Stacie S. from Springfield, LA (Source: Yelp)


My 9 yr old had a dental emergency and Dr.Anderson went above and beyond for my son. He was really friendly and knew exactly what to do. As a mom i felt at ease with his expertise. He and the rest of Mid city crew were amazing. I can’t say enough good things . Experience, knowledge and a great attitude! The trifecta of dentistry ! 100/10 !

Wonderful experience for both normal cleaning, as well as emergencies. We so appreciate the staff, hygienists and dentists. We see MidCity Smiles for general cleaning (and were always pleased) and never had an emergency until today. Wow! They took amazing care of our daughter’s cracked tooth, with gentle, reassuring care of a distraught child with beautiful results. Thank you!!!

Great patient service and so many friendly faces. I like the new technologies they have to take pictures of the teeth and the X-ray. They always have a solution for any issues with your teeth. My whole family goes to Mid-City Smiles. Highly recommended.

Cynthia R. from Laplace, LA (Source: Yelp)


Mid-City Smiles by far the best dentist around. The staff is very professional and cater to your needs. Dr. Anderson cares about his patients and is willing to go beyond and above.  Furthermore, Dr. Anderson is a Invisalign top rated dentist and will make sure your smile is Hollywood grade.  I highly recommend this facility hands down.  COV-19 compliance with super clean environment.

My husband had an abscess on a Friday night. Dr. Anderson personally called and made sure he was seen Saturday and worked with Dr. Hernandez on the proper care he should receive. They entire team of receptionists, hygienists, and doctors were very attentive and compassionate. My husband said especially Dr. Hernandez. Our family would definitely recommend this practice to all of our friends & family.

I highly recommended Mid-City smiles to all friends and family! They are always so professional and very fast. I receive an email and text days before the appointment to assure I am there on time. I usually only wait about 5-10 minutes in the waiting room. I personally see Dr. Marin. Most visits are quick and easy. Dr. Marin is very informative and  knowledgeable. I was a nervous going in because my first language is Spanish so it is sometimes hard for me to understand but Dr. Marin’s spanish background made our communication easy. He is truly one of the best!

Carlos S. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


Had insurance for about a two weeks more after getting suddenly laid off, went to Mid City Smiles to get two caps redone and deep teeth cleaning. Was worried that my insurance would run out before fixing and cleaning my teeth. Mid-City Smiles understood my situation and worked with me and after a week, my teeth are in great shape. Very satisfied. Staff is very professional and polite. I enjoyed everything about how they treated me. I highly recommend them.

Excellent, comfortable, professional service every time I’m there. The atmosphere is relaxed as well and the whole staff is among the friendliest I’ve ever experienced in health care. Also possibly the most attractive professional office I have ever personally encountered. I honestly look forward to returning, and I don’t mind spending extra time there

Lauren R. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


I was so angry during the first presidential debate this year that I chipped a tooth. No joke. I decided to go here to get it fixed because I had read so many good reviews online and they fit me in right away.I’m so glad I did because–after a lifetime of dentist appointments and oral surgeries, braces, bridges, and false teeth–I have to say that this was the most pleasant dentist appointment of my life. The staff was prompt, professional, and kind. The hygienist was gentle and thorough. The dentist, Dr. Anderson, was excellent as well as funny and caring. The WWOZ music was a perfect touch. Thanks, MidCity Smiles! You have a new devotee.

Jumana I. from Gretna, LA (Source: Yelp)


The place is very clean, the staff are super friendly and the location is very convenient to me. I was recommended to get my Invisalign from one of the staffs who work there, Houria. Also another staff, Thao, she had walked me through on how to put on and take them off which was super easy. & Dr. Anderson is super awesome with his patients and the customer service excellent! Thanks Everyone. Y’all rock!!!

For someone who gets anxiety going to the dentist its has become a place that i enjoy taking care of my smile. Shannon had Angel hands my cleaning went so smoothly and Dr. Anderson makes the experience of a dental visit fun and smooth… the staff members are wonderful very polite and helpful in anyway possible .. clean and tidy office environment. Definitely found my place . They work with you in every way.

Emily L. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Anderson and the team at Mid-City Smiles for about 10 years. They’re easy to find in Midcity and have parking in the back, which is a plus! The office is well appointed with local art and WWOZ playing in the radio. The exam rooms are spotless and I always get into my appointments quickly. My favorite part is that they send reminder texts about appointments. Since they’re a busy office, it’s often difficult to get an appointment rescheduled, so, the reminders help in making sure I get there! My husband also goes here and recently had to have a broken crown fixed on a weekend. It was a breeze! I have recommended so many people here that every time I have an appointment, it’s like a reunion in the waiting room.

