I love Dr. Lide and his front staff and assistants. I've lived in San Antonio, Lubbock, Dallas, Garland, Rockwall, etc and finally found him in Richardson. I've compared his knowledge with other dentists and he is top notch. He has 4.7 out of 5 STARS! on Google and the best I can say is....you just can't please everyone (I'm referring to the 1 star posting people) AND people will always want to get the cheapest deal while sacrificing quality (Ex: the people who say ""they didn't need all this work""...well, all they're doing is delaying the inevitable in the hands of less qualified dentists, to only have a higher bill on their hands due to advancing decay, etc.) He has 4.7 out of 5 STARS FOR A REASON!!!!! Best I can see is that's the best rating by far for dentists in DFW!\r
----Anyhow, I had my wisdom teeth removed with him and it was THE BEST experience. I never had any of those horror story experiences I've read about other dentists (about saying inappropriate things after being under, not remembering waking up, vomiting, pain, etc.) He was BEYOND attentive and if anything cares more than any dentist or orthodontist I've seen for myself and my entire family. My husband also has a VERY bad gagging reflex and had to take a sedation pill prior to cleaning his teeth. Dr. Lide and his staff were GREAT with my husband and got him all clean up and good as new. :-). Definitely our dentist for life!!!!!
