Thank you Dr Mello and Staff for the great experience at my appointment yesterday!! For anyone who needs dental expertise or who doesn’t feel comfortable going to the dentist, you need to see Dr Mello! She has outstanding credentials and experience and listens to your concerns. Dr Mello makes the entire process easy and painless not to mention that my teeth look awesome! Her entire staff is professional and super friendly. I highly recommend NYC Smile to everyone!

Dr Mello and Dr Tabib are hands down THE BEST dentists! I have been a patient for many years and I can honestly say the quality of care you receive here you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Their office is spotless, professional and equipped with the most up to date equipment. Believe me, you will not be disappointed if you trust them to make your smile healthy and beautiful.

The BEST dentists in the biz. Dr Tabib & Dr. Mello are the only people that are allowed to touch my teeth. I’ve been to many dentists over the years and none of them were able to help me. I’ve been going to NYC Smile Design for about 1 year and not only do my teeth look amazing but, my jaw & alignment look incredible. Every time I see my friends and family, they are always complimenting me on my smile. If you are looking for the top dentists in the industry, I HIGHLY recommend NYC smile design❤️

I have been a patient of Dr. Mello for 3 years. It has been a wonderful experience for me. Dr. Mello is a superb clinician and made my smile not only beautiful but healthier and more comfortable than it had been in years. Dr. Mello and her staff are so helpful. There were never any surprises about billing- everything was explained to me before my treatment began.

NYC Smile Design is fantastic! The doctors and staff are so professional and friendly, and they make you feel well taken care of. Their office uses the latest tech, and overall has a really nice ambiance – cool jazz music, aromatherapy in the waiting room, espresso machine- what’s not to like? I can only highly recommend Dr. Mello and Dr. Tabib’s office.

A friend of mine referred me to NYC Smile and I could not be happier! They are the best dentist I have been to -ever. The quality of the cosmetic work they did on me (veneers) is exceptional – very, very natural looking. I get compliments all the time so I figured I’d return the favor – Kudos Drs. Mello and Tabib! ps check out a lot of photos of their work on their site.

This is by far the best Dentist all around !It’s wonderful to find a dentist that is kind and trust worthy and that you look forward to visiting! Dr. Tabib has a very calm demeanor and he is very kind but most of all EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE and PROFESSIONAL . The dental assistants here are all so wonderful as well and provide every one with outstanding customer service.lLinda is just great , also very professional. I was terrified of dentists due to previous experiences and NYC Smile Design made my whole procedure TOTALLY PAINLESS!! I love that I could ask as many question as I needed and they always took the time to explain everything to me, they made me feel super comfortable , I am so happy I trusted them for my work, it is truly a life changing experience !! My smile is now perfect and I love it , I have been getting so many compliments thanks to Dr Tabib, Dr Mello and the wonderful team!

I live in Philadelphia and I travel into New York City just to go to Dr. Mello and Dr. Tabib – they are simply that good. They are both perfectionist and they have definitely transformed my smile and improved my confidence. Their staff is knowledgeable and extremely friendly and everyone takes the time to answer any and all questions. I would give them 1,000,000 stars out of 5.

I am watching the show on Lifetime and the first thing that popped in my head was my Fiance. He has been having really bad dental problems for the last 12 years. He has had hip surgery because of his teeth infections. The infections in his mouth have caused him to be hospitalized for weeks and had gone into his hip, where he couln’t walk, he now has a 7″scar where the doctors cut open to remove an abscess. We don’t have the money to take care of this and it breaks my heart that this has put a strain on his self esteem and he has such a great way of talking to people and now that he has lost so many teeth, he is not able to talk to people face to face like he use to and it breaks my heart because he could make people happy with his profession. I am pleading with you and your expertise, to please consider helping my fiance smile again. Lorraine in Surprise, Arizona

NYC Smile Design has basically become my second home this past year as I was getting treatment with Dr. Mello. The whole staff are so caring, always want to make sure you feel comfortable, so easy to get appointments…and honestly they are fun! (Never thought I’d say that about a dentist.) Dr. Mello made all my smile dreams come true, I know that sounds very corny…but when you hate your smile you laugh a little less and smile only when absolutely necessary. Life is a little less shiny when you have to try not to smile. After years of going to different cosmetic dentists only to be disappointed with the results, Dr. Mello was the first to actually make a difference and listen to what I wanted. She has a great eye (like an artist), and you can tell she is as happy as I am with the results…She cares about the results, and goes above and beyond to achieve the best results, no matter how hard the situation in front of her is. I will be forever grateful to her for making me smile (REALLY BIG!) again.

