We are committed to providing safe, quality, cutting-edge care to each of our patients.

Therefore, we are committed to giving every patient the time needed to answer questions, address concerns, and facilitate care. We will consult with international experts in pathology, dentistry, radiology, oncology, and plastic surgery to determine the optimum treatment approach.

I don't usually give 5 stars in every category but YES I did. I've had several surgeries and "shop" before I do. Dr Schlieve is highly skilled and did a great job removing a tumor and associated wisdom tooth. Other doctors indicated it was big problem, one wanted to remove an additional molar. I still have the molar and Dr Shlieve get his 5 stars. I have recommended Dr, Schlieve to friends.

Dr. Schlieve performed major jaw surgery on my wife. We were told that a highly skilled physican/dentist was coming to Dallas and that we should wait for him. When he came to examine my wife initially, he surveyed her problem and immediately told us what his plan of action was. I asked him how he could determine what he would do so quickly. He told us he had done this surgery 300 times and that he had studied her xrays and was confident my wife would be happy. Other tha
