The team at Atlas is great!  Very professional, efficient and pleasant.  I never have to wait when I have an appointment.   I was introduced to Atlas because my dental office merged with the Atlas team.  I was able to keep my dentist and gain the additional services that the other dentist can offer.  Thank you!!

I love this office. ( and I don’t like dentists!!!) Every single person in this office is kind, understanding and accommodating. I came in a recommendation of a friend and it’s the best decision I’ve made as far as my teeth. I have been embarrassed of my teeth in the past and never felt comfy going to the dentist. After my first visit I have had a different feeling and passion to visit the dentist regularly for cleanings and with all my needed work I will not hesitate to go. Can’t say enough positive things about every experience I’ve had here. If you are looking for a new experience in dentistry. Please try Atlas dental! Sincerely, Jeremy D

So glad to have found Atlas. Everyone that I’ve worked with since I’ve been going here has been super helpful, attentive and polite. They are very thorough – send text reminders, voice mails – they make sure you’re kept up to date. Location is very convenient for anyone working downtown. Highly recommended!

I love Atlas Dental!  Everyone (dentists, hygienists, front desk staff) is very nice and welcoming.  I really like that they invested in new equipment and technology to provide the best care possible.  In addition to regular check ups, I got Invisalign and Dr. Mara was great.  She explained the whole process in detail and the results were amazing.  I highly recommend Atlas Dental!

I have had a great experience at Atlas Dental! On your first visit the technicians and dentist do a thorough evaluation and intake, and really take time consider your needs and expectations. It is a modern facility that has new equipment, the staff is so friendly and knowledgeable, and the environment feels clean and safe. I would definitely recommend Atlas!

Amy M. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


Atlas Dental is by far the best dental experience I have had. They go above and beyond in patient care and quality of work. Dr. Mara is especially exceptional, thoroughly explaining and ensuring that all questions are answered. Do not wait to book an appointment! Switch to Atlas to start to look forward to the dentist, rather than dread it! -Amy Mahar

Atlas Dental Specialists have done an amazing job of taking care of my teeth. All of the doctors are highly skilled, friendly, and professional. The hygienists do perfect cleanings and the office staff is very helpful. The service is high-tech as well: digital photograhs you can see in real time. You can get text message and email appointment reminders. Atlas Dental Specialists have given me a happy and healthy

Atlas is such a great environment and the staff are all friendly! I used to have so much anxiety about coming to the dentist and between the scheduling process, the conversation to discuss treatment plans, the exams and any procedures I’ve had done have all been comfortable and make me feel like I’m actually overcoming my anxiety. I would recommend this office to anyone who feels nervous about the dentist!

Kathleen A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’d highly recommend Atlas Dental if you’re in the market for a new dentist! I was looking for a dentist here in Pittsburgh and am so happy that I found them. The staff is very kind, attentive, and knowledgeable. The office is modernized and has some very high tech equipment readily available. As a new patient they walked me through the “results” of my x-rays that we took at the start of my appointment. To ensure that what they were seeing was accurate we even did another small “tooth cam” x-ray that was able to capture things that the normal x-rays was not able to. The hygienist even found some remaining cement that remained from my braces (over 7 years ago!). From what they told me they are able to everything from your normal dentistry, dentures, to your more advanced procedures etc. As a new patient I needed new x-rays before I could get my cleaning and they said I would need to schedule two separate appointments for those. Luckily there was a last minute opening and I was able to get them back to back. Otherwise it would have been annoying/inconvenient to have to go twice, especially with taking time from work. This would be the only thing I didn’t like- but I believe it would only apply to new patients in the case that the date they want doesn’t have two back to back slots. Overall I’m very happy with Atlas and will recommend it to friends and fellow yelpers.

Unfortunately I put off a lot of work that needed done due to fear/hatred of going the dentist.  Atlas Dental truly makes the experience of going to the dentist pleasant!!!  The staff from the front office to the doctors are amazing!  I just finished a long implant procedure and I am 150% happy with the results.  I urge anyone who has put off doing what they need to do to call their office now.  There will be no unpleasant surprises (either with the work or the finance aspect).  Thanks again to Atlas Dental.

