Everyone at the office is very friendly and helpful. I hate going to the dentist, but Dr. Short made me feel at ease and explained my treatment plan in a way that answered all my questions and concerns. Highly recommended this practice!!!

Dr. Short is amazing. He's competent, efficient, and experienced. I broke my face and he repaired me teeth to get my smile and bite back to normal. He wouldn't accept anything less than the best I could get, which i am grateful for. The support staff are very friendly and helpful. He also does invisalign or some kind of non-traditional orthodontics. Couldn't be happier with the work I've had done.

— Hi David, thank you for your 5-star review, we really appreciate it! We're going to share it with the whole team.

Kathy the dental hygienist was amazing and kind. She made sure I was doing alright throughout the cleaning and told me what she was going to do before she did it so I wouldn’t be afraid.

— Thank you for the 5-star review, Kaitlin! Your feedback is important to us.

I've been going to Midwest dental in Belvidere seeing Dr Short for over a year now. I am no stranger to the dental chair and have received 4 crowns and a root canal by him in that short amount of time. His "Old School" Approach of simplistic communicationis paired with his sincere desire to improve your dental health is simply top notch, which is truly a well needed breath of fresh air in todays dental industry! Do yourself a favor and experience him and his incredible staff, led by Ariel and Taylor, for yourself. You will be so glad you did.

— Thanks for making us smile, Jeffrey! We appreciate your review.

Our family really misses Dr. Joe. The new Dentist “Dr. Short temper” needs to work on his bed side manners skills. Positive communication goes a long way. Our family has had multiple neg incidents with him. His way in trying to correct it is by telling me to find another dentist. Absolutely love the staff. The rest of the staff is great. We will not be back until they find a dentist that speaks to their pts with RESPECT!!!! Upper management needs to investigate this!!!!!!!

— Hi Yajaira, your feedback is important to us. If you would like to provide any additional information, please reach out to our team directly at belvidere@midwest-dental.com.

Amazing! I don't even know where to begin. The entire staff, and I mean the entire staff at Midwest Dental, are the most amazing, caring, professional individuals you could ever encounter. I personally have had some bad and so so experiences with dentists over my 44 years but Midwest Dental completely blow everyone else out of the water. Absolutely no discomfort with any of my procedures so far and one of them was a crown. He even fixed a discolored tooth from a repair I had done back in my late teens that had discolored to a nasty yellow. 2 other dentists told me I needed thousands of dollars in crowns, he literally polished it up and it looks perfect. THANK YOU!!!

— That is so great to hear. Thank you! It's wonderful to see that you had a positive experience with us.

I’m very pleased with the dental care I have received from Dr. Short and his entire staff!! I started out with cleanings, then I needed two crowns, upper and lower, and had retainers made, upper and lower!!! Taylor was fantastic about scheduling all of the different appointments, and was great about calling when there was a cancellation which allowed me to complete the process sooner!!! All of the technicians were wonderful! They did careful, exact work which helped ensure that everything fit perfectly when it was completed. Dr. Short was kind and considerate when he was doing the necessary drilling etc., and always communicated what he was doing, so I knew what to expect. I really appreciated how well he worked with his staff, and he always treated everyone with respect. I was not able to pay in full for all of services at the first appointment, and they were very understanding as I paid in increments. I would highly recommend Dr. Short at Midwest Dental in Belvidere, IL.

— Thank you for your review. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us.

The dentist was very rude and aggressive on my 2 daughters teeth. First and last time going there. The dentist name was Dr. Short. He basically called me a liar too. Very unprofessional.

Better than any other Rockford dentist. Actually worked with me. Didn't give me one sided opions. Gave me multiple options. Recommend to everyone!!!.

— Hi, Christopher! Thank you so much for taking a few moments to let us know how we are doing. Reading your review reminded us why we do what we do. It was truly a pleasure to serve you.

Erica Montoya

Jul 15, 2023

Such good care! Helena the hygienist is excellent at what she does and explains everything to you both before and as she does it. Dr. Short explained my situation to me in detail. He and Helena make a great care team. They take the most x-rays I have ever had done in a single visit. Clearly they value precision. He picked up on 3 separate issues my former dentist did not. Add to all that the cordial, attentive front desk experience and I am calling this place my new home. If you're in Rockford like I am, don't hesitate to switch dentists - the drive (20 mins) is so worth it. Small office with excellent communication all around. This place is gold.

— Thank you so much for your kind words, Erica. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. We count ourselves lucky for patients like you!

