Meet Dr. Jared Lee, your Oxnard Orthodontist
Dr. Jared Lee grew up in Fullerton, CA before attending Brigham Young University. After his freshman year, he put school on hold for a two-year church mission in Mexico where he learned to speak Spanish, but more importantly, he found that life is best lived serving others. He returned to BYU and earned his undergraduate degree in Exercise Science with a double major in Anthropology. He then received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from UCLA. During dental school, Dr. Lee served as the representative for all California dental students to the American Student Dental Association, participating in several committees. At UCLA he co-authored a research study on the diagnosis of dental caries using sophisticated 3-dimensional imaging technology.
After dental school, Dr. Lee spent three years as a postdoctoral clinical fellow at Columbia University in New York City where he received a Master’s degree in Orthodontics. His research focused on the accuracy of computerized representations of dental and skeletal models.
Why an Orthodontist in Oxnard? Orthodontist vs. Dentist
An orthodontist is a dentist, but a dentist is not an Orthodontist. Not every dentist is qualified to be an orthodontist, even though every orthodontist starts as a dentist. Dr. Jared Lee, like all orthodontists, continued their education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving the necessary license and certification. Dr. Jared Lee, like all orthodontists, have spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to perform the treatment plan that you need.
Why does it matter if you see your Oxnard Orthodontist?
Dentists receive basic orthodontic training so they can perform root canals, extract wisdom teeth, and treat young children who don’t need to see an orthodontist yet. Specialists receive additional training to give them the skills needed to deal with more complex orthodontic issues.
Seeing a specialist like an Oxnard orthodontist may change your braces experience by:
- Providing more treatment options, with a variety of braces or therapies to choose from
- Having personal experience treating multiple cases that are similar to your unique concerns and anatomical characteristics.
- More efficient treatment and visits, because it’s the office’s main focus.
- Knowing that you’ll receive the best possible outcome on your treatment plan, especially if you have worse than usual bite discrepancies that need to be dealt with
- Being seen more quickly, as a family dentist will be focused on longer patient cases or emergencies throughout the day.
You may think it’s fine to have your orthodontic work done by your dentist, but convenience shouldn’t be a barrier to seeing a specialist. You’ll only need to stop by Oxnard orthodontic offices every six to eight weeks.
And don’t let price be a problem either! 805 Orthodontics is proud to provide affordable treatment in the Oxnard area.
Testimonials from Oxnard orthodontist patients
"The office is modern and slick, with current music playing. It feels more like a salon than a dentist's office. There is a huge map of the world in the downscaled kids waiting room. I am an adult Invisalign patient and thrilled with the results. I am about 2/3 through my treatment and I am already more than satisfied with my smile. it is a bit expensive but they worked out a payment plan that makes it really painless. I consider it money well spent. Veronica and Anne-Marie are so friendly and personable, as is Dr. Lee." - Kristi N.
