LOVE MINT DENTAL!!!! Moved to Houston from NY a couple of years ago and have been on the search for the perfect dentist since then. Welp, I’ve found it in Dr. Zarrabi. Before finding Mint Dental, I went to this chain-like dental practivce, they had all the bells and whistles, but I always left feeling like I’ve been ripped off and the cleanings sucked. So, I searched and found Mint Dental…and, its super close to my job. Scheduling an appt was a BREEZE, Christy was super helpful and got me right in. My 1st visit was an exam and a cleaning. Let me tell you Dr. Zarrabi is THOROUGH!!! I love it. You can tell he really cares about the health of your teeth. He’s EXCELLENT. My teeth felt like marble floors! Also, the assistant Monica…LOVE HER! Super sweet, funny and also thorough. During my exam, we found that I had some cavities (damn you Sour Gummy Worms), they were cognizant of my insurance and squeezed me in before my benefits ran out for the year…SWEET! Believe it or not, I am actually looking forward to my next cleaning. Yes, I’m a weirdo. But, I genuinely enjoy this practice. I’m glad I found them

I hadn’t been to the dentist in a few years (okay fine, more than a few years) and was worried about my dental health but finally made an appointment to see Dr. Zarrabi. I walked in feeling extremely apprehensive and having nightmarish visions about the horrible procedures I would need after avoiding dentists for so long. I needn’t have worried! Everyone was super friendly and wonderful. Mel the receptionist, Monica the dental assistant, Hayley the hygienist, and of course Dr. Zarrabi himself, were all so patient and professional. I never felt that anyone was trying to rush through the appointment. They asked mindful questions and made sure all my concerns were addressed. They took the time to assess literally each one of my teeth to show me potential issues. Hayley’s teeth cleaning was painless yet thorough. Nobody was judgmental about the embarrassingly long time that had elapsed since my last dental visit. Overall they put me at ease and told me that my teeth were just fine! I wish I’d gone sooner instead of worrying for so long. I’m so glad I found Mint Dental. As long as they’re in business I’m going to be coming back every 6 months to take care of my pearly whites!

Dr. Zarrabi and his staff are wonderful. I was instantly comfortable when I walked in the door. The office space has soft colors and is calming. The music was right up my alley. Claudia, Amy, and Christy were friendly and helpful. I learned all kinds of things about my teeth and how to take care of them. It seems funny that I never learned how to properly floss my teeth until Amy showed me. Dr. Zarrabi was incredibly professional. I appreciated the time he took to look at each tooth on the x-rays and photos. I’ve never seen my teeth in that way, and it was eye-opening. I will be going back soon for a few preventative measures. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking a dentist.

I moved into the area this year & was in need of a new dentist close to home. I searched Yelp & Online reviews looking for a match between dental providers that both had excellent reviews & were in network for my dental provider. There were so many reviews out there that were dated so I paid special attention to those that were recent & consistent over time. Dr. Zarrabi, Monica & Tanya were all super professional, friendly & knowledgeable. As a new patient, they did tell me to expect & plan on a 2 hour visit, so i arrived on time, with my forms filed out. It was 2 hours of actual one on one time (no waiting around), so plan on the duration they estimate, it is accurate. There was a very short 5min wait upon arrival & they offered coffee & other beverages in the pristine & comfortable waiting room. Monica did the detailed x-rays, and Dr. Zarrabi performed a very comprehensive exam & explained & answered all the questions i had. I am very satisfied & will be referring my family & friends to Dr. Zarrabi & Mint Dental.

Victoria A. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Zarrabi and his staff are fantastic! I started visiting this dental office a few months ago and each time, I was greeted by professional and pleasant receptionists. The dental assistants were always informative and explained each step of the procedure. Dr. Zarrabi is very gentle, meticulous and makes sure you are comfortable. I had to take a few breaks since my jaw hurt a little, and he did not seem to be bothered at all. He made sure I experienced as little pain as possible and took his time. I am not hard to please, but I do appreciate great customer service, professionalism and outstanding results – Ok, so maybe a little hard to please. I also had the BEST cleaning ever here! I would (and already do) highly recommend this dental office to my family and friends!

