Approach

After having worked with several of the top world renowned dentists throughout New York City, in 2011 Dr. Mann decided it was time to achieve his vision by opening Smile Arts of NY on E. 40th between Madison and Park Ave. Originally born in Ukraine, when communism collapsed his family took the opportunity to pursue the American Dream and moved to New York. Dr. Peter Mann has lived in New York ever since, for the last 25 years. His goal is to provide an excellent dental experience for his fellow New Yorkers. "Dentistry is constantly evolving and only by continuing to seek more knowledge I can provide the best care for my patients." Dr. Mann has completed over a thousand hours of continuing education in cosmetic, implant, and sedation dentistry. In 2009 Dr. Mann received a fellowship award from the prestigious International Congress of Oral Implantology. "I love my profession. I love the technical challenges I face each day and enjoy the interactions that I have with my patients. It is especially rewarding at the end of a difficult visit getting a thank you from the patient because they know we care about them and take immense pride in the care we provide." Dr. Mann lives minutes from his office. Patients undergoing treatment have his cell phone number and can always get in touch with any questions or concerns. It's not unusual to see Dr. Mann arriving after hours to help a patient with an emergency.

How was your experience with the doctor?Very nice all female experience at Smile Arts. I found Dr. Chen on my insurance's website list of doctors and called ahead to make sure she took my insurance. (I've been burned before!) all went well once I was there. I was taken in on time and after some analog paperwork, saw the dentist assistant who prepped me, then the dentist who walked me through how the rest of my visit would go. As at first visit, the assistant x-rayed my teeth, then I received a thorough cleaning from the hygienist and the doctor came back in to discuss my X-rays. She let me know that my insurance covered a night guard or a replacement Invisalign (which I mentioned I had lost about a year prior). I chose the latter and she molded my teeth and I left. Picked up a week or two later and they seem fine. I'd say I recommend them. Definitely got a crazy explanation of benefits, but they told me that was insurance being insurance and I didn't need to worry about that portion, so I was indeed covered, despite the scare.

How was your experience with the doctor?Worst place ever. They do more damage than help, charge a lot of money for very poor work. Stay away because you will end up going to a different dentist anyway to fix their mistakes.

How was your experience with the doctor?Toni and Stephanie were wonderful - and dealing with the front desk was a breeze. Had a general cleaning and exam, and took advantage of their whitening special to great success. Very happy with results, and happy with the team!

How was your experience with the doctor?It’s always a professional experience when visiting Dr. Mann’s office. I am always seen within minutes after arriving for my appointment, Dr. Mann makes sure to come in and greet me during the initial consultation. X rays are taken expediently and then the actual teeth cleaning begins. His assistants are always friendly as well. Music is played while the teeth cleaning is going on which helps lighten the atmosphere. Dr. Mann is thorough but not rough to the point of making the process uncomfortable during the cleaning. I always feel like my teeth are in good, capable hands when I go to him. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new dentist. He is courteous, professional, efficient and knowledgeable. All qualities that I think make him a great dentist.

How was your experience with the doctor?Would not go back here- front desk is extremely rude when inquiring about the zoom whitening and other services I would have been interested in. It was my second visit to this clinic and definitely got treated very differently from my first visit (maybe because I was a new client?). On my 2nd cleaning, they didn't schedule the zoom whitening (purposely unless you ask for it), and when asked, they said I can schedule separate from my cleaning appt that day and come back for it. The front desk girl basically told me that the only availability was during the weekdays between 9am-5pm because it will use up the doctor's time during the weekend (which is "peak" time of the week). Hmm.. 1. My first cleaning appt with them 6 months back was on a Saturday, which included the zoom 2. I wasn't aware that the doctor had to be present during whitening only? He was certainly not present last time.They clearly made it difficult for me to schedule the whitening part during the middle of work hours which I'm not about to take a half day to whiten my teeth, so I said forget it. She was also rude af when answering questions regarding invisalign process SO I'd rather take my dental business to a clinic that is MUCH, MUCH closer to where I live, with friendlier staff that understands the word "customer service"!The only reason I trekked all the way to SmileArts in the beginning because of the whitening package that came along with the cleaning, but tbh the whitening is not great and I noticed the teeth cleaning the 2nd time around was not thorough as the 1st. Beware ya'll.

How was your experience with the doctor?I needed to get my smile "holidays ready" and decided to pay these guys a visit. And let me tell you, these good reviews don't lie! :) Scheduling an appointment over the phone was easy + there was a very short amount of wait before they took me to the room! Separate thanks to a hygienist Aliya, she was very sweet and super informative. They do except a wide variety of payments + certain plans of insurance.  Do not hesitate to try them out!

