Patient Review By Karen
I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Madia and staff. I was very anxious about the appointment and any procedure, but Dr. Madia was very patient with me and spend a lot of time trying to calm me down, the staff was very helpful and kind and always available to help. Dr. Madia is very professional, He takes the time to explain what needs to be done and provides valuable advice , It's not easy to find a good dentist these days, I highly recommend Dr. Madia and his staff for YOUNG OR OLD.
Patient Review By Richard J
Dr. Maida is a highly trained and skilled surgeon. I felt comfortable and at ease with him from the get go. I could not be more pleased with his work and the results of my surgery. So glad my general dentist referred me to him. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Patient Review By Matthew J
The staff squeezed me in at the last minute, which I could not appreciate more. They move quickly in the office and you can tell everyone knows what they are doing. Dr. Maida is concise and direct. He explained to me what some possible outcomes might be and he scheduled me for a follow up. He made sure I understood how to get by until our next appointment. The one uncool thing he said was, "No solid foods until your jaw heals," but that's not his fault. I let it slide. 🙂
