Mint Dental is dedicated and passionate about oral hygiene, and our mission is simple; to change the way it’s delivered to our patients. That’s why we use innovative treatment methods and an approach that’s heavily focused on reversing the effects experienced by gum disease and prevention over cure.

We know that the fear of pain or embarrassment of your gums and teeth might often create a barrier to you seeking appropriate dental care.

But don’t fear bad teeth or let throbbing, smelly gums hold you back from a cleaner and healthier oral state.

Even dentists experience plaque – there’s no judgement here! Instead, we want you to feel happy and confident that you’re in the right hands for getting problems like tooth decay and gum disease sorted.

“Met the new hygienist on her first day at the practice and found her very caring and thorough. Can find these cleans difficult (sensitivity) but Catla was very attentive. I also find the dentist Raj keen to explain any x-ray results and comments on the different treatments available and why he recommends a particular course.” – Pauline, Bermondsey.

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.

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.