I have been thoroughly terrified of the dentist since I was kid. Dr. Short is incredible at what he does! Thank you for being a true family dentist for the entire family! I highly recommend him for you and your children! If I had him as my childhood dentist, I might not have the fear I do today! Thank you Dr. Short for providing exceptional service!

1st time patient. They were all nice and pleasant, but I made an appt for a cleaning and didn't even get one!! I've been to a slew of dentists in my life due to moving and insurance. NEVER not got a cleaning with an initial appt., which is what I requested when I made the appt. Waste of my time.

Claudia McKinney

Jan 09, 2023

I have been going to Midwest Dental since November 2022. I went in with a golf ball size abscess on the roof of my mouth, it was horribly painful and quite disturbing to look at, Dr. Delfs walked by and I heard her say I can help her. She came in and explained what she would do. I told her I always get dry sockets and my teeth don't come out easy and in pieces. Well she said she has tricks for dry sockets and she did! I'm not saying it wasn't painful because there's no way it wouldn't be but so far she has pulled all my top teeth and we will start on bottom next week. So far no dry sockets. Dr. Delfs is my hero. The first day Arial assisted and made me feel so comfortable. I can't say I look forward to a visit to the dentist but I'm confident that they will take care of me. I love my care team at Midwest dental in Belvidere! I can't wait till I have teeth and can smile for a picture lil

Pamala Gunn

I have had a wonderful experience with Midwest dental. They have helped me with many dental problems and they are very understanding of anxiety problems. I have had a good experience with everyone involved in my care, from the appointments being made to the procedures being done, the care explaining every step of the way I've had. Nothing but a good experience.

Denise Nichols

Nov 02, 2022

I tried to establish as a new patient. I was patient and understanding waiting months for a first visit. They called night before to cancel 2 visits in a row. Then when I failed to see and return a confirmation, for third attempted first visit, they cancelled my visit and refused to understand or compromise. Unprofessional and unempathetic-not a good combination in the healthcare world.

— Hi Denise, we always want our patients to have a positive experience and we're truly sorry that you did not. We appreciate you sharing your helpful feedback as it will help us improve. If you'd like to provide us additional details please contact us directly at belvidere@midwest-dental.com.

Called Midwest dental in an emergency, they politely figured out my situation got me in for an X-ray right away to check out my gums. Even got a same day cleaning by Kathy. Needless too say I was satisfied with the humor of the staff, effeteness, cleanliness and the fact that I felt cared for <3. I will be remembering this amazing dentist experience for the rest of my life, cause.. let’s be honest, we all hate the dentist. Definitely will recommend this place to anyone in the Belvedere area! Personal shout out too Jen for reminding me how even the dentist can be a fun filled environment with sass and humor.

I was terrified of the dentist after a lifetime of negative experiences. Today I went in for x-rays and consult with Dr. Joe. Everyone was professional, polite and confident they could help. Collectively I have a team of dental professionals and a plan to actually make me smile again.

Moved here from St. Louis. I had to find a new dentist. Mom and Dad went to Dr.Joe at Midwest Dental. Unfortunately there insurance changed. So they had to find a dentist covered by there new provider. My 1st and 2nd visit for exam, ex-rays, and cleaning were exceptional. The staff and Dr.Joe were also awesome, very thorough, answering all questions and concerns. Was able to see right away. I would highly recommend...

Nice place but I absolutely won’t go back there because of the horrifying club music they have blaring through the speakers... I couldn’t get out of that place fast enough. Change or get rid of the music altogether & I'll recommend Midwest to people.

— Hello Chachie. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience. On your next visit, we invite you to ask a member of our staff to change the music if it is something you don't enjoy. Thank you and we look forward to improving your experience at our office.

We stopped going to this dentist because the hygienist didn't honor our request for no fluoride (on your kid's teeth). It was bizarre how she snuck it in after we asked for none. When I went to a new dentist, within 6mo-1year of not going to midwest, the new dentist found borderline gingivitis (with some bone loss) and 4 cavities! We had been going to midwest dental for years.

Charles Morrison

Jan 03, 2020

The hygienist was very thorough with the cleaning and yet there wasn't much bleeding (I should really floss more). The front desk person did a great job of explaining my insurance benefits for the porcelain cap I need to replace (my previous dentist, from Rockford, was not good, it stayed on a year and almost a half... She was out of business when I went to get it replaced). The dentist was thorough with his check and examination and also, something I appreciate, humorous. We also discussed travel, another topic I enjoy.

