Dr. Mohr Attends "Simplifying Complex Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry" with Dr. Bill Strupp
In the early part of his career, Dr. Mohr started to learn from one of the best dentists in the field of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He is yet again at a conference to gain the knowledge of one of his mentors.
Dr. Bill Strupp is a world-class clinical dentist — not just a “wannabe” or an academic type who talks about dentistry but doesn’t actually do it. A practicing dentist since 1971, Dr. Strupp does what he says and says what he believes. Over the last 49 years, he has become a leading cosmetic and restorative dentist.
Dr. Bill Strupp has also enjoyed the role of team dentist for the New York Yankees since 1995 and has been presented with five World Series rings.

Dr. Mohr Achieves 2,000 Hours of CE Credits
100 Years’ Worth of Continuing Education!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Dr. Allan S. Mohr, Smile Creations
Phone: (516) 541-7344
Based on New York State law, dentists are required to take at least 20 hours of continuing education (CE) per year. CE is required to ensure dentists stay current regarding new medications, procedures, techniques, materials, and technologies.
Dr. Mohr recently received his transcript of continuing education credits, and it revealed that he has accrued 2,000 hours of CE! This means he has essentially taken the required CE of a dentist practicing for over 100 years!
Why This Matters: This is a very rare feat among healthcare providers in general, not just dentists, but it also points to something more significant—Dr. Mohr’s clear demonstration that he strives to provide the highest-quality care possible in a world where knowledge and technology are changing faster than ever.
What This Means for Patients: Every day, many patients walk into their doctor’s office and ask about a study that has been highlighted on the national news, and for most healthcare practitioners, this is the primary way they learn about a recent discovery or breakthrough. With Dr. Mohr, however, because he is constantly being exposed to the latest research through CE, he usually knows about the newest findings way before the media or public. So, when a patient comes to see him, he can either apply the new knowledge to make their experience better, or he can disregard it. His commitment to excellence allows each and every patient to step into his office and have complete confidence they’ll receive the most up-to-date and advanced care possible.
What This Means for the Future: A big reason Dr. Mohr has taken so much continuing education is that he knows there is always more to learn, so he plans on maintaining his record-breaking pace for the foreseeable future. If there is a new procedure, technique, or material that will improve a patient’s oral health and appearance, you can bet that Dr. Mohr will know about it, and he’ll be one of the first dentists to start using it in his practice while everyone else lags behind.
Dr. Allan S. Mohr is an award-winning cosmetic, restorative and implant dentist with over 37 years of experience providing care for patients in Massapequa Park and on Long Island at his practice, Smile Creations.
OMNICHROMA case featured in Dental Product Shopper
Dr. Mohr Utilizes New Composite Material with Fantastic Results
OMNICHROMA is a new, revolutionary composite material created by Tokuyama Dental.
Traditional composite materials used for fillings and direct bonding typically consist of color-matching a patient's existing teeth to ensure the restorations blend seamlessly into one's smile.
With OMNICHROMA, the universal composite material matches itself to a patient's existing teeth after curing — effectively eliminating the need to layer different colors of composite to match the shade.
As a Dental Product Evaluator for industry-leading publication Dental Product Shopper, Dr. Mohr was asked his opinion of this material, as he has been using it since it was released.
His patient's case photos were featured in the latest addition of Dental Product Shopper and Dr. Mohr said he looks forward to incorporating the OMNICHROMA system further into his practice.
The results he achieved were "the best we've ever seen," according to the magazine.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
We Raised Over $10,000 with Spin for Smiles!
Helping Operation Smile Reverse Facial Deformities in Children
Over the past 34 years, I have been fortunate to create many beautiful smiles for my patients, which has changed their lives forever. From raising their self-esteem, career enhancement, to even marriage. But there are less fortunate children who are born with oral facial defects that not only prevent them from getting proper nourishment, but also lead them to being rejected socially.
I created my Spin for Smiles Fund to raise money for Operation Smile – a global medical nonprofit organization that provides free surgeries for children around the world born with a cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities.
Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate – and many families can't afford the surgery they desperately need. In many places, children with cleft conditions are abandoned or abused. Many times, they have trouble eating and drinking and can struggle to survive. Those that do can face a lifetime of shame and torment.
