"My experience at mint dental in Pasadena was the best experience at a dentist office of my 57 years Dr.j.phan was very knowledgeable and professional. His assistant as well my blood pressure was high he taught me how to breath. To bring it down using ti chi techniques and meditation the whole prosecutor was painless I highly recommend this dentist to one and all my only regret is all I can rate him is 5 stars the office alone rates 5 the entire staff also rates5 and the whole music sunglass gift deal really is an extra perk .not to mention I would hang out there just for fun."- L.R. / Google / Nov 30, 2023

"I don't usually provide reviews on Google but I think this is worth mentioning. I originally saw a different dentist at the Pasadena location earlier this year. When my procedure was scheduled, it was with a different provider which made me nervous. Dr. Je and the staff at this location took extra precaution making sure I was comfortable moving forward with the procedure. Dr. Je showed patience and understanding ensuring I was informed during the entire procedure relieving my anxiety."- D.B. / Google / Jul 25, 2023

What to Expect
To protect your eyes from our work lights, you'll wear a pair of stylish MINT sunglasses throughout your examination as you sit back in a massaging treatment chair. Your examination will start as your dentist evaluates your teeth, gums, and jaw while you watch a show or listen to music through Beats headphones. Then, we will use digital x-rays to get a better view of your teeth and check for abnormalities. The dentist will then evaulate your neck and head, particularly your jawbone and bite. Your dentist will discuss your exam results and, if a problem is diagnosed, your options for treatment will be explained. Your dentist will ask about your overall health, including current medications and supplements since this may affect your dental health. Lastly, we will evaluate dental restorations, like a crown or bridge, to see if they need to be repaired or replaced.
As long as we don't find any problems, you should follow a good home care routine of flossing and brushing at least two times every day. You also need to make appointments for oral exams and professional cleanings every six months at our office. Typically, patients only need an exam two times every year, but we might recommend getting exams more frequently if you have serious oral health conditions. If we do find a problem, your options for treatment will be explained and planned. As an example, if there is a cavity in your tooth, you'll be asked to make an appointment for a tooth-colored filling to treat it.
