Meet The Doctors

Drs. Jamie Ariana and Lauren Avery opened Mint Dental in November of 2010 with the goal of providing high quality dental care in a comfortable setting.

Jamie Ariana, DDS

DrJ1Dr. Ariana is dedicated to providing excellent, high quality dental care. Born in Tulsa, he has lived in several other places including Houston, Iowa City, Chicago, (and even a year in Norway), and has come home to Tulsa where he has been practicing since 2006.

Dr. Ariana graduated valedictorian of his class at the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, and has brought that dedication to learning to his practice of dentistry, continually attending classes to bring the latest advances to his patients.