Keisha T. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I had a great experience with Dr Zarrabi and all the staff I interacted with at Mint Dental Works. From the moment I called to set my appointment the responsiveness and efficiency was above expectations. I made appointments for myself and my husband and we were both seen on time and every effort was made to handle both our visits so that I actually got out 30 mins earlier. I believe I had an interaction with almost every member of the team and all seemed extremely proficient in their roles. Dr Zarrabi was friendly, knowledgeable, concerned and answered my questions expansively and without hesitation. His assistants were kind and genuinely concerned for my comfort. Ami the Dental Hygienist was excellent. I’m so pleased with the results and, best of all, there was no judgement anywhere. It also helps that the office is high tech, nicely designed and the view from the chair was pleasant through the picture window.

Amanda F. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have never enjoyed going to the dentist. Mint Dental has given me a fresh perspective on dentists. Everything about this place is fantastic. The front office staff is so accommodating. The waiting room is like an art museum. They have a nice nook with coffee and cold drinks for you while you wait (I was offered a beverage twice while I was in the chair). The office has a wonderful view- natural light, tons of windows, it’s on the second floor so when you look out the windows all you see is sunlight and trees:) Monica, their assistant, is about the most caring hygienist I’ve ever encountered. I think she thanked me 10 times while taking my ex rays, and constantly asked me if I was ok or needed a drink. Dr.Z was so incredibly thorough. I honestly didn’t know that I’d been brushing my teeth the wrong way! He helped patiently explain what I needed to be doing, how to do it the right way, and how to better take care of my teeth. I’m confident that at my next visit I’ll be in better shape. Christy, the office manager, helped me plan the best way to get my work done. She also helped me figure out the best time to do the work- not more than 2 hours at a time. Honestly, this place is a dentistry office that offers wellness and preventative care. It doesn’t make for return customers, but if I can get my teeth healthy I might come in just for extra cleanings and spend some time in the SUPER EXRA COMFY chairs they have in their patients room. I would HIGHLY recommend this place. Go now

First of all, I HATED the dentist. With that being said, Dr. Zarrabi and his staff have changed that. Now, I hate every dentist except Mint 🙂 When you walk in their office, you are greeted right away with a smile, and treated like you are more than just a number. I was offered a beverage immediately. They have a drink cooler, and hot tea/coffee maker at a bar right there for you to sip on while you wait, which isn’t long at all. The floors are bamboo, and the office doesn’t have all the dental advertisements or rotten teeth all over the place. It’s very modern and Zen like. Very cool. The dental assistant was great, & very careful knowing I have dental sensitivities. The Doctor took plenty of time with me explaining exactly what was going on in my mouth. They took ex rays and pictures of my teeth so I could see for myself exactly what they saw on a monitor. I also was a little chilly, so I was given a big comfy blanket as I laid back and had my cleaning. It felt more like I was at a spa. They gave me sunglasses to keep my eyes from being exposed to the light. I was so comfortable, I was actually enjoying the nap I was taking while my teeth were being cleaned. I’ve had plenty of dental experiences in my day, so trust me, if I say it’s good, you can believe it. You can also schedule online! That’s a huge perk! I’m serious when I say I’m actually looking forward to going back to the dentist

Kiran N. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Let me be honest, I hate the dentist office, it is never a welcomed experience…BUT Mint Dental Works is completely a different experience. Firstly, this place is clean (neat freaks dream) and I love the color combo! Secondly, the staff is so friendly and explains everything even the billing! Finally and mostly importantly, Dr. Zarrabi’s bed side manners are amazing! He is the type of dentist that explains the procedure and answers all your questions! Actually, he answered all my questions, before I even asked them. I am the type of person that asks alot of questions for any medical procedure and I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Zarrabi was addressing them as they were popping in my head. For once, I only had two question and he answered them clearly! I, now, don’t dread going to the Dentist!! Thanks guys, keep up the amazing work!

Alyssa P. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Before moving to Houston a few years ago, I had gone to the same dentist my whole life, so I was a little nervous about having to find a new one. I found Dr. Zarrabi and Mint Dental Works online and decided to make an appointment because of their great patient reviews. They definitely lived up to my high expectations! The front desk staff and hygienists were very friendly and engaging. They made you feel very comfortable and explained everything they were doing. I also liked that I was given dark glasses so that the overhead lights weren’t shining into my eyes while they were working. Dr. Zarrabi was very professional and explained everything he was seeing and watching for on each tooth. He gave great recommendations for cavity prevention and teeth whitening, as well. I found out I had a cavity at my first appointment, and the process of having it filled was completely painless and easy. I highly recommend Mint Dental Works for a fantastic dental experience!

