Midwest Dental in Atlantic has a friendly atmosphere. Beginning with the receptionist who was very kind and helped me save money with the essential smile plan. Laura is very personable, kind, and knowledgeable. Shawn is awesome at what he does, makes the experience as painless as possible and attentive to patients needs! I would highly recommend booking your next dental appointment with these people at this facility!!!?

I have seen Dr. Peterson for many years now and I always enjoy my appointment. He takes pride in his work and wants you to have a pleasant experience. I love catching up with him and Heidi. The office staff is always friendly and efficient. Just FYI I started seeing him around 50 because of my fear of dentists, don't wait like I did

— Thank you for the kind words, Julie. I'm going to share with the whole team. We love hearing from our happy customers!

Dentist excellent, dental hygienist wonderful….billing department LACKING! Received bill from over two years ago and was told “It will be up to you to contact insurance, we only do that as a courtesy.” Didn’t try to help just wanted to prove where they needed more money on a closed bill. Typical kindness around Atlantic businesses, she assured me I could make payments on their mistake in filing though. Thanks always appreciate the extra effort.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Petersen and staff and could not be happier. Because of the extensive x-rays (which were no more difficult than any I have had previously) and thorough checking of my gums, Dr. Petersen was able to diagnose and present a solution to a problem I have had for over a year. My previous dentist worked on this issue three times and could not find an answer. All of the staff were friendly, courteous and willing to rise above average in their treatment of me. I recommend this office completely. I did read the previous bad review and, seriously, cannot imagine these same people as being rude and below par in their duties. Please give this office a try and I think you will be as pleased as I am.

Such a great staff. Super good with kids, took 3 year old for first teeth cleaning fearing the worst...but Denise was outstanding! Had no trouble getting my lil trouble maker to allow her to clean teeth. Such patience she had! Showed him everything, let him touch and feel it, explained things to him so he could understand!!! Best dentist office there is!!!

When my longtime dentist retired, the remaining dentists in his office decided to not take our insurance. We looked for an alternative and then the flyer came in the mail. We saw Dr. Daniels and instantly connected to this compassionate and capable doctor. He has gone above and beyond to help me overcome my anxiety and make the best decisions for my dental health. I trust him. He has helped so much and is very gentle. I hope he stays around for a long, long time.

Our family has been long time patients of Dr. Markham, clear back to when he started his practice in Anita. We moved away from the area for several years, and I was disappointed to find that I didn't get the quality of care and service that Dr. Markham's office has. The dental staff is extremely professional and thorough; every small comment is met with concern.

Absolutely phenomenal experience from Cyndi at check in to Tamie and Dr Markham and the hygeniest Hayley it was a wonderful experience! I would recommend all of them to everyone, it was and always has been a great experience. Doc Markham, even though he can't go left, is second to none a true one of a kind gentleman!

Susan Osvald

Sep 18, 2015

We have been patients of Dr. Markham since he first opened his Atlantic office. We've never had a bad experience. The office is sparkly clean, easy to get to, and has plenty of parking. The staff is friendly and efficient. We have twice a year check-ups scheduled and rarely wait more than a few minutes beyond our appointment time. On the rare occasions when we've had minor dental emergencies we've been able to be seen by Dr. Markham right away--we know he has come in early or stayed late to be sure we were taken care of. Denise is a wonderful hygienist. Dr. M. is an awesome dentist and one of the most gentlemanly and genuinely friendly professionals you will ever meet.

Dr. Petersen and his whole staff are all great people. They are very understanding and patient. I have never been to a dentist that was so gentle! I could not feel a thing which was great!!! They are also very nice and kind to everyone! My husband and 9 year old daughter also love going to them. Best Dentist by far!!!!!!

Dr. Shawn Petersen and his team are exceptional. My first routine exam was incredibly detailed and thorough, and when I needed a root canal, I was pleasantly surprised - absolutely no pain (except the pin-prick Novocaine shot), and recovery was smooth. I have never been in such professional, friendly, and competent hands.

