Verified Patient Reviews
My hygienist, Mimi, was the best I've ever seen. She let me know exactly what was going to happen next, she was very careful and sweet, and best of all, she was hilarious! When was the last time you laughed during a dentist appointment? I was also very fortunate to have an early morning appointment, and so they were able to squeeze in a cleaning for me on my first visit. Highly recommend, and will be returning for my biannual cleaning!
This was my third time at the office. And I am still pleased with the excellent customer services & how professional the staff is. I will continue being a patient at Mint Dental!
The dentist himself was nice. New patients should know that they can't get a cleaning until they get a 'new patient' exam. The x-rays they did on my teeth were extremely painfully. I had to hold a heavy metal apparatus in my mouth- not a little x-ray card, an entire metal contraption that hung out of my mouth. I wasn't holding it between my teeth; it was frequently pressed against the roof of my mouth or the side of my gums, wearing the skin away. I don't know how many x-rays they took- 15? It seemed like a never-ending process. Obviously, I've had dental x-rays done many times. I've never had such an unpleasant experience. I was not eager to return, but when I found out the office's limited hours, I realized I actually would not be able to return. The day (or days?) when they stay open late were booked months in advance. Unfortunately, I can't take off time from work to go to the dentist.
I was told when I first made this appointment, my first with Dr. Bradshaw, that it would include xrays and an exam, and would thus take longer. I was not informed that it wouldn't involve a cleaning and that I would need to make the cleaning appointment after my initial exam. To make matters worse, their schedule is so full that it is over two months until a cleaning appointment is available. I'll stick with the practice, as the experience with Dr. Bradshaw was otherwise pleasant. However, I had intentionally scheduled this appointment at a time when my work calendar is more flexible. October, when my cleaning is scheduled is a highly inopportune time. I'd really rather not wait any longer, but I wish I'd had more complete information before I committed.
Finding a great dentist is a tough task. I'm glad I noticed Mint Dental Spa while standing at a bus stop. I was so intrigued by the outside decor that I Googled the business. After reading the profiles of the doctors and a few patient reviews, I immediately booked an appointment. The entire staff is amazing! I have never had a consistent dental coverage; as a result, I have a lot of dental problems. Dr. Bradshaw made me feel very comfortable and relaxed the moment I met him. He developed a treatment plan within my means, that I intend to follow.
It was wonderful visit. I have never had any doctor put me at such ease about a uneasy situation.
I was impressed with the facility, the staff, and Dr. Bradshaw
I am the poster child for dentist anxiety. Everyone I spoke with was exceptionally kind and understanding. Dr. Bradshaw was extremely thorough and answered all my questions with patience. It's too bad that my condition was so far gone that he had to recommend me to an oral surgeon. I will be back to see him and take some responsibility for my dental health. Great great place and that means a lot coming from me.
He does great work with an eye for aesthetics. I chipped one of my front teeth and he artfully sculpted the filling so that it is virtually imperceptible. I'm smiling again.
Very nice and professional.
Dr. Bradshaw is patient and kind and does an excellent job making sure the patient is comfortable and well taken care of. I appreciate it!
Dr. Bradshaw was very nice, friendly, and thorough. He explained everything as he was doing it and made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend him to friends and family.
He's a very nice Doctor!
Very professional and polite.
Very efficient and comfortable, the whole office is very friendly!
Dr. Bradshaw's practice provides excellent dentistry and customer service. I skipped dentist's visits for a year because my plan didn't include him. Highly recommended.
The office experience from the time you walk in, seen by the Doctor and exit the office is outstanding. Dr. Bradshaw and his staff are a cut above the rest. When you leave the office you can't help but tell others of the services they provided and suggest that they, too, call on Mint Dental for their dentistry needs. Nobody does it better!
Excellent professional. No wait time. Clear post-operative instructions. No pain and absolutely clear information about the procedure.
Dr. Bradshaw is an excellent dentist.
He is soooo gentle with your teeth! Highly recommend.