Pauline C. from Merrimack, NH (Source: Yelp)


I am a former patient of Dr. Zarrabi, unfortunately I moved and could not clone him and take him with me, as I believe he is the best dentist I’ve ever had in the States. I lived in Germany for 20 years so my standards for healthcare are high and he certainly fits these standards. His office is immaculately clean and comfortable and reflects the thought and energy he invests back into his patients. The individual exam rooms are spacious and airy. I’ve been crammed into tiny cubicles with dentists and hygienists that have actually turned away and watched the TV screen or talked to others while operating or working on my teeth… Not at Mint, it’s all about the teeth and it should be! He and his staff are extremely focused and attentive. The appointments were well-organized, so I never had to wait and overlap with other patients. He is the most thorough dentist I have ever experienced. Calling him competent is an under-statement. Highly-skilled -he’s all that. Basically, I describe him as unbelievable, because I’ve never had a dentist like him. And, I have had so many dentists doing sloppy work and mis-diagnosing problems causing a lot of pain and expense of which I’ve truly wondered how they are allowed to practice medicine. Unlike other dentists who are often dismissive, he really listens to your concerns and thinks them over. He will pull up your x-rays and photos on the screen at your seat so you can visualize what he is explaining. He takes time to go over treatment options and gives sound advice and recommendations. I definitely feel he is trustworthy. Technically, when he did my fillings, he was patient and extremely careful and had his staff follow-up. The hygienist I had (don’t remember her name) was also top-notch. I would highly recommend Dr. Zarrabi. Mint Dental should be the proto-type for how to run an office and practice medicine. Sorry for the long review but having bad experiences with a new dentist and in comparison thought I should give his office a long overdue shout out for their excellent work. I never thought I could miss a dentist, but after being his patient and then having to go somewhere else ~made me sad and long for Mint Dental

Philip G. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


My experiences with Dentists over the past eleven years that I’ve lived in Houston have ranged from nightmarish, to would-be-great if only it weren’t for X, Y, or Z issues – a great Dr. with a terrible assistant; a good Dr. and good assistant with a bad front office; a depressing, dated practice housed in some windowless space; etc. I bet most people reading this review can relate. Mint changes all of that. My experience at Mint has been absolutely fantastic! It is the kind of practice that you find and hope that it never moves or shut its doors. It is simply the answer to, “What would I want from an ideal Dentist?”. The practice is conveniently located for any inner loop Houston resident; it is bright, lined with windows facing trees and greenery; and, it is state of the art. When was the last time a Dr. took high resolution color photographs of each of your teeth and went over them with you one by one? When was the last time you sat in a dental chair and felt like you were on the showroom floor at Relax The Back (I’m 6’4″ tall and these are the first dental chairs my feet don’t hang off of)? If your last dental visit was to Mint, you’d be smiling at these questions. Dr. Zarrabi and his team are refreshingly competent, professional, kind, and patient. I am grateful to them for doing such wonderful work – for making me feel educated and comfortable rather than vulnerable and nervous. This team goes the extra mile, and they know it. They are proud of it! Mint could serve as a role model for any medical practice. I cannot recommend them enough and I wish them the greatest success

Just finished up my first visit to Mint Dental Works and had a great experience! I was slightly early for my 7:30 am appointment but Monica graciously let me in and offered me a beverage. I was promptly taken back and had a full set of x-Rays taken as well as pictures (I must say their tech set up is very nice!). Dr. Zarrabi then came in and complete an exam. Both he and Monica were very gentle. After that, Dr. Zarrabi went through his findings and explained things to me in a way I understood. He used pictures and demonstrated what he was talking about. Once I was filled in on my dental health, we moved on to the cleaning. My experience with Mint was smooth and easy! They communicated via email and text (which was really great) and were very helpful in explaining my options. I would completely recommend them to anyone looking for dentist!

