Patient Testimonials
  • "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.

    "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. Dr. Mapes is great, he'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."

  • It's difficult to trust a new dentist especially if you have a beloved family one. However, in this case you'll be glad you did. Dr. Mapes is a wonderful dentist. WSD is modern and sleek in both its look as well as smooth operation. I've never waited more than 5 minutes to be seen. It is very clean and pretty stylish actually. The equipment is new and current w items such as digital X-rays. I pay out of pocket due to no health insurance and find Dr. Mapes to be more than reasonable. I'm very happy to have fond a dentist that I am happy with.

    Came to find this place for Invisalign. Previous reviewers cite this place as trendy and more like a salon- it's true! Who knew it would feel so ...hip... going to the dentist? Great tunes play as you're waiting to see the doc, comp tea and coffee and Netflix throughout the office. Very friendly staff, and Dr. Mapes is very good at explaining the Invisalign process and keeping you up to date and answering all your questions.

  • 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.

    I went to see Dr. Mapes and his staff on a Groupon - it was a great deal and their service was fast, easy, comfortable -- 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 hygienists are stylish and hot, and Dr. Mapes is friendly, professional, and hip. They have great music playing and their offices are cool and comfortable.
