Tried to make an appointment. They told me to go somewhere else. Im a pre-existing customer. Still baffled by it. This was few months back. Just got a mailer today to make an appointment. How Comical. 👎🏽👎🏽

Super happy Dr. Lyons is back @ the Sterling location. He treated me very well and explained everything throughout the whole procedure, which is very rare in this day and age. He was also very personable and so very helpful. I lost a crown and unfortunately didn't have insurance @ the time. Using the old crown isn't something that's done often, but, he sculpted it and made it work/fit perfectly, saving me over $1,000.00. It was definitely not the easiest route to go, but, because he actually cared, he made it work for me and I can't thank him enough!!

I really wanted to like this place since it's local. My family of six (thats a lot of potential money in dentist appointments over 18 years) needs a family dentist. I sent in the form on their website on January 12th which stated someone would get in touch with me soon to confirm. I called on the 25th because I hadnt heard from anyone. The receptionist took my info down and placed me on a hold. When she came back she said "the weather" had their dentist office backed up. What weather? For two weeks? The snow storm supposedly happening on 1/25 was hours from starting and I wasnt looking for an emergency visit. She told me I should call back next week. I asked if that means they arent taking new patients at this time and she said "we are but were really backed up we MIGHT be able to help next week." Which 100% came across as "We cant be bothered to take your info down and help you get an appointment next week or the week after right now, try again later." I said no thanks and called Dr. Rick. Got an appointment in 3 minutes with his staff for next Tuesday. Im sure the dentists at midwest dental are great but Customer service/reception is the face of a business and theirs sucks.

Probably shouldn't be rude and laugh at a client when they call about an insecurity or issue they are having. Rudest staff ever. 10/10 would NOT recommend

Very knowledgeable and patient to explain causes, effect and procedures for dental care, including insurance and billing. COVID-19 Protection was extremely impressive. Never been a fan of Dentist, however this office and staff changed my thoughts, immediately upon arrival.

I like the dental place. The staff workers are nice and make you feel homey. And the dentist she does excellent work on teeth. I would recommend her to anyone I knew. I'm glad I found my dentist to go to when I need a fixing in my mouth.

Love this place so far. I have fairly good teeth, in my opinion. And other dentist have told me this too. But other ones have 'strongly' suggested putting a crown on this tooth or that one. And many times suggested whitening. So far, I have not heard a thing here about either, crowns or whitening. I know they are all trying to make a living. But do what you do well like the kind folks here, and patients will come to you. Thanks.

I have had nothing but good experiences since I have been going to Midwest Dental, the people have all been very nice and very informative, they will help with all your needs whether your scared, in need of financial aid, or just need more directive on how to care for your teeth. They are always on the patients side and not just out to hit your pocket book. I would recommend them to anyone including small children.

Jena, my dental hygenist, was very understanding of the reason for me since I had not been to a dentist for many years. She was very knowledgeable and worked very hard yet very easy to get my teeth cleaned of all the tarter build up from many years not being to a dentist. My only question I do not understand is with the office secretary. I have and presented the Humana plan that Midwest Dental everywhere accepts and many give at least a 20% discount on all work, since I do not have any other dental insurance but the office secretary told me I have to purchase their plan to get a discount. I do not understand why the Sterling office will not accept the Humana plan I have when the other Midwest Dentals in the area do.
