Even though visiting the dentist is not my favorite thing to do, Dr. Watkins and his staff are the best! He is always friendly, compassionate, patient, and professional. The dental hygienist, Wendy, is always pleasant and does an excellent job with cleaning our teeth. Our children are all grown now, but we started going to Dr. Watkins when our children were small, and we have nothing but good things to say about Midwest Dental Jacksonville. In fact, one of our daughters became a dentist because of the p

The hygienist (I think her name is Andrea?) and Dr. Mike were so nice and explained everything as they were examining my 11 year old. They talked to him like he was important and were very caring. It made the visit much nicer to have such a friendly doctor and staff!

My family and I have been going to Midwest Dental long before it was Midwest Dental. We appreciate the professional level of care we receive there on each visit. They are all friendly, skilled in their specific discipline, and make it as pleasurable an experience for the patient as possible. I cannot imagine going anywhere else.

Everyone is always so pleasant. Dr. Watkins and his staff are so courteous. Every request to "Open a little wider" is said with "Please". They explain each step before they do it and again, always with a "please" and "thank you". In this day and age manners are so often missing, but everyone at Dr. Watkins' office goes above and beyond being friendly and polite. All of the work I have had done is exceptional.

It was a nice day, and I am always happy that no dental problems were discovered.. Having grown up in the 50s with Dr Summers who could always find a cavity or three, his slow speed drill and lack of novacaine makes my most recent visit seem more like a pleasant visit with friends.
