Meet Our Doctor
Dentist in Richardson, TX
Jeffrey S. Lide, DDS
Dr. Lide received his dental degree in 1995 from Baylor College of Dentistry after graduating from The University of Texas at Arlington with a bachelor’s degree in Biology. In addition, to starting his successful practice from scratch in 1995, he served as an Associate Professor for six years at Baylor College of Dentistry. He has since been serving the community of Richardson, TX and surrounding areas with his expertise, professionalism, and pleasant chair-side manner.
Dr. Lide was born and raised in the great state of Texas and had intentions early on of having a private practice in the Richardson, TX area after obtaining his dental license. He continues to evolve with the cutting edge of dentistry by continuously attending advanced Continuing Education curriculum.
He is certified in Conscious Oral Sedation, which allows his patients to feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental visits. He is also certified in Laser Dentistry which helps assist with the reduction of bacteria by promoting faster healing while decreasing inflammation and discomfort during extensive dental procedures.
Dr. Lide is married and stays very busy with his four children, Mark, Madison, Mason, and Avery. Choosing a career that allows him to be skillful with his hands, was definitely a must for him, and you will soon understand why! In addition to spending time with his family, he enjoys painting and being outside in his garage. His hobby of building mini boats from scratch, racing and blowing it up, keeps him young at heart. If it breaks, no worries! Dr. Lide takes “it” apart, examines and fixes it while making it better in the process. During the COVID pandemic, the aerosol purifier machines were on high demand and lengthy backorder, not a problem for Dr. Lide! He and his brother-in-law, an engineer, built several for all the operatory rooms in the dental office – and built many others which have been purchased by other dental and medical professionals!
Q: “Dr Lide, what do you enjoy most about your dental practice?”
A: “The people, and getting to know my patients. I am blessed to have a dental practice with really great patients and a pleasant and experienced dental team. It sure makes going to work every day more enjoyable being surrounded by genuinely nice people… and that’s something I think is important and I have learned to never take for granted.”
