Dr. Blasi is an affiliate member of the Edward H. Angle Midwest Society of Orthodontist. The Edward Angle Society is the world's most prestigious orthodontic honor society and allows him to stay current with the latest advances within the profession. With his experience, he has gained a unique approach to treat both children and adults.
His treatment philosophy is based on a comprehensive diagnosis of the whole maxillofacial complex and a differentiation between the skeletal and dental components; it is the key to create facial harmony, beauty and smiles to facial esthetics. He believes that early treatment in young children can eliminate complex treatment care and other problems in the future with the correct management of growth and development. If the patient is treated young enough, tooth extractions and airway problems could be avoided. He also specializes in diagnosis and management of sleep apnea, periodontal complex adult cases, impacted teeth, congenitally missing teeth, and TMJ disorder treatment.
Due to his passion for teaching and education, Dr. Blasi has published many articles and frequently lectures nationally and internationally in the field of Orthodontics. He is also a member of various national and international dental and orthodontic societies.
