Overall excellent visit. Wish I didn’t live 60 miles North in Willis Texas but I am retired and living on a lake in my house I built now!

Dr. Maida and the team at Houston Oral Surgery did a fantastic job with my wisdom teeth extractions. They were kind and communicative before, during, and following up after the procedure. The surgical team did a great job keeping me comfortable and healthy during and after the procedure. I couldn’t ask for more!

Patient Review By Edward S
My experience with this dentist office was exceptional. Lily was awesome and she really made me feel at ease. Dr. Maida was a miracle worker. I was in excruciating pain and he recognized it and he handled it. And I’m so grateful for that. My tooth extraction was painless and he actually called me later that evening and checked on me to make sure all was well. Well all was well Dr. M and it’s all because of your exceptional work. I thank the Lord for leading me there. Also Heather thank you for being so polite and helpful. The entire office staff from the front desk to the back where I had my procedure was awesome and professional. Again I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. I pray that the Lord bless each of you richly. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Patient Review By Samantha M
Dr. Maida made me feel so at ease and answers all my questions with explanation. Going to the dentist is scary as it is, but having teeth extracted is unnerving.

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. 🙂
