We were very excited to open Mint Dentistry Garland in late December because of the growing demand for the Mint experience in the far east Dallas suburbs. We knew a number of patients were driving from places like Rockwall to a Dallas or Plano Mint.
But we didn’t anticipate the demand was this big! Customer experience and referrals had us rocking from day one! Patients started coming from not just Garland, but Rowlett, Rockwall, Mesquite, Royse City, Wylie, Heath and Forney as well.
We’re now incredibly convenient to you, located on Bass Pro Drive just off Highway 30. We’re hard to miss but if you see a parking lot of cars filled shotguns and fishing rods and people wearing camo clothing, you’ve gone to far. Turn around and come back several hundred yards.
People love us because when they walk in the door, they know instantly they’re not in a typical dentist’s office. First off, the interior design was inspired by world famous decorator. The staff is super friendly and everyone is wearing Mint sunglasses to protect their eyes from the bright white smiles people are wearing to check out. You’ll be offered a free pair, as well as beat Headphones to your music or ours. You’ll also be offered an iPad so you can catch up on news or email.
“Free white teeth” is a term patients no longer believe because that offer always comes with strings attached. Like after you get a cleaning, or an x-ray or an exam, then you get “free white teeth.” But at Mint, if you have PPO dental insurance “Free White Teeth” is exactly that. Once you’re seated, we’ll take an impression of your mouth to create dental trays. And when you leave, you’ll take with you your dental trays and a couple of tubes of whitening gel. That’s it! Free white teeth. We don’t even bill your insurance company.
So while the service is friendly and smiling and wonderful, and the location is perfect and the atmosphere is high energy, it’s the dentists at Mint Garland that people fall in love with. They are incredibly trained, and because one of our unique features at Mint is that we practice team dentistry, a second opinion is just down the hall!
