"I absolutely adored Nikki! This was my second cleaning at this office (Mint Dentistry in general) and she was so very gentle when cleaning my teeth. I’m not afraid of the dentist but if I was I would tell any/everyone to see her. I also loved the dentist that briefly visited with me, I’m sad to say I didn’t get his name. He was so nice and had huge smiles. I loved listening to the banter in the office as I relaxed in my chair."- T. / Google / Oct 29, 2022
"I have bee hearing Mint Denistry advertisements on the radio for a few years and finally decided to schedule a cleaning appointment. The staff was very friendly and professional, from the receptionist when i entered the office on down to the x-ray tech and the hygienist and the dentist. I knew that i would need a deep cleaning and i hate going to the dentist. After the x-rays and the exam it was determined that i needed a deep cleaning and a filling. I became super nervous when i realized the dentist would have to give me shots in my gums. The dentist knew i was nervous and she was so comforting while giving me the shots. The hygienist was also comforting during the cleaning. She talked to me the whole time explaining what she was doing. Thanks to the North Richland Hills staff for the good experience!"- D.S. / Google / Oct 15, 2022

Children can have cavities and tooth decay as young as 24 months of age. MINT dentistry recommends scheduling your child's first visit when they are around 18 months old, so a board-certified MINT dentist can make sure there are no overbite problems or structural issues. Children usually keep their primary teeth for several years, so it's a good idea to make sure they remain in good health until their permanent teeth have grown in. This means visiting our office twice a year for exams and cleanings.
What to Expect
Before our team of talented dental professionals begins your child’s dental exam, we will make sure they feel safe and comfortable. Our team will talk to your child and explain what is happening so they are part of the process. Your child will be given a pair of MINT sunglasses and asked to relax in one of our super comfy treatment chairs. A MINT dentistry team member will first perform a basic examination of your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw before performing a cleaning. Fluoride rinses, dental sealants, or other proactive treatments might be suggested to help protect and strengthen your child's enamel as their permanent teeth come in. Should our team identify a concern, a customized treatment plan will be created with your child’s utmost care and comfort in mind. MINT dentistry is dedicated to using the newest dental technology, equipment, and techniques to make sure your family's dental treatments are quick and comfortable but still highly effective.
If one of our dental professionals detects a problem during your child’s routine exam and cleaning, we will ask you to schedule an appointment for a follow-up procedure. Our MINT team of dentists is experienced at providing comprehensive and compassionate dental care. If your child requires care after an injury, an orthodontic treatment like Invisalign®, or a simple tooth-colored filling, our office is ready to help. For optimal oral health, our team of board-certified MINT dentists recommends you schedule dental cleanings in six-month intervals and dental exams once a year for every member of your family. Aftercare following a regularly scheduled dental exam or cleaning includes a dedicated at-home oral health regimen, as instructed by the MINT dentistry team.
The MINT Commitment
Preventive treatments like annual exams and twice-yearly cleanings for children are usually covered by your dental insurance provider. For any procedures or recommended treatments, our MINT support staff will contact your provider to calculate any additional costs. If you do not have dental insurance, we accept several payment options to help make your child's dental care easier to afford. MINT dentistry feels that a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth are priceless, so we're dedicated to helping you afford both. Speak with a member of our MINT dentistry team for more information on our affordable dentistry plans.
