Dr. C.C. Massey was raised in both west Texas and eastern New Mexico, and has found it incredibly gratifying to be back in the area where he was raised. While attending Abilene Christian University, Dr. Massey spent his summers in Lubbock teaching special education summer school for LISD. He recalls: “The three summers I spent in Lubbock teaching were some of the most rewarding times in my life. It formed in me a love for serving others as well a heart for the community and people of Lubbock.”
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from ACU in 2004, Dr. Massey pursued what he felt was a calling to healthcare by attending Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX from 2004 to 2008. Upon finishing in the top four percent of his dental class, he was then selected to continue with his specialty training in orthodontics at Baylor’s prestigious orthodontic residency program. While at Baylor, Dr. Massey enjoyed the honor of having three scientific research articles published as well as earning the Harry Sicher Award for the top clinical research completed in the field of orthodontics in 2010. In February of 2011, Dr. Massey had the opportunity to sit before the American Board of Orthodontists. He became one of the youngest board certified orthodontists in the country when he received Diplomate status after completing his exam, a distinction less than 30 percent of American orthodontists now hold.
For his work on mini-screw implants, Dr. Massey was asked to speak in Chicago at the American Association of Orthodontists annual meeting in May of 2011 where he was the youngest lecturer on the distinguished program. When asked about the experience Dr. Massey said, “It was incredibly humbling and intimidating to be asked to speak at an international meeting where many of the top researchers and orthodontists in the world attend every year. Although I believe my calling to be in the practice of orthodontics rather than in research, it was an amazing honor and one I will always cherish.”
Upon completing his residency in August of 2010, Dr. Massey and his wife, Kimberly, moved to Lubbock to join the St. Clair’s family practice. With Kimberly’s family in Lubbock and having spent most of his summers in Clovis, NM on his grandparents’ farm, Dr. Massey explains why he is so thankful for the great opportunity to join this incredible orthodontic practice: “The fact that St. Clair Orthodontics not only had their primary office in Lubbock but also had a satellite in Clovis, where many of my best childhood memories were made was almost too good to be true. It makes me incredibly thankful to God to have placed me in the perfect practice for me and my family.” He also explained what he loves most about the community he serves by saying, “I have always been thankful to be raised in an area where faith in God, family, and hard work still form the foundation for life. I am thrilled to be back to raise my boys in the same family-oriented environment that I enjoyed.”
Dr. Massey describes his faith, his family, and his profession as the most important things in his life. He and Kimberly have been blessed with three amazing boys: Austin, Colton and Judson. They attend Redeemer Church in Lubbock, where they love leading their gospel community group.
