Biography

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"

    I was really nervous as it has been about 5 years since my last dental visit. I got a cleaning done and it was a breeze, the hygenist was great, made me feel very comfortable. The office was very modern and nice looking which was also a bonus.

    Dr. Little was great at listening to my concerns that stemmed from a bad experience with my previous dentist. She made sure I understood and was on board with her proposed solution as well as the reasoning behind it before she got started. A very good dentist for anxious patients.

    My experience was as smooth as you would want it to be. Great communication in advance, very friendly staff at the front desk. The appointment itself was excellent, very good service. Small little pain point was filling out the "first visit" form in pdf prior to my visit. Would suggest to fill it out at the front desk.

  • My son and I had a great time going to see Dr Little!
    Reviewed on June 7th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    From the moment we walked in, I felt welcomed and taken care of. The way she communicated with my young son was clear, gentle and supportive. As his parent, she took great care to consult with me and inform me about his dental needs. I absolutely recommend Dr Little and the other providers that I met at Mint Dentistry. My son was inspired to clean his teeth perfectly that evening before bed. I think he'll will look forward to his next appointment.

    Reviewed on May 28th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    When you first enter, you will notice that the space is bright and very wheelchair accessible. The receptionist emailed me paperwork to fill in right after I booked the appointment so there was no need to arrive early and scramble to find medical information on the spot, which is a huge plus for those who have many medical issues. The visit itself was extremely thorough. I have never met a dentist who also looked at the bigger picture of how the jaw and facial soft tissues played a role in dental health. Dr. Little explained preventative care and gave me options for future procedures. All in all, I was very impressed.

    I had a set of X-rays, a consultation and a partial cleaning. The staff were lovely, helpful and friendly and I'm booked in again to finish my cleaning shortly. The waiting room was inviting, they offered me a refreshment as I filled in my forms and the dentist chair massaged my back as I had a teeth cleaning. I was also able to watch Netflix which distracted me and calmed my nerves.

  • Delightful Dentist
    Reviewed on April 1st, 2017  •  Verified patient
    This by far has been the loveliest dental appointment I have ever had. Dr. Little was very friendly, kind and knowledgeable. She took the time to carefully explain all aspects of the examination. I've seen a few different dentists and have found it difficult to find one that I can trust and feel fully comfortable with - until this appointment with Dr. Little. She was detail oriented and thorough - both important qualities in a dentist. I have already referred my partner to book an appointment with her and I highly recommend her!

    I thought i had chipped a tooth, but Dr Melanie Little determined right away that i had actually simply chipped a piece of the adhesive material attaching my metal bar onto my bottom teeth. When i asked to remove the bar she discussed the benefits of keeping the bar in. I now understand the benefits of keeping it in.

    Reviewed on January 17th, 2017
    Seamless process for a full inspection, explained what's happening with my teeth clearly, how gum pockets develop, how to manage gingivitis and other future considerations. There was minimal discomfort, light humor, and I'm glad opencare marketing reminded me to get it done and provide ratings for local dentists.

    Reviewed on January 10th, 2017
    She is the first dentist I have been to in Toronto (I'm originally from London). I was expecting it to be the same but more expensive. Dr. Little was so friendly and relaxed and her attitude made the experience so easy. She didn't try to tell me I needed something in fact she told me my teeth were perfect! She showed me pictures of my teeth and did a full assessment of my muscles and jaw. She is a great choice for a dentist!

    Dr. Little was very helpful. It was an emergency visit for me as I had a painful tooth and things got resolved very quickly. The doctor was quick to find what was wrong and to explain to me what my options were and on that day it self, they were able to send me to a specialist and had my tooth extracted. The specialist they sent me to was an amazing dental surgeon as well. Hopefully none of my teeth have anymore problems but if they do, I would go to Dr. Little and Mint Dentistry again.
