Meet the Premier Orthodontics Team

Abby

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been working as an orthodontic assistant at Premier Orthodontics since October 2005. I work with patients in the back office, where I make them feel comfortable and at home. I work in a beautiful and comfortable office with great coworkers.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my four beautiful boys. David, Victor, Adrian, and Carlos are my life. I enjoy watching them play sports, and we love going on family trips, fishing, and having barbecues.

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 married and enjoying 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!

Amanda

Dental 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.

Cassie

Records / Sterilization Technician

I joined Premier Orthodontics in March 2011 and I love every minute of it. My contributions here involve maintaining records for all new patients, taking X-rays and photos of patients, making sure assistants have what they need, and sterilizing instruments. I also help wherever I am needed and feel very fortunate to be part of this wonderful team. What I enjoy most about my job is working with our wonderful patients and watching them progress through each visit with us in their transformation to a beautiful smile!

When I’m not working or at school I love to spend my spare time with family. I have been blessed with a handsome little boy named Jason; he is my pride and joy.

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.

I’m proud of our doctors’ work and their end results of our patients’ treatment. Everyone here strives to be our best, and we end up with awesome patients who love coming in to see us!

Jen

Registered Dental Assistant/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

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.

Kathya

Director of Operations

My job is to make every new patient feel comfortable during their initial exam and make it possible for our patients to start treatment. I am also bilingual, so I make sure that all Spanish-speaking patients are taken care of. My duties also include overseeing the responsibilities of the Administrative team. The doctors love what they do and they take pride in their work which reflects on our team. I have to thank the doctors in our practice for always allowing us to grow as individuals both in and outside of the office. I started working for Premier right out of high school and have learned so much about this industry already. I am always excited to come to work and continue to learn and help others understand how amazing a great smile can transform a life.

I was born and raised in Moorpark, CA where I currently reside. When I am not in the office I enjoy spending my time with my family and friends. Some of my closest friends are my co-workers and all of our families enjoy spending time with one another.

Dr. Hudson, Dr. Nanda, and Dr. Lee are the nicest doctors I’ve ever worked for. Together they and the team make work fun. I love my coworkers, too.

Michelle

Registered Dental Assistant

I began my career as an RDA in July 1990. I worked for my previous employer for 23 years. That is where I met Dr. Lee! When the doctor I worked for retired, I took a little time off, and then called Dr. Lee to see if he was hiring! I love to see the confidence in patients when they are finished and have such beautiful smiles. We see patients so often that I feel as though I build lasting relationships with them. Dr. Lee and Dr. Hudson show so much compassion when working on patients. They both are so caring and attentive to all of their patients. I am truly honored to work with an amazing group of men and women.

I have been married for 20 years and have two beautiful daughters. My oldest attends Paul Mitchell School of Beauty and my youngest is a junior in high school and the goal keeper for the girls’ varsity soccer team. When I’m not working, I am busy with my husband and daughters, and when I do have some down time, I love to read. I also help my mom with her new German Shepherd puppy, Ruby.

Rachel

Treatment Coordinator

As a Treatment Coordinator my goal is to make everyone’s orthodontic experience enjoyable. I’m excited to meet new patients every day! I’ve been part of this wonderful team since 2011 and looking forward to many more years. It is an honor to be working with two of the greatest Orthodontist in Ventura County. I’d say the best part of my job is educating our patient’s about their orthodontic treatment and welcoming them to our Premier family. It’s such a wonderful feeling seeing our patients have a huge smile on their face and knowing they are extremely happy with their ending results. That feeling is so powerful and I’m happy to be a part of their happy experience.

On a personal note: I’m a mother of two beautiful girls, Destiny and Audrey. We have two handsome dogs named Raider and Blue. I’m also a makeup artist and have worked with some actors in the past…super fun! Our family enjoys camping, backyard movie nights, BBQ’s, watching football, spending time with our friends, shopping, and traveling. The best part is when I cook for the whole family…I just Love cooking!
