I went to Dr. Whitesides today to have a tooth pulled and implant put in. It was quick and painless. The best part was his knowledge and time he spent on the explanation of what he was doing, what to expect during, and how he and his staff would good at making me feel at ease. The other part that was nice for me was the explanation of the after care. Tips on icing, how to eat, and what to do for pain management. I would recommend this office to anyone who wants an experienced professional, caring staff, and an overall great experience for a procedure that isn't fun. You won't feel rushed out until you are felling well enough and you will leave not feeling like you are on your own.

I always like a professional in a tie, even if I hate wearing them. I've had several procedures done with Dr. Whitesides, all biopsies, as I smoked for 20 years and cancer runs in my family, I act on anything out of the ordinary. I'm always in and out within the scheduled time, as well as the procedures going over very well all three times I've had minor work done. In fact the last biopsy on the tip of my tongue resulted in my chewing more where my wisdom teeth had been removed ten years earlier, inflamming and aggravating that previous condition. Upon looking at the issue he promptly scheduled a follow up appt to laser that defect that I'd been dealing with for years, at no additional charge. I mean cmon, free dental or medical work has never existed in my history, save for my impoverished twenties when I had to resort to Grady on occasion. Top notch service and professionalism I recommend Dr. Whitesides for procedures you may have come up, and he was highly recommended by my regular Dentist, Dr. Roger Abbott as well, who has one of the more successful practices in Sandy Springs and has for years.

I'm from Florida and attend Emory University in Atlanta so like many students I had an internship in Atlanta over the summer. Right around the middle of summer I found out I had to have my wisdom teeth removed. I simply went to the oral surgeon that the dentist I had visited suggested. Long story short AND I mean this is a long, long story. I ended up with a broken jaw and had to have my jaw wired shut for a month. Aside from being miserable, the most miserable part was not the pain and discomfort of my jaw. THE MOST MISERABLE PART WAS HAVING TO MEET WITH DR. WHITESIDES. Anytime I had to see him, it was too soon. The nurses and staff (aside from one impolite employee) are incredibly accommodating. Perhaps attempting to make up for Dr. Whitesides great ability to belittle you. He is rude, offensive, and lacks ANY sort of bed manners. Keeping in mind he broke MY jaw...he still managed to tell me I had bad breath (let's think about brushing our teeth with your jaw wired shut??) and tell me I could afford to lose a little weight (I'm a 21 year old in perfect health)...the list goes on. I suppose I should've sensed the vibes from him when I went in for my consultation and asked the costs of the procedure. I was was wearing an Emory shirt and his response to my inquiry was "Well you go to Emory so you shouldn't have any problem with the costs..." As a matter of fact, my entire tuition is paid for with financial aid. (Side note: Too hard to prove to sue him.)

I just wanted to say: My son is 18 and all 4 wisdom teeth extracted By Dr. Whitesides last Friday. By Saturday my son was eating steak and felt just fine. At our post op visit I had to tell Dr. Whitesides that in 30 years of being a dental assistant I have never seen a patient to have no complications and healing on the second day. It is my pleasure to recommend Dr. Lee Whitesides to any family in the area. Dr. Whitesides called my on Friday afternoon to check on my son. What a nice experience my family had with Dr. Whitesides and his WONDERFUL STAFF. Jennifer Riggs EDA
