    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!

    Leslie Blackburn, DDS, MSD

    I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. My father was still in training to be an ENT, so we moved around a lot before settling in beautiful Jonesboro, Arkansas. After graduating from Jonesboro High School I headed off to Provo, Utah, where I attended Brigham Young University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology in 2003. Although I always knew I wanted to work with children, after graduating I took a few years to look at my career options and decided in what way I would work with kids. Finally, I decided that pediatric dentistry was the career for me. I went to Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in New York and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery and also a Masters of Science and Dental Education in 2012. Then I completed the final leg of my education at Yale University, receiving my certificate in Pediatric Dentistry in 2014.

     

    I'm married to Shawn Blackburn, who is an attorney in downtown Houston at the firm of Susman Godfrey.  We have a wonderful little daughter named Isadora who loves to dance and make up sweet moves, and my giant baby Rockwell, who is eating us out of house and home. We live in Benders Landing right across 45, and absolutely love our communities there and here in The Woodlands.  My husband calls me his bookworm – I love reading, and I also enjoy lifting weights and getting aerobic exercise by doing anything involving dancing (Zumba, Just Dance on the Wii – I love it all!).  I have a passion for trying delicious new restaurants and playing with my family. I'm extremely excited to be back south and to experience Texas and the wonderful area of The Woodlands.
