Dr. Lee Gause is recognized by both patients and colleagues as a leader in contemporary American dentistry. 

While firmly grounded in conservative comprehensive care, Dr. Gause is a professor of Implant Dentistry at New York University. He has lectured internationally on topics of Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Dentistry

He has practiced dentistry in New York since 2005, and has a boutique family of patients who are as committed to their own care as Dr. Gause is to delivering it.

Although Dr. Gause’s vision of Smile Design Manhattan is one of New York’s premiere destinations for multidisciplinary care, Dr. Gause’s sense of professional balance is indicated by his founding of Smile Design Gallery, a charity that uses art sales to fund free dental care, for individuals being rehabilitated from homelessness, and low income children and seniors.

After 10 years in practice, Dr. Gause has emerged as a clinical leader in Porcelain Veneers, Invisalign, and Dental Implants. Dr. Gause’s personal interests are physical fitness, contemporary visual art, and development of dental public health systems in emerging cultures.
