Patient Review By Eleanor G
I had a great experience getting my wisdom teeth out at Houston Oral Surgery. The most important part to me was getting a quick turn around for scheduling my removal after the consultation, which I was able to achieve despite my limiting deadline of school starting back up. I was also able to swap appointment times with my sister, who also got her wisdom teeth removed the same month as me, so I am greatly apperceptive of the flexibility and patience.

I have had two extractions and one implant with Dr Maida. He is very thorough. He explains everything and addresses all questions and concerns. I feel like he is very careful with his work. He also calls personally to check on you after you’ve had surgery. Everyone in the office is courteous and kind.

Patient Review By Lysa L
From the consultation to the scheduled surgery day Dr. Maida and his staff were very kind and professional throughout the entire process. I was very nervous about having my wisdom teeth removed and after having a consultation with 2 other oral surgeons I am happy with the decision that I made. During my consultation, the procedure and risks were explained thoroughly and on the day of surgery, his surgical staff was AMAZING. Leticia was very sweet and patient with me as I began getting anxious for the procedure. Before I knew it, I was out and it was all over. One of the things I was most impressed with was the post-op experience. I had little to no pain on the days following surgery and recovered quickly. One week later I had a follow up and any concerns or questions you have are addressed. Would definitely recommend Dr. Maida and his office to friends/family!

Dr. Maida and his surgical staff were welcoming and detail-oriented. Jessica, one of the staff members, helped eased my nerves before my wisdom teeth removal. She explained the removal process, and she was right because everything happened promptly, and the numbing medicine worked for several days! Dr. Maida was readily available to answer my questions, and he made time to speak to my mom before the removal to discuss the next steps following my removal and healing. My mom couldn't even tell the difference. That's how neat Dr. Maida is. He called in the evening to make sure I was doing okay as well. I am so happy I read other reviews before my consultation because Dr. Maida and his team were accommodating and professional. Ana, another one of his staff members, was helpful and thorough too.

Patient Review By Mike G
While it's never fun to have a tooth removed I have to share that my experience with Dr. Maida and his staff was excellent. After a visit to the regular dentist, I was referred to Dr. Maida for an extraction. The office was able to fit me in the next day and perform a consultation and the extraction in one visit. Dr. Maida reviewed and confirmed the diagnosis then explained the procedure and anesthesia options. Everything went as expected, the discomfort was minimal and after a few days I was just fine. I would recommend Dr. Maida and will not hesitate to see him again should the need arise. Mike

Thank you Dr. Maida. You saved me. This pandemic made it really hard to see a dentist and my problem was very worrisome. Thank you for the blessed staff and attention during my evaluation, surgery, and after care. Thank you for personally checking on me after surgery and the staff also for checking on me. Bless you all with continued blessings for your practice.

Everyone in the office is sweet, well informed and patient focused. My consult, extraction and follow up were all handled with minimal wait time and with my comfort in mind. The doctor called personally the evening of surgery to check-in and the office was great at confirming, following up and answering all my questions.