MaryJo R. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dental office!   The staff is friendly and courteous and always on time for my appointment.   They are not pushy about needed dental services and work with my annual benefit maximum so I have a minimum out-of-pocket costs.   Its great that they’ve expanded into invisalign so I can get all of my services at one place.   I have recommended this practice to friends in the past and will continue to do so.

I have been seeing Atlas Dental for several years. Best decision I’ve ever made. They are perfection! I had extensive dental work done a few years ago. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Over the course of 2/3 years they gave me the most beautiful smile I’ve ever had!! Incredible for someone who had been afraid of dentists as a child and young adult. They are the VERY BEST.

Erin M. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough good things about Mara and the team at Atlas Dental Specialists. First of all, they are knowledgeable and explain everything that is going on with my mouth as they’re working. Mara teaches dentistry at Pitt, and they’re always working on advancing their own knowledge of dentistry, which I think says a lot about a professional. They are so genuine and friendly. From the second you walk in, Stacie greets you with the warmth of an old friend, it’s a breathe of fresh air that I think many healthcare offices lack these days. They’re a family practice, and it’s clear that family matters, as they want to know about yours. I always leave feeling great!

Molly K. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


Atlas Dental is wonderful. The entire staff is friendly and easy to get along with. I work right downtown so it is convenient for me to be able to go to the dentist during my lunch break. I’ve had my teeth cleaned and gotten a couple fillings, and no appointments ever last for more than an hour. The doctors and staff are knowledgeable and are able to answer any questions I have. I reccommend Atlas to all of my coworkers, and they’ve been impressed with their service as well.

Nate M. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


The dentists help you every step of the way. They want your teeth to be as healthy as you want them. They also provide payment plans if you’re financial status requires it. The dental hygienists are very nice and very knowledgeable about new products and procedures to improve healthy teeth and gums.

Hadn’t been to a dentist in a while due to anxiety. I did some research and found Atlas Dentist. So glad I chose them. They have state of the art equipment and practices. There was never any pain during or after work being done. It was quite surprising and relieving. Extremely friendly staff and owners as well. Another plus – they want to make you better in the most cost-effective way as well. No anxiety anymore.

Kathleen B. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


I’m smiling again.  I am so happy I walked through the door of 1520 Park Building.  It took me a long time to do it because I am — by my own admission — a big baby when it comes to going to the dentist.  When I see the photos (yes photos) of my teeth from that first visit, I want to gag.  Not only did she restore my teeth, she restored my smile.  I will never switch dentists as long as she is practicing.  Her staff, from Beverly, the receptionist, to Stacy, her technician, and every hygienest, are all so friendly and reassuring. They make me feel so special when I am there and, believe, I was there a lot!  If you are in need of a dentist, and a smile, do not hesitate to call them.  You will not be sorry!

Atlas Dental Specialists provides superb dental care. I have been going there for over 20 years for everything from cleanings to crowns, and I would recommend it to anyone no matter what kind of care you need. Angela is a great hygienist — friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable; Mara is a wonderful dentist with similar qualities; and Stacey, Eve, and the other practice staff all do a great job and make you feel welcome and well-cared for.

Atlas Dental is the best dental experience I have received thus far. They are kind, professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. The office is cleanly, and welcoming. In a time where there was so much fear around the safety of the worlds health, I felt I was in great hands when needing routine dental hygienic work. I would recommend to anyone!

Kristen S. from McKeesport, PA (Source: Yelp)


I started going to Atlas dental last year when my old dental office closed and recommended this place. I did not have a good experience with the front desk on my first visit but decided to go back for my next visit anyway. The dental hygienist, Alice, is the most wonderful and kind hygienist I have ever come across. She was the reason I decided to give this place another shot after having a bad experience. She is very thorough and gentle when cleaning your teeth and explains evrything she is doing. After she is finished she gets the dentist who is also a very kind and knowledgeable man. I would definitely recommend this place and specifically Alice to future clients.

