Great place to have anything done on your teeth. They really care that you get the best of everything you need done.

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.

Shawn and his staff are the best. My family and I have been patients for years and I can not say enough good things about the kindness, courtesy and wonderful demeanor of the whole office. It is always a pleasure when dealing with Midwest Dental.

My family has been going to Midwest Dental for about 5 years or more. And we just love them. My kids are not afraid to go to the dentist, which is a big plus to any family. And both of them just had to have 4 teeth pulled to get ready for braces. They are so very kind to everyone, and always greet us with a smile and know us all by name. They take the time to talk to you and treat you like you are of importance. I wouldn't go anywhere else and would diffently recommend them to anyone.

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.