Naomi L. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Great experience. The office is right off Canal near the Womac law building (have never been inside, but I always see that office/house for some reason). They have dedicated parking off to the side. There was plenty of street parking, however, so I just parked on Canal. Inside, the decor is relaxing with an open layout and the bilingual staff is a nice plus. Mostly, I just appreciated that they didn’t judge my coffee/tea stained teeth. Melissa did a great job and it wasn’t awful (after not going for 2+ years, I thought my teeth would be much worse!). They reviewed my xrays and the doc came in to check for any potential spots I’d need a fix up. Overall, very professional. I was in and out, once I got to the cleaning part, in about 40 minutes. I will definitely be back in 6x months for a regular cleaning and will recommend this place to co-workers/friends who have the same insurance. Hints: Saturday hours! If you cancel w/in 24 hours, they will charge you (you’ll sign paperwork on it when you are in-house) – which is a great idea. They send you a text message reminder of your appt, which is helpful.

Previous difficulties in contacting a good orthodontist have been resolved period. Fast, efficient, attentive, detailed, professional services with affordable braces for both of my teenage children. Time will tell what happens next, but it does not get any better than this. The crescent city is blessed to have this little jewel. Best choice made so far.

The entire staff is always very friendly and Dr Anderson is a great dentist. The office is very nice and very well maintained. Dr Anderson has all of the latest equipment and I trust him completely. Couldn’t ask for a better dental office. I highly recommend them.

Han P. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


We have been to Mid City Smiles for years. My daughter has been to Mid City Smiles since she was born. I like the staff and the dentist. She dental hygenist here was the first one who actually took the time to show me how to clean my teeth properly, stroke by stroke. I also like that they have Saturday appointment and they call me to remind me about my appts.

Bernard Waldmann (Source: Google)


From the moment we walked in we were impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. We loved the local art and music. We were seen on time and all our concerns were heard and addressed. We went in feeling nervous, but we won’t ever feel that way again. We would easily and gladly recommend this place to anyone (and already have). Thank you!

I was referred to Dr. Anderson by my neighbor who has been a patient of his for numerous years. Dr. Anderson is an exceptional dentist. He’s truely caring, professional and an expert in his field. I am extremely satisfied with the services I received. He gave me my smile back in a relatively short time frame; I highly recommend him. My office visits were pleasant, his staff members were professional yet welcoming. His office is impeccably clean and you feel at ease. I am more than happy I took my neighbors advice and choose Mid City Smiles and Dr. Anderson.

Heather Cheesbro (Source: Google)


I love my dentists! The last appointment was an emergency and they got me in Very quickly even though I am a year and a half over due for a check up. They do not upsell you, they are professional at the same time laid back. Staff is great, art and music are great. I highly recommend. Right on canal with plenty of parking.

Hello, I wanted to express my most sincere appreciation to Dr. Anderson, Magda, and the Krewe at Mid City Smiles.  They have been taking care of my dental care needs for over 10 years now and each experience has special.  All of the staff are very friendly and accomodating in explaining anything you want to know.  It’s easy to make an appointment and there are helpful reminder’s sent prior to the appointment.  The wait time for the appointment is minimal.  The office is conveniently located and is decorated in a welcoming manner.  And with WWOZ playing in the background, how can one not feel comfortable.  For me that is important as I have “dental office ” anxiety.  I highly recommend Mid City Smiles to anyone to who is looking for a dental care provider that goes the extra mile to make your experience as favorable as possible. Kudos and Thanx!!! :):)

Glenn C. from Kenner, LA (Source: Yelp)


Mid City Smiles is a great dental office. I get reminded of my appointment days in advance which helps me because I always forget. Visits are very pleasant and the work is always done in a timely fashion with the patients’ best interest. Some people on here just don’t appreciate the quality services that are provided by this great establishment. Anyone who says otherwise is a complete fool. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quality product!

Debra Gilmore (Source: Facebook)


The Medical Assistant greeted me with a smile and was very polite. The dental assistant was professional and knowledgeable when X-Raying my gums and teeth. I like they had a dentist to clear the teeth and other to diagnose the problems. Now that A-1 Dental Care.

JP Melton (Source: Google)


I have never been to a better dentist or dental practice in my 55 years. I found the Mid City Smiles staff friendly and accommodating. Dr. Anderson took time to put me at ease, regarding a complicated procedure, and performed it flawlessly. His skill level for doing implants is second to none. I highly recommend Dr. Anderson and Mid City Smiles!!