Dr. Joe and his team are wonderful! Kathy the hygienist is so kind. She really makes you feel at ease and is great at explaining everything in a way that makes sense to the patient. I came into my last appointment with my new 2 1/2 month old baby along. All the ladies at the front desk loved on her the whole time so i could get xrays and my cleaning. The baby was sound asleep and so comfortable when I was done; it made me so grateful to have such a wonderful place to go to for my oral care. I highly recommend Midwest Dental in Belvidere!!!

Nicholas Aulbert

Aug 12, 2019

Dr. Joe and his team are amazing. I woke up at 3am with extreme pain in one of my teeth that I'm waiting to have pulled. Dr. Joe responded to the emergency line almost immediately and gave good advice on what to do and why it was happening. Couldn't be more thankful! You guys rock.

Gail Larsen

Jun 23, 2019

The only reason that I will return is because of Kathy the hygienist. I will not see the dentist again. My dealing with the dentist is that I was sitting in the chair, back to the door, when he came in and said hello and shook my hand from behind. No face to face contact at all. He had me lie back, he picked at 4 teeth, said to clean around crowns, and left. He charged $50 for less than 1 minute of contact. He is very unprofessional to his clients.

Nicole Aulbert

Jun 19, 2019

My husband and I have each had our teeth cleaned here twice. We had xrays taken the first time. EXCELLENT customer service. The ladies at the front desk are super kind and helpful! The dental assistant is so friendly - she always makes me feel welcome. The dentist did a great job and was willing to answer any questions we had. We had some issues come up with our insurance and they were willing to help us figure out what to do. Overall a great experience with them. Plus there's free coffee in the waiting room - bonus ;)

It was my first time at this dentist. They made me feel welcomed and cared for . They were supper nice . The dentist came In and told me what he was going to do. I can't wait to come back here in October for my next cleaning.

Peter Stice

Mar 25, 2019

Dr. Joe Karpiak and his office has an exceptional practice and is second to none in customer service. From the moment I walked in, I was treated like family with friendly staff and told me exactly what to expect for my visit. After my cleaning, Dr. Joe came in and clearly explained his diagnosis and future visit expectations in common language, no medical jargon. He also fixed a chip on a tooth in the back of my mouth and I couldnt even tell he did anything! He has a very fine attention to detail and perfection for his patients. I am overall very pleased with my visit and the work this team does!

Brett McPherson

Mar 06, 2019

gave me an exam, recommended me for a "deep cleaning" that was over $1000, of which I would have had to pay $300 out of pocket. When I said no, just give me a regular cleaning, Dr. Joe refused because he had already "diagnosed" me for a deep cleaning. Oh, he had his assistant deliver all this news. What a racket. If you looking for an honest dentist, skip over Midwest Dental.

I needed a new dentist, so I looked at my coverage and saw these guys and looked them up. They have a 5 star rating so I decided to call them. First call didn't get answered, that's ok I understand they were probably busy. I called a while later and the phone call got answered but the person on the other end hung up probably half a second later. I also went online to get an appointment, I got the email saying they got it. I never received a call. That being said I won't be trying to go here any more. I called a different office and they picked up the call first ring, and I was able to get an appointment no hassle. Midwest dental was closer to both work and home. Awful customer service.

— Hello Steven. Thank you for providing your feedback. We are trying to get in contact with you and would like to help. Please call our office at 815-547-5151.

Everyone at the office is very friendly and helpful. I hate going to the dentist, but Dr. Short made me feel at ease and explained my treatment plan in a way that answered all my questions and concerns. Highly recommended this practice!!!

David Beatty

Jun 18, 2024

Dr. Short is amazing. He's competent, efficient, and experienced. I broke my face and he repaired me teeth to get my smile and bite back to normal. He wouldn't accept anything less than the best I could get, which i am grateful for. The support staff are very friendly and helpful. He also does invisalign or some kind of non-traditional orthodontics. Couldn't be happier with the work I've had done.

— Hi David, thank you for your 5-star review, we really appreciate it! We're going to share it with the whole team.

Kathy the dental hygienist was amazing and kind. She made sure I was doing alright throughout the cleaning and told me what she was going to do before she did it so I wouldn’t be afraid.

— Thank you for the 5-star review, Kaitlin! Your feedback is important to us.

Jeffrey Jordan

Jun 11, 2024

I've been going to Midwest dental in Belvidere seeing Dr Short for over a year now. I am no stranger to the dental chair and have received 4 crowns and a root canal by him in that short amount of time. His "Old School" Approach of simplistic communicationis paired with his sincere desire to improve your dental health is simply top notch, which is truly a well needed breath of fresh air in todays dental industry! Do yourself a favor and experience him and his incredible staff, led by Ariel and Taylor, for yourself. You will be so glad you did.

