blair White was born and raised in Saginaw. After graduating from Nouvel Catholic Central High School, he had the opportunity to walk-on as a wide receiver for the Michigan State University football team. He earned a scholarship in 2009 and was voted by his teammates and coaches to receive the Biggie Munn Most Inspirational Player Award. While captaining the MSU football team his senior season, he 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 of seasons with the Indianapolis Colts under the tutelage of Peyton Manning. After a 14-year hiatus, Dr. White returned to Saginaw. The community, friends, family, and supporters in Mid-Michigan made his decision to return an easy one! He has always had an affinity for science and business, but his athletic background has imparted necessary values relating to dedication, discipline, leadership, and teamwork. He believes he has a duty to contribute meaningfully to society and create value for people both in his community and wherever else he is able, striving to stay involved with community initiatives and outreach programs.
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 four young children and a large extended family.
After many years of overflowing support both on and off the athletic field, the Whites count it a blessing to be back serving the people of Saginaw and the surrounding areas.
