About our practice
Starting in September of 2011, Williamsburg Smile Design was born.
Dr. Mapes opened his first practice, Williamsburg Smile Design, in 2011. It was an instant hit in north Williamsburg and only a year and half later, he found himself planning practice number two.
About Dr. Mapes
After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan with high honors, Dr. Mapes attended the Univeristy at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. As a cum laude graduate, Dr. Mapes furthered his dental expertise and honed his skills in a post-graduate residency program at Palmetto Health in Columbia, South Carolina.
Dr. Mapes received advanced training in implantology (placement of dental implants), endodontics (root canal surgery), oral surgery (extractions), IV sedation, and prosthodontics. For several years, Dr. Mapes associated alongside New York City's top dentists. He is dedicated to continuing education and has trained with some of the nation's most forward-thinking dentists in functional occlusion/smile design, as well as cosmetic orthodontics (Six Month Smiles and Invisalign).
He understands that each person has a unique personality and unique dental needs and treats each patient as such. He appreciates that from the patient’s perspective, the dentist is getting about as "up close and personal" as anyone can get. For this reason, Dr. Mapes makes it his top priority to comfort his patients and put them at ease before beginning even the simplest procedure.
Our office has amazing perks! We have Netflix in every room. We offer coffee and hot chocolate and warm/cold towel service depending on the season. Fresh scents and aromatics are put into the air, because the last thing anyone wants to smell is that old dental office aroma! If you can think of anything we can do to improve your experience, let us know. We aim to please at Williamsburg Smile Design!