Mattia C. from East Liberty, East Liberty, PA (Source: Yelp)


Atlas Dental is by far the best dental practice that my wife and I have ever been to. Dr. Mara is incredibly thorough and prepared. She is also very clear in communicating what kind of work needs to be done, the timing associated with it, and the reasons why. All of the assistants that we have had the pleasure of meeting at Atlas Dental are very welcoming and they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The staff at the front desk is very helpful and they make sure to answer all questions regarding costs, insurance, payments, etc. (special shoutout to Eve!).

I’ve been going here for over 20 years. It feels more like a fun family reunion whenever I go back twice a year for my visits. I never dread going for my check ups. Everyone is personable and engaging. They have grown or expanded the last few years, but the personalized treatment has remained the same. Even my daughter enjoys going in for her checkups. Shout out to Angela for being so awesome!

I have been a patient at Atlas Dental for a little less than a year and am a patient of Dr. Mara. I inquired as I wanted to close some gaps and refine my smile and Dr. Mara and Spencer for me all set up with Invisalign. These two together are the dream team! They have been exceptional and the service I receive every time I go in is top notch. They explain everything to me before any procedure and answer all my questions to make me feel comfortable! I go back on Thursday to receive my crown to complete my new smile and I cannot wait to see how it turns out!! The front office staff is amazing as well. I have to shout out Robin and Eve as they have helped me tremendously when it came to billing. I HIGHLY recommend Atlas Dental to anyone in the Pittsburgh area looking for a dentist!

I had visited Atlas Dental about one month ago (07/21) for an immediate cavity drilling on my front tooth. I had called on a Sunday & got it done that Tuesday. They show great urgency to improve your dental care. Me personally, I don’t not have healthcare. They had a woman come in and break down the cost of exactly each thing that needed done. They were very professional! The communication & professionalism from Atlas Dental is unmatched. Will return!

Violet V. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


The hygienists are very good professionals, highly competent, and I appreciate those qualities. I am very pleased and relieved that the oral hygiene procedure was very gentle and pleasant. The comprehensive exam by Dr. Duncan & Dr. Mangini are very good – both ladies rocks !!! is a new dental experience and well worth the information for the patient. There is no question I made the right decision in becoming patient at Atlas Dental. The entire staff is comprised of friendly, attentive, professional team members.

Paul W. from Confluence, PA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a dental phobic who had a long history with a wonderful dentist who retired. Over the past five years, I’ve searched for a new dentist who had the same understanding of what the fear of dental procedures involves with a patient and how those concerns are best handled. I finally found such a dentist. Not simply a dentist, but a whole staff who works to make the experience as positive as possible. The office is welcoming, they work to explain what will be done and ease my trepidation as much as possible. Thanks for the understanding atmosphere.

Rachel P. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


The Staff at Atlas Dental are extremely friendly & professional! I have been a patient for 8 years now and I have recommended so many of my family & friends to there office who now also love there experiences. From teeth whitening/cleaning to my dental implant, I have become more confident in my smile and get a ton of compliments. I like how Atlas Dental educates me on my dental hygiene and always offers the latest technology and services!

Kat G. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


I have always been afraid of dentists and have avoided them for large lengths of time. After being recommended by (several) coworkers to go to Atlas, I finally did. Upon arrival, I felt embarrassed and shameful about avoiding my dental health for so long. The staff at Atlas never made me feel that way. The office is warm and welcoming and all of the staff are very friendly; they had me laughing most of my visit! When I returned for a cleaning, it was easy and comfortable. They’re professional but relatable. I look forward to my next cleaning and really thank the Atlas team for finally being the dentists I actually WANT to see!