Dr. Bradshaw is an excellent Dentist and the administrative staff are professional and very friendly. But I will not be returning to this practice. The business side is very suspicious. I've never had a dentist practice request the pre-payment of the patients portion of a procedure weeks in advance as a condition to scheduling an appointment for the procedure. That said, the dental professionals at this practice are excellent. There is just something unsettling about their business practices.
Needed emergency care. I was seen by the doctor very quickly and treated soon thereafter. The entire staff at Mint Dental was superb. What a great place!
Dr. Bradshaw explained my treatment clearly and concisely. His expertise is excellent.
This doctor is excellent professional and person. Explain step by step what he is doing and making in your mouth. I can feel so comfortable with him. I recommend him as a dentist and as a surgery Doctor.
It's was vey good. I was so very nervous about going to a dentist. However he answered all my questions and took his time with me. I very much appreciated that.
I just feel that he was more of a salesman than a dentist. I'm sure dentist practices change, but there was a lot of retail theatre. I'm not going back.
Very modern and clean facility. Pleasant atmosphere great music selection. Highly professional staff
Great. The best!!!
I went there. They said they didn't take my insurance despite what it says on Zocdoc. I left. They emailed me back later to say that they did in fact take it but made a mistake.
Fine work by the doctor, exemplary management of the office, kind and helpful staff, clean and up-to-date facilities -- what's not to like?
Dr. Bradshaw was amazing! Root canal was painless, everything ran smoothly.
It was great! Dr. Bradshaw made my experience comfortable and enjoyable all while answering any questions I had.
Great visit. I really enjoyed the office's punctuality. The office is beautiful and very focused on technology. It's very convenient with lots of off street parking (I suggest afternoons - and not Thursdays for the best parking options). I thought the Dr. Calle was amazing!!!! He was super professional and made me feel at home. They even play a Pandora station of your choice to make you feel more comfortable. Dr. Calle explained several options that I have and wasn't pushy at all. I really enjoyed the experience. Would recommend to anyone! Very satisfied.
The verification of my insurance was the hold up. Office staff was great and patient with my my insurance company,
Beautiful office space and very courteous staff!
Dr. Bradshaw was very professional in the handling of the operation, during the procedure he continually made sure i was comfortable.
Wonderful dentist, very kind and thorough. I really appreciated that he walked me through what he was doing and why. The office is sparkling and very comfortable. Staff is very friendly.
By far the best visit that I have ever had for a dental procedure! Not only is Dr. Bradshaw a skilled dentist, he also made me feel comfortable and relaxed ! I would definitely recommend Dr. Bradshaw and Mint Dental DC to anyone is need of dental team.
Dr. Bradshaw is an up to date modern dentist with state of the art equipment. Using a 3-D imaging computer that sends information to an automated crown making machine on premises, Dr. B completed my two crowns on the same day that he did the prep work on the teeth. The crowns look like my natural teeth and they were a perfect fit with no adjustments needed.
I had a cavity filled and had to have it re-filled within a year.
Clean, professional, and thorough. Great experience!
I had my first visit today with Mint Dentistry and everyone I encountered was very pleasant and welcoming. I had my appointment with Dr. Bradshaw and he was extremely helpful with any questions I had and was more than willing to explain them.
My visit with Dr. Bradshaw was great. Very professional. The staff was excellent and kind. I'm glad I was referred. The office is nice, modern, and very clean. Excellent Dentist and staff. ??
Very professional and courteous. Wonderful staff. Facility is very clean and high tech.
Beautiful office, friendly staff, and a knowledgeable, personable dentist. Couldn't ask for anything more!
