Our Orthodontists

Meet the Premier Orthodontics Team

Alex

Certified Dental Technician

HI! Are you wearing retainers? Know of someone who has some? Well, if you or they receive them here, then you are wearing my handiwork. At Premier Orthodontics, I’ve had the pleasure of working side by side with amazing professionals since November 2012. I graduated from Dental Tech School in Simi Valley in 2001 and have been working in the field for more than 12 years. Working to me is more of an art, and in this office, it’s more fun than actual work! I love it here!

In my free time, I love playing sports and music, being outdoors, traveling, and most importantly, my wife! We’re recently got married and enjoy every minute! Together, we have plans on making another hit movie for this office. “Orthodontic Style” is just the beginning, and I’m looking forward to future experiences and laughter with everyone!

Angie

Schedule Coordinator

I have been in the general dental field since 2009 but have always had a love for orthodontics ever since I was a patient. I couldn’t be happier I was given the opportunity to join the Premier Orthodontics family this year. As a schedule/treatment coordinator I look forward to building new relationships with patients while watching their beautiful smiles transform. The positive and supportive environment here at Premier is so wonderful, I look forward to growing with the business.

Outside of work I have a love for working out, and as a busy mother of 3 handsome boys, I am constantly outdoors, wrestling or cuddling while watching a movie.

Amanda

Orthodontic Assistant

My love for orthodontics began when I was a patient, and I was so happy to join Premier Orthodontics in 2010. I am dental assistant studying to further my career as a Registered Dental Assistant. I’m currently completing my internship hours and I look forward to taking my exam this summer. I spend my days working directly with patients, building relationships with them and watching as their smiles transform. I also really appreciate working in such a fun, supportive environment. My coworkers are like my family!

Away from work, I enjoy my free time with my two beautiful daughters, going to the library, and watching funny movies.

Chad

Laboratory Technician

I’ve been a part of the Premier Orthodontics team since 2004, and make retainers and appliances for our patients. My favorite thing about orthodontics is happy, smiling people. I admire Dr. Hudson’s, Dr. Lee’s, and Dr. Nanda’s attention to detail and their laid-back personalities.

In my free time I like to weight train, ride motorcycles, hike, watch movies, and water and snow ski. You might not know that I was a personal fitness trainer for five years and on a gymnastics team for six years.

Our doctors are always making sure we receive the right training to satisfy our patients’ needs.

At home, I have a loving wife and two wonderful boys. In my spare time I love to spend time barbecuing with my family.

Guadalupe

Registered Dental Assistant / Lab Technician

I’ve been with Premier Orthodontics since 2002. My duties include assisting the doctors, helping in the lab to make retainers and appliances, and making my patients smile! My favorite thing about orthodontics is seeing the progression of teeth and the final results. I also like working with all three doctors because of their fun personalities.

I’m a native of Oxnard, and in my free time I like to listen to music, paint, skateboard, and go to concerts.

I have been with Premier Orthodontics since 2010 but in the field for more than 20 years. I love what I do and I enjoy coming to work every day. We have a wonderful staff and the doctors are awesome. They are like my second family!

I have been married for more than 15 years to my wonderful husband and we have three amazing kids: a boy and two girls. We love the outdoors, fishing off the pier, bike riding, and hanging out with friends and family.

Janae

Schedule Coordinator

Before I started working for Premier Orthodontics, I came in for an exam as a patient. I loved the environment so much that I became a part of the team in 2017 and it was life changing! I take pride in knowing I play a major role in providing THE BEST service to our patients in welcoming them. Not only to our practice but to be a part of the family since we are with you every step of the way. The best part of my job is fulfilling above and beyond all expectations that are set forth.

During my leisure time, I shower my babies Vienna (5) and Ezekiel (1) with the most love! I love doing life with my kiddos and partner, Andrew, who are my biggest motivation! Wholefoods, shopping, Jeeping, Gyming, hanging with friends... We love to enjoy it all, together.

Jen

Treatment Coordinator

My goal is to make new patients feel like they are a part of our Premier Orthodontic family. The best part of my job is meeting, getting to know, and befriending our patients. I also love working with Dr. Hudson, Dr. Lee, and Dr. Nanda, and always will. I am truly happy in my job and regularly let them know that even if they wanted to get rid of me, they can’t! I can’t imagine working at any other practice, not only because I feel like we are family, but because I thoroughly respect the knowledge and the values they have toward orthodontics and their patients. As for the rest of my team, well that is exactly what we are: a team! We all work together to make our practice the best for our patients and their families. I feel very lucky to be a part of such a great practice and team.

