"Let's start off by saying I'm 23 years old haven't been to the dentist and 12 years needed quite a bit of work done.. when I came to this location a week ago I was very nervous and scared not knowing what's to come and afraid of the judgment of my teeth condition, but on my first visit was very surprised on how welcoming and nice front woman were Kelly and Jessica made me feel very welcomed. I was called to the back to meet Doctor Barrett and ms Gracie both amazing women getting right to work while making you feel right at home but also being like a mother and telling you what you need to do lol.. on my second visit I came in to get a root canal and three fillings I was there for 3 hours because it was very busy, it didn't feel like it though I was being talked to Non-Stop and they engage very well into their customers long story short they fixed my three front teeth cavities so now I can smile without feeling judged in a root canal that was needed I feel amazing and I love this location will never go to any other one...."- J.S. / Google / Nov 30, 2019

What to Expect
To protect your eyes from our work lights, you'll wear a pair of stylish MINT sunglasses during your dental exam as you sit back in a massaging treatment chair. Your exam will begin as your dentist evaluates your teeth, gums, and jaw while you watch a show or jam out with a pair of our Beats headphones. Next, a member of the MINT dentistry team will use digital x-rays to get a better view of your teeth and check for abnormalities. The dentist will then evaulate your head and neck, particularly your jawbone and bite. Your dentist will go over your results and, if a problem is diagnosed, your treatment options will be reviewed. Your dentist will ask about your overall health, including current medications and supplements since this may affect your dental health. Finally, your dentist will examine any restorations you have, like a crown or bridge, to see if they need to be repaired or replaced.
As long as we don't find any problems, 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 oral exams and professional cleanings every six months at MINT dentistry. Most patients only need an exam twice a year, but MINT dentistry may suggest scheduling exams more often for patients with certain oral health problems. If our team does find a problem, treatment options will be discussed and scheduled. As an example, if there is a cavity in your tooth, you'll be asked to schedule an appointment for a tooth-colored filling to treat it.