How was your experience with the doctor?Unbelievable. I booked an appointment via ZocDoc with this provider, as I also saw he offered teeth whitening and wanted to purchase those services as well. I immediately get a threatening text message to cancel my appointment unless I provided my insurance details before 4pm, which I COMPLETELY COMPLIED WITH. They decided to cancel my appointment anyway. Find another provider.

How was your experience with the doctor?First of all, he was not nice. His bedside manner was awful and he scolded me at one point. This I would have forgiven. But then the cavity he filled never stopped hurting. It's been six months and the constant tenderness is now out and out pain. I'm having to go to an emergency appointment with someone else. You can't be a mean doctor and a bad doctor. you have to pick one. I will say the hygienist who did the cleaning was really nice.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've been seeing Dr. Mann for years now. I've always had great experiences. It's very easy to get an appointment and I've been in and out for a cleaning in as little as 25 minutes. He's filled cavities for me and done the zoom whitening; all great. I spend most of my time living in another state now, but I still schedule my dentist appointments around when I will be in NY just to come to Smile Arts.

How was your experience with the doctor?Got a cleaning/check up done yesterday. A little nervous after reading the reviews as I was fitted for a night guard but was informed it would be fully covered so I'll report back if there's any funny business.Great visit, very modern interior including the waiting room and the treatment rooms. There had to be at least 8 rooms that hygienists could work in. I worked with Toni who was super nice, had The Weeknd playing in background as she polished my teeth, took around 15 mins in total. She informed me that I grind my teeth which after my visit I started noticing that I do quite often. I was fitted for a night guard and had a brief visit with the dentist. I'll be back in a week to pick up the guard. Awesome experience and very close to my office so I'll definitely be back!

How was your experience with the doctor?Have been a patient for 10 years. First came for a teeth whitening promo. I liked that Dr Mann was the only dentist at the time who wasn't pressuring me to remove my wisdom teeth (I still have all 4). I'm always seen quickly and the cleaning is fast. He's also very friendly. Highly recommend

How was your experience with the doctor?*record scratch*How misleading. When I first scheduled my appointment it was said that they were In Network. Though they have themselves advertised as being in network on Zocdoc, I of course I chose to verify this so there would be no surprises. They called me and confirmed. Well, HA! Two bills later and it was discovered that this was a lie. Not only was it a lie but they also made sure to give me X-rays to "check on things" for both dental cleanings, boosting the price. How fraudulent. I would also like to add that they are now ignoring all emails related to this. My next contact with them will be for them to forward all my records to a new dentist, even if I have to show up in person. How bogus.

How was your experience with the doctor?Absolutely love this dentist practice. I have been coming for years and could not be a happier patient. Historically, I have needed a lot of dental work but this is not a place that is in for the sell. I came to Smile Arts after I went to another Manhattan dentist and was told I need a full list of work, came to Dr Man who confirmed everything looked great and no work was required, have never looked back since. I love the cleaning and since sticking to my 6-month visits have not had any teeth issues, cavities. It's hard to find a dentist practice in NY as many are just looking for ways to pay their rent, this is not true of Smile Arts. Book your apt now, you will be happy.

How was your experience with the doctor?As another reviewer wrote, this practice just wants to up sell you.  As the dentist made it a point to mention my vest right away I already felt I was being "sized up" before we even got started and deemed a good candidate to sell to.  And Yes I have insurance as an added bonus for them.   But I clearly made the appointment to have a tooth that had a root canal done 8 years ago looked at.  Oddly enough I was confused when she said.  Ok so you are here for a cleaning ? They continued to run all these tests for my whole mouth not just the tooth in question etc clean my teeth and said my tooth in question was fine.  Strange because it's still in pain and there's no way I am paying them to do the laundry list of unnecessary procedures they wanted me to.  Ignoring the main reason I came in.   Didn't feel professional or that the dentist was knowledgeable.   If you are gullible and want to throw away money.  Go here.  They will take it.

How was your experience with the doctor?I never leave reviews on anything.  But I feel the need to in this situation as it's important to find a good dentist.   I went to smile arts dentist to fix my front tooth that cracked. I know the best choice is to get a crown.  But not everyone can afford a crown right away. So I got a temporary bonding done. I spent $450 on a temporary bonding that broke the next day.    This dentist did a bad job on this bonding.  I know it's temporary.  But I know it should last longer then a day.   They expect me to pay another $450 to fix the bad job that they done. Which I find absolutely crazy.    I will never go back to this dentist again. They are extremely rude and not understanding what so ever.  If you need any cosmetic work done I advise all to go elsewhere.
