Biography

Judith Ragsdale, DDS, MSD I have been growing great smiles in The Woodlands since 1986. I completed my dental degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center Dental Branch at Houston in 1984 and received my certificate in pediatric dentistry from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1986 where I also received a Master of Science in Dentistry. During this two-year specialty training program, I learned all about the special dental needs of children. The curriculum included training in growth and development, child psychology, behavior management, dentistry for the special needs patient, sedation/general anesthesia and pediatric trauma. I'm an active member in good standing of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, The Texas Dental Association, and the Greater Houston Dental Society. I achieved Diplomate Status from the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 1993. I actively participate in continuing education courses. The most recently completed was the annual session of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry in Boston, Massachusetts where I concentrated my CE hours on course related to Pediatric Sedation. My husband, Arlin Maddox and I live in The Woodlands. I participate in many church and volunteer activities. I love my home and enjoy entertaining my family and friends. I have a passion for the game of golf and love my time with my "golfing gals." I enjoy working out, reading, Ladies Bible Study, my neighborhood Bunco group, needle work, arts and crafts, and spending time with my husband, family and friends and our two beloved kitties, BeBe and CoCo!
