About Dr. Blanchard
Dr. Blanchard is an orthodontist in Tyler, Texas who loves her husband Neil, her two young children Blaine and Luke, and her dogs Kinsler and Annie. Outside of the office you can find her chasing around her kids, golfing, and watching college sports.
Dr. Katelyn Blanchard was born and raised in Longview. It was a long road for her to return to East Texas but she is so glad to be back! After Dr. Blanchard earned her Business Honors degree from the University of Texas at Austin, she made the move to Dallas to attend Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry. After earning her D.D.S., she went on to complete her orthodontic training at the LSU School of Dentistry in New Orleans. She left Louisiana with more than just a degree- she met her husband Neil while he was attending medical school at LSU as well!
Dr. Blanchard really enjoys working with patients of all ages that may be nervous or had negative dental experiences in the past. She finds it so rewarding to build that trust and see their confidence change as their smile improves!
From LSU, the Blanchard family migrated to Oklahoma City for Neil to complete his residency training in anesthesiology. In the years they spent in OKC, Dr. Blanchard ran a practice and doubled their family with the additions of their daughter Blaine in 2019 and son Luke in 2021. Lucky for us, Dr. Blanchard is a Texan at heart, so the family moved back to East Texas as soon as they could!