Stephanie S. from Gramercy, Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely hate going to the dentist (as many do) but Dr. Mello and her staff are top notch and make the experience easy and pleasant. I’m still a procrastinator when it comes to getting regular X-rays and cleaning, but they make it easier to keep it top of mind. The office is clean and welcoming and the staff is well-trained and professional. Highly recommended!

Jennifer S. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to NYC Smile Design for 14 years.  My teeth have never looked better.  These dentists are top notch proffessionals and their extensive education shines through.  I have never had a single problem with my teeth.  They take pride in doing the highest quality work.  Anyone who cares about their smile as much as I do should be visiting their office.  You’ll be in the hands of a welcoming and very professional staff from the moment you walk in the door.  I could only thank them for being honest and taking good care of me.  I visit their office twice a year and go in and leave with a smile.  They’re just wonderful!

Yelp S. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had been putting off going to the dentist for longer than I care to admit.  I finally broke down, thanks to LifeBooker, and made an appointment with Dr. Mello at NYC Smile Design.  The staff was wonderful from the front desk to the techs and Dr. Mello was a pleasure.  The offices are clean, modern and attractive, the process was painless and efficient and I was thrilled.  I will definitely be back.  I have already recommended them to several friends.

This a professional, thorough, compassionate practice. You are made comfortable and the level of care is exceptional. Great practice, great people and staff. For anyone who wants to improve their dental health and appearance, this is a wonderful place to the results you desire.

I love love love them, they are the first dentists that actually told me what’s going on with my teeth and face and what we could do to make it better!! Amazing energy and they really know what they are talking about!

Olga Sakhno (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Mello is a great talented cosmetic dentist. She truly has an artistic eye. She takes a lot of pictures and communicates with you and the lab until you are completely satisfied with her work. The lab she works with is amazing. I highly recommend this doctor. Thank you!!

Jenny Sanders (Source: Google)


Dr. Mello is exceptional at what she does- there is no one else I would trust with my smile! Her extensive experience, warm professionalism, and attention to detail are all outstanding. The entire staff at NYC design are friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. Plus, the office is always immaculate and designed beautifully- so chic!

Being a child in Ireland in the seventies meant that I had been traumatized into a state of panic at the very mention of a dentist by the time I was ten.  As a result I stayed away from dentists for most of my adult life.  Add to that a two pack a day cigarette habit and a couple of decades of alcohol abuse and by the time I was forty the inside of my mouth resembled an unkempt seventieth century european graveyard.  Seven years ago, I started cleaning up my act, first went the booze, then the smokes, but the teeth remained and boy did they hurt; not just physical pain, though that was bad enough, but the psychic pain of walking around with a mouthful of teeth that needed to be hidden at all times. I had stopped smiling in public.  Here I was feeling better than I had in years with a baby daughter who filled me with joy and I was paranoid about smiling in public.  One day in an act of desperation I googled “Smile” and “Dentist” and “New York City”, I found Smile Design.  I looked them up, they seemed way out of my league, even if I could afford to go for a consultation I thought there’s no way I could reveal the inside of my mouth to a dentist, they’d call the dental police on me, they’d have me executed if they got a glimpse of the neglect I concealed daily with clamped lips.  But I needed to do something, so I wrote to them, I sent them a picture of my teeth, I told them I needed help and that I couldn’t afford the work needed to correct the trauma in my mouth. Then something miraculous happened; they invited me to their office. I went.  I met Dr Tabib and Dr Mello, and they put me at ease instantly.  I liked them.  They were nice people. I felt a sense of trust that I’d never experienced before in a dental office.  Then they told me something that has changed my life, they told me that they would take care of my teeth for free….YES…YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT…FREE.  I cried in their office that day, it still brings tears to my eyes.  When you witness an act of generosity like that it opens your tear ducts, it opens your heart, and it made me smile. I made a short movie documenting my own life at that time, in it you get a sense of what the transformation meant for me.  I wanted to honor the gift artistically to the best of my ability.  After I got my teeth fixed my smile returned in full force, I met a girl and fell in love, we got married in Central park a couple of months ago, Dr Tabib and Dr Mello were there with us to share in the joy.  They are no longer just my dentists, I am so grateful to know them now as friends.  Two of the most amazing people I have ever met.   You need a dentist?  Don’t hesitate; call these people right away.  You won’t regret it.   Here is a link to that short movie I made.…

Dr. Mello & Dr. Tabib are hands down the very best cosmetic dental practice in NYC. Not only do they help patients redesign their smiles, they also give constant opportunity to exercise that smile. The entire team is highly professional and it has  been an absolute delight to know these caring, intelligent, talented people.

