When Dr. Lee Gause arrived in Manhattan nine years ago, he made it a point to deliver the highest quality dental care with a focus on advanced technology and patient care. The exceptional service and its results have been winning over patients—many even fly across the country for an appointment. But his proudest achievement is the newly launched Smile Design Gallery. Working closely with artists and galleries, Dr Gause merges a passion for art with dental philanthropy. He has successfully tapped the art market to provide much needed funds to treat patients who would normally go without dental care due to financial constraints.
Monthly art shows are curated specifically for Smile Design Gallery, with 100 percent of the value of art sold matched in free dental care for those in need. To date, over $200,000 of charitable dentistry has been provided to over 500 patients.Participating artists and galleries include: Takashi Murakami, Swizz Beats, Chi Modu, Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall, Ron Agam, URNY, the Martin Lawrence Gallery and Klein Sun Gallery.
Smile Design Manhattan is located at 24 West 57th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues and specializes in general, cosmetic and implant dental care.
