I was absolutely thrilled with my new white filling that I got yesterday! Last Friday, a silver filling fell out of one of my teeth. So I called Midwest Dental and made an appointment for the following Monday which was yesterday. I had expected the dentist to just file down the sharp edges but intead, he was able to put in a new filling! I was very pleased with the entire procedure and I commend Dr. Porath on his dental abilities! He has a very good assistant too. But from the time I made my phone cal

This was a cleaning for my child. Loved that Dr Porath explained in detail to my son what he was going to be doing to my son. Very much like that the dental hygienist reviews what we are going to be doing for that appt before they start and make sure the parent knows and agrees and signs for it! Do wish they would have more extended hours at least a few nights of the week. They are booked out so far have to schedule months in advance and sometimes we don't know that far out what works with our schedule. Wo
