Verified Patient Reviews
Everyone at Dr. Mapes's office is absolutely great. They're professional, skilled, and incredibly kind. I get very anxious about dental work and avoided it for years. Dr. Mapes always puts me at ease and makes sure I have all the information I need to make treatment decisions. They've also helped me understand my insurance coverage. I really appreciate the entire team!
Dr Mapes was on time, curtious, professional and took time to explain everything. I'm glad I found him in my neighborhood.
Ian was very personable and easy going. I had to get two partially impacted wisdom teeth pulled right away and he had them out in less than 20 mins!! The office is nice, modern and clean. I will be back for my future dental needs.
Went for 2 fillings and the staff made it, dare I say... enjoyable. Very friendly people, and very good care. While the ambiance is spectacular, the service and care is just as great!
Dr. Mapes is always professional. He takes time to answer all your questions and best of all you never wait!
Dr. Ian Mapes are Professional and very Nice. My teeth perfectly clean. Doctor assistance and receptionist Very accommodated and friendly. The place very clean and location is convenient. I'm so happy to make right decision to choose this dentist :)
There was a slight mix-up in times, and because of work I was even later than they were expecting, but I walked in and was seen by everyone with a great attitude and total concern for my teeth. I've seen Dr. Mapes at both his locations and each time I leave feeling totally taken care of, totally heard, totally non-judged (important in a dentist!). Can't say enough how much the whole staff just rocks. A shout-out to Yasmin, too, who runs a tight ship and is a great person to work with in terms of planning.
Very professional, pleasant, clean office, and prompt! He used an iPad to show me the photographs and x-rays just taken, which was nice.
Professional, clean, fast, painless.
I recently purchased a condo in the area and was looking for a new dentist. What better way to try one out than with Groupon? I decided to give this place a try since it's only minutes from my new place. Dr. Mapes rushed through my cleaning and gave me the absolute worst, most uncomfortable cleaning that I've ever experienced. When we were done with the cleaning, I got up to wash my mouth out, and when I turned around the Dr. Mapes was gone. He ran out without even saying goodbye. I'm certainly not returning!
I was able to come into my appointment about 45 minutes early, and was instantly met by the dental technician who got me started right away. My teeth were cleaned by Dr. Mapes' partner dentist, who is very friendly, kind and was great at explaining my dental care. I was out the door within 40 minutes! Highly recommend.
Great, friendly dentist. The service here is very fast and the office is nice and new (even includes Netflix).
Excellent visit. So much kindness, time and care given. I feel like the staff of Williamsburg Smile ALWAYS go the extra mile. I won't go to another dentist as long as I live in NY State :)
No matter if you're a dentist person or not, Dr. Ian Mapes will treat you like an old pal. Highly recommended
Dr. Mapes is thorough and very personable. He listened to all of my questions and concerns and walked me through everything. I have a strange phobia of dentists and he made me feel very comfortable. The technology in his office is pretty impressive too :)
very professional and provided great care!
Haven't been to the Dentist for a while now, and although I need some work done, Dr Mapes was very polite and real about what I would need to do. Very clean offices and a great experience. Recommend to people who aren't good with Dentists.
Easy and thorough. Office was clean and new. Everybody was nice. Totally making this my new dentist office.
My teeth have never looked to clean or felt so good.
Awesome office - you can watch Netflix while you get your teeth cleaned! Nice staff too.
It was great! The doc was very informative and took his time explaining things to me whether regarding the issues I've had. He cleaned my teeth up pretty well too and it seemed rather effortless. I was quite impressed. I've found my new dentist in NYC.
Great team, very convenient location, beautiful office.
Solid work. Very nice and helpful in explaining everything. Honest too - doesn't push dental work that doesn't really need to be done. Nicely designed office.
Staff and service were excellent. My only concern is that the ZocDoc reservation apparently does not create the appropriate length of appointment on their side. They were kind enough to accomodate me regardless.
Fast and easy
I had a problem with a tooth and was able to get an appointment the same day I called. Dr. Mapes was very friendly and most importantly, thorough. He explained everything, showed me X rays and photos of the problem I was having. The procedure was relatively painless. I was done in less than an hour. Great location in LIC. Very friendly and helpful office staff and dental assistant.
Very efficient, quick and friendly.
