"The location was very nice and I had a more than pleasant visit!!! It was a bit difficult to find if you've never been there before, but we ended getting there! I felt welcome as soon as I walked in, it definitely was not your typical dental office. I came in interested in braces and the different options I might have for my son in regards to them. I feel like i wasn't shorted one single detail. The young lady Bridget (sp?), was very helpful in explaining the different options. I felt so good about the process that we felt we had no choice but to start that day! Once my son got back, it seemed as if the initial process was very time efficient. I know nothing about the process of putting braces on, but I figured it would've taken much longer! That was a huge factor for me, it seemed the staff cared about me and my time, which you don't get most places. They made us feel like we were the number one priority! According to my son, Jenna was simply outstanding, he said has ever felt so comfortable in a dental office. (And this HUGE, because this boy fears the school nurse) lol. He went on and on about how nice and "cool" she was and she made him feel good about being there. I think this is a huge testament to her outstanding customer service. When I spoke with her, I could instantly tell that he didn't just maybe have a crush, she was so informative and made sure he knew how to take care of his new hardware, I think she made him very aware of how to take care of them and he now knows what to eat and not to eat! So hopefully he listens and we only have to come in for our scheduled appointments. Overall it was a outstanding experience, I will be telling anyone and everyone I know about Orthodontics at Mint, and I will definitely be bringing my other children in for braces when it is their turn!!! Thanks Mint! Thanks Jenna!!!"- G.O. / Google / May 03, 2019
"Mint Orthodontics was an amazing experience, dentistry in luxury for sure. Dr. B, Brigette, Tasha and Jena were AWESOME!!"- D.S. / Google / May 03, 2019
"I love this office and the team! My experience was more then what I was expecting from a dental office. From the posh decor down to the energetic personalities that work there. Brigette Portier explained everything necessary so that I could fully understand my orthodontic treatment plan. She was super patient and went beyond for me. I love this place and would recommend friends and family or anyone that is looking to better their smiles and oral health!"- J.W. / Google / Apr 03, 2019
When To Seek Treatment?
MINT Orthodontics's team of professionals recommend that you have your child evaluated for orthodontic treatment close to seven years old. Occasionally, our team may suggest the evaluation be performed earlier. A thorough examination will be performed so we can see how the gums, jaw, and teeth are forming so we can customize an orthodontic treatment plan. Scientific research has proved that dental development is critical from age 7 – 11 years old. A consultation with an orthodontist early on gives you the opportunity to plan for developing needs and know what could be an issue before it's time to get an orthodontic treatment. Even though some patients will not require an orthodontic treatment before they are 13 years old, intervening early may help to avoid problems like overcrowding. Your dental team may need to extract one or more teeth to allow space for ideal alignment. Having orthodontics early also helps improve a misaligned bite and finishes their orthodontic treatment allows patients to get the treatment out of the way early.
Why Are Orthodontics Needed?
For our patients, there are many reasons why orthodontics are needed and/or desired. A few of the most common reasons people need or want an orthodontic treatment are overcrowded or overlapping teeth, large spaces between teeth, an underbite or overbite, buck teeth (upper dental protrusion), as well as a cross bite. Invisalign® clear aligners or braces can create a straighter smile. At your consultation, our team will diagnose your specific problem and explain which orthodontic treatments will get your teeth in alignment.
Why MINT Orthodontics?
To suit every patients needs and wants, MINT Orthodontics offers both the Invisalign® system of clear aligners and traditional braces. As soon as your orthodontist crafts your unique treatment plan and gives you your first set of Invisalign® clear aligners or applies your braces, you'll be asked to come back for a series of appointments so your orthodontic team can track the changes in your teeth. Your team of orthodontic dental professionals are experienced, well-trained, and skilled in getting patients their best results.
