I absolutely love this office and staff! I have Had a great experience each and every time. They are so kind, caring, and always willing to listen & answer my questions. They provide exceptional pre & post care education. My lifelong fears and anxiety about dentistry have subsided thanks to this office. Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking such good care of me :-)

Switched to Midwest Dental because of a change in insurance. Professional and friendly staff and works with my schedule to get me in. Excellent screening and hygiene appointments.

I would be careful going to this place. I went in for an extraction and the dentist did not know what he was doing or he could not read the horrible xray, probably both. The dentist was new and it w as s obvious he did not know what he was doing. He said it was not a simple extraction and referred me to a specialist. So after paying Midwest I had to pay a specialist which said he did not know why they sent me to him for a simple extraction. He had to take xrays again which cost me again because the xrays Midwest sent me with were horrible and you could see nothing. I will never go back to this place or recommend them to anyone.

Dr. Connolly has taken some of the fear out of a dental visit-- for that I am really appreciative! He takes the time to explain what and how it's going to be done. I've got such a sensitive mouth. It's nice having someone so honest and personable... And educational.

Once Midwest dental took over they quickly made up reasons to get rid of staff that had been there for over 25 years. Apparently, 20 + an hour was more than they wanted to spend . They could get much cheaper help. I am surprised to see any of Dr. Burges staff still working for Midwest. Truly sad with all that has happened since the takeover. The receptionist, Alaina, is rude and unprofessional. I work for another dental office. When I call for other patients records she acts as if I am a problem. I really dislike contacting this office and dealing with her.

I love going here. It's easy to make an appointment and the dental hygienists are very professional and most important very friendly. I never have any issues! Staff does a fantastic job welcoming patients.

This office has good hygentists, and Dr. Mike is very nice. However, good luck getting past their AWFUL receptionist. (Alaina. ) She is very rude, makes rude comments and does not return messages in a timely manner. This has been on going for 2 years. Today I am done. I will find a dentist with a more professional staff.

All of our family visits Midwest Dental. We have for years. Our Sons basically have been going there since they have been in school. The Staff is so kind, caring, and very professional. The office is clean. We've had no problems making appointments. They explain all the procedures very thoroughly, and even make the experiences there for smaller children as much as possible. I remember they gave my Son a pair of sunglasses to wear one time because he thought the lights were to bright in his eyes when he was laying back in the chair getting his teeth cleaned. I would certainly recommend them without a doubt, and have to co workers of mine. They like going here as well.

My first visit was excellent. My follow up visit with Dr. Connelley for 5 cavities was excellent, too!! Was out of there way ahead of schedule and perfect work.

Due to a physical illness, my teeth are "dying," and need extracted and dentures put in. All the staff treated me with passion, and Dr. Connelly spent a long time explaining why it is imperative to get it done now, and how dentures will change my life. I left with a summary of expenses and a better understanding of why this happened when I had taken care of my teeth.

I'm new to this office but we had excellent service. They were great with my 4 year old and myself. I scheduled many appointments in the future to further our business with them.

Dr. Connolly is awesome! At my last cleaning, he noticed that I needed a filling and recommended it be taken care of before it was painful. Thank you!

We have been going here for years. Sarah and Carla are both great hygienists. On my last visit, Dr. Connolly found a tooth that should be extracted. I had a million questions and he took a lot of extra time to answer and discuss options in detail. He did this more than one time. The team at Midwest were very helpful.

I have gone here for years (many years with Dr Burge) Everyone is very professional and very friendly. I haven’t needed anything other than cleaning for a long time. I have continued to come here because of Sarah, she is the best!

Have been going here for many years (when Dr. Burge was still practicing). Have always had a very pleasant experience. Sarah always takes good care of me, and the dental assistants are the best. Dr. Lentz is a new addition to the staff, and he is wonderful! He explained everything he was doing, and made sure I was comfortable at all times. I would definitely recommend this practice to everyone.

I hadn't been to the dentist in 20 years. They took care of me. Walked me through each step. They cleaned my teeth. Just had 2 fillings done in about 20 minutes. Very attentive to detail in their work and taking care of their patients. I also really like their email and text reminders for my appointments. I highly recommend them!

Friendly as always and quick. Have been going to them for the last 10 years or so and always enjoy the process (as far as going to the dentist goes).

Chelsey Campbell

I didn't even go in there! I called, no answer so I left a message they called back quick which was good BUT whoever the woman was that called me back was rude! Acted like it was a big deal to call me back, or answer my questions. Then when I tell her nevermind she just hung up. No, have a nice day or anything. I'm sorry but if you hate your job that much go somewhere else. I feel bad for whoever goes to this place. And as I read the other reviews I'm surprised its even still open. Ya'll need to lose your tudes and give BETTER CUSTOMER SERVICE because you lack that skill.

My husband and I have been going to Midwest Dental for quite some time. Dr. Burge was our first dentist. He retired and then Dr. Opis took over. I have always had an enjoyable visit. Everyone is very friendly and willing to answer all questions. I highly recommend Midwest Dental. If you are afraid of dentists, have know fear. Midwest Dental will make you feel very comfortable. I rate you +++++++++++

I was there yesterday and I had to get 2 teeth pulled. Dr. Lucy is AWESOME and so is her crew. They are always so friendly and they like to joke around which is right up my alley. I will never change dentist. Love Midwest Dental!!!
