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!
