"My experience at Mint Dentistry was WAY more than what I expected. I thought it was going to be a normal COLD emotionless dentist visit but NO this place is totally opposite. Its inviting, it doesn't even feel like your at a dentist when you walk in. The front desk personnel Ms. Samari and Ms. Jenah were full of smiles and performed customer service to the highest level. The dentist assistance Ms. Neon that was assigned to me, made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. With the massage chair while she took x-rays along with the option to watch Netflix. She's a diligent worker and enjoys what she does.My dental cleaning was done by someone who took perfectionism very serious. She kept x-raying her work to make sure she didn't miss a spot. That was impressive and showed she really cared.The Dentist Dr. Hunt was the man. As soon as he sat down and greeted me I knew I came to the right place. And after he completed my root canal and crown it was confirmed that I came to the right place. My tooth looks good.Well Done Mint Dentistry. Those radio commercials do actually live up to the hype. Well Done!"- G.O. / Google / Aug 30, 2019

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 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.

Since a dental exam is so important to your oral health, it is typically covered by dental insurance. MINT dentistry will work with your dental insurance company to determine your coverage and any out-of-pocket costs.

An added bonus to visiting for your yearly dental exams is free teeth whitening.