— Thanks for making us smile, Jeffrey! We appreciate your review.

Yajaira Aguirre

May 12, 2024

Our family really misses Dr. Joe. The new Dentist “Dr. Short temper” needs to work on his bed side manners skills. Positive communication goes a long way. Our family has had multiple neg incidents with him. His way in trying to correct it is by telling me to find another dentist. Absolutely love the staff. The rest of the staff is great. We will not be back until they find a dentist that speaks to their pts with RESPECT!!!! Upper management needs to investigate this!!!!!!!

— Hi Yajaira, your feedback is important to us. If you would like to provide any additional information, please reach out to our team directly at belvidere@midwest-dental.com.

Rob Arata

Mar 25, 2024

Amazing! I don't even know where to begin. The entire staff, and I mean the entire staff at Midwest Dental, are the most amazing, caring, professional individuals you could ever encounter. I personally have had some bad and so so experiences with dentists over my 44 years but Midwest Dental completely blow everyone else out of the water. Absolutely no discomfort with any of my procedures so far and one of them was a crown. He even fixed a discolored tooth from a repair I had done back in my late teens that had discolored to a nasty yellow. 2 other dentists told me I needed thousands of dollars in crowns, he literally polished it up and it looks perfect. THANK YOU!!!

— That is so great to hear. Thank you! It's wonderful to see that you had a positive experience with us.

Caroline Marrs

Dec 22, 2023

I’m very pleased with the dental care I have received from Dr. Short and his entire staff!! I started out with cleanings, then I needed two crowns, upper and lower, and had retainers made, upper and lower!!! Taylor was fantastic about scheduling all of the different appointments, and was great about calling when there was a cancellation which allowed me to complete the process sooner!!! All of the technicians were wonderful! They did careful, exact work which helped ensure that everything fit perfectly when it was completed. Dr. Short was kind and considerate when he was doing the necessary drilling etc., and always communicated what he was doing, so I knew what to expect. I really appreciated how well he worked with his staff, and he always treated everyone with respect. I was not able to pay in full for all of services at the first appointment, and they were very understanding as I paid in increments. I would highly recommend Dr. Short at Midwest Dental in Belvidere, IL.

— Thank you for your review. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us.

Jennifer Wroblewski

Dec 07, 2023

The dentist was very rude and aggressive on my 2 daughters teeth. First and last time going there. The dentist name was Dr. Short. He basically called me a liar too. Very unprofessional.

Christopher Mccammond

Better than any other Rockford dentist. Actually worked with me. Didn't give me one sided opions. Gave me multiple options. Recommend to everyone!!!.

— Hi, Christopher! Thank you so much for taking a few moments to let us know how we are doing. Reading your review reminded us why we do what we do. It was truly a pleasure to serve you.

Erica Montoya

Jul 15, 2023

Such good care! Helena the hygienist is excellent at what she does and explains everything to you both before and as she does it. Dr. Short explained my situation to me in detail. He and Helena make a great care team. They take the most x-rays I have ever had done in a single visit. Clearly they value precision. He picked up on 3 separate issues my former dentist did not. Add to all that the cordial, attentive front desk experience and I am calling this place my new home. If you're in Rockford like I am, don't hesitate to switch dentists - the drive (20 mins) is so worth it. Small office with excellent communication all around. This place is gold.

— Thank you so much for your kind words, Erica. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. We count ourselves lucky for patients like you!

I have been thoroughly terrified of the dentist since I was kid. Dr. Short is incredible at what he does! Thank you for being a true family dentist for the entire family! I highly recommend him for you and your children! If I had him as my childhood dentist, I might not have the fear I do today! Thank you Dr. Short for providing exceptional service!

1st time patient. They were all nice and pleasant, but I made an appt for a cleaning and didn't even get one!! I've been to a slew of dentists in my life due to moving and insurance. NEVER not got a cleaning with an initial appt., which is what I requested when I made the appt. Waste of my time.

— Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, Joseph. We're sorry your experience wasn't a positive one. If you'd like to provide us additional details, please contact us directly at belvidere@midwest-dental.com.

