About Dr. Smigel
Dr. Irwin Smigel, inventor of the Supersmile Total Oral Care System, is celebrated internationally as the "father of aesthetic dentistry". His clinically developed professional whitening and maintenance system delivers quality oral care and is safe for everyday use. Dr. Smigel is also the founder and current president of the American Society for Dental Aesthetic and a diplomat for the American Board of Aesthetic Dentistry.
A visionary dental clinician, Dr. Smigel helped develop the bonding technique in the early '70s. Since then, he's been at the forefront of every major new development, including laminates/veneers, facial structure, and tooth whitening.
In 1994, Dr. Smigel received the Outstanding Contribution to Aesthetic Dentistry Award from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He's written over 110 articles for dental journals and serves on the board of Dentistry Today. His influence is even felt on a global level, having established aesthetic dental societies around the world.
In 2000, New York University established the Smigel Prize in Aesthetic Dentistry. The Smigel Fund was also created by NYU to provide financial assistance to those pursuing careers in the performing arts.
Dr. Smigel is held in the highest regard for his lifelong contributions to aesthetic dentistry, which is the art and science of making your teeth and smile more beautiful. He takes the entire facial structure into consideration when customizing each of his cases. Dr. Smigel was officially recognized in June 2009 by the National Museum of Dentistry, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Museum, in a permanent installation called The Smile Experience—an exhibit which pays homage to his contributions to the field. The exhibit features his case histories of changing facial structure and videos of his remarkable real-life transformations in aesthetic dentistry.
Today, Dr. Smigel maintains a successful cosmetic dentistry practice on Madison Avenue. He treats some of the most recognizable smiles in the country.
