"Best dental experience I’ve ever had. I haven’t been to the dentist since I was like 10, I’m 28 now. So obviously, I needed a serious cleaning. I was nervous about that & anything else they might’ve found. Man, let me just say, that cleaning was a breeze!! They made me more than comfortable! They also gave me a dental plan. Which idk if that’s a normal thing or not, but I really appreciated that so much! I was scared i was gonna be overwhelmed with the costs of everything but the it was mapped out & explained, I didn’t feel even a little overwhelmed. I’m really looking forward to going back & getting my dental health on track. Thank you MINT Dentistry from the bottom of my heart!"- C.M. / Google / Apr 29, 2023

"I can honestly say this was an excellent experience. I was greeted by Kasha she's the (RDA) and she did my extras. Kasha also introduced Teanna a (Intern) shadowing her today. From there I was taking to my examining room where my additional x-rays were taken. I was then met by Dr. Tran who had a GREAT bedside manner and his expertise with dental care was PHENOMENAL. After Dr. Tran broke down what I'd be needing done to restore my bite, and bone density health Jake walked in. Jakes the (Office Manager) not Jake from State Farm guys lol. He was just as hospitable as everyone else. Lastly was this very vibrant gentleman that came In introduced himself as well to me also. His name was Isai the (Hygienist). Isai's disposition was Amazing. He was bubbly, polite, made sure I was comfortable throughout my entire hygienic exam and cleaning. I also wanna include Marisol (Front Desk Assistant) even though I have only spoke with her over the phone once she is also very friendly. I do have a breakdown of work that I need to do that will help reconstruct my teeth and the bone density with my gums. I'm thankful that I actually found Mint Dentistry. I will definitely recommend."- J.S. / Google / Mar 27, 2023

What to Expect
You will be given a pair of our swanky MINT sunglasses to wear during your oral health examination as you relax in one of our luxurious treatment chairs. Your exam will begin with an overall evaluation of your mouth and teeth while you catch up on your favorite shows beneath our flat-screen televisions or jam out with a pair of our Beats headphones. Next, a member of the MINT dentistry team will take digital x-rays of your mouth and screen for abnormal tissue. You can expect an evaluation of your head and neck, including your jaw, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and bite. A MINT dental professional will go over your results and, if any problems are found, your treatment options will be reviewed. We will discuss any health problems you have, including any medications you may be taking and how they might impact your oral health. Finally, your dentist will examine any restorations you have, like dentures or a bridge, to check the fit and wear.
If our team does not identify any dental issues, then the only aftercare necessary would be to continue a regimen of home oral care, which includes brushing and flossing twice a day. You should also continue to schedule bi-annual dental exams and cleanings at MINT dentistry. Most patients will only need a dental exam twice a year, but MINT dentistry may suggest scheduling exams more often for patients with certain oral health problems. If our team does see something that needs to be addressed, treatment options will be discussed and scheduled. For example, if a cavity is found, you will need to schedule an appointment to have it treated with a tooth-colored filling.

MINT dentistry will work with your dental insurance company to determine your coverage and any out-of-pocket costs. If you do not have dental insurance, we offer the MINT Discount Plan that features large discounts on most every dental procedure at MINT.