Claudia McKinney

Jan 09, 2023

I have been going to Midwest Dental since November 2022. I went in with a golf ball size abscess on the roof of my mouth, it was horribly painful and quite disturbing to look at, Dr. Delfs walked by and I heard her say I can help her. She came in and explained what she would do. I told her I always get dry sockets and my teeth don't come out easy and in pieces. Well she said she has tricks for dry sockets and she did! I'm not saying it wasn't painful because there's no way it wouldn't be but so far she has pulled all my top teeth and we will start on bottom next week. So far no dry sockets. Dr. Delfs is my hero. The first day Arial assisted and made me feel so comfortable. I can't say I look forward to a visit to the dentist but I'm confident that they will take care of me. I love my care team at Midwest dental in Belvidere! I can't wait till I have teeth and can smile for a picture lil

— Hi, Claudia! Thank you so much for taking a few moments to let us know how we are doing. Reading your review reminded us why we do what we do. It was truly a pleasure to serve you.

I have had a wonderful experience with Midwest dental. They have helped me with many dental problems and they are very understanding of anxiety problems. I have had a good experience with everyone involved in my care, from the appointments being made to the procedures being done, the care explaining every step of the way I've had. Nothing but a good experience.

— Hi Pamala, we love hearing feedback like this from our patients. Thanks again for choosing us!

Denise Nichols

Nov 02, 2022

I tried to establish as a new patient. I was patient and understanding waiting months for a first visit. They called night before to cancel 2 visits in a row. Then when I failed to see and return a confirmation, for third attempted first visit, they cancelled my visit and refused to understand or compromise. Unprofessional and unempathetic-not a good combination in the healthcare world.

— Hi Denise, we always want our patients to have a positive experience and we're truly sorry that you did not. We appreciate you sharing your helpful feedback as it will help us improve. If you'd like to provide us additional details please contact us directly at belvidere@midwest-dental.com.

Called Midwest dental in an emergency, they politely figured out my situation got me in for an X-ray right away to check out my gums. Even got a same day cleaning by Kathy. Needless too say I was satisfied with the humor of the staff, effeteness, cleanliness and the fact that I felt cared for <3. I will be remembering this amazing dentist experience for the rest of my life, cause.. let’s be honest, we all hate the dentist. Definitely will recommend this place to anyone in the Belvedere area! Personal shout out too Jen for reminding me how even the dentist can be a fun filled environment with sass and humor.

Moved here from St. Louis. I had to find a new dentist. Mom and Dad went to Dr.Joe at Midwest Dental. Unfortunately there insurance changed. So they had to find a dentist covered by there new provider. My 1st and 2nd visit for exam, ex-rays, and cleaning were exceptional. The staff and Dr.Joe were also awesome, very thorough, answering all questions and concerns. Was able to see right away. I would highly recommend...

Nice place but I absolutely won’t go back there because of the horrifying club music they have blaring through the speakers... I couldn’t get out of that place fast enough. Change or get rid of the music altogether & I'll recommend Midwest to people.

— Hello Chachie. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience. On your next visit, we invite you to ask a member of our staff to change the music if it is something you don't enjoy. Thank you and we look forward to improving your experience at our office.

We stopped going to this dentist because the hygienist didn't honor our request for no fluoride (on your kid's teeth). It was bizarre how she snuck it in after we asked for none. When I went to a new dentist, within 6mo-1year of not going to midwest, the new dentist found borderline gingivitis (with some bone loss) and 4 cavities! We had been going to midwest dental for years.

Charles Morrison

Jan 03, 2020

The hygienist was very thorough with the cleaning and yet there wasn't much bleeding (I should really floss more). The front desk person did a great job of explaining my insurance benefits for the porcelain cap I need to replace (my previous dentist, from Rockford, was not good, it stayed on a year and almost a half... She was out of business when I went to get it replaced). The dentist was thorough with his check and examination and also, something I appreciate, humorous. We also discussed travel, another topic I enjoy.

kristy mcconnaghy

Dr. Joe and his team are wonderful! Kathy the hygienist is so kind. She really makes you feel at ease and is great at explaining everything in a way that makes sense to the patient. I came into my last appointment with my new 2 1/2 month old baby along. All the ladies at the front desk loved on her the whole time so i could get xrays and my cleaning. The baby was sound asleep and so comfortable when I was done; it made me so grateful to have such a wonderful place to go to for my oral care. I highly recommend Midwest Dental in Belvidere!!!

Nicholas Aulbert

Aug 12, 2019

Dr. Joe and his team are amazing. I woke up at 3am with extreme pain in one of my teeth that I'm waiting to have pulled. Dr. Joe responded to the emergency line almost immediately and gave good advice on what to do and why it was happening. Couldn't be more thankful! You guys rock.