I have seen Dr. Peterson for many years now and I always enjoy my appointment. He takes pride in his work and wants you to have a pleasant experience. I love catching up with him and Heidi. The office staff is always friendly and efficient. Just FYI I started seeing him around 50 because of my fear of dentists, don't wait like I did

— Thank you for the kind words, Julie. I'm going to share with the whole team. We love hearing from our happy customers!

Dentist excellent, dental hygienist wonderful….billing department LACKING! Received bill from over two years ago and was told “It will be up to you to contact insurance, we only do that as a courtesy.” Didn’t try to help just wanted to prove where they needed more money on a closed bill. Typical kindness around Atlantic businesses, she assured me I could make payments on their mistake in filing though. Thanks always appreciate the extra effort.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Petersen and staff and could not be happier. Because of the extensive x-rays (which were no more difficult than any I have had previously) and thorough checking of my gums, Dr. Petersen was able to diagnose and present a solution to a problem I have had for over a year. My previous dentist worked on this issue three times and could not find an answer. All of the staff were friendly, courteous and willing to rise above average in their treatment of me. I recommend this office completely. I did read the previous bad review and, seriously, cannot imagine these same people as being rude and below par in their duties. Please give this office a try and I think you will be as pleased as I am.

My family and I have been going to Dr. Petersen for as long as I can remember, we have always been well taken care of! From emergency visits to routine check ups we’ve experienced them all and always been satisfied!

My first appointment with Dr Gavino went very well. He was engaging, knowledgeable, and skilled. He identified some concerns in his examination and we worked together to develop a care plan. I feel I made the right choice in choosing Dr Gavino as my dentist.

Such a great staff. Super good with kids, took 3 year old for first teeth cleaning fearing the worst...but Denise was outstanding! Had no trouble getting my lil trouble maker to allow her to clean teeth. Such patience she had! Showed him everything, let him touch and feel it, explained things to him so he could understand!!! Best dentist office there is!!!

When my longtime dentist retired, the remaining dentists in his office decided to not take our insurance. We looked for an alternative and then the flyer came in the mail. We saw Dr. Daniels and instantly connected to this compassionate and capable doctor. He has gone above and beyond to help me overcome my anxiety and make the best decisions for my dental health. I trust him. He has helped so much and is very gentle. I hope he stays around for a long, long time.

Our family has been long time patients of Dr. Markham, clear back to when he started his practice in Anita. We moved away from the area for several years, and I was disappointed to find that I didn't get the quality of care and service that Dr. Markham's office has. The dental staff is extremely professional and thorough; every small comment is met with concern.

Absolutely phenomenal experience from Cyndi at check in to Tamie and Dr Markham and the hygeniest Hayley it was a wonderful experience! I would recommend all of them to everyone, it was and always has been a great experience. Doc Markham, even though he can't go left, is second to none a true one of a kind gentleman!

We have been patients of Dr. Markham since he first opened his Atlantic office. We've never had a bad experience. The office is sparkly clean, easy to get to, and has plenty of parking. The staff is friendly and efficient. We have twice a year check-ups scheduled and rarely wait more than a few minutes beyond our appointment time. On the rare occasions when we've had minor dental emergencies we've been able to be seen by Dr. Markham right away--we know he has come in early or stayed late to be sure we were taken care of. Denise is a wonderful hygienist. Dr. M. is an awesome dentist and one of the most gentlemanly and genuinely friendly professionals you will ever meet.

Dr. Petersen and his whole staff are all great people. They are very understanding and patient. I have never been to a dentist that was so gentle! I could not feel a thing which was great!!! They are also very nice and kind to everyone! My husband and 9 year old daughter also love going to them. Best Dentist by far!!!!!!

Dr. Shawn Petersen and his team are exceptional. My first routine exam was incredibly detailed and thorough, and when I needed a root canal, I was pleasantly surprised - absolutely no pain (except the pin-prick Novocaine shot), and recovery was smooth. I have never been in such professional, friendly, and competent hands.
