Where did the name Minali Dental come from?  

  My name is mina and my son, husband, and father and grandfather all are named Ali. So I merged the two names and we got Minali! I feel like the name emphasizes our roots and that’s why we have a big tree in the lobby…if it weren’t for our roots we wouldn’t have gotten to where we are today!