Love the office, love the dentists. They are realistic--they assess what you need and clearly work with you to understand how much it will cost and how high of a priority it is to the overall health of your mouth. They are NOT the cheapest, but I have found: you get what you pay for in NYC.
It went very well!
Dr. Mapes was very friendly with a terrific bedside manner and explained everything clearly.
i hadn't been to the dentist in 6 years so i was worried going in, but the experience was turbulence free and very professional. highly recommended!
Professional, modern, capable dentistry!
Dr Mapes is super friendly and knowledgeable. Going to the dentist is never fun but it's less of a pain when the office is clean, filled with friendly people, you see a kind dentist, and the wait never is more than 5 minutes. :)
Great job making a quick fix to a "filling" breaking out.
Very friendly dentist. He is very thorough with explanations and answering your questions. Highly recommended. One thing to know, however is that he likes to play music pretty loud and it is kind of techno with loud bass, which is kind of a bummer. You can't even watch the really nice personal flatscreen with Netflix because the music is too loud.
Amazing staff and location! Always taking the time to inform as well as treat!
Amazing office and staff. Hygienist was also incredible and I loved her personality. Highly recommended in the area.
The office was pretty cool , music playing fresh and clean truly made you relax, the rooms were spacious and open really cool
Excellent and efficient care. I was in and out before I knew it and Dr. Mapes is fantastic.
Awesome! Super down to earth!!!!
What a nice office, and a great staff. I came in for a consultation to fix some slight spacing that has occurred in my teeth since my braces came off almost 15 years ago. Dr. Mapes told me about the express version of Invisalign, and the hygienist was able to do the impressions immediately. No fuss, very professional and comfortable experience.
It's been 5+ years since I've last seen a dentist and am very glad I chose Dr Mapes and his staff for my initial "reentry". They are young, professional, easy going and comforting... all with a sense of humor. Meeting them took the anxiety out of seeing the dentist and I feel confident in their care. Highly recommended and the space is wonderful. Modern and clean but not cold.
Great dentist and pleasant staff :)
Dr. Mapes is always awesome, this was my 3rd time going and he always remembers me and my crazy teeth
Stellar, chic office. Extremely nice facility and faculty. Dentist was very knowledgeable and great bedside manner. Highly r
Very professional. Almost painless root canal with genuine concern for my pain level and well being. Really nice guy, too.
Quick & efficient. First cleaning I've had where I noticed the difference right away after getting home.
What a great dental office! Everyone is so nice! The office manager was so informed and kind... I just found my new dentist :)
great office, everyone is friendly and there's never a wait
Great in all areas, fantastic, smart staff as well.
Super fast service! Punctual and thorough.
Great dentist. Great bedside manner. Very nice and efficient.
The location, office, and staff were pleasant. I was seen almost immediately and did not have to wait in a room once being called. The office is modern and clean. Both the hygienist and Dr. Mapes were personable, friendly, and great with children. My 2 year old daughter was seen as well (it was her first dentist appointment) and they were awesome with her.
One of the best dentist experiences of my life. Modern and clean offices, friendly staff, and Dr. Mapes was professional and very informative. Had a cleaning and two fillings, all in under an hour and a half.
Great service and professional compared to a lot of dentist in Brooklyn I've gone to.
I had a wonderful experience for a cleaning and xrays with the staff in this office. My heigenist was wonderful as well as the dentist. I had not been in 6 years, and they made me feel comfortable and at ease. They have great technology in a modern office setting. Each person that I saw explained what they were doing and were very professional. I would highly recommend booking an appointment through this office, the atmosphere, facilitiy, and staff are all excellent. Best dentist appt I've ever had!
The most pleasant dentist experience i have ever had. The staff were really nice and you even get to watch Netflix whist you wait!
Great visit! Honest about what was going on, probably the most knowledgeable dentist I've seen in a long time!
The office was clean, modern, and very comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall the experience was very pleasant...and that's hard to say about a dentist visit.
Doctor was very personable, hygienist was very nice & kind to my gums! I'm so glad to have finally found a Dentist I like that's also close to home!
Dr. Mapes office was fantastic and very accommodating. ZocDoc was having technical issues with syncing appointments, so when I up to the office I was not on the books but Dr. Mapes staff was great and they were able to honor my original appointment time. I only had to wait a short time (about 15 minutes) before they were able to see me. I was especially grateful since I was having a dental emergency.