Despite an initial scheduling snafu, I had an amazing experience with Dr. Bradshaw and his team. Due to some changes in my schedule I was about an hour early to my appointment, I was fine with waiting but they saw me 30 minutes ahead of schedule. The office manager and dental assistant set a great first impression and really put me at ease by making sure I was comfortable. They even asked what Pandora station I would like to listen to during my dental evaluation :-) I was also impressed by the spacious and well-lit treatment rooms that were flooded with natural sunlight. One whole wall was windows--a welcome departure from the typical fluorescent light utility closet feel of most dentist offices. It was a little cold due to all the windows however, so I would suggest taking a light sweater if you tend to get chilly. Dr. Bradshaw took his time to introduce himself and get a thorough understanding of the reason for my visit. After the evaluation he put together a comprehensive treatment plan using state of the art equipment and some great imaging materials. Then the office manager Elliant (who is great) came into the treatment room and discussed cost, financing options, and how the procedures I needed fit in with my insurance coverage. I have never experienced this level of friendly service at any dentist before. I have now embarked on a series of corrective and preventative maintenance treatments with Mint Dental and look forward to working with their team.
Super nice office staff and dentist!
Very thorough. Didn't push an agenda, or products, but gave advice and education and allowed me ample time to make an informed decision. Great team and gentle too. I have never had a dentist apply ointment to my lips to help them from drying out as he was working on two necessary crowns. Attention to detail has left a great impression.
Pleasantly professional and he did a great job with my fillings and correcting a chip I previously had done somewhere else.
Very Thorough and educational
Bradshaw as a doctor was fine, however Mint Dental exploits patients by overcharging. After seeking a second opinion on a mouth guard that seemed overpriced, I realized that regular procedures were TWICE the going rate as other dentists (fillings, cleanings, etc.).
It was an unenjoyable experience. He was extremely rough while doing the exam, and I even had a sore in my mouth the next day from where he dug too deeply.
Great for cleanings. Also had two crowns put in - one of them came loose unfortunately but Dr. Bradshaw was good at fitting me in immediately and re-cementing the crown so that it stayed. Everyone in the office (which is very new) is really nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend. They also have some Saturday appointments which is nice when its hard to take time off work.
She was excellent! :)
Very confident and professional attitude. Dr. Bradshaw's manner made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I hate dentists and each visit is a quest for me, but it is all different with this doctor.
I've been to him twice and so far he is a wonderful dentist. I am very confident in his work. He is very attentive and willing to answer any questions you may have.
I've had two wonderful visits with Mint Dental. Dr. Bradshaw is incredibly knowledgeable and is able to walk you through everything he is doing. On my first visit I was prescribed a mouthwash for gingivitis which stained my teeth, but upon hearing about the discoloration Dr. Bradshaw was more than happy to polish the stains away. Highly recommended! Plus it feels more like a spa than a dentist office!
My appointment with Dr. Bradshaw was incredible. I am not fond of dentists and he made the appointment very bearable. He was very polite.
I think that Dr. Bradshaw most definitely is a very thoughtful person. Not only did he make sure through the entire appointment that I was comfortable, but he also was extremely polite and caring.
This was my third visit and I am very very happy that I have finally found a fantastic dentist. His staff is friendly, my insurance is accepted and its a brand new office. Very technology forward, which I really liked. He is gentle and lets you know details of what he is doing or about to do. You can tell Dr. Bradshaw loves what he does, I would highly recommend him to everyone.
Excellent dentist. Very nice, clean, modern office, with latest technology. Dr. Bradshaw is very professional, friendly, and patient in explaining his assessment. Hygienist was great too. They even take pictures of the inside of your mouth/teeth so that the Dr. can walk you through what he is seeing. Highly recommended.
Outstanding experience! Excellent care and extremely thorough.
I had been struggling to find a dentist in DC after relocating to the area and had a few false starts before going to Dr. Bradshaw. His staff was extremely courteous and helpful, the office was very clean and nice, and the equipment was all brand new and state-of-the-art. Dr. Bradshaw listened attentively to my concerns and answered all of the questions I had thoughtfully and patiently. Overall, it was a GREAT experience and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good dentist in the DC area! :)
Really professional, occasionally lighthearted, all-around outstanding job on my teeth and customer service. Highly recommended.