Gail Larsen

Jun 23, 2019

The only reason that I will return is because of Kathy the hygienist. I will not see the dentist again. My dealing with the dentist is that I was sitting in the chair, back to the door, when he came in and said hello and shook my hand from behind. No face to face contact at all. He had me lie back, he picked at 4 teeth, said to clean around crowns, and left. He charged $50 for less than 1 minute of contact. He is very unprofessional to his clients.

Nicole Aulbert

Jun 19, 2019

My husband and I have each had our teeth cleaned here twice. We had xrays taken the first time. EXCELLENT customer service. The ladies at the front desk are super kind and helpful! The dental assistant is so friendly - she always makes me feel welcome. The dentist did a great job and was willing to answer any questions we had. We had some issues come up with our insurance and they were willing to help us figure out what to do. Overall a great experience with them. Plus there's free coffee in the waiting room - bonus ;)

Peter Stice

Mar 25, 2019

Dr. Joe Karpiak and his office has an exceptional practice and is second to none in customer service. From the moment I walked in, I was treated like family with friendly staff and told me exactly what to expect for my visit. After my cleaning, Dr. Joe came in and clearly explained his diagnosis and future visit expectations in common language, no medical jargon. He also fixed a chip on a tooth in the back of my mouth and I couldnt even tell he did anything! He has a very fine attention to detail and perfection for his patients. I am overall very pleased with my visit and the work this team does!

gave me an exam, recommended me for a "deep cleaning" that was over $1000, of which I would have had to pay $300 out of pocket. When I said no, just give me a regular cleaning, Dr. Joe refused because he had already "diagnosed" me for a deep cleaning. Oh, he had his assistant deliver all this news. What a racket. If you looking for an honest dentist, skip over Midwest Dental.

I needed a new dentist, so I looked at my coverage and saw these guys and looked them up. They have a 5 star rating so I decided to call them. First call didn't get answered, that's ok I understand they were probably busy. I called a while later and the phone call got answered but the person on the other end hung up probably half a second later. I also went online to get an appointment, I got the email saying they got it. I never received a call. That being said I won't be trying to go here any more. I called a different office and they picked up the call first ring, and I was able to get an appointment no hassle. Midwest dental was closer to both work and home. Awful customer service.

— Hello Steven. Thank you for providing your feedback. We are trying to get in contact with you and would like to help. Please call our office at 815-547-5151.

Dr. Short is amazing. He's competent, efficient, and experienced. I broke my face and he repaired me teeth to get my smile and bite back to normal. He wouldn't accept anything less than the best I could get, which i am grateful for. The support staff are very friendly and helpful. He also does invisalign or some kind of non-traditional orthodontics. Couldn't be happier with the work I've had done.

— Hi David, thank you for your 5-star review, we really appreciate it! We're going to share it with the whole team.

Kathy the dental hygienist was amazing and kind. She made sure I was doing alright throughout the cleaning and told me what she was going to do before she did it so I wouldn’t be afraid.

Jeffrey Jordan

Jun 11, 2024

I've been going to Midwest dental in Belvidere seeing Dr Short for over a year now. I am no stranger to the dental chair and have received 4 crowns and a root canal by him in that short amount of time. His "Old School" Approach of simplistic communicationis paired with his sincere desire to improve your dental health is simply top notch, which is truly a well needed breath of fresh air in todays dental industry! Do yourself a favor and experience him and his incredible staff, led by Ariel and Taylor, for yourself. You will be so glad you did.

— Thanks for making us smile, Jeffrey! We appreciate your review.

Yajaira Aguirre

May 12, 2024

Our family really misses Dr. Joe. The new Dentist “Dr. Short temper” needs to work on his bed side manners skills. Positive communication goes a long way. Our family has had multiple neg incidents with him. His way in trying to correct it is by telling me to find another dentist. Absolutely love the staff. The rest of the staff is great. We will not be back until they find a dentist that speaks to their pts with RESPECT!!!! Upper management needs to investigate this!!!!!!!

— Hi Yajaira, your feedback is important to us. If you would like to provide any additional information, please reach out to our team directly at belvidere@midwest-dental.com.

Amazing! I don't even know where to begin. The entire staff, and I mean the entire staff at Midwest Dental, are the most amazing, caring, professional individuals you could ever encounter. I personally have had some bad and so so experiences with dentists over my 44 years but Midwest Dental completely blow everyone else out of the water. Absolutely no discomfort with any of my procedures so far and one of them was a crown. He even fixed a discolored tooth from a repair I had done back in my late teens that had discolored to a nasty yellow. 2 other dentists told me I needed thousands of dollars in crowns, he literally polished it up and it looks perfect. THANK YOU!!!

— That is so great to hear. Thank you! It's wonderful to see that you had a positive experience with us.

