Dr Mapes has been my dentist at Williamsburg Smile Design for 3 years now. He has done my invisalign treatment, which I am beyond happy with, and I continue to have my cleans, xrays and other dental work completed by him. He is really fantastic, so patient, friendly and professional. I have recommended him to many of my friends who have also had great experiences with him.

Best dental experience I’ve ever had. First of all, the office was immaculate and I got in exactly at my appointment time. The staff was super friendly, knowledgeable, and reassuring. They explained everything they were doing and why which was so nice since I have never needed a crown before and didn’t know what to expect. They had to clean out an old filling that was poorly done by another dentist, give me a new filling and a temporary crown. The whole procedure took an hour and I felt NOTHING!! No pain, no discomfort, nothing! Best experience ever. I will never go to another dentist. 5 stars!!!

This is the best dentist I’ve ever been to. They’re super fast, extremely friendly, and conveniently located in Williamsburg. I was very impressed with their email, text, and call reminders for my appointment. Their office ks probably the nicest dentist office ive ever been in. They use computer screens on the ceiling to show you exactly what’s going on while you’re in the chair. Also, where else can you watch Twin Peaks and listen to reggae all while getting dental work done. Do it, you know you want to.

I was referred to Dr. Mapes by a friend and I could not happier. My experience was great from start to finish. His front desk staff were welcoming and kind. Dr. Mapes did the entire cleaning himself and explained everything he was doing as he worked so I was not left with any questions. He did a great job and my hunt for a New York dentist is over. I would HIGHLY reccomend Dr. Mapes to anyone.

Helpful, thorough, and informative. The facility is clean. They also use current technology to clean teeth and share x-rays with patients. The staff is friendly and work as a team. I was very pleased with my cleaning and the overall experience as a first-time patient. I will return. Thank you!

These guys are great dentists. Their office is actually outside of my insurance’s network, but I’ve been getting my dental care there anyway because Williamsburg Smile Design’s dentists are so good, and the medical technology they use is state-of-the-art. And I figure, it’s my teeth — and I only get one pair. So I’m going to the best dental office, instead of the one that my insurance company wants me want to visit. I’ve been to several dental offices in recent years. Williamsburg Smile Design is the best of the lot, no doubt about it.

Jared K. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


This is absolutely the most comfortable i’ve been at a dentists office before. Natalie at the front desk is caring and sweet and when I was nervous about getting certain work done, she recommended I come in for a 2nd review and it absolutely put me at ease. Kelly the dental assistant is also extremely sweet and caring. They have a great deal where for $350 you get two cleanings a year and 15% off any other needed services. I think this is fantastic value, and it also includes the above recommended examination outside of the cleaning, just to get an opinion.

I have to say, not only is this one of the best and cleanest dentists offices I have ever visited. The administrative staff is welcoming, courteous, and is extremely helpful! Lisa (Liz?) and Natalie helped me deal with a billing/insurance issue that I received a letter about and worked patiently with me and my insurance company to resolve it. I have never encountered such a professional and accommodating office staff, and I highly recommend taking any of your dental needs to this office. Oh, and my smile has never looked prettier :).

Just had my first visit for a cleaning and emergency exam with Williamsburg Smile Design – and I am thrilled to have found a new practice for my family! After a few bad visits to Williamsburg Dental Arts, I procrastinated with dental check-ups and cleanings for a whole year until I found myself in trouble with a toothache. I was a little concerned by the negative Yelp reviews, but I realized that most of them weren’t about the dental work, but the “marketing” and standard practice of “payment for services rendered” at all dentist offices. The office manager gave me an appt for the same week – and was so kind and understanding that I already felt great about trying a new practice. I am terrified of dental work and cleanings, but the hygienist, Bianca, was absolutely amazing. She made me feel at ease and gave me the best cleaning I’ve ever had (even after a year of delinquency). Dr. O’Connor saw me within 10 minutes of my cleaning – and reviewed my x-rays with me to discuss things to watch. Luckily, I didn’t need emergency work, but it was definitely a wake-up call to keep up with regular and consistent care! The office is in such a great location – with a lovely and calming atmosphere. There’s LCD screens with NetFlix in all the rooms, including the waiting room (not that I waited that long). Love the front office staff, too! I am so happy and privileged to join the Williamsburg Smile Design family.