This was a wonderful dental experience. The new office is aesthetically pleasing, the equipment is state-of-the-art, and the staff was pleasant and friendly. Dr. Bradshaw was very professional and happy to thoroughly answer all questions. I highly recommend this dental practice.
After 3 visits, I can't believe I didn't write a review for Mint Dentistry sooner! The office is beautiful and the staff are professional, sweet and very funny. Dr. Bradshaw is a great dentist... gentle enough that I was able to take a nap during a root canal! I recommend Dr. Bradshaw's office to anyone who asks me about a dentistry in DC.
He and his assistant Nila (or was it Niya?) were very professional, knowledgeable and patient-oriented. I hadn't been to a dentist in 27 years since I was 9 year-old, and I wasn't exactly expecting a fun trip to the dentist this time. But they actually made it fun to see a dentist!
Dr. Bradshaw and Mint's staff were superb. Being that It has been several years since I've been to an orthodontist, it was assuring to sit in the chair and be able to relax. The exam was very thorough with x-rays and hd photos to show details of each individual tooth. I had some sensitivity and certain areas and they were able to pinpoint the cause of it and offer same day solutions. Also they seem to take everyone's insurance. Stop by if you are in the area.
Very thorough exam and cleaning. Very nice staff and office space.
My visit was at the top of the list! From the moment I walked through the door, everything ran smoothly. I am a new patient and filled out the required paperwork. Shortly after completing that I was introduced to Dr. Bradshaw and began service. His demeanor was great and he patiently explained and described what would happen during this visit. We developed a dental management plan based on my health needs and some cosmetic improvements. I remain thoroughly satisfied with my service and future dental health and hygiene procedures
I've seen Dr. Bradshaw twice now, with appointments one week apart. The first time was for a cleaning. He and his assistant noticed cavities in my molars (I have very deep grooves in my molars and no sealants), and he recommended that I have the ones on the right side of my mouth filled that day and then return in a week to do the other side. The cleaning and right side filling went well. I returned a week later for the left side. In the days following, I've had pain in the left side of my mouth and significantly increased sensitivity to cold. I will be following up with Dr. Bradshaw and his office today about scheduling another appointment to see how to resolve this. Please note that despite this, Dr. Bradshaw has a wonderful demeanor. He is very professional, patient, and thorough, as is his staff. I'm hoping that this will be an easy enough fix. Because I've never had problems with my teeth, I enjoy going to the dentist, and enjoyed my overall experience at Dr. Bradshaw's. I'll follow up this review after my next visit to Dr. Bradshaw's office.
I havent been to the dentist on over 2 years and I was extremely nervous. Needless to say I had a lot of work that needed to be done....I ended up having a root canal and here was my experience.....The environment was very nice almost like going to the spa everyone is WONDERFUL so pleasant and made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Bradshaw was very kind, patient and open about the procedure. Best experience I've had at a dental office and procedure.
It was great and the people there were so friendly and understanding.
What a fantastic dentistry! The receptionists were very patient and worked with me through some insurance difficulties, and Dr. Bradshaw and his assistant were caring and professional while I was in the chair. I will certainly be making Mint my dentistry of choice, and recommending to friends who are looking!
Everything was excellent!
I was initially a bit apprehensive since this was a new practice. But the thing I liked about the Doctor is that he wasn't very pushy at all. He patiently explained my situation and my options.
Excellent and professional and comforting. Staff were kind and patient.
Excellent overall experience. Dr. Bradshaw's new private firm has a great combination of punctuality, friendliness, technology, and expertise. I was extra impressed with how many x-rays were taken, as well as the hi-definition photos of my cavity. With the technology, Bradshaw was able to easily point out the cavity in the photos. Finally, Bradshaw was able to fill the cavity during the same visit, which saved me from having to make another appointment. Will definitely return.
Brand new facilities and a friendly staff. Dr Bradshaw is a nice guy with good bedside manner who definitely knows his stuff.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. I was seen right away (at my appointment time). Dr. Bradshaw explained everything to me and was very clear about what was optional and what was needed.