New in town and had a dental emergency on my hands. My insurance company listed this office (amongst others) as a provider so I called and booked an appointment for a week out, their first opening. The nice lady on the phone said they’re currently reconfirming appointments for the next day, and if they had a cancellation they would let me know. Not 20 minutes later, I got a call and an opening for the next day was available. Thrilled, I scooped it up. The office is very high tech, digital X-rays they can immediately see, very nice staff and Dr Mark Anderson was a joy. I highly recommend

Kristy D. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve honestly never thought I’d take the time to write a good review for a dentist’s office, but I really have to share how awesome this place is. I’m going to be a walking advertisement for them now. Let me just list the reasons you should make them your dental office: 1. Kind and Upbeat staff-from the initial phone call to the end of my appointment, I was treated like a friend. With care and understanding. 2. NO JUDGEMENT, only great advice for how to care best for your teeth 3. I had ZERO wait time 4. Saturday appointments (perfect for working mamas!) 5. Super clean and relaxing environment– they were playing awesome New Orleans music the entirety of my visit and I looked down over Canal Blvd. 6. They are up front about how much your insurance will cover and always try to make your dental work affordable! Can’t say enough. Just come see for yourself

Mije J. from Central Business District, New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying the service and support I receive from the Mid-City Smiles is amazing! The staff is always very professional, nice, and follows up. Dr. Anderson squeezed me in his schedule for an emergency root canal which had me very uncomfortable with pain. After the procedure I was immediately relieved of pain and his team made sure to follow up. I’m very happy with the service, procedure, and pain management I received. Thank you.

Portia W. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


Just moved here a year ago and needed a good dentist with my annual cleaning this place delivered today! From making sure that my mouth was numb due to hot and cold sensitivity to the rapid detailed teeth cleaning and professionalism this office exhibited. Before I left I made an appointment for my daughter and she’s actually excited to go! Highly recommend the dental hygienist and Dentist in this office. Well done

Angel A. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I trust the Mid City Smiles staff with the care of my family of four! They are an awesome family dentistry with quality customer service and level of care. My brother in law even attends the same office to upkeep and maintain his braces! Genesis, the receptionist, is awesome and always provides quality customer service with a friendly smile.

Caroline Knecht Perrin (Source: Google)


Dr. Anderson and his staff are excellent! The entire staff is wonderful, and he is so patient, friendly and kind at each visit. Dr. Anderson takes the time to educate patients thoroughly about treatments and discuss your concerns and options best for you. My smile is often complimented and others cannot tell I have a veneer at the front. I definitely recommend this office to everyone searching for a genuine dentist with high quality skills.

Ellery M. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


Just moved to New Orleans a couple of months ago and needed to find a new dentist. Mid-City Smiles had the best rating on Yelp so I figured I’d get an appointment there. I called on a Monday and they asked if they could fit me in that Wednesday! I’ve never been able to book an appointment that fast! Their location is great and they have a convenient parking lot. The building layout is a little confusing and I ended up having to back track after finding out I was on the third floor. I got there early to fill out paperwork but they were ready for me early too. My hygienist, Sarah, was so kind and gave her honest opinion when I asked for it. The x-rays were quick and they use a high pressure water pick instead of the metal scraper. Sarah worked really quickly and painlessly. The dentist was nice and made sure I didn’t have any questions before I left. The fluoride treatment was brushed on so it was quick and painless. Mid-City Smiles has kind staff and technology that makes the cleaning quick and painless. I had my cleaning finished in 45 minutes. See you in 6 months!

I wanted to really get a feel for this office before I wrote a review. I admit, I get extremely nervous when I go to the dentist, but I felt very much at ease here. I came because of so many great reviews, and I’m so glad I did. As long as I am in New Orleans, this will be my dentist’s office. You’re immediately greeted as you arrive and check in. Because this place is so busy, unless you are going for your first visit, I wouldn’t make a big effort to be super early. On your first visit, there is paperwork to complete. Once called in, you’re taken to a station, seated, and we did x-rays my first time. My hygienist was extremely nice, there was really good music playing, so I was at ease. The cleaning was quick, and then Dr. Anderson came in to take a look. So friendly, went over my x-rays with me to tell me what I might need moving forward, and even touched up a couple of spots. We planned future appointments, and when I asked about the possibility of Invisalign for me, Dr. Anderson gave me immediate feedback and provided notes to the front desk for a quote. They itemized how much would be due and at what appointment, and the plan for the process is 6-8 months faster than what I was expecting. This place is constantly busy, which might feel intimidating, but I really think it is because they get such a high demand. I did have to book two months ahead for the dates I wanted, but they can still squeeze you in if there is something serious going on. I’ve already referred two colleagues, and they are now spreading the news as well. This place is worth trying!

I recommend Mid-City Smiles: professional, pleasant, clean, efficient, great staff, cool music, excellent location with parking. Dr. Anderson and Sarah exceeded my expectations as a first timer. Merci!

Suzanne R. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


We have chosen MidCity Smiles for all of my family’s dental needs. We use them for orthopedic as well. I have had a lot of dental issues in my life and this place has been the best place that I  have been in my 46 years on this earth. I appreciate every single person that works there. 6 stars if I could!

Sally Hoffmann (Source: Google)


I love this place! Every person there is friendly and professional. I’ve had two of the three dentists and both are excellent. Every dental hygienist I’ve encountered was excellent. Dr. Anderson is currently doing a tooth implant for me and he is kind, gentle, and informative through the process. I definitely recommend Mid City Smiles!
