The consummate dental health professional and diplomat, Dr. Elisa Mello believes that every problem can and will be solved efficiently and creatively.
At NYC Smile Design, she uses her extensive training in periodontics, orthodontics and periodontal plastic surgery at the NYU College of Dentistry, Flushing Hospital and the Periodontal Institute of Seattle to help improve her patients' smiles.

Blending her creativity with the latest technology, she gives her patients symmetric, beautiful smiles that are truly their own. The Upper East Side dentist will work with patients until they are satisfied with their smile, because their satisfaction is her motivating factor.
In addition to treating TMJ and headache patients, Dr. Mello also specializes in Invisalign, porcelain veneers, complete smile make overs, restorative and cosmetic dentistry, periodontics, orthodontics, and oral surgery, periodontal therapy and periodontal plastic surgery, dental trauma and emergencies, pain control, and pediatric dentistry.
