My son was born with a cleft lip and palate. Many of Dr Rider's patients have facial anomalies. Dr Rider works closely with renowned plastic surgeon David C. Matthews. Dr Rider has had amazing success with Tommy's teeth. They looked like Billy Bob teeth when Tommy was 6. He is now almost 14. Because of Dr Rider, Tommy has not had to have dental surgery, and although his treatment is not yet complete, his teeth are mostly straight and aligned. Dr Rider also has early morning appointments. We are able to be seen at 7 am, so Tommy doesn't miss school. I drive about 40 miles into Charlotte because the friendly, warm, trusting, skilled care at Dr Rider's office. Great insurance help too.
