Hello, my name is Dr. Page Hudson, and I specialize in orthodontic treatment for kids and adults as well as early treatment for growing children. I love orthodontics and have dedicated my adult life to providing outstanding orthodontic care to my patients. I have been practicing orthodontics in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties for more than 20 years, and have treated well over 10,000 patients during my career. Connect with me on Google+ to learn more about me and Premier Orthodontics.
I grew up here in Southern California. I earned a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from UC Irvine in 1984. In 1988, I earned my doctoral degree in dental sciences at UCLA. I went on to earn my certificate in the specialty of orthodontics from the University of Connecticut in 1990.
In 1993, I opened my private practice in Oxnard, California. The practice became known as Custom Smiles Orthodontics. In 2011, I partnered with Dr. Thomas Lee, a good friend, to form Premier Orthodontics. I now have an office in Carpinteria as well, so we can serve communities from Goleta and Santa Barbara, Ojai, and Ventura to Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Camarillo, Santa Paula, Fillmore, Newbury Park, and surrounding areas.
Continuing Education and Experience
I am a huge believer in continuing education. I am a perpetual student and spend hundreds of hours each year learning about new procedures and incorporating them into my practice. Many dentists and other specialists refer patients to me because of my expertise in the use of two new technologies: Invisalign® and SureSmile®. I am Ventura County’s most experienced Invisalign orthodontist. I have have successfully treated more than 1,500 Invisalign cases.
Because of my experience with Invisalign, I was featured for five years in Invisalign’s first nationwide television advertising campaign. We are also the area’s leading experts in the use of SureSmile, the robotic wire-bending software that enables us to treat our patients with better results in less time than traditional braces.
I regularly lecture to general dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, and students at our local colleges. I am a member of the Super Schulman Study Group, an elite group of the nation’s most successful orthodontists who openly share their knowledge and expertise with fellow members.
During my college and graduate orthodontic specialty program, I won numerous awards and studied and published research in the area of palatal expansion.

Outside the Office
I am married with four kids and live in Camarillo. I spend most weekends at the soccer field or the volleyball courts with my daughters. In my free time, I also enjoy scuba diving for lobster, fishing, camping, fixing things, and motorcycle riding. I have a great surfboard collection, but I’m not too good at surfing yet. I am also a committed fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the UCLA Bruins, and the L.A. Lakers.
If you or someone you know would like a second opinion or would like to meet with me to discuss any of your orthodontic needs, I invite you to call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation appointment. I look forward to meeting you.