They need our help, and our team — in addition to patients, business partners, and kind friends and neighbors — have donated to help bring hope and new smiles to children suffering from facial deformities.
We’ve raised over $10,000 so far — helping Operation Smile provide life-changing surgery and renewed hope for 41 children around the world.
Dr. Mohr Inducted into Prestigious Organization: The American Society for Dental Aesthetics
The staff of Smile Creations wishes to congratulate Dr. Allan Mohr, as he was recently inducted into the American Society of Dental Aesthetics at the national meeting in Florida on October 27, 2016. Dr. Mohr is now 1 of 6 dentists on all of Long Island who is now a member of this prestigious organization. He had to submit a variety of his actual cases for review by the Executive Membership Committee to be selected for membership.
Founded in 1976 by the “Father of Aesthetic Dentistry” and current president, Dr. Irwin Smigel, the ASDA is proud to be the first national society for cosmetic dentists that was established in the U.S. some 40 years ago. The ASDA is made up of members who share a lifelong commitment to learning and providing exceptional aesthetic and restorative dental care. Since that time, they have sought to constantly improve the field of dentistry through the exchange of information on the best practices, including innovative techniques, technologies, and other topics that are crucial to providing outstanding patient care and long-lasting aesthetic smiles.
Dr. Mohr, together with other nationally known cosmetic dentists who are committed to excellence, will continue to advance his knowledge in the field of cosmetic dentistry through additional continuing education.
Dr. Mohr Speaks at the Long Island Dental Hygiene Forum
Dr. Mohr spoke with the Long Island Dental Hygiene Forum on Sunday, November 6, 2016. The topic was What Happens When the Chair Goes Back and The Lights Come On, and 100 of Long Island’s best hygienists were in attendance. Techniques related to cosmetic and restorative dentistry were discussed, and Dr. Mohr enjoyed sharing his perspective and experiences to help others offer Long Island patients the best dentistry possible.
2020 Top Doctor and Dentist List
Congratulations To Dr Allan Mohr… Voted By His Peers And Selected To Top Dentists For Cosmetic And General Dentistry!
topDentists was started in January 2007 with the intent to identify the best dentists and specialists in the country, and it is the only list of its kind chosen by the dental profession itself.
topDentists has over fifty years of combined experience compiling peer-review referral guides in the legal, dental, and medical fields. Using this experience, along with the input of several prominent dentists in the United States, they have created a selection process that has been refined and improved over previous superlative guides. Because dentists must be voted in strictly by their peers, and virtually every dentist is given an opportunity to participate (listings cannot be purchased and no payment is required to be listed), inclusion in topDentists is considered to be a distinct honor. With a circulation of over 1 million and reaching nearly 10 million readers, topDentists is quickly becoming the most recognizable list of dentists in the U.S.
Who picks the doctors and dentists? A research and information company, Top Doc America, have published their first annual list titled "2020 Best Doctors & Dentists," which lists those whom Top Doc America has determined to be in the top 10% of the region's doctors and dentists.
How Does Top Doc America Decide Which Doctors and Dentists are the Best?
The firm conducts in-person interviews with the majority of winners and sends out thousands of nomination forms to medical professionals. The idea is that healthcare professionals are best qualified to judge other healthcare professionals, and if one recommendation is good (think of your doctor or dentist referring you to a specialist), multiple recommendations are better.
The firm also relies on patient reviews on websites such as: WebMD, Yelp, Rate MD, Health Grades, Google, Physician Reports, Dr. Oogle, and other leading independent healthcare rating companies. The interview asks recipients to nominate those doctors who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields--especially those to whom they would refer their own patients and family members. Doctors and dentists are asked not to nominate themselves; nominations are kept confidential.
Top Doc America asks the nominators to take into account not only professional qualifications and reputation (education, residency, board certification, hospital appointment, and disciplinary record, for example) but also skills in dealing with patients (listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, instilling trust and confidence). Top Doc America then tabulates the results and examines the nominee pool, confirming the doctors’ board-certification, licensing, and investigating their disciplinary history.
The main purpose of the award is to make it easier for the public to meet qualified doctors and dentists to help with the healthcare crisis. Top Doc America does not pick doctors and dentists based on their medical experience, rather it relies on the popularity that they have in their community and the willingness for them to help with the healthcare crisis.
