Very Professional staff , kept me informed of each procedure, made feel at ease ( as I usually am very nervous about the dentist ). All were friendly , not only understanding my nervousness, and knew how to assist me in feeling relaxed. I would highly recommend this dentist ( and suggest the staff get a raise)(lol). ,

Have gone to Dr. Petersen for over a decade. Staff has always been friendly and professional, and treatment options explained. They're also very good about fitting in emergency appointments.

Halley is the BEST, and if she is not available please reschedule me to when she in. I've had others but non as good as she. I tell others I really don't mins going to the dentist, the only part that hurts is writing the check. Thank you and I do like the actual dentist also. Kindly Sandy Cunningham

Denise does a good job in cleaning my teeth. She is kind and professional. Dr. Petersen took time to explain what may have to be done at my next appointment. I appreciate him saying what he would do if he were the one in the chair. Thank you both.

I actually don't mind going to the dentist now! I didn't go to the dentist for 13 years at one point in my life because they would hurt me and I felt awful when I left. Going to Midwest Dental has changed that for me! Everyone in the office is always so friendly and they will work hard to accommodate your schedule. I would recommend them to all my friends and family!
