"THEY MADE MY TEETH GREAT AGAIN! I spent a week to find me a good dental service in Lake Worth area. I went to many places, but the one that got my attention was Mint Dentistry. When I first came in, I like the way the lobby is set up; everything is clean and shiny. At the reception, there was a black queen along with a white queen who received me and got my insurance information. They set me for an appointment. When I came the next day for my first visit. A lady name Liz who teamed up with another one named Daniela did my x-ray. Then after that, Doctor Sivakumar came and explained everything about the health of my teeth. They were very professional and helpful with my treatment. They really know and are good at what they do. They cleaned my teeth and made them great again. After the process, I didn’t feel any pain at all and my teeth look very good now thanks to them."- G.A. / Google / Jan 24, 2024

Children can have cavities and tooth decay as young as two years old. 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 development problems. Children usually keep their baby teeth for a while so it's important that they remain in good health while they wait for their adult teeth to grow in. This includes visiting our office for an annual pediatric exam and biannual cleanings.
What to Expect
When it's time for your child's exam and cleaning, we want to help them feel safe so they have a positive experience. We will explain everything that is being done and why so they feel more comfortable with the process. They will put on MINT sunglasses and be asked to relax in one of our super comfy treatment chairs. One of our MINT team members will first perform a simple exam of your child’s mouth followed by a professional cleaning. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants might be recommended to help protect the teeth as your child grows older. If we find a concern, we'll develop a personalized plan for treatment that focuses on your child's needs and comfort level. MINT dentistry is committed to using the most advanced dental technology available in the industry to ensure our pediatric procedures are effective but also fast and comfortable.
Should we find a problem during your child's oral health exam, you may need to schedule an appointment for a follow-up procedure. All of your MINT dentistry professionals are experienced at meeting all the dental care needs of your family. If your child requires teeth straightening, a tooth-colored filling, or treatment for a cracked tooth, we are 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 daily home care routine, which we will help demonstrate to your child.
The MINT Commitment
Pediatric exams once a year along with cleanings twice a year are usually included if you have dental insurance. If a treatment or procedure is required, our MINT support staff will speak to your provider to calculate what is covered and any remaining cost. If you don't have dental insurance, MINT dentistry takes several payment options to help make your child's dental care easier to afford. MINT dentistry believes that a healthy mouth and beautiful smile are priceless so we're dedicated to helping you. Ask our team for more information on our affordable dentistry plans.
