Welcome to Mint Mini Dental Implants. | John Coolican DMD, FAGD



Dr. Coolican was born, raised, and lives in the Scranton area. A second generation dentist, his mentor, Dr. Paul Coolican (retired), practiced in the same location in West Scranton for 50 years. His original intention in his studies after Scranton Preparatory School and while at the University Of Scranton included a desire to continue onto medical school. However, after serving in a position at his father’s office and learning the faces and names of many of the lifelong patients, he continued his career in dental school and cherishes the opportunity to serve the residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Dr. Coolican maintains a comprehensive dental practice devoted to excellence in his profession. A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the VA residency program. Dr. Coolican holds status of Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry and a founding member of the International Academy of Mini Dental Implants.

Dr. Coolican has placed thousands of Mini Dental Implants since 2004 and restored hundreds of smiles. He and his staff have recently founded Mint Mini Dental Implants.

    Nicole is a 2007 graduate of Prairie State College with an Associate degree in Applied Science for dental hygiene. She takes pride in her work by attending continuing education seminars and lectures on all the latest research and technology to be able to provide excellent hygiene care for our guests. She is very thorough and gentle when she cleans teeth. This is a rare combination. She can access the health of gums so gently that you hardly even know you are at the dentist. She is our guardian of the gums.

    Her passion for dental hygiene has inspired her to help start a dental clinic on an orphanage in the Dominican Republic and she has also volunteered her services with the team, Mission of Mercy, which offered free dental care to over 1,900 people in two days.

    Outside of work, she is a proud mom and loves spending time with family and friends, enjoys running, biking, ceramics, scrapbooking, and traveling. One of her favorite vacations being a three week trip all throughout Europe.
