Julie Dawson is an awesome Dental Hygienist. She has been cleaning my teeth for years. She never causes any pain. The dentists are all gentle and careful too. I actually look forward to going to Midwest Dental.

My family has been a part of Associated Dentist for many, many years and have always had the BEST service....when they changed over to Midwest Dental we wondered what would change. Well....nothing changed....they are still the same people offering the same great service! When Dr. Unterman retired I, again, was concerned with who would replace him...now we see Dr. Bhandary and she is very, very good! You can't go wrong by using Midwest Dental for your dental care!

Midwest Dental has served my family for the past 3 years. I've tried other Dental offices in and around Pontiac for my family, this has been the easiest dental office to get in for appointments I've ever been to into for appointments. Dr. Bess and Dr. Gray are amazing! My Son has disabilities and they always do their best to make sure he is comfortable. The Hygienist /*Assistants are all very knowledgeable and of the highest quality, I know... *I've had this job before! (C) The front office staff and billing department is always right on, pays attention to detail, fast, and courteous. I would suggest Midwest Dental to any family and friend.

Carol Seeman did an amazing job cleaning my teeth and Dr Gray was very kind and gentle during the exam. He took his time and answered my questions about an upcoming procedure. Definitely will come back!

I had to have a series of visits after my cleaning for a few things and each time Dr. T and Connie were really good ... kind, gentle and aware of my comfort level. They worked very well together and let me know of what they were doing each step of the way. I appreciated knowing what was happening. They were even able to move my schedule up in the day due to incoming inclement weather.

My Dentist Dr Angela Bess & her assistant Jill were absolutely amazing. They both set my dental fears at ease and made me 100% comfortable. Because of them I am looking forward to my next visit. It has taken me almost 50 years to find a dentist and I have finally found one for good!!! Cant thank them enough!!

Scheduling was very easy and cleaning was done well and without any issues. Easy process even with new safety protocols in place.

Went here because I did not have a regular dentist and needed a referral to get an impacted wisdom tooth removed by an orthopedic surgeon. I told the person I made the appointment with that all I needed was a referral. But when I saw Dr. Gray, he wanted to pull the tooth and the rest that day without sedating me. I was uncomfortable with this and, since my insurance wasn't going to cover the procedure, I figured since I'm paying thousands for it and the Dentist is actually a SERVICE PROVIDER that I am entitled to say how I want my teeth pulled from my head. So he had an almost hostile conversation with me about getting it pulled and in a matter of 5 minutes he insulted me, belittled me, patronized me, did not care to hear what I thought or felt, behaved as though he thought the world of himself and couldn't be bothered to treat me like a human being with respect. To be honest, I felt like he was just mad about not getting the money and considered me childish for wanting to be sedated. Oh and to top it off, my wisdom tooth was impacted and I was in so much pain that I couldn't open my mouth well at all. He could have gently pried my mouth open to get a better view but, once again, couldn't be bothered, and stuck all four of his fingers in my mouth and ripped it open like there was nothing wrong at all. Not cool. Overall the worst experience I've ever had at a dentist. Side note, and after reading these reviews, I'm clearly not the only one who found this guy's behavior completely unacceptable.

My visit was wonderful. First I had a cleaning, Angie was very thorough and gentle. I got a little scolding for not flossing, but that was well deserved. After that Dr Gray did stage two of my dental implant. He and Bria were also great. Never had any pain or discomfort, and they explained everything in real time so I wasn’t caught off guard. Excellent dental office!!!

My daughter had all 4 wisdom teeth removed 1 1/2 weeks ago by Dr Gray. It was amazing. She did wonderful. It was a better experience and healing process than the rest of our family who have had it done in Bloomington. I highly recommend Dr Gray. If your insurance is accepted at Midwest it also makes it more affordable.

It was my first time going to this facility. Staff and Dr’s were amazing and so welcoming. I give this 4 stars because I had my appointment when they just opened back up from the Covid-19. They are charging each patient $12 for “their” PPE. Not your own. I had my own mask on prior to walking in for my appointment. I personally did not agree to that. Every establishment should provide their own PPE. Taking money from people whom have been on hard times also during this pandemic do not need to pay another charge. This is my own opinion.

Everyone from the front desk staff on back to Dr. Gray has made dentist visits a positive experience for our family! They took our allergies very seriously and went above and beyond to ensure safety. My children are already asking when they *get* to go back to the dentist. I call that a win!

I wouldn't recommend this place .Dr. Bess said I needed 11 extractions and 2 partials to replace the teeth which I totally had no problem with. She told me to go to an oral surgeon but I had another Dentist that would remove the teeth which would be much less expensive however she told me if I was to go to that dentist to pull the teeth she wouldn't make my partials. I don't understand if she can't pull the teeth why she would care where I go to have them pulled. All I can figure must get a kickback from the oral surgeon..Anyway got it all done by another dentist who didn't care where I got them pulled.

