Professional, friendly, explains procedures and reason to accomplish them. The dental hygienist was particularly impressive , she was knowledgeable as well as professional and made it easy to work on my teeth. (i am a wimp when it comes to going to the dentist) , however thanks to the staff all was painless and easy...

This was my first time to have dental work w/Dr. Peterson. It was just checkups before. He was great, no discomfort, and he was very efficient and cordial. His assistant was so friendly as well.

I , Jeanette, dislike going to the dentist always have with my poor teeth. But Denise ALWAYS makes my visits tolerable to want to go every 6 months... She is the best ..... Just met Dr Peterson now that Dr Markham no longer there.....we couldn't be more happier with his patient presents and checking teeth.... Great place we will continue coming back after going here for 25 years...

Everything about my visit was excellent. I did not have to wait past my appointment time and everyone was very professional. The dentist was very knowledgeable and the assistant was equally so. I have every confidence in Midwest Dental and am glad I was able to find them.

I feel so much more relaxed when I see Dr. Petersen. He and his staff are all so friendly and nice and go out of their way to make the patient comfortable. It makes for a much more pleasant experience--- one I never knew was possible.

The dentist is great! He has been very helpful in explaining how to help my children care for their teeth. He also is very kind and does not make me feel bad about needed improvements. I would definitely recommend him to parents looking for a dentist that is great with kids. The only thing that would be nice is if they had a kid size mouth piece for x-rays. Other than that, it's been a great experience.

Absolutely love all the people that work at Midwest Dental. My boys love coming to the dentist and are not afraid to have teeth pulled. So to me that is just huge, since most kids don't like going to a dentist. Everyone is just so friendly and know us all by name when we come in. Not many business know an entire family by name and greet them, or ask how they are. So my family will only go to Midwest Dental!!! Thank you

Our family of three adults appreciates the very smooth transition from being longtime patients of Dr. Markham's to being patients of Dr. Petersen's. Dr. Petersen and Denise are providing the same high-quality dental care in a professional and caring, yet friendly, manner. I was relieved when a quick follow-up to a regular dental checkup was able to be scheduled for just a few days later.

The receptionist was not the nicest person so I was a little concerned about the deaf if my visit, however I was pleasantly surprised. The assistant and the dentist were AMAZING. I will definitely be back because of the care I received.