I had a wonderful experience with this office. The dentist made my smile look wonderful again, and the administrative staff were professional and courteous. They helped me over the course of two days to resolve a billing/insurance issue that I was dealing with, and were extremely patient and understanding! I highly recommend this place.

Had an excellent experience at WS! Bianca did my exam and cleaning and was so thorough and friendly. The dentist confirmed that an old root canal was in fact not looking great and offered some suggestions to keep my teeth in shape. I will definitely be coming back. What a great office and staff!

Kara D. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Using Groupon can be scary sometimes because you never know what to expect, and so often you find out nothing is included and they try to add on services, or the service is just lousy and rushed.  But being uninsured, I decided to go for the $50 cleaning and take my chances.   Not only was it not a scary experience, it was also the most thorough cleaning I’ve ever had.  The staff is super nice, and the office is clean and modern.  X-rays were included, and they went over everything with me.  I was given suggestions for other services that could help me, but not in a pushy way.  They are simply very thorough, informative, and professional.

Djuna Faye W. from Flagler Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


I haven’t been to the dentist in a year and a half. Part of it was lack of dental insurance during a year of road trips followed by art residencies and startup gigs in California; now I’m all set in NYC with a stable job. So I scheduled this appointment the moment I had a free minute after my new coverage kicked in. I was expecting a wickedly painful cleaning – and a lot of sighing and head-shaking from a dentist who would be irritated about how much remedial work my neglected teeth needed. And I was pretty bummed about spending one of my first Saturday mornings in Brooklyn at the dentist’s. Williamsburg Smile Design turned out to be nothing that I dreaded, not even a waste of a Saturday morning. The office is sleek and pleasant, with white couches and tasteful mod decor. The receptionist and hygienist were genuinely friendly and upbeat, so I had a pretty fine relaxing morning despite the click-scrape-whirrrr-whirrrr of metal tools and water and teeny suction hoses in my mouth. The hygienist was very knowledgeable (totally unlike the usual going-through-the-motions grump), and readily discussed some options for post-ortho work I can have done to make my teeth brushing routine less of a hassle. The Doc himself was what ya call a swell guy. I do need to have a few minor issues addressed at a later appointment, and he let me know about it without any condescension. I’ll be returning to Smile Design next month, and I’m almost … looking forward to a dental appointment? Weird, but I’ll take it.

I’ve never had a cavity in my adult life so I can’t say I hate the dentist. However, I have never looked forward to my bi-annual cleaning and check up. While in between insurance companies, Living Social hit me with a coupon for Williamsburg Smile Design so I checked them out. Great waiting area, convenient location off the L train, and the Doc and staff’s customer service was top notch. The whole time I felt very well taken care of and welcomed. Looking forward to my next check up.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Mapes. I visited this office because I was experiencing tooth pain. Not only were they able to see me within an hour of my call, they were able to extract my wisdom tooth in 5 minutes! I was in and out in about 30 minutes. It was great. I was clearly nervous about having my tooth pulled unexpectedly, but Dr. Mapes was very calming and made me feel at ease. I just went back for my one-week follow-up appointment this morning and, again, was in and out super quickly (~5 minutes). Everything looked good and they sent me on my way. Great place. You even get to watch Netflix while you wait 🙂

Tine W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went all the way over from Manhattan to get my teeth cleaned, glad I did. The office is gorgeous, the people are super friendly, you can watch Netflix while having your teeth cleaned (never seen that before), and the cleaning is very quick and gentle. They’re also handing out free teeth whitening kits to every new patient. The office is hard to see at first, it’s behind a gated parking lot. This is definitely my new permanent dentist.

#1 Dentist in Williamsburg. I moved back to Manhattan from Williamsburg and still go to Dr. Mapes. His office is super clean and staff professional. They have a plan with 2 cleanings and discount on any other work. He is also a pro at the invisalign, which he did for me, it took only 4 months and I had straight teeth. Highly recommend, my wife now goes as well.

Erin Russell (Source: Google)


I’ve only had one appointment with Williamsburg Smile Design, but my experience has been all positive. The staff is friendly and helpful. The dental hygienist was thorough and did an excellent job. The dentist was thorough, thoughtful, and a great communicator. A very positive professional experience!