Amanda A. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I had a bad experience at another dentist and found Mint Dental based on reviews found on Yelp. First off, the office is very modern and clean. A beverage station is available when you arrive. I only had to wait briefly until I was called in for my appointment. During the first appointment, they are very thorough, taking many x-rays and photos of your teeth. Dr. Zarrabi goes through all aspects of your oral hygiene, and explains what it all means so that it is easily understandable. The staff also goes over all aspects of billing based on what insurance covers so that there are no surprises at the end. I had a cleaning done as well as fillings. Dr. Zarrabi was considerate of my time as well as comfort levels. He definitely made going to the dentist a lot more pleasant.

David H. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I must admit, my teeth are challenging. I brush and floss, but I’ve been plagued since I was a child by cavities, chipped and broken teeth. Since moving to the area in ’89, I’ve been to a healthy handful of dentists. I’m pretty picky when it comes to treatment, bedside manner, staff, and overall experience. Rarely do I visit the same dentist twice. Now, however, I feel like I have found the dentist who will treat me for the rest of my life. Dr. Zarrabi’s office is located in an office building on Memorial and Detering, just a song from downtown. Visitor parking is plentiful. Dr. Zarrabi and his staff are all very nice. A very laid back atmosphere, and I’ve not had to wait. Always easy in and out. My experiences there couldn’t have been better. He has state of the art equipment, an amazing gentle technique…and he has never been shaming, nor has he tried to up-sell me. I’ve had cavities filled, old cavities removed, some bonding, and a fantastic whitening. I’ve referred some family and friends, and they have all been thrilled! I wish yelp had a sixth star.

Brian M. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


This place is everything… and once again, Yelpers, you didn’t let me down! As I was moving to Houston, I hit Yelp first to look for recommendations on a new dentist. You steered me here, and I want to thank you. I just had my second visit, and this place is amazing! I’ll start with Dr. Zarrabi himself. I am a middle-aged guy who has had more dental work than Britain. So I know dentistry as a patient. I have to tell you, honestly, that Dr. Zarrabi is perhaps the best yet… and I’ve had some world-class dentists! He took the time to go over a complete treatment plan with me, he spent time with me for questions, and he explains everything. He made recommendations for daily habits, and was incredibly friendly. His team did intraoral photos of each tooth as well so he could show me the areas that he thought needed attention… and he saw things on the X-rays that I could barely make out. Eagle-eyed. During a routine filling, I couldn’t even feel the injection for the anesthetic! That’s how good he is… I’ve never had that before! And I didn’t feel a single thing from the filling itself — not even pressure. Maybe he’s magic. I don’t know. I just know that he’s damned good. And then the staff is amazing too. Aside form being incredibly friendly, they go above and beyond to make sure that you are informed. They err on the side of caution — you’ll sign waiver for regular anesthetic — but the experience is great. No one likes going to the dentist, but with this office, it’s as pleasant as can be. Thank you, fellow Yelpers!

Mint Dental works is great! The office is beautiful, clean, and modern. There is also a variety of beverages provided in the waiting room. Dr. Zarrabi was very knowledgeable. He gave a throughout exam and provided detailed information on what was best for my mouth health. I felt that he was there to listen to my concerns and answer any questions. The appointment was not rushed. The entire staff was personable and kind. I would definitely recommend Min Dental Works to anyone.

Great staff, clean office, thorough exam and cleaning! I hadn’t gone to the dentist in over 3 years because I hadn’t found a good dentist/hygienist in many years. I’m so happy my friend recommended Mint Dental Works. I’m very pleased that I don’t have to dread going to the dentist anymore. They took time to thoroughly explain everything and I didn’t feel overwhelmed or intimidated when I left the office. I highly recommend Mint Dental Works!

Amy C. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Okay, so I put off going to the dentist for well over a year after moving to Houston, but I finally women-ed up and made an appointment for a preventative visit and cleaning. I chose Mint Dental Works mostly based on the Yelp reviews and the photos of their office. Now having been through my initial visit, I have to say WOW! I totally agree with all the other reviews. From walking into the office to having my exam/cleaning and checking out at the front desk, I felt very welcomed and comfortable. Monica was quick and gentle with x-rays and really friendly. Dr. Zarrabi was warm, patient, and helpful with explaining as he went along. I sat in the chair very relaxed as they worked together. It was almost like a spa visit for my teeth!