Dec 22, 2023

I’m very pleased with the dental care I have received from Dr. Short and his entire staff!! I started out with cleanings, then I needed two crowns, upper and lower, and had retainers made, upper and lower!!! Taylor was fantastic about scheduling all of the different appointments, and was great about calling when there was a cancellation which allowed me to complete the process sooner!!! All of the technicians were wonderful! They did careful, exact work which helped ensure that everything fit perfectly when it was completed. Dr. Short was kind and considerate when he was doing the necessary drilling etc., and always communicated what he was doing, so I knew what to expect. I really appreciated how well he worked with his staff, and he always treated everyone with respect. I was not able to pay in full for all of services at the first appointment, and they were very understanding as I paid in increments. I would highly recommend Dr. Short at Midwest Dental in Belvidere, IL.

— Thank you for your review. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us.

Jennifer Wroblewski

The dentist was very rude and aggressive on my 2 daughters teeth. First and last time going there. The dentist name was Dr. Short. He basically called me a liar too. Very unprofessional.

Erica Montoya

Jul 15, 2023

Such good care! Helena the hygienist is excellent at what she does and explains everything to you both before and as she does it. Dr. Short explained my situation to me in detail. He and Helena make a great care team. They take the most x-rays I have ever had done in a single visit. Clearly they value precision. He picked up on 3 separate issues my former dentist did not. Add to all that the cordial, attentive front desk experience and I am calling this place my new home. If you're in Rockford like I am, don't hesitate to switch dentists - the drive (20 mins) is so worth it. Small office with excellent communication all around. This place is gold.

— Thank you so much for your kind words, Erica. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. We count ourselves lucky for patients like you!

1st time patient. They were all nice and pleasant, but I made an appt for a cleaning and didn't even get one!! I've been to a slew of dentists in my life due to moving and insurance. NEVER not got a cleaning with an initial appt., which is what I requested when I made the appt. Waste of my time.

Claudia McKinney

Jan 09, 2023

I have been going to Midwest Dental since November 2022. I went in with a golf ball size abscess on the roof of my mouth, it was horribly painful and quite disturbing to look at, Dr. Delfs walked by and I heard her say I can help her. She came in and explained what she would do. I told her I always get dry sockets and my teeth don't come out easy and in pieces. Well she said she has tricks for dry sockets and she did! I'm not saying it wasn't painful because there's no way it wouldn't be but so far she has pulled all my top teeth and we will start on bottom next week. So far no dry sockets. Dr. Delfs is my hero. The first day Arial assisted and made me feel so comfortable. I can't say I look forward to a visit to the dentist but I'm confident that they will take care of me. I love my care team at Midwest dental in Belvidere! I can't wait till I have teeth and can smile for a picture lil

I have had a wonderful experience with Midwest dental. They have helped me with many dental problems and they are very understanding of anxiety problems. I have had a good experience with everyone involved in my care, from the appointments being made to the procedures being done, the care explaining every step of the way I've had. Nothing but a good experience.

Denise Nichols

Nov 02, 2022

I tried to establish as a new patient. I was patient and understanding waiting months for a first visit. They called night before to cancel 2 visits in a row. Then when I failed to see and return a confirmation, for third attempted first visit, they cancelled my visit and refused to understand or compromise. Unprofessional and unempathetic-not a good combination in the healthcare world.

— Hi Denise, we always want our patients to have a positive experience and we're truly sorry that you did not. We appreciate you sharing your helpful feedback as it will help us improve. If you'd like to provide us additional details please contact us directly at belvidere@midwest-dental.com.

Called Midwest dental in an emergency, they politely figured out my situation got me in for an X-ray right away to check out my gums. Even got a same day cleaning by Kathy. Needless too say I was satisfied with the humor of the staff, effeteness, cleanliness and the fact that I felt cared for <3. I will be remembering this amazing dentist experience for the rest of my life, cause.. let’s be honest, we all hate the dentist. Definitely will recommend this place to anyone in the Belvedere area! Personal shout out too Jen for reminding me how even the dentist can be a fun filled environment with sass and humor.

Moved here from St. Louis. I had to find a new dentist. Mom and Dad went to Dr.Joe at Midwest Dental. Unfortunately there insurance changed. So they had to find a dentist covered by there new provider. My 1st and 2nd visit for exam, ex-rays, and cleaning were exceptional. The staff and Dr.Joe were also awesome, very thorough, answering all questions and concerns. Was able to see right away. I would highly recommend...

