The front desk people are friendly and know what they're doing. I have had only good experiences at Midwest Dental, and I'll be back. (I have more appointments!)

It was my first visit. My hygienist was wonderful. Unfortunately the dentist was rather a jerk to me. He was okay with my handicapped daughter. So 5 stars for the hygienist 1 star for the dentist

At Midwest Dental, when leaving their office my teeth feel so good and clean. The service is very friendly, gentle and professional.

Appointments were easily made, without waiting 6 weeks to get in. Appointment times were as scheduled. Under 5 minutes in waiting room. Gave me an estimate up front and kept to it with no surprises. Very professional and would recommend. That is saying a lot as I usually hate the dentist.
