Dr. Andrea Mann‘s love of working with kids and science led her on the path to the best career ever, that of a pediatric dentist! From a young age, she has always been an avid reader and enjoyed hands-on arts, particularly ceramics, and caring for children – so becoming a pediatric dentist was a perfect way to combine all of those passions into one!
She received her Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 2004, and completed her two year Pediatric Dentist Specialty training program at Long Island Jewish Hospital in New York in 2006. Dedicated to pursuing excellence, she became a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist in 2008. In 2013, she opened Smile Works Pediatric Dentistry, her very own laser dentistry practice in Basking Ridge, New Jersey!
Dr. Mann serves as an Attending Doctor at Morristown Memorial Hospital, where she enjoys teaching pediatric dentistry to general dental residents. She hosts fun annual events for families, including a patient appreciation magic show, and has donated hundreds of pounds of candy through her Halloween Candy Buy Back Program. She also teaches children about keeping teeth healthy in school, daycare, and library settings.
In her free time, Dr. Mann enjoys spending time with her husband and their twin daughters. She loves reading, baking, going to the beach, and relaxing with her family.
