I had A very thorough dental exam by Dr. J and an excellent cleaning and x-rays by Kim. Dr. J took time to explain to me about trouble spots and how to prevent further damage. All in all, I am very satisfied with my experience at Midwest Dental.

I love this place. Everyone is very friendly and the dentist is very conscious of my comfort during any procedure I am going through. I plan on staying at Midwest for all my dental needs! It's a great place! I feel very comfortable there and a very comfortable atmosphere too.

I have been very happy with my care from Dr. J. However, since the discount plan is being discontinued we will probably have to find dental care else where. We are seniors with no dental care insurance because it is too expensive.

I had to have a lot of dental work done at Midwest Dental. Dr. Ramakrishnan and his staff were very friendly. Their hours really worked with my busy work schedule. Being able to come in on a Saturday or a Monday evening made it work for me.

I appreciated getting in right away. Impressed with the results. Did not care for getting hit in the left shoulder numerous times with techs round chair. I think the pace should be slowed down a bit. To much speed can create mistakes, I saw a lot of it when I worked at Regions Hospital in St. Paul for twelve and half years. I look forward to getting the other front teeth fixed next. Will have to write down my schedule to plan next visits. Thank-you.

I have always been apprehensive when it comes to dental work. This place is clean, neat, professional and calms those feelings and gets my dental work done with very little pain.

That Sarah is top notch. She sure knows what she's doing! I wouldn't trust any other hygienist with my teeth! Just a class act. I felt that Dr. Ramakrishnan took careful care in examining my teeth as well.
