Meet Dental Team

Peter Mann DDS, FICOI, FAGD

After working with some of the top world renowned dentists throughout New York City; in 2009 Dr. Mann decided it was time to achieve his vision by opening the Smile Arts of NY in the heart of Manhattan on E. 40th between Madison and Park ave.

Originally born in Ukraine, when communism collapsed his family took the opportunity to pursue the American dream and moved to New York. Dr. Peter Mann has lived in New York ever since, for over 22 years. His goal is to provide excellent dental experience for his fellow New Yorkers.

“Dentistry is constantly evolving, only by continuing to seek more knowledge I can continue to provide the best care for my patients.” Dr. Peter Mann has completed over a thousand hours of continuing education in cosmetic, implant, and sedation dentistry. In 2009 Dr. Mann received the fellowship award from the International congress of Oral Implantology.

“I love my profession. I love the technical challenges I face each day and enjoy the interactions that I have with my patients. It is especially rewarding at the end of a difficult visit getting a thank you from the patient because they know we care about them and take immense pride in the care we provide.”

Dr. Mann lives minutes from the office. Patients undergoing treatment have his cell phone number and can always get in touch with any questions or concerns. It’s not unusual to see Dr. Mann arriving after hours to help a patient with an emergency.
