Mint Dental SE1


Dental Hygienists Available Right Now in London

  • Treat halitosis (bad breath)
  • Reverse gingivitis and prevent gum disease
  • Keep tooth decay, infections and dental problems at bay
  • Whiten the surface of your smile with professional tooth cleaning
  • Scale and polish treatments from just £40

Look, we know that a trip to the dentist, let alone a dental hygienist’s, is not likely to be ranked highly on your never-ending to-do list.

But if you could see your leg, for example, decaying, you’d do something about it, and the same should be said for your teeth!

Teeth are essential, and the condition of your oral health ensures they stay in position and function as designed. And it’s our job as dentists to educate our patients on the consequences of ignoring dental decay and gum disease.

When these conditions go undiagnosed or ignored, your oral structure can begin to break down, causing teeth to shift out of position or, more frighteningly, fall out.

Conditions like gum disease can only be reversed in the beginning stages (gingivitis); once we’ve passed this point, we will only be able to manage your symptoms and not treat them without costly specialist intervention. So save your teeth and, in the process, time and money.

We wouldn’t be dentists if we didn’t love teeth, so please, listen to our gentle reminder to book yourself in for a hygienist appointment, especially if you are overdue for one. Let’s save you money and, in the process, keep your smile brighter, whiter and cleaner for decades to come.


We’re a very loved South East London practice

“My entire family is treated here, and we’ve had great experiences with the hygienist and Dr Patel. Dr Patel has been lovely with our two young children and treated me for a root canal repair and crown fitting. He was thorough, explained all of the options and the pros and cons, and his work was great. We will miss them when we move out of London shortly! Best dentist I’ve had in the UK.” – Tara, London.

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.

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.

Excellent dental practice. A very smartly turned-out surgery. Staff are polite and very professional. I am impressed with the modern teeth scanning equipment. Dr Raj Patel will put you at ease. He is highly professional dentist. I have no problem in recommending Dr Patel and the rest of the Mint team.

A dental team that really cares

We understand that patients often fear pain, or their bad teeth, which can be a significant barrier to patients seeking dental care. As local family dentists, we want to let you know that we’ve seen it all before and hold no judgements; we only care about creating smiles that function and are comfortable. We’re here for you.

We also offer innovative treatments and methods that lead with a gentle approach to focus on preventing painful conditions.

By choosing Mint Dental, you’ll benefit from direct access to an entire team of specialists with decades of combined experience in preventive and hygienist care. Together, we have helped improve the oral health of thousands of patients from all over London.

On top of this, our dentists are highly experienced and focused on restorative dentistry and preventive care, which means we have the cures and solutions to many common problems like missing teeth and periodontal disease.

We’re all registered with the GDC and regulated by the CQC, so you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands with us, especially as we’re the dentist for dentists.

Air polishing treatments with the dentist

Air polishing is a hygiene treatment we offer that uses gentle techniques to clean your smile. A targeted jet of compressed air mixed with water, sodium bicarbonate or glycine powders is applied to teeth to clean trapped food, plaque build-up and stains effectively – plus; it’s entirely pain-free.

As the treatment is so gentle, it’s also ideal for treating children who might have sensitive gums or teeth. But despite its gentleness, air polishing can remove the worst tooth stains from teeth often caused by coffee, tea, tobacco or red wine.
