I loved how quick and efficient the service was. I felt like at times the dentist and assistant were "messy," water splashed in my face from the tool several times.

I came in off the street as a new patient and was immediately impressed by the staff of Midwest Dental in Apple Valley, MN. I was able to be seen that same day and had 3 fillings completed (quite painless I may add) and was completely satisfied with the level of care received from Lezlie Nelson D.D.S. and her staff. All procedures and billing detail were discussed in detail. I am VERY satisfied with the care received at Midwest Dental and will recommend them to anybody looking for good dental care

I had my first visit with Midwest Dental in Apple Valley. I was greeted and taken care of promptly. The staff is really nice. I really like the dental hygienist and the dentist, Dr. Leslie. I'm glad I switched dentist office.

I don't remember the last time a dentists actually cleaned my teeth...may be back in the 90s! Nice people, and small cozy place. Although this offie is part of a large corporation, it had a look and feel of a mom and pop kinda shop. If that's what they intended, they succeeded. Only drawback, there is an OrangeTheory place next door, and you can hear everything (everything muffled through walls) while sitting on the dentist chair. A bit annoying.

Very nice office. I would have appreciated knowing the office was closed for lunch. I didn't see this posted anywhere. I came early and if I had known I would have been there closer to the time of the appointment. I paid my bill and had to ask if this included the 10% discount. They said no so they had to reconfigure the bill so I had to write another check. Why don't the say something about the discount instead of my having to say something. I found this disturbing. I liked the hygienist and the Dr. Otherwise things were fine.

New to Midwest, I hate going to the Dentist. Office is low keyed and sparkling clean and soft in tone. When your scared these are important things. No one was going to make me more comfortable except, your done. The hygienist was great, fast and handled everything efficiently and simply got her job done, which I appreciated. The Dr was kind and considerate and answered my questions. By the way, I had no problem making a return visit. Don't avoid, it is a good place to be even when you don't want to go. (Smile it only lasts a short time.)