Amanda H. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


I am not so sure who, exactly, looks forward to going to the dentist but I can tell you I actively worked to avoid going (especially when my former insurance company only covered the real life equivalent of Dr. Bender). How happy I was to find Dr. Zarrabi and his excellent reviews. To be honest I was a little worried they were too good of reviews but I can say that is not the case, he deserves all the stars. After sending my husband on a scouting visit first (see: active avoidance), I finally made my own appointment. Due to my active avoidance, there have been a couple of visits since that first one, but they all have been equally pleasant. Dr. Z takes his time, explains everything and is extremely concerned with his patient’s comfort and well-being. I have never really been involved in my dental treatment plan before except for “please tell me my teeth aren’t going to fall out!”, so this was nice change of pace. This type of care and attention to detail extends to all the staff as well as the beautifully appointed office itself. While the hours may not make it the easiest for someone who works to much to get quick appointments, the fact that you aren’t in a strip mall full of screaming kids more than makes up for that. Definitely a “boutique” type practice but perfect for anyone that either is avoiding their dental care or likes to be involved in every step of their treatment.

Mint Dental Works is truly as good as it gets! I cannot possibly give enough of the utmost praise to Dr. Zarrabi (Dr. Z is what I call him) and his entire staff and team!! Insert all the love emojis here!!! 10 out of 10 stars and exceptional in every way!! I was like you now, reading and google-ing reviews on top dentists in Houston and Dr. Zarrabi popped up. This was over two and a half years ago and I’m so glad I found Mint Dental Works. You are spot on when it comes to finding the best dentist in the business! Don’t go anywhere else! If only he could have been my dentist from the very beginning in my epic journey in and out of dentist chairs throughout my life?! I have literally had ALL the dental work done to my mouth known to man. I know my future/hypothetical children and their mouths are so screwed…that’s another story and clearly I don’t have good “teeth” genes. I digress…to going from pain and sorrow to now having a confident, healthy, and pretty smile is all worth it and thanks to Dr. Z and his team! Anyhow, seeing Dr. Z. has been a turning point and I’m so glad he is my dentist here in Houston and my permanent dental home. His location in Houston is perfect for me; right off of Memorial. Parking in the parking garage connected to the building is a breeze. His office hours and ease of booking appointments whether calling in and speaking to his professional team or booking online is awesome and convenient. Side note-they are on their A game when it comes to confirmations and follow ups. They send e-mails, text alerts, call aheads, and whatever works best for you communication wise. I need all three types of communication in my life and it’s comforting having a doctor’s office be organized and prompt. His office space is clean, chic, airy, and top notch with the tech savvy flair. The waiting room and lounge is open with plush seating but one never actually sits long before being whisked away to the back where your chair is awaiting you to be seen by Dr. Z himself or one of the amazing hygienist on his team. Don’t forget to enjoy a beverage or snack at the mini bar that they have set up in the waiting room and lounge area as well. They have so many choices of beverages like Perrier, flavored waters, etc. So cute and a nice added touch to have while waiting or to take after your appointment. I have NEVER seen a dentist provide this before and it’s so nice!! A real eye for added perks and customer service for all patients walking in through the doors at Mint Dental Works! One thing you will notice is how sleek, clean, and high tech everything is overall. The screens that they use for patient interface and communication, the dental tools and x-ray machines are state of the art, the chairs that you sit in for any procedure that may be taking place are comfortable, etc. I literally can go on and on about the aesthetics and level of detail that went into the layout and design of the space. Nothing stuffy or claustrophobic about this place at all. I LOVE it! But more importantly in this review is Dr. Z and his staff and the level of care he and his team provides. You are truly in the best hands. Dr. Z’s chair side manner is professional, his personality is comforting and calming…especially when dental procedures tend to be high anxiety on most people’s scale of things. He is really patient centric and really takes the time to learn about you, your family, your job, etc. He also remembers too…that’s HUGE. You are not just another person in his chair, you are in a sense apart of the Mint Dental Works family. I truly enjoy going to see Dr. Z and his team and never dread my appointments ever. He and his team are simply excellent in every facet and every way! Dr. Z and his team have the best knowledge and expertise to really help inform you as the patient so that you have the best experience possibly but also create the opportunity to educate you on best practices, preventive care, anything procedure wise, and truly answer all and any type of question you might have. He really takes the time to share with you what is going on with a procedure you might be having, communicating with you throughout the time with detail, making sure your comfortable, and really going above and beyond. He thinks in way as if he were a patient himself and provides great empathy to others that I think a lot of other dentist in the business lack. One thing that really impressed me in his skill set was how he administered the anesthetic for one of several procedures I had done there. I’m not a big fan of needles…I once had cavities filled in and fixed all without any Novocaine/local anesthetic at another dentist office when I was younger. So it’s safe to say that I’m not a fan of needles! Dr. Z was so skilled in this craft that I didn’t even feel it! So impressed with his work and craftsmanship when it comes to dental care. You won’t regret this decision and I suggest Dr. Z and his team to everyone!