I went here after sitting with a root canal for a couple weeks. My dentists weren’t picking up the phone and never called me back. I found atlas while searching for relief and in my first visit they got me on the right antibiotics and scheduled me for my root canal within a week. They were amazing then and every time since I’ve been back. Everyone is super friendly, and it’s very comforting

Terelynn Turner (Source: Google)


I’m a new patient with a variety of dental issues. They made me feel welcome, and secure, going over the plan they thought would work the best for my needs. One tooth, unfortunately didn’t make it until the appointment. They were able to get me in, and start on the necessary work ASAP! Professional and friendly staff. Extremely grateful to have found them.

Jennifer P. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


Following a couple of bad experiences I avoided the dentist for longer (a few years) than anyone should! At the recommendation of a colleague — along with a push from my husband — I made an appointment with Atlas Dental. First of all, they were SO accommodating. My husband and I scheduled our first consultation at the same time which meant we had to take our 9-month-old with us! Everyone at the office welcomed all three of us with warmth and patience. As for my fears of the dental process…this was the first dentist that ever asked what I had hoped to get out of the experience. Before looking inside my mouth they took the time to get to know me. Dentistry and empathy. Perfect! And when they got to poking around inside my mouth the experience was the best dental experience I have ever had. They were patient, precise, and took the time to explain what was happening. I would recommend Atlas Dental to anyone, but especially to those who have been reluctant to see a dentist due to anxiety or a negative past experience.

I cannot say enough good things about Atlas Dental Specialists. Dr. Duncan-Friedman and Drs. Mangini are the most talented, professional and overall wonderful people you will ever come across. They take their profession seriously and provide top notch service. I have had a lot of dental work over the years from various dentists in Ohio where I am from. It wasn’t until I became a patient at Atlas Dental that I fully realized what it meant to have faith in your dentist. The dental work is of the utmost highest quality work I have ever come across anywhere. They will examine you and be honest and forthright about your dental needs. They do not judge and understand that dental work can be expensive. They work with you even if it means waiting a bit to finish the project. It’s a team effort. Together, we made a plan of action and it took a while because even though I have insurance, I still had some out of pocket expenses. They were willing to go the distance with me no matter how long it took. The office staff are just fabulous. They are all very personable individuals and always want to know how I am when I get there. They are always willing to make sure you have the right appointment, answer any questions you have and provide excellent customer service. Every dental assistant & dental hygienist since I have been going there absolutely knows what they are doing and that gives me confidence that I chose the right place. By going to Atlas Dental, you are relaxed while in the chair and you do not have to worry that something will go wrong because you have a team of professionals in your corner. If you are sitting there reading this review because your tooth hurts and you need a dentist, look no further. Just pick up the phone. They don’t have to help you, they WANT to help you.

I’ve been going here for a almost 2 years now and I continue to be impressed with the people and the work they provide. I recently had a filling come out and they got me in the very next morning. I think the coolest thing I’ve experienced is their 3D tooth printer where you essentially start and finish a crown in one visit and it’s a perfect fit.

Some of us of a certain age hate change, but when my previous dentist retired I moved to Atlas. They have been fantastic, seeing me through a root canal and a couple of fillings; always treating me with care and respect. I trust them completely to do what needs to be done in the best possible way. Their administrative staff is super friendly and they are always ready to answer my questions in a clear fashion. I highly recommend Atlas Dental.

Today was my first experience with Atlas Dental and I am excited to say that I will definitely be going back! From the moment I arrived the staff was warm and welcoming. I knew ahead time that this visit would only be x-rays since it’s been a while since I’ve had them done and it was in a different state. Eve was upbeat when asking me questions about my dental history and then we got to talking about my upcoming wedding. I felt very comfortable tasking with everyone that I saw today. After my screening and having photos taken of all my teeth (so cool to see) I was told that they could fit me in with a cleaning that same day. I know this isn’t the norm but I was more than happy to not have to make a shirt follow up visit. As I was leaving after my cleaning, one of the receptionists noticed I didn’t have an umbrella and it was getting ready to rain. She graciously asked if I wanted one because they had some extras! Such a thoughtful group of people who deserve the excellent reviews they currently have!