Nice place but I absolutely won’t go back there because of the horrifying club music they have blaring through the speakers... I couldn’t get out of that place fast enough. Change or get rid of the music altogether & I'll recommend Midwest to people.

— Hello Chachie. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience. On your next visit, we invite you to ask a member of our staff to change the music if it is something you don't enjoy. Thank you and we look forward to improving your experience at our office.

We stopped going to this dentist because the hygienist didn't honor our request for no fluoride (on your kid's teeth). It was bizarre how she snuck it in after we asked for none. When I went to a new dentist, within 6mo-1year of not going to midwest, the new dentist found borderline gingivitis (with some bone loss) and 4 cavities! We had been going to midwest dental for years.

Charles Morrison

Jan 03, 2020

The hygienist was very thorough with the cleaning and yet there wasn't much bleeding (I should really floss more). The front desk person did a great job of explaining my insurance benefits for the porcelain cap I need to replace (my previous dentist, from Rockford, was not good, it stayed on a year and almost a half... She was out of business when I went to get it replaced). The dentist was thorough with his check and examination and also, something I appreciate, humorous. We also discussed travel, another topic I enjoy.

Dr. Joe and his team are wonderful! Kathy the hygienist is so kind. She really makes you feel at ease and is great at explaining everything in a way that makes sense to the patient. I came into my last appointment with my new 2 1/2 month old baby along. All the ladies at the front desk loved on her the whole time so i could get xrays and my cleaning. The baby was sound asleep and so comfortable when I was done; it made me so grateful to have such a wonderful place to go to for my oral care. I highly recommend Midwest Dental in Belvidere!!!

Nicholas Aulbert

Dr. Joe and his team are amazing. I woke up at 3am with extreme pain in one of my teeth that I'm waiting to have pulled. Dr. Joe responded to the emergency line almost immediately and gave good advice on what to do and why it was happening. Couldn't be more thankful! You guys rock.

Gail Larsen

Jun 23, 2019

The only reason that I will return is because of Kathy the hygienist. I will not see the dentist again. My dealing with the dentist is that I was sitting in the chair, back to the door, when he came in and said hello and shook my hand from behind. No face to face contact at all. He had me lie back, he picked at 4 teeth, said to clean around crowns, and left. He charged $50 for less than 1 minute of contact. He is very unprofessional to his clients.

Nicole Aulbert

Jun 19, 2019

My husband and I have each had our teeth cleaned here twice. We had xrays taken the first time. EXCELLENT customer service. The ladies at the front desk are super kind and helpful! The dental assistant is so friendly - she always makes me feel welcome. The dentist did a great job and was willing to answer any questions we had. We had some issues come up with our insurance and they were willing to help us figure out what to do. Overall a great experience with them. Plus there's free coffee in the waiting room - bonus ;)

I have always had great service at Midwest Dental. Kathy is wonderful Dental Hygienist and I would go to no one else. We are moving out of state but planning to come back for our cleaning so I think that says it all! Thanks Kathy!!!

It was my first time at this dentist. They made me feel welcomed and cared for . They were supper nice . The dentist came In and told me what he was going to do. I can't wait to come back here in October for my next cleaning.

Dr. Joe Karpiak and his office has an exceptional practice and is second to none in customer service. From the moment I walked in, I was treated like family with friendly staff and told me exactly what to expect for my visit. After my cleaning, Dr. Joe came in and clearly explained his diagnosis and future visit expectations in common language, no medical jargon. He also fixed a chip on a tooth in the back of my mouth and I couldnt even tell he did anything! He has a very fine attention to detail and perfection for his patients. I am overall very pleased with my visit and the work this team does!

gave me an exam, recommended me for a "deep cleaning" that was over $1000, of which I would have had to pay $300 out of pocket. When I said no, just give me a regular cleaning, Dr. Joe refused because he had already "diagnosed" me for a deep cleaning. Oh, he had his assistant deliver all this news. What a racket. If you looking for an honest dentist, skip over Midwest Dental.

I needed a new dentist, so I looked at my coverage and saw these guys and looked them up. They have a 5 star rating so I decided to call them. First call didn't get answered, that's ok I understand they were probably busy. I called a while later and the phone call got answered but the person on the other end hung up probably half a second later. I also went online to get an appointment, I got the email saying they got it. I never received a call. That being said I won't be trying to go here any more. I called a different office and they picked up the call first ring, and I was able to get an appointment no hassle. Midwest dental was closer to both work and home. Awful customer service.

— Hello Steven. Thank you for providing your feedback. We are trying to get in contact with you and would like to help. Please call our office at 815-547-5151.
