Our Orthodontists


 
Dr. Thomas C. Lee Dr. Page Hudson Dr. Ryan Pendleton
Thomas C. Lee DDS MS

Becoming an orthodontist is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.  I feel fortunate to be able to be a part of such a wonderful profession.  Not only do I enjoy creating beautiful, healthy smiles, I also enjoy meeting and building relationships with children, teens, adults and families in our community.  With orthodontics, my team and I “change lives” everyday!  The ability to give children and adults more confidence by changing their smile is priceless.  For some it’s restoring the ability to eat and chew without difficulty or pain. 

My drive to become an orthodontist began when I had braces myself at the age of 11.  I was amazed at the changes that were happening in my mouth with braces!  I grew up, here in Southern California, in the San Fernando Valley and attended the California State University, Northridge for my undergraduate education.  The University of Southern California School of Dentistry was my next stop for the next 7 years, 4 years to earn a doctor of dental surgery (DDS) degree and 3 more years of orthodontic residency and a Masters of Science (MS) degree in craniofacial biology.

After completing my orthodontic residency in May 2002, I moved to Ventura County and began an associateship in an orthodontic office in Oxnard.  I purchased that same office later that year in December 2002.  Since then I have been serving the community with the goals of providing friendly, caring, high quality orthodontic treatment utilizing the most up-to-date techniques and technologies. 

Continuing education is vital to keeping abreast of the latest research and advances.  I enjoy learning and attend several meetings throughout the year.  I am also a member of two local study clubs with other dental colleagues to discuss treatment options for difficult cases and to present journal articles to keep each other educated in all aspects of dentistry.

Being a positive, contributing member of our community and society is important to me.  Children are our future.  That is why I have chosen to support the Boys and Girls Club.  This wonderful organization gives a safe, positive, nurturing, supportive place for kids and teens to play and learn.

My wife, Heidi, and I met during our undergraduate education in 1993.  She is the pillar of my life.  We have 2 wonderful children, Parker and Sophie.  When I am not in the office, my time is spent with my wife and kids, golfing, watching USC football (FIGHT ON!), snow skiing and coaching little league.