At home, I have two amazing children, a wonderful hubby, and lots of dogs! Our free time is usually spent outdoors barbequing, fishing, riding bikes, and camping and hunting. We are also lucky enough to go out on a boat whenever we want and whale watch or go to the Channel Islands. I love spending time with my family and friends, and of course our dogs!

Jessica

Financial Coordinator

I am one of the first business contacts that you will meet at our organization. Providing excellent customer service has always been very important to me. My favorite part of my job is welcoming new people into our office and being part of their smile transformation. It’s fascinating! I love working at Premier Orthodontics because our doctors are very committed and passionate about their profession, and our staff is very friendly and professional.

When away from work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two children, Isabella and Daniel, Jr. We are all Lakers fans. We like going to the movies on the weekends, camping, and barbecuing with our friends and family members.

Jessica G.

Records Technician

I recently joined the Premier Orthodontics family earlier this year and absolutely love working with them! Going through Orthodontic Treatment as a child gave me the desire to pursue a career in orthodontics and am glad that the time has finally come. My duties here at Premier Orthodontics include taking X-rays, photos, sterilizing instruments and maintaining patient records. I love seeing how our patients are progressing through their treatment and knowing that I had a part to do with the increase of confidence they now have with a beautiful smile.

When I am not working I love to spend time with my son Dylan and go watch and play baseball. We love going hiking, bike riding, going to the beach, snowboarding, fishing, hunting, you name it. California weather is just too beautiful to stay inside.

Kathya

Director of Operations

I’ve been with Premier Orthodontics since 2011. I assist the doctors in developing the procedures and training for the office and staff. My duties include overseeing the responsibilities of both the Clinic and Administrative teams. The doctors love what they do and they take pride in their work. I am always excited to come to work and continue to learn and help others understand how a smile can transform an individual’s life.

I was born and raised in Moorpark, CA. I recently got married (yay!) and we have the most adorable Golden Doodle by the name of Bruin.

Kimberly

I began my Orthodontic career in 1990 as an RDA and have worked my way to Office Manager. I have thoroughly enjoyed my career in Orthodontics. Here at Premier Orthodontics we truly are a family and we all share the love in providing the best quality of care and compassion for our patients. I love seeing the changes and being part of creating healthy beautiful smiles for our patients.

I'm an RDA and have been with Premier for over a year now. I enjoy coming to work everyday and seeing the amazing transformations of our patients smiles. What I also enjoy is working with our professional, friendly, FUNNY co workers. They make my day everyday! I'm really proud to work with amazing doctors who have state of the art equipment.

On my days off I enjoy watching the latest shows on Netflix and seeing the beautiful California by going on various hikes.

Skylar

Dental Assistant

I started working for Dr. Hudson and Dr. Lee in December of 2015. I am one of the first points of contact for our patients here in the office. My job is to provide you with exceptional customer service. My top goal is to make your time at Premier the BEST part of your day!

I started working in the dental field in 2012 in a pediatric office. Shortly after I transitioned into orthodontics and have enjoyed every moment. What I love about my job is the opportunity to build relationships with my patients. It is so much fun to be a part of their smile transformation. The doctors and team here at Premier really have a passion for whay they do. Providing excellent care for their patients is the number one priority. I feel greatly blessed to be a part of the family!

I recently married my wonderful husband, and best friend, Elijah. Together we enjoy spending time with our families, watching movies, and exploring new places.

Terisa

Orthodontic Assistant/Registered Dental Assistant

Hi! I'm Terisa and I joined the Premier team June 2018. After 11 years of retail I found interest in the dental field where I quickly found my love for Orthodontics. During my time off, I enjoy spending time with my man, Marco and our two dogs, Astro and Roxy. Picture a beautiful Pitbull and a goregous German Shepard. On our weekends together we enjoy the outdoors by going on hikes and bicycle rides around town. I love making people laugh and showing off my slick dance moves

Vida

Treatment Coordinator

I started working here in 2015. My job as receptionist at Premier Orthodontics is to provide a warm and welcoming environment to all of our patients. I answer any questions they may have and assist with their very first consultation here in our office. As a Treatment Coordinator, I get to listen to the patients concerns about their teeth and then get to set up a treatment plan for them. Watching the process unfold and seeing their journey is what I love most about my job.

It’s amazing to see how their smiles change with each appointment. I love working with our doctors because our doctors put smiles on the faces of our patients and change lives for the better every day. It truly is a team effort. Our team shares the same goal, to provide the best experience for each and every patient.

I have three wonderful kids Maliah, Adrian and Aliyah. They are my life and my greatest blessing. We love going for bike rides, watching movies and spending time with family.