This is by far the best dental experience I've had.
Great office finally found a dentist I like in my area!
like most people, i am scared of the dentist, however, this experience was a 10+. the hygienist was thorough and patient with my fear and Dr. Mapes was kind, honest and answered all my questions. I will be seeing Dr. Mapes again, and will now consider him my Dentist. thanks again!
Very pleased with my visit and everyone I dealt with was polite and professional. I also really appreciated the updated technology and overall ease of the visit.
Great experience, going back for my white fillings.:)
This is the best office ever. Everyone is so nice and helpful. Hands down best experience at a dentist. I will be going back.
Very pleased. Nice, clean office. And very smooth with my teeth.
He was very friendly and acommodating--as was the whole staff. I would go back. Great office design as well.
Love Dr. Mapes. This is my second visit with him and I just can't believe how awesome him and his staff are. Totally righteous.
Positive overall. Bianca was nice and helpful as was Dr. Ian Mapes.
It was the best extraction i have ever day no pain.Dr. Mapes is amazing
Thought he was great! Very gentle on the cleaning, which I appreciate.
I think he's my new dentist!
Dr. Mapes listened to my concerns. He inspires confidence and I know I'm in good hands.
Amazing. Everyone there was wonderful.
Super friendly and accommodating staff, bright, clean, airy office- overall a really ideal dentist experience.
He was really nice and informative!
He was extremely short, maybe because the appointment was prepaid, he wasn't really listening and just said he couln'd get a perfect result, but I don't really want fake looking teeth, he wasn't interested in explaining.
Pain free deep cleaning and the numbness wore off by the time I got more - great!
Dr. Mapes and his staff were very attentive, friendly, and thorough. They answered all of my questions. I would recommend to others, and will be back!
Very nice and thorough job. Came out with my teeth being very clean, and knowing a lot more than when I came in. The dental hygienist was also very good and informative.
The Doc was very thorough with my examination he explained & answered all the 100 questions I asked :) His assistant & receptionist were very pleasent & helpful.
My son said that was his best Dentist experience.
Dr. Mapes was great. He made me comfortable and all my procedures were quick, easy, and painless. The office is awesome with good music and a great staff. Thanks guys!
Very nice Doctor and staff.
Extremely professional, efficient, and friendly. I felt like I was in good hands.
I liked the location, the design and cleanliness of the place. I thought that the staff seemed sincere and the girl that cleaned my teeth (with bangs) was really great and gave me some great tips. Dr. Mapes was nice and personable and I'll stick with this place in the future.
Polite, friendly and professional.
Complete evaluation and detailed information. Exactly what I needed.
Perfect, highly recommended.
great dentist, really kind and professional
Really great first experience. Not too much chit chat and wasn't super cold, just right! The office is designed well and the equipment is new and nice. Netflix was queued up on the TV so I suppose you could have put in a request if you wanted. Rest of the team was very good too.
He was very gentle and nice! I recommend a lot!
it went well; the staff was good; and your website and appointment scheduling a pleasure. The doctor's frankness about a tooth problem and or replacement was greatly appreciated.
I've had a number of procedures after finding Dr Mapes through ZocDoc. I feel really lucky, since I don't know anyone who would recommend their dentist. Dr. Mapes and the staff are professional, kind, and informative. I can be a pain wanting to know everything about the procedures I'm undergoing and all of the alternatives (bit of a Dr. Google am I), and Dr. Mapes gladly and patiently explains everything. I recommend him highly - even though I'll be moving to JC soon, I will still come to Wmsburg to see him!
Everyone was very nice and professional.
Great, contemporary experience all around. Not your grandmother's dentist, although she would probably appreciate the experience as well.
Dr Mapes and his staff are friendly and very professinal. I will highly recommend Dr Mapes.
Great experience. Direct, professional, and reassuring.
They're great. Dr Mapes and Jasmine and the kind front desk woman (who's name I've forgotten, sorry!) are all so good and caring. Highly recommended.
Best dentist in Williamsburg by a long shot and the hygienist is the best I have ever had. Clean as a whistle!
So far so good - my son who's the patient (braces) doesn't mind coming back for his fittings :)
My boyfriend has a big fear of dentists(so much so that I had to go with him to his appointment.) He said this was the first time he's been to the dentist when it wasn't at all painful. Everyone at the office was very friendly and accommodating.And it's a very nice office. We highly recommend Ian Mapes and his office.
