Lilmike loved his Mint doctor.
Today, January 3, 2017 was my very first visit at Mint Dentistry and I must admit the commercials I heard on he radio are truly adequate. I personally enjoyed the care Doctor Lamastra provided, he was very patient and thorough. And Tiffany explained EVERY step of the cleaning process as she cleaned my teeth. I am looking forward to my next appointment in six months.
