“I get the train into Waterloo every day for work and found Mint to be great when I needed an appointment during my lunch break for unbearable tooth pain. The practice is really close to my work and everything was sorted within the hour, which was great seeing as I didn’t have to take any time off work. Would recommend and use again. Nice to know they’re there.” Brian, commuter into Waterloo

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.

Best dentist I’ve ever had! Have completed a year of Invisalign with Dr Patel and he has been so reassuring and kind throughout. From the reception staff to hygenists they really go above and beyond to make you feel looked after and special. I couldn’t recommend them enough!

Over the past six years Dr Raj and Preanka and all of the team at Mint have been exceptional. Every member of the team is exemplary at their expertise and I've never felt in better hands at the dentist. Affordable and top of the range, I would recommend them to anyone.
