Don't mention it means You're welcome and it's the phrase that fits into the context here.

Hi!
I normally prefer using the expression" Oh! no need to mention it" instead of saying " Don't mention it"
Am I right in using that expression? If yes, which expression is more favorable to the listener?
I highly appreciate your elaboration on that...best regards

'Don't mention it' (= you're welcome) is a fixed phrase, so it is not acceptable to modify it.

A group of words that are always used together as written; they do not take alternative words, declensions, etc.
