This office has always had a revolving door of doctors but the rest of the staff used to be pretty consistent. The billing has always been awful and very delayed, however. But since mid 2021 when the doctor, the receptionist and the best hygienist left it got much worse. The new staff had no idea what's going on and now the office isn't open enough hours to accommodate regular patients. I never understand why clinics, etc are closed on fridays. That isn't convenient for the patient that's for sure. Won't go back there again. Haven't been there in well over a year and they just sent me a bill (that I did not receive before) "due upon receipt"--- what?? I don't think so!

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 have had a lot of visits to this facility in the past few months after not having been to a dentist in 4+ years. Dr. Foster is very knowledgeable, professional, personable, and keeps her patients comfort in mind while working.

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.