Izabella K. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Great place to get invisalign . I have been looking around to find the best place and the best dentist since this is about a two year process and I must say this place not only had the best price which is a little surprising considering it’s location but it also had the best service and the reception area is better than any dentist reception area I’ve seen so far. Thank you for all of your help Dr. Mapes.

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


I went to see Dr. Mapes and his staff on a Groupon – it was a great deal and their service was fast, easy, comfortabe — in short: superb. First of all, this is a hipster dentist – didn’t know those existed? Well, you’re in for a treat: the office looks like a hair salon, the dental hygenists are stylish and hot, and Dr. Mapes is friendly, professional, and hip. They have great music playing and their offices are cool and comfortable. I just came in for X-RAYs and a cleaning; since I haven’t been to a dentist in over 5 years, I figured I had some issues. They explained all my issues and recommended treatments. Unfortunately, they aren’t covered by my insurance, so I’ll have to go elsewhere to have the work done. I like how they explain everything to you in a clear and modern way. They show you your teeth photos and xrays on an IPAD and discuss in detail your options (of course as a cosmetic dental office, they do try to up-sell you on invisiline products, but I was expecting that and I don’t mind hearing about the options…) They even show you how to properly brush your teeth, and gave me a new toothbrush. YES they do email you and text you a lot before hand, but I didn’t mind that either. Kept me on point about location and time. By far the best, most comfortable dental visit I’ve ever had. Highly recommended, just wish they offered more insurance options!

Morgan S. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’m 24 and new to New York and was worried about finding a new dentist. After reading several great reviews, I decided to try Dr. Mapes. His new practice is easy to get to (first stop in Brooklyn off the L train, the practice is between Driggs and Bedford on North 9th street) and I knew this was the right decision as soon as I arrived. His staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Mapes was patient and made me feel very comfortable. He answered all my questions and made sure I understood everything. I’ve already set my next appointment. Dr. Mapes is amazing, and I am finally not dreading seeing my dentists!

I had been looking for a good dentist especially for my children. My son needed to see a dentist right away, because he broke his front tooth. I saw Williamsburg Smile Design on the internet and reviews were great so I called for an appointment. It was the best decision I made. They accommodated me son and I thank God that I found them. It’s a great place, the dentist office is clean and the people are amazing. I would recommend it to anyone looking to be treated with up most respect and recieve the best treatment. I am really satisfied with the work that was done. My son feels comfortable and not intimidated or afraid.

The patient experience at this office is unsurpassed. Dr. Mapes and his staff are professional, competent, and friendly. They know me by first name when I walk in, and their appointments start on time. The doctor took care of my treatments gently and skillfully, with very little recovery time. I highly recommend this place.

Jessica G. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Wow. I am shocked to read these bad reviews! I have NEVER felt taken advantage of here, and I am a pretty shrewd and informed consumer. I have been going here for about 4 years (started with a groupon cleaning and now they have done lots of work for me) and have always felt the dentist/owner (Dr. Mapes) has lots of integrity, does good work, and that the staff is responsive and competent. I have never felt over-charged, lied to, etc. And I appreciate the quality of Dr. Mapes’ work and that of his staff. Sad and strange to read these reviews- although you never know with Yelp. These angry people are probably vendors who feel they got stiffed or something…

Anton S. from Stockholm, Sweden (Source: Yelp)


Professional and helpful. Helped me with a very painful root canal. Front-desk staff was cery friendly and transparent with costs and payments and very helpful in finding appointment times. The procedures themselves went very well despite the pain and I would trust them to do more work on my teeth and to advise me honestly. Great place!

Courtnay G. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I came to Williamsburg Smile and Design because of a Groupon I got. The office was very nice, that was the first thing I noticed. It was very modern and clean. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The Groupon covered everything and I had no issues. My dental hygenist who administered the cleaning, Bianca was great. She did an excellent job and made me feel super comfortable right away. She was telling me stories and had me laughing, how great is that? She was very professional and the procedure was uncomplicated and fast. The doctor checked Bianca’s work, told me about my teeth, answered any questions I had and was very helpful and thorough. She didn’t try to sell me anything, she gave me suggestions for what I could do for my teeth that fits my lifestyle. All in all a great experience. I will definitely return,

