Born and raised in Venezuela, Dr. Lida Paez began her dental studies with a certified dental assistant (CDA) certificate. The faculty voted her Best Hands On Skills! She immediately went on to earn her bachelor’s degree in biology from Georgia Southern University. She then received her Doctor in Dental Medicine degree from Medical College of Georgia. As a dentist, she has worked in practices throughout Georgia, including Lilburn, Dallas, Marietta, Norcross, Dacula, and Tucker.
Thanks to her wide-ranging experience, Dr. Paez developed a terrific ability to make even the most anxious patients feel comfortable. She joined 3640 Dental, a practice that has been around for 50 years, in 2016. She enjoys practicing ethical dentistry, offering patient-centered care, and transforming her patients’ smiles into mini works of art that change their lives for the better. She also loves serving her community and helping people get healthier. Since she grew up in Venezuela, she is comfortable communicating with patients in both English and Spanish.
Dr. Paez is a member of the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and regularly participates in the Georgia Mission of Mercy, an annual two-day, no-charge dental clinic sponsored by the GDA Foundation for Oral Health that serves low- and no-income adults. Dr. Paez also participated in the TeamSmile event in 2018 alongside the Atlanta Falcons providing free dental services to underserved children at the Mercedes Benz Arena. She recently started supporting the Passion Soccer program in Norcross where Hispanic children are provided uniforms and facilities to practice sports and stay off the streets.
Outside of work, her favorite pastimes include playing volleyball and kickball, hanging out with her dogs, Bella and Aegon, and training in Capoeira, a type of martial art that uses elements of dance, acrobatics, and music.
