Dr. Blanco was born and raised in Cuba. His mother, Dr. Raisa Niurka Sanchez, practiced as a general dentist and later specialized in orthodontics. She has always been one of his biggest personal and professional inspirations. Dr. Blanco’s passion for dentistry began early in life while helping his mother raise awareness about oral health in their small town.
Dr. Blanco moved to the United States in 2005 and obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of South Florida in Tampa in 2011. While in USF he was a recipient of several scholarships, including the Latino Scholarship which recognizes students for their academic merits. Dr. Blanco graduated from the University of Florida College of Dentistry in Gainesville in 2015. While in dental school Dr. Blanco had the amazing opportunity to visit Jamaica on two consecutive years as part of a dental mission trip, the second time he helped organize the trip. He has also participated in several other volunteer events including the Florida Mission of Mercy.
One of the many reasons why Dr. Blanco chose dentistry is because he would like to be a lifelong learner. Since graduating from dental school he has earned over 300 continuing education hours. He has taken several postdoctoral courses in areas like occlusion, prosthodontics, endodontics, periodontal and general surgery, as well as, implantology. In 2017 Dr. Blanco completed the UF College of Dentistry Implant Educators Comprehensive Interdisciplinary Implant Continuum and he is a current student of the Dawson Academy.
Dr. Blanco is a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
Dr. Blanco is an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association and International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
I met Dr Blanco a few years ago when we both were in dental school and we became very good friends. I knew he was going to be an excellent dentist because he is an exceptional person, very intelligent, kind and dedicated professional. I have seen him improved his skills and knowledge year after year taking CE courses to be able to deliver best treatment for his patients.
