"Great experience! I got my first filling and didn’t have any pain. They even used numbing cream for my deep cleaning. Staff was friendly and helpful! Would definitely recommend to anyone seeking a new dentist."- C.C. / Google / Apr 17, 2021
"In all honesty I am only giving 5 Stars because my Second experience was so much better than my First. Also because Taylor is amazing!!!! I booked an appointment at the Arlington location for a deep cleaning. The first Dentist that came in to numb my teeth was friendly but I have to say that the numbing process was terrible, I screamed and cried so horribly from the pain and discomfort. I was then introduced to the Amazing Taylor who deep cleaned my teeth. Taylor was very professional, honest, caring and I truly felt that he had my best interest at heart. He gained my trust very quickly. He was very discreet and checked on my mental state of mind the entire time. In fact this hygienist was so great that I decided to schedule my second appointment for deep cleaning at the Dallas location because Taylor is mobile and was scheduled to be in Dallas. I highly recommend this guy to anyone needing a thorough deep cleaning and I Salute Mint Dentistry for hiring him, Great choice!"- B.H. / Google / Apr 10, 2021

Your child can begin to develop cavities and tooth decay as early as two years old. MINT dentistry suggests you bring your child for their first visit by the time they are one and a half years old, so a MINT dental professional can start monitoring for issues like misalignment. Your child may have their baby teeth for many years, so it is important that they are healthy so their permanent teeth can grow in properly. This includes scheduling appointments for an annual pediatric exam and bi-annual cleanings.
What to Expect
When it's time for your child's exam and cleaning, we will help them feel safe and comfortable. We will tell your child what is going to happen at every step so they understand the process. They will get to wear MINT sunglasses while they sit back in a special treatment chair. One of our MINT team members will begin a simple exam of your child’s mouth followed by a professional cleaning. Proactive treatments like sealants or fluoride may be recommended to strengthen and protect your child's teeth as they develop. If your MINT dental team discovers an issue, we'll talk to you to create a treatment plan based on both what your child needs and what they can easily tolerate. We are committed to using advanced dental technology and modern techniques to ensure your child's routine care and treatments are effective but also fast and comfortable.
If your dentist diagnoses an issue at your child’s dental exam, you may need to schedule a follow-up appointment for treatment. All of your MINT dentistry professionals are skilled at meeting all the dental care needs of your family. If your child needs an orthodontic treatment, a filling for a cavity, or care after a dental injury, we are here to help. To maintain a healthy mouth, MINT dentistry recommends you make appointments at least twice a year for your child. Following a dental exam, cleaning, treatment, or procedure, we suggest following a daily routine of brushing and flossing, which our MINT dentistry team will help your child understand with education and demonstrations.
The MINT Commitment
Cleanings twice a year along with an annual pediatric dental exam are typically paid, fully or partially, by dental insurance. If a treatment or procedure is required, our office will reach out to your insurance company to determine what is covered and any remaining cost. If you aren't covered by dental insurance, our office accepts many payment methods so your family's dental care is easier to afford. MINT dentistry believes that good oral health and a great smile are invaluable assets, and we are committed to helping you.