I work in customer service. I understand bad days and the effect rude customers can have on a persons day. Therefore, I take care to be a completely considerate person when dealing with other customer service workers. In spite of this, I can honestly say this was the worst experience I’ve ever had at a dentist office. Don’t go see Dr. gray. I am so glad I decided to go somewhere else instead of let this guy rip my teeth out of my head. He didn’t seem to care at all about what he was doing and was visibly annoyed with me for who knows what the entire conversation. Acted like he’d rather be anywhere else and was rude enough to make the assistant who was previously very talkative go completely quiet throughout the rest of the consultation which he wasn’t even there for. Just up and walked away when I told him I’d rather have a referral than let him take my teeth out, which is what I said when I called the receptionist to set up the appointment. So bad.

I heard really great things about Midwest dental and Dr Day being an amazing dentist, unfortunately when I booked an appointment I was greeted with a doctor Gray I’ve never meet such an arrogant dentist, he likes to chastise his patient, and talk to them like their children. While getting a procedure was told to raise my hand if I needed a moment and when I followed his instructions he proceeded to snap on me for doing what I was told to do. So do I follow your instructions or do I not?? He didn’t seem to treat his assistants very well either. With this experience even though I’ve moved away farther from my original dentist I’m going to return to them. My advice to anyone is schedule your appointments with Dr Day he is definitely the dentist to see there sorry we didn’t get to meet!

UPDATE: I was seen by my endodontist yesterday 3/5/19...the problem was quickly identified and I was immediately treated with a root canal. The procedure was done on the “virgin” tooth that Dr. Gray at Midwest Dental was so kind to point out had nothing wrong with it. Thank you again Dr. Gray, due to your exemplary X-ray reading abilities and failure to assist me, I endured unnecessary pain for nearly a week before my issue could be resolved. For the record, there happened to be a space between the root, gum line and tooth enamel allowing exposure of dentin and encroachment of salivary bacteria causing inflammation and mild necrosis to the pulp. I guess sometimes you need to be more then just booksmart.

let's just start by saying... I am a huge coward when it comes to the dentist, haven't been in some time. From the time I walked in to the time I walked out I was treated very friendly and professionally, have another appointment next week and I am sure it will be the same

My family has been a part of Associated Dentist for many, many years and have always had the BEST service....when they changed over to Midwest Dental we wondered what would change. Well....nothing changed....they are still the same people offering the same great service! When Dr. Unterman retired I, again, was concerned with who would replace him...now we see Dr. Bhandary and she is very, very good! You can't go wrong by using Midwest Dental for your dental care!

I would definitely recommend Dr. Bess, she made me very comfortable and I am a baby at the dentist. She personally called me when I had a question, was very patient and reassuring.

Dr. Day is exceptional. He has been very patient with me during my nerve wrecking state of mind, while dealing with my first root canal. I would recommend Midwest Dental to anyone who is looking for dental work.

Mediocre dentistry at best. Never able to get an appointment and the dental hygienist are extremely rough. Don't waste your time here, find another dentist.

Good work, fair price. Fixed my kids cap for free even though it was done by another dentist. Twice. And they seem able to use the insurance tricks to avoid me paying more than I need to. So often we see a good healthcare provider hobbled by a bad front office that can't play the stupid insurance game. These folks do it right for me at least, and in my own home town. Gracias!~

My husband and I both had a wonderful experience here. As new patients we found the perfect place for our dental needs. Everyone made us feel like we had been going here forever. I can honestly say I enjoyed the checkup and cleaning , which is a first for me after 60 years. Dr. Day explained dental issues that no dentist had ever explained to me before. Needless to say we will staying with Midwest Dental.

Not looking forward to coming into the dentist to have a broken tooth looked at I have to say that I was very happy with choosing Midwest Dental. This was my first visit and I will be back as a regular now for sure on all routine and dental work. Dr Lentz and his assistant Gretchen really eased my mind and talked me through every detail of what they were going to do. They made me feel comfortable and calm in a very uncomfortable situation for me. My recovery has been great and I will recommend Midwest Dental to anyone that I talk to for sure. Thank you for being so good to me while I was being such a big baby.

Now in my 50's, I have been going to Dr. Day at Midwest Dental since childhood. You could not ask for a more talented, professional group of people. Julie has been my hygienist for many years now, and she always does a great job. I never feel rushed at Midwest Dental. To the contrary, they always take the time to listen to any concerns I have about my teeth and are always able to get me in for emergency oral care when needed. I highly recommend this office for quality dental care.

I have the great misfortune of having less than ideal genetics for good teeth. Subsequently, I have had more than my fair share of dental work. The crew at Midwest Dental, from reception to check-out are fantastic! Dr. Smitha Bhandary is the best! Typically I am difficult to get numb, but she is very accurate, keeps you pain-free, and the anesthetic is starting to wear off as you leave the office. I am so sorry, as I have forgotten their names, but her tech and hygienist are excellent also! They are both great at what they do and the whole gang is genuinely pleasant to be with. I'm not a huge fan of getting my teeth worked over, but when I need too, I wouldn't want anyone else to do the task!

We were looking for a local dentist as we had moved to the area in the last year and it was time for check ups. Midwest Dental staff took all the information for our family of 5 over the phone and was able to get us appointments right away. Two of my girls were seen the same day! Once we arrived the reception staff were super friendly and we were seen very quickly with hardly any wait. The staff and dentist answered all my questions and were just great with my younger daughters! I highly recommend this office!
