Dr. Elisa Mello Cosmetic Dentist

Dr. Elisa Mello, known for her extraordinary dentistry, comes highly recommended for her keen eye to detail and precision. She is described by her patients as the “dentist with a heart of gold” as she assures that those who step in her office are well-listened to, and get the best possible smile makeover they can be proud of. 

A "Dentist With a Heart of Gold"

After graduating from New York University, Dr. Mello continued her education at the New York University College of Dentistry, receiving her doctorate in dental surgery in 1991. Dr. Mello was elected to membership of the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon, The National Dental Honor Society that recognizes academic and clinical excellence in dentistry. She was recognized as the senior student attaining the highest skill and knowledge in the field of periodontology and awarded the Samuel Charles Miller Award in Periodontics.

Patient Review of Dr. Elisa Mello | NYC Smile Design

Dr. Mello is committed to studying the latest methods and technologies with the most highly regarded and innovative clinicians to treat TMJ/headache and physiologic dentistry patients. These patients may require full mouth reconstruction by adding porcelain to the lost tooth structure, or orthodontically and orthopedically (moving teeth and bone to expand the jaw arches non-surgically).

Dr. Mello believes that everyone deserves to have a beautiful smile. She will work with you until you are satisfied with your smile, because your satisfaction with your smile is her motivating factor. In her work, her creativity plays an important role. Using the newest technology, she gives her patients smiles that are truly theirs, and stay true to their overall symmetry.

In our office, Dr. Mello is the problem solver and diplomat. To her, every problem can and will be solved efficiently and creatively. She brings strength to our office by her ability to see other people’s point of view. She is well-read and her knowledge on different subjects have made her the to-go-to team member for answers.

Dr. Mello, whose joy is playing with her children and watching the world through their eyes, particularly enjoys baking, reading or relaxing by the beach. Always a student, she is hoping to finish learning and perfecting her Italian. A busy professional and mom, she does not have a lot of time spare time but when she does, she enjoys reading, designing and sewing clothes and learning about NYC architecture.