Anna K. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Highly, highly recommend Dr. Zarrabi at Mint Dental. Dr Zarrabi seems to really care about his patients and explains everything in detail. It was 20 years since I had any dental work done and had couple of fillings that needed to be redone. While most dentist would try to chop away more of my tooth and make the filling bigger and probably even pressure me into getting a crown, Dr Zarrabi was actually able to save half of my old ceramic filling and just repair the chipped side of the tooth. I was very impressed how patient and thorough he was with his work and it all was painless; even the injection. His practice is very clean, modern and never crowded and most importantly they run on time. The entire staff is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Living in Houston for 15 years, I was never able to recommend my previous dentists but Dr. Zarrabi definitely deserves the praise!

I truly cannot say enough great things about Dr. Zarrabi and his wonderful staff. For about 10 years prior to finding this gem, I had a very antiquated, neighborhood dentist which felt like it was still utilizing technologies from the ’80’s. From the moment I decided to enter the 21st Century and stepped into Dr. Z’s Practice, I have been nothing short of impressed. The office is very clean, warm and very comfortably arranged. It does not feel cold and sterile at all. All processes and technologies are cutting edge and as paperless as possible. Dr. Z and his wife run the Practice together as a family business and as a client you are made to feel like family. Dr. Z has great bedside manner, he always takes as much time as you need to explain whatever procedure he is about to perform and answer any questions you might have. I have found the entire staff to be kind, warm, and if you ever need a last minute appointment, they are great about fitting you in. The only regret that I have about Mint Dental Works is that I didn’t find them sooner!

Jaime D. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I was looking for a quality dentist after getting off my parents’ dental insurance and no longer qualifying as in-network for the dentist I had been going to since childhood.. Needless to say, I had some high hopes! Fortunately, they were met (and even exceeded).. Here the service is great, I never have to wait long (in the lobby or in the chair), and I truly appreciate that the dentist himself is the one who cleans my teeth (at my last place it was nearly always a dental hygienist). I’ve officially found my new DDS! 🙂

Erin M. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I LOVED my experience at Mint Dental Works. From the second I walked into the door I was greeted with friendly faces. The hygienist was incredibly meticulous and spent so much time educating me. After she was done, I spent so much time discussing dental care with Dr. Zarrabi. He is honest, patient, and well educated. He never rushed me or laughed at my silly questions. He wanted to make sure I was comfortable the entire time, and I could tell he enjoys teaching, and enjoys taking time to talk to his patients. This was a great experience for me. As a nurse, I think that often times other healthcare professionals for to take the time to explain things, but not here! I learned so so much and I am so thankful. Look no further! I am one happy patient!

I’m serious when I say I’m actually looking forward to going back to the dentist.

I cannot recommend Dr. Zarrabi and his staff enough for dental care! I had previously moved from another local dental practice that touts itself as “modern and cutting edge” when in reality, there was nothing different from most dentists I’ve gone to my whole life. Mint is leaps and bounds better – like many others have noted, they’re incredibly patient and will explain every process and answer any question you may have. I learned more in my initial consultation about some of the reoccurring issues I had compared to the multiple years I had been with any other dentist. Wait time is minimal, parking is free, and everyone on staff is super friendly.

Had my first visit here earlier this summer after moving from Austin & it has been one of the best dental experience I’ve had in years! The whole staff is always welcoming and Dr. Zarrabi is really personable and great with people. I’m incredibly fortunate to have gotten so lucky in finding a new dentist here in Houston. I highly recommend using Mint Dental! Not to mention it’s a local practice which is a huge plus.