Matthew M. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I think the bad reviews here are almost malicious and are a 180 degree difference from my experience at this place. My experiences at Wburg Smile Design: I have always, repeat… every single time: been informed every step of the way how much something would cost and how much my insurance was going to cover. No one has ever been pushy with me about what procedures I needed to get or didn’t need to get. I’m sorry to say it but most dental plans suck and barely cover anything – so this is the real problem. But in cases where my plan didn’t cover something I was given a pretty steep discount. I have had bad experiences with dentists, doctors, and hospitals before so I know what an actual bad experience is. This place is not that. If you aren’t sure how much something will cost or if you really need a procedure, just ask. I have been coming here for about 5 years and have never had what I’d consider a bad experience. No one has ever been rude – in fact far from it and my teeth and gums are better than they were before I started coming here.

Great team at Williamsburg Smile Design!! Very welcoming and forthcoming. Entire team is very knowledgeable, accommodating and friendly throughout the various aspects of the visit – from scheduling to dental work to billing…by far the best experiences I’ve had going in for dental work. Highly recommend!!

Shana Cabasan (Source: Google)


The staff was polite and friendly. The office was clean and the technician who performed the actual cleaning was beyond knowledgeable and gave me a lot of information about my own dental health that had never occurred to me. It was my first appointment. I look forward to going back.

Sarah O. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


My dad was in the dental industry, so I have always received the best of the best when it comes to dental care.  I do no have insurance right now, so I bought the Groupon for cleaning/xrays/consult.  Could not be happier.  Very nice office with pleasant and helpful administrative staff.  The hygienist who did the xrays and cleaning was thorough, gentle, answered all my questions and provided good advice.  The dentist was also very nice, explained everything with no pressure to purchase additional services/treatments.  I had two cavities (eek!), and will definitely make an appointment with Williamsburg Smile Design to have them filled once I return from my upcoming travels.

Chiara G. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Williamsburg Smile Design was a great experience. The office is clean and very inviting with yummy coffee and snacks to enjoy while watching Netflix in the waiting room. The staff is super friendly and they really know their stuff. I felt so well taken care of and that is a rare feeling to get from a doctors office. I definitely recommend this lovely establishment for your next cleaning or filling.

I can’t believe Dr. Mapes doesn’t have more reviews on here. In fact I feel guilty for having taken so long to write a review. But I have to give this place some big love. I too came here via a Living Social and didn’t know what to expect. See, I had also just spent a weekend in an incredible amount of pain due to an infection under a tooth that should have been taken out a long time ago. I’m one of those people that doesn’t go to the dentist until the very last minute, when drastic measures are usually needed. It’s a fault of mine. So I went in pain with this coupon, expecting some tsk-tsking as I’d always gotten from dentists in the past. Instead I got caring, nonjudgmental, sincere advice and treatment. Dr. Mapes actually scheduled me info for a root canal ASAP (which was *incredibly* painless and easy) and here I am a few weeks later still amazed at the quality and care I received. One last thing: the five stars above aren’t just for Dr. Mapes; Jasmine (his Dental Assistant) and Hadeel (Office Manager) deserve them just as much. From walking in the door and being greeted by Hadeel to meeting Jasmine as I began my procedures it was a great experience overall. The office is clean, fancy and modern for sure; but for me it’s all about the people and this place is tip top. Highly recommended.

The folks who work here are consistently friendly, helpful and knowledgeable! I’ve been coming here for two years and find myself gaining more knowledge about my own oral healthcare every time I go. They now offer netflix as well and you can watch your favorite shows while in the dentist chair.

Melvin B. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had a LivingSocial coupon and went there for the first time. I had a good experience, the whole personal is very friendly. The receptionist is very nice, Maria( the woman who does the X-rays) very nice as well. The  hygienist ( i forgot her name sorry) did a great job. I had braces and I haven’t had a cleaning in more than a year ( my teeth were really dirty). The cleaning was a little painful, but nothing a person can’t handle. Doctor Mapes is great, she’s very kind and polite. The place is very clean, neat and modern.  I loved the music, they play old school hip hop and you can watch Netflix while you wait. I’m coming back soon to get Silver Fillings replaced with White Composite since they accept my insurance (Aetna PPO). I recent this place if you live in Brooklyn or close to Bedford av by the L train.
