Mint Dental Works was founded in 2003 when Dr. McMillan took over the practice of a much beloved retiring dentist, Dr. Hinds.
We loved the history and quirkiness of our original space and the patients were fantastic, but the office’s most high-tech piece of equipment was an electric typewriter! The building’s diminutive 900 s.f. size could not support the practice’s continued growth nor accommodate the technology we believed was imperative to providing patients with exceptional care. In 2007, we moved Mint Dental Works to our current location. We’d like to think our new home, which is chock-full of salvaged and vintage materials, in some way pays homage to those purveyors of fine dentistry that paved the way for Mint to serve the community of Portland for nearly 100 years.
My first visit to Mint Dental Works today was extremely positive, friendly and unlike previous dental visits at other practices. Dr. Jason McMillan and his team were welcoming, professional, down to earth, thoughtful and engaging. From registration to x-rays and the examination, I felt comfortable – a first for me – and my normal fears dissipated. This was due to the high level of customer service and care taken by everyone who greeted me. Plus the surroundings are warm, relaxed and beautiful. I'm delighted Mint Dental Works was recommended to me. Helen L, 01/23/17 (Published on RateABiz)View More Testimonials
It feels so good to leave the dentist with clean teeth. Also, they have nice gear (computerized x-ray cameras are great), hygienists seem experienced, and are generally skilled, fast, gentle, and focused. My daughter (age 6) actually gets excited when she has an appointment coming up – I don't know if it's the TV, the sweet attention she gets from the staff, or the trinkets they let her pick out at the end. Who am I kidding, it's probably all of the above. The team is really friendly, and they seem to have a solid, effective workflow going. I generally leave Mint feeling like I got really focused attention. The doctors seem really experienced, and genuinely happy to help. I'm happy to learn they are onboarding a woman dentist now, too. Thanks, Mint, and keep up the good work! Gabe B, 7/3/2017 (Published on RateABiz)View More Testimonials
You take good care of my teeth. I trust you. I love the work Dr McMillan did on my front teeth to make them look so lovely and yet natural. I believe that is called cosmetic dentistry. I have recommended you – no second thoughts on that!! Roberta B., 05/18/17 (Published on RateABiz)View More Testimonials
If you're afraid of the dentist or just plain don't like going – go to Mint. They are all so friendly, professional, helpful, and go out of their way to be of service to you. From massage chairs to neck pillows to being able to watch your favorite show on Netflix while getting a cavity filled – they provide it all. Thanks, Mint, for ending my ten year long fear of dentists and making my teeth look and feel better than they ever have. Going to the dentist has never been so enjoyable.

To be honest, my wife convinced me to come to Mint. I thought it looked a little fancy for my taste at first, but now I admit that I am sold. I've been there for basic cleaning, some cavity filling, nothing too crazy, happily. Everyone in the organization is very friendly, professional, proactive, and thorough. I recognize the same faces every time. I can tell it’s a pretty well managed practice. Prices seem fair, 5% discount to pay cash or check. The Dentists are professional, and still genuine and relatable. Everything is clean and updated, including the chair side manner. For basic cleaning, you get the option of a hot neck pillow, and/or massaging chair. Why wouldn't I? For anything more in depth than cleaning, lay back and watch Netflix on the ceiling. Going to the Dentist is still probably not going to be your favorite thing to do, but I've never been to a better Dentist than Mint, and don't plan on going anywhere else anytime soon.