I really enjoyed Mint dental works. I have lapsed in regular dental cleanings/check up in the past few years, only prioritizing visits when I’m in down and working normal weeks. Although I hadn’t been in awhile, the professionals at Mint were cheerful, calming, and helpful. Dr. Zarrabi was professional and direct when painting a picture of my mouth, helpful to suggest other specialists and remind me of the importance in each step of dental care. The only warning I’d give it to those with sensitive mouths – the hygienist assigned to me (Ami) was rather rough and aggressive when “measuring” and cleaning my gums. The process seemed laborious and extraneous, but maybe my knowledge of dental cleanings has fallen behind the times

This place was awesome! The office itself is very clean and relaxing. The staff was amazing and Dr Zarrabi was very professional. He took the time to explain all the x-rays and photos of my teeth. Then did a very thorough cleaning, he found that he missed a spot when polishing my teeth and stopped to clean better. I think it’s great that the dentist did the cleaning himself, most places have the hygienist do the cleaning. My new patient exam and cleaning also came with free teeth whitening!! And they gave me a goody bag with all the essentials (toothbrush, paste, floss, mouthwash). I had a cavity so I was given a pricing sheet to let me know what my insurance would cover and what I would pay out of pocket. It’s nice to not be blind-sided when checking out. Booking appointments online is always a great option! I would highly highly highly recommend for anyone to go to Mint Dental Works. They will take care of you and your teeth!!

As many already said, this is a top notch office with impeccable service. Dr. Zarrabi is as comprehensive about your dental health as they possibly get. I am starting to feel that I have been getting ripped off by other dentists all these years as I have never received such good care as at Dr. Zarrabi’s practice. What sets him apart is that he takes the time to sit down with you, get to know you and your habits and spend as much time as needed to determine all the issues and explain the situation. Not to forget, his assistants seem to be very knowledgeable and courteous. Also nice that he is a fellow New Yorker! Overall, its not easy to get a consistent 5 star rating on Yelp, Mint Dental Works has the right ingredients to keep it up. Thanks!

I hate going to the dentist. But I truly enjoyed my experience with Dr. Zarrabi and his staff. Prior to my appointment, I hadn’t had a cleaning in almost 2 years because I truly dislike everything involved with a dental office. Dr. Zarrabi always checked in on me during my cleaning to make sure I was doing okay. He thoroughly explained everything that was going on with my teeth. He truly eased my concerns and surprisingly, after not getting my teeth cleaned in 2 years…it was painless and I might just get them cleaned again next year. I will be back to visit Dr. Zarrabi in two weeks, because I have a few cavities. Unlike Dentist’s I have gone to in the past, I feel like he only does what’s necessary for the patient and isn’t trying to run some kind of scam to make more money. I appreciate this office for easing my dental anxiety!

After every visit I’m confident I received first class service. The entire office is very well put together its nice and neat, overall its a great group of people, very welcoming atmosphere. Definitely my dentist for life.

Easily the best dentist I’ve ever been to! Which is saying something, I’ve moved around a lot in the past few years. It was very easy to make an appointment with the administrative staff (who is very polite, easy to get a hold of by phone or email, and even offered me a drink when I arrived). The entire office is also very welcoming and clean. Dr. Zarrabi not only took the time to get to know me a little, but actually walked me through what is going on with my x-rays (bone, teeth, and gum health, etc). In addition, he suggested improvements I could make in the way I take care of my teeth day-to-day and also explained WHY I would be making those improvements (which is HUGE). Additionally, he took the time to answer all my questions in a way that I would understand, and was fully interested in making sure I didn’t have any more questions or concerns.

My best dental experience was at Mint Dental with Dr. Zarrabi! First, the waiting room is very clean and chic looking. The office building Mint is located in is very dark and gloomy, but when you open the door to Mint, it is like you’re in a completely different place because the decor is light and welcoming. It is obvious that Dr. Zarrabi has the patients comfort in mind because he asked me many times if I was okay. He also spends a good amount of time thoroughly explaining the examination/ treatment process he is going to do and afterwards he explains what he saw and why it is important to take action on it. He is very knowledgable and his explanations made me feel much more motivated to take action at home (i.e. start flossing more regularly and KEEP flossing rather than just stopping a week after I saw the dentist.). I definitely had a great experience and recommend Dr. Zarrabi highly!
