Everyone is very nice and helpful. They explain everything up front before any work is scheduled or done. I have never felt so comfortable going to the dentist, until now.

I had a positive experience! I was greeted at the front desk and was brought back in a timely manner. This is my second visit with Alyssa . She is a wonderful hygenist and a great person overall! Dr Salma Faraz did a thorough exam and I left feeling confident that my dental needs were well met.

Far and away the best Dental practice I have ever visited. The staff is remarkably friendly and kind. The services received are always painless. Dr. Faraz is wonderful. Ann and Angie (the front desk staff) are BFF material! Alyssa the Hygienist is wonderful as well. I have a family with 3 kids, we all look forward to our appointments. We are grateful to have such a wonderful office to receive our dental care! Can't say enough with how friendly, thorough, and professional each and every person is in this office!

This was the worst dental experience of my life. I had to wait four months for my denture Because it was being made in a lab out in Elgin called Vitality, and it falls out when I eat. They made me a plastic replacement and it was also defective. Dr. Selma Farah Geriatra was great, but she knew I suffered for four months of embarrassment and discomfort.

I have been a patient at this office for about 2 years. I had a crown placed with Dr. Salma recently and she was very gentle and thorough. The staff is very welcoming and takes the time to explain procedures very well. Jeannine was assisting Dr. Salma and she did a great job making sure I was comfortable and answered all my questions. Also, Angie is always very helpful and works hard to make sure patients always leave satisfied.

Had appointment today with Alyssa for my first deep cleaning. Was extremely nervous and didn't know what to expect. She was wonderful! Not only did she explain every step of the procedure, but was also very kind, caring, and comforting throughout. Thank you again Alyssa for everything!

Love my dental office staff! I was in today for a cleaning with Alyssa and she is thorough and very sweet. Also met Dr. Salma for the first time, she is wonderful. So very caring and kind with her patients. She is passionate about her profession as a dentist.

The office staff, hygienist and dentist are very friendly and thorough. I have not had an unpleasant experience which I am sure can't be said for every dentist's office.

We took the kids in for their check ups and they were a bit anxious with their visit. However the staff was more than friendly and the kids left feeling excited and happy that they had ZERO cavities!

I've been to Midwest Dental a few times now and every visit has been great! The staff is always very pleasant, especially Angie the receptionist, Alyssa the dental hygienist and Dr. Salma Faraz. Everyone here is wonderful and really goes out of their way to make sure you leave satisfied.

I’ve been going to Midwest Dental for a few years now and the staff is never short of amazing. The dental hygienist is super sweet and does an amazing job with my cleanings. The front desk staff are really nice and attentive. The office is always clean and I never have an issue getting an appointment. Love Midwest!

I was in the office waiting for my friend when I had the opportunity to observe Angie - The front-desk gal. I was so impressed by her mannerism and her professionalism. She showed each and every patient common courtesy and did not rush one patient to get to the next. Angie was remarkable at her job. I even asked if they take my dental insurance. Hats off to ANGIE !!!

I was very nervous when I entered for my first appointment here. My past experiences at other offices have not comfortable ones..... but here the dental hygenist Alyssa makes you feel right at home! She is gentle, honest, and for being so young her work is that of a 30 year veteran. She restored my confidence to crack a smile. I could not have been happier with everything I have had done here. Before, I was scared of the dentist but after coming here I look forward to getting my teeth cleaned!

The dental hygienist Alyssa did a great job! Very pleasant girl and thorough cleaning. I will refer everyone to her.

I had a cleaning a couple months back with the dental hygienist, Alyssa Weglarz. It was a great experience, she was thorough, gentle and very personable. I can notice a significant difference when she was done with my cleaning, my teeth were significantly whiter. She is always friendly and knowledgeable. I will definitely keep going back.

I have been seeing Dr. Schulte and his staff for over 20 years. He's the best. He truly is a painless dentist. I have never had an issue with pain or the work he's done on my teeth. His very competent staff is more then helpful and friendly. Michelle at the front desk was most efficient in helping me with my dental insurance. Angie is , along with being extremely personable, the best dental assistant I've ever had. I am so, so sad that Jim will be retiring. Hopefully, the rest of you will be there until .....well a long, long time.

I just love this office . They don't just walk you up and say bye Angie the assistant gives hugs and she does a great job on my teeth!They get to know you on a personal level and really care about ya! The Doctors are amazing ,very knowledgeable and have a great chair side manor. The office itself feels really welcoming and the front desk staff really seems like they are happy caring people , I love being greeted with a smile and warm tone.I love the lobby dental museum , really interesting to see the old fashioned dental equipment and tools used in the early 1920'sThanks Midwest Dental for being my home dental office

This place is awful. The dentist has a personality of a wall. He was so limited on time, the dental hygienist was with you more. Also, I'm a smoker, I was constantly criticized for being a smoker, by the non personable dentist. I would never go here again. The rates for your dentistry needs are very expensive also. There is way better dentists out there willing to help you and not criticize you and take care of your dentistry needs.