I became addicted to this place! I’ve been in Florida during the pandemic and couldn’t wait to see Dr. Mello again. I missed this team literally! They renovated the office with great taste again. I became addicted to this place!

NYC Smile Design one of my assistants found in 2005. To say they are above and beyond awesome is an understatement. Dr.Mello is a perfectionist, to say the least. Their staff is superb and on it � Everyone I have sent to them LOVES them as much as I do. They are GREAT. Amazing at what they do and such nice people as well.

Nick Perrelli (Source: Facebook)


Dr Mello has been treating me for months now on my invisilign, and my experience at NYC Smile Design has been superb. Dr Mello and the entire staff go over and beyond to make you feel at ease at the office. Caring,Professional, Informative along with the latest technology that’s NYC Smile Design.

C B. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have to confess I have never stepped foot into this office. But, Stephanie, the person I spoke to on the phone about a dental emergency, already has me believing this may be the best dental office in NYC. Thank you, Stephanie. I hope that they know how lucky they are to have you as their point of contact! You are a diamond in the rough and I, and my family, will all be using NYC Smile Design for our dental needs in the future based solely on your professionalism, empathy and warmth displayed over the phone. 🙂

I would highly recommend Dr. Tabib and Dr. Mello to anyone that is looking to improve their smile. There are very few doctors out there that care more about their practice and their patients than these two!

Erika Y. from Woodside, NY (Source: Yelp)


Great experience! I’ve been coming here for years. Caring and professional dentists that know what they’re doing. Very friendly staff too. Dental equipment is continuously updated with the latest and greatest technology. The dentists and staff make you feel so comfortable like you are at home; they constantly check on you to make sure you are alright and at ease. Some of the complimentary amenities they offer include: hot and cold beverages in the waiting area; toothbrush, toothpaste, lotion, and perfume in the bathroom; and music and TV in the patient rooms. I am do comfortable there that I could fall asleep while they work on me…..that’s how comfortable it is there! I highly recommend these dentists to anyone!

NYC Smile Design is truly one of a kind practice! Everything is fantastic from two artist-dentists to staff to work being done. I am with Dr. Mello for a bit over 3 years and have to admit that any work she has done is absolutelly unrivaled by any other previous I have done in NYC and Europe. Her work is impeccable, durable, and aesthetically perfect. They also make my visit feel like visiting friends every time. Always caring, professional and friendly, with patient’s best interest in mind. It really helps making one at ease and happy walking out thinking that today I have done something good for my dental health. I haven’t had any work done by Dr. Tabib yet but suspect I will at some point. You should really look at the instagram-documented miracles they performed on some teeth. Their profile is quite impressive and fun to follow.

James P. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I discovered this dental office through  a friend who had gotten his invisalign from there. I was impressed by the quality of work done on his teeth so I asked him about his dentist. Now as for my own personal experience with NYC Smile Design, I have to say that it has been very good. The pros are self evident. They are courteous, professional, clean, and knowledgeable at what they do, and most importantly they get the job done correctly. As for the cons… Well I haven’t experienced any yet. Either way, anything outside the treatment of your teeth is auxiliary so even if there is a con, it wouldn’t be a defining factor. . Would I recommend NYC Smile Design to someone else? Most definitely!

I have been a patient of Drs Tabib and Mello for many years. I have recommended members of my family to their practice. I cannot begin to describe the life changing experience meeting them and being cared for by them has meant to me. There was a time when I thought I would never find a dentist who could give me back my smile and the assurance that my teeth were going to be aligned properly and not fall out (as my caps had following treatment by other dentists. I recommend Drs Tabib and Mello to anyone looking for the very best dentists/dental artists.

Joanne Trusherska (Source: Facebook)


They are Awesome! I have been going to Dr. Melow for many many years. The staff is also Fantastic. You are treated so special. They do amazing work , 5 star equipment! ! I would not go anywhere else. I would recommend NY Smile Design 100%

By far, my best experience at the dentist office! Extremely professional, thorough, and on time. The place was immaculate. Ramin Tabib provides top notch work, while providing a relaxed atmosphere, which is such a welcome environment when your at the dentist’s office. Huge thanks!
