About

After leaving England, I completed my undergraduate and doctor of dental surgery degrees at the University of Toronto, graduating with Honours in 2004. I have since gone on to complete numerous continuing education programs, including the prestigious Gordon Christensen mentorship program, with particular focus on implant and cosmetic dentistry.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I believe that the process of dentistry should be a positive one, which includes a knowledgeable dentist and patient; and so discussion of treatment plans and patient understanding is at the forefront of my goals.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Dental Implants Veneers Pediatrics

What are you proud of in your practice?

"We have come a long way in dentistry, we are able to achieve results never imagined, in a gentle and caring manner"

    Had a great experience, despite not going to the dentist in many years, they were non judging and kind. The hygienist was as gentle as they could be and very sweet. They explained things thoroughly. Glad to have found a Dental team who is in my neighborhood I can trust and will continue seeing them.

    All my dental experiences have been scaring, so I was really anxious about going to a dentist even though I needed to. But my experience was great and I was handled with care.

    Right from when you walk in the door the whole experience is calm, inviting and family friendly. As someone who is not a fan of dental work and has not been in a long time this was very important to me. The staff were superb from start to finish, procedure were performed efficiently and professionally with constant attention to patient comfort. I not only recommend Mint Dentistry to friend but will take my whole family there.

    I had a great experience at Mint Dentistry. Everyone was very friendly from the moment I walked in the door. Both Dr. Little and the dental assistant were thorough and careful and explained what was happening every step of the way. Definitely makes a trip to the dentist less stressful!

    Dr. Little was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and punctual. She made sure I knew what was happening at all times, and her nurse was wonderfully accommodating and patient with me as well. I have never had such a positive experience with a dentist before, and I would recommend Dr. Little warmly to anyone who suffers from fear of dentists!

    Dr. Melanie and her staff are great. The office is clean, they have Netflix and it’s overall a welcoming atmosphere (which is saying something if you don’t enjoy going to the dentist). They take the time to explain everything they are doing and are very accommodating.

    To say I was hesitant to revisit the dentist is an understatement after the botched wisdom tooth removal from a previous dentist. This recent experience with Mint dentistry more than makes up for it. They were transparent with me from the start, they offered advise and helped me schedule future appointments with no sense of urgency. I plan on returning soon.

The dentist explained what she was doing in detail, which I really liked. Very personable and friendly staff, which is important when you’re getting your teeth done, in my opinion!

    Everyone from the front desk to Dr. Little was extremely friendly and patient. All three people took the time to explain what was going on with my teeth and what they were doing. I also found out I've been using my electric toothbrush wrong for years, my teeth are feeling fantastic. My insurance reimbursement was taken care of for me while I was in my appointment, they even contacted my previous dentist in the states to get my previous X-Rays. The office was absolutely beautiful too! Though I didn't use it, all of their rooms have Netflix hooked up to the TV if you want to watch it.

    As a person who really struggles with dentist-related anxiety it’s hard just even stepping into the office. Everyone here was very kind, respectful, and took the time to explain how and why things were being done. Dr. Little was very compassionate and took the time to discuss next steps, without keeping me there a second longer than I had to be. It was a really nice experience.

    Although I am a person who hates visiting dental office, all of the staffs were very kind and friendly. Especially Dr. Melanie Little was very friendly, explaining every detail of the treatment. She was very sensitive to my reaction and did her best to helped me, so I feel the pain as little as possible.- I really appreciate how gentle and friendly she and her assistant were.

  • The most relaxing experience I've ever had at a dental clinic.
    Reviewed on December 20th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    Full disclosure: I have not been to the dentist in years. Because of this I felt some anxiety leading into my appointment at Mint, but that soon subsided once I got to the office. It's a beautiful space that is extremely patient friendly. All of the staff that I encountered were genuinely friendly, helpful and kind. Dr. Starkman took the time to explain everything she was doing, and went over all my x-rays very thoroughly with me. Leanne, the dental hygienist, was so gentle. I've never had such a pleasant teeth cleaning. Overall fantastic experience so far.
