Smile Design

Dr. Jeff Golub-Evans

Dr. Jeff Golub-Evans is considered one of the premier smile design artists in the country. His smiles have adorned over 300 covers of beauty magazines. Using bonding, whitening, and porcelain veneers and crowns, and his pioneering work in smile design, he has provided thousands of dental makeovers from New York fashion models and rock stars to homemakers and business people.

Dr. Golub-Evans’ bonding and laminate makeovers have appeared on the pages of Glamour, Vogue, GQ, Bazaar, Real Simple, Lucky, Brides, Modern Bride, New Woman, McCall’s, Mirabella, Self, Health, Mademoiselle, American Health, The New York Times, Allure, Family Circle, Seventeen, YM, Complete Woman, First For Women, and more. He has appeared on Live with Regis, The Today Show, CBS Morning News, Inside Edition, Current Affair, American Journal, Good Morning America, Fox News, The Home Show, and numerous other news and talk shows.


Born in New York City to a Fauvist painter, Jeff Evans studied at Hamilton College, at the National Academy of Fine Arts and at New York University’s Graduate Division of Fine Arts. He studied printmaking with master printers Bob Blackburn and Krishna Reddy. Extensive travel in the United States, Europe, South America, Asia and a desire to capture the mood and rhythm of each location greatly influence his work. Evans often seeks out local materials and incorporates their energy into his art, including paint, paper and especially water from Venetian Canals, Indonesian Rice Paddies, Amazonian Mountain Stream and European Rivers.

Evans works have been held in private and corporate collections, including American Express, Republic Bank, The Hard Rock Café, Hyatt Hotels, Embassy Suites, as well as displayed on gallery and museum walls. Evans’ works have been represented by Michael & Lombardo Gallery on Madison Avenue, NYC; Artsee in the Meat Packing District, NYC; Mario Villa Gallery in Chicago, IL; Copiapo Gallery, Sedona, AZ; Artifacts Gallery, West Stockbridge, MA. Recently his woodcuts of Balinese scenes were acquired by the National Museum in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.

Weaving traditional media and contemporary themes into original compositions of astonishing depth, his pieces start with woodcuts or etchings, collaged, reworked and reincarnated through layering, pasting and rendering in acrylics and oils. In his “Reflections of Venice,” the brightly colored images mirror and capture the spirit of Venice to resonate like the disjointed memories of a dream. Each piece is like a classical fragment; a paean to spirit, starkly contrasted and far removed from its time. -Décor Magazine

As a sculptor, this year alone, Evans was commissioned to design, sculpt and cast an “Academy Award” to be given yearly for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. His two large fiberglass bears are currently on display for a public works project in Northwest Connecticut and he constructed a wooden Trojan horse for the Children’s Museum of Manhattan. He is currently planning a show of yoga figures for exhibits next year in Lower Manhattan, South Beach, Miami and Athens, Greece.

Dr. Golub-Evans’ credits include dental costuming for numerous theatrical and cinematic productions, including more than a dozen films and the dental special effects for the New York Shakespeare Festival and Broadway’s Tony Award winners, Les Misérables and Big River. He is the creator and patent holder of the Silkwrap technique, the first use of internal structural components for advanced composite techniques.
