Claudia was welcoming and professional. Dr Zarrabi was patient and detailed, taking appropriate time to discuss my dental health. The cleaning was done by Cho. She was very thorough and professional as well. I highly recommend. .

I had not been to the dentist in over 4 years due to some major life changes. I knew I had some cavities and desperately needed a cleaning. I came in prepared to get a bit of a lecture for beingso lax in my dental maintenance, but to my delight Dr. Zarrabi and his staff were kind and understanding. Dr. Zarrabi took time to explain in great detail everything he was doing before and as the work was done. I have been back twice to have cavities filled or replaced and a chipped tooth repaired. I will definitely be returning to Dr. Zarrabi for all of my dental needs and will happily refer him to friends and family in the future!!

Dr. Zarrabi and his staff were an absolute pleasure. All of his staff is well educated, well mannered, and go into a lot of detail. The Xrays & Photos were extremely helpful to learn and understand more about dental hygiene andmy current conditions. Dr. Zarrabi is extremely thorough as he walked me through the xrays and photos of each tooth to explain the current condition and make further recommendations. I'd HIGHLY recommend Dr. Zarrabi and the staff. Thank you for such a pleasant visit!!

I have lived in many cities and been to many dentists, and the exam with Dr Zarrabi was the best ever! He took the time to explain what was going on with each of my teeth, showed me pictures, and then his hygenist gave me a great cleaning.

I must say he is very knowledgeable and really cared for his patient. He evaluated my case by looking into the current status of each of my tooth and had an x-ray done prior to deep cleaning. The pricing information wasexplained too by his colleague. He is supported by a group of very attentive team.

This was my 3rd visit to Dr. Zarrabi's office and every visit has been a great experience. Definitely don't like going to the dentist in general, but the place is clean, all staff are friendly, and the appointments run on-time. Cleaningsand fillings are done professionally with the least amount of discomfort possible.

I've been to countless dentists in my life and I have never been to one as detail-oriented and advanced as Dr. Zarrabi's team. Ami and Claudia were very friendly and mindful of how I felt the entire time. Ami was ridiculouslyattentive and passionate about her craft. She explained everything in detail and it felt like my teeth were going through the most thorough clean ever. Dr. Zarrabi was gentle, kind, and explained everything in detail as well. I am absolutely thrilled to have Dr. Zarrabi as my dentist going forward!

Dr. Zarrabi is the best dentist that I have ever used. He explains options well and listens to my needs. Today, I need a tooth fixed prior to going on vacation. He didn't hesitate to make it happen. Afterwards, he helpedme understand my options for longer term care of the tooth. I highly recommend him!

Initially walking into the office, I was impressed by the simple and clean decor as well as the variety of refreshments that were offered for each patient. It was easy to book an appointment online and there was no wait whenI arrived. The person at the front desk was very friendly and had everything organized to make the appointment go smoothly. I was a new patient, so I had to take all of my x-rays and pictures which took a while but was expected. Dr. Zarrabi was very informative, showed me what was going in with my affected teeth and gave his suggestions. I did not feel like he was trying to sell me on any extras but was very honest with his recommendations for my dental care. The ease of making the appointment and my pleasant experience will definitely have me coming back and referring my friends!

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. andgood 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 Dental Works 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.

Amir was very a good listener and did an excellent job educating me on what he saw with my teeth/gums. The cleaning was as painless and comfortable as a teeth cleaning can possibly be. The team was genuinely concerned with meas a patient and were very thorough. I doubt anyone looks forward to a dentist appointment, but this is as good as it gets. The office was very clean and the staff was very friendly.

The office staff was very friendly, from my first walk up to the desk. Everyone was professional, letting me know what they were doing and why. I've never had a dentist who took the time to make sure I understood, andeducated for preventative measures. The dentist actually did the cleaning, educating throughout. I never felt like anything was rushed for a next appointment. It took much longer than usual, but due to him being thorough. I would recommend!

Dr. Zarrabi was very professional during my first office visit. He was more thorough in his explanation of the plan of care and issues identified than any other doctor I have ever seen in the past.

I've been to Dr Z before. He and his staff are TOP NOTCH! And, he uses the latest technology (it's really quite impressive), his office is beautiful but what's most memorable...and what keeps me coming back... is that he and hisstaff are exceptionally kind, sensitive to any discomfort the patient may be feeling (always checking in to see if you are okay) and they remember the most minute detail between visits!

Mint Dental Works is the best experience that I've ever had at a dentist's office. His office is clean, modern and never crowded. I've been to Mint Dental works four times recently and every visit has been right on time. I'venever waited past my scheduled time (once I was brought back early!). Amir seems to really care about his patient's. He goes above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable. Every time that I've asked a question about what is being done he takes his time to thoroughly explain the situation in detail. Lastly, his entire staff is very nice. Communications with the office are super easy. They always answer the phone right away, no hitting keys on the phone in an automated system or waiting. His assistant is very nice and always in a good mood.