He was professional and nice. He did a great job of explaining all aspects of the procedures.
They have been professional and extraordinarily kind to my husband and me. We're sold. Good people, good work.
I went for a routine cleaning. His office is incredibly nice, and staff more than pleasant and informative. Mapes did a thorough teeth exam looking for problem areas. He found a couple and comfortably explained (using digital images and Xrays taken on the spot) what the issues were, and what could be done. Then the cleaning went totally fine, and i was then told about their extraordinary in-office dental plan, that i'm going to sign up for in lieu of me not having dental insurance. All in all, awesome.
professional, great atmosphere, and he listened which I always find important.
Great location, office, and dentist.
I have been with Dr. Mapes for almost 2 years and couldn't imagine seeing another professional. Flexible, positive and informative demeanor every time. From cleanings, to check-ups, to whitening to 6 month smile (braces), he is a great Dentist.
He was wonderful! He looks very young but carries himself in a professional manner. I was impressed.
Excellent and thorough. Best dentist I've ever been to (and unfortunately, I've been to many).
Chicest dentist's office ever.
Dr. Mapes was excellent. He addressed all the issues I was concerned about and put me at ease. My cleaning was quick, easy and thorough. The office is also well designed, not your usual mundane dentist office. Highly recommended.
Very pleasant experience. Professional and friendly staff. No wait, clean and modern facilities, convenient location. Overall the best experience I have had at a dentist office.
Visit was better than I expected. Office is amazing, staff is amazing, and Dr. Mapes was incredible, at understanding my smile concerns and addressing fixing them. Can't wait to start my treatment.
Nice new office, pleasant staff, my teeth cleaning was done fast(they have great new equipment) and left my teeth squeaky clean:)
Great experience I will be back!
Another great visit.
he's a good man, and thorough.
Dr. Mapes and his staff were friendly, professional and accommodating.
he seemed really knowledgeable and was nice
Best and most knowledgeable dentist I have been to. Excellent staff, beautiful modern office and equipment, great experience. I have already recommended him to numerous people and will continue to use his services well into the future. Thank you ZocDoc for having Dr Mapes in your system.
Dr. Mapes is the best! Of course everything went well....
The office was beautiful, and the staff - excellent.
Today was the 3rd time my teenage son visited Dr.Mapes. He has his braces put on. Even though he hates the idea of wearing braces, my son really likes Dr.Mapes and his bedside manners. So far so good. Thumbs up!
He was really great. I was nervous because I haven't been to a dentist in a really long time, but he made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He was fast, attentive and a nice guy. The office is nice, high-tech and cool. Plus the $99 cleaning/xray deal was what sold me in the first place. Plus they have a payment plan, which is nice. I've already recommended my friends to see him. Thank you!
Great, personal service, attentive staff... Will recommend to friends.
Friendly, professional, kind, in a word: Perfect!
Thought enough of him to have my daughter come over and make an appointment.
Ian is great - really understands his patients needs for not feeling any pain during the visit.
So far, so good! Today was our second time in the office and we were very satisfied. Dr.Mapes took time to answer our questions - which is very appreciated.
This Doctor is very efficient and knows what he's doing. I am very pleased
There is not much I can say about Ian Mapes, DDS by just seeing him once. He was very nice and so was his staff. They were all professional and pleasant to deal with. The doctor took time to explain the procedure and then he answered my questions promptly via email when I had some follow up inquires regarding the procedure we discussed. I am new to ZocDoc so I am not sure how the feedback feature works. I am hoping, it will let me leave a follow up feedback once the procedure I chose for my teenage son is complete, since it is hard to tell whether you would or would not recommend a professional at this stage of the game. For now, he does get my thumbs up!
5 stars hands down. Dr. Mapes is great, his office is state of the art, and the whole check in, check out process was as smooth as can be. Highly recommended and will definitely be my go-to for dental problems.
My first appointment with Dr. Mapes went great! He answered all of my questions and I have a follow-up appointment next week with him. I also got a free whitening kit!
Very friendly office. I received good service.
He was very thorough and professional; he explained in detail what I was looking at on the monitor when my x-ray was taken. I would highly recommend him, he is a true gentleman. The entire staff was also very friendly and warm!
