I had my yearly free cleaning (Humana) And the staff is more than helpful with my concerns with my insurance coverage and what they pay and giving me a estimate on the work for future visits.

I enjoy how genuinely friendly the staff is. And i loved how my dental technician (I am horrible at remembering names) but she wouldnt try to have a conversation while there were tools in my mouth. I LOVED that.

Absolutely thrilled with my experience. Such nice staff. Very gentle. After only one cleaning my teeth look 100% better. I definitely found my dentist home.

Very professional and personal care given. I like the fact they tell you up front how much the procedure will cost and give you options. They also take CareCredit.

I switched to Midwest Dental in Feb 2018 and I am very happy with the care and cost there. Lynn is the best! She is friendly and does a great job cleaning my teeth and providing feedback. Dr. Porath is super nice too!

The dentist and his assistant took the time to explain each and every step they took to fill my son's cavity. They were great in helping him to stay calm.

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

Professional, courteous staff. They are efficient (sometimes run a little late), but explain and outline costs clearly. For someone who dreads the dentist, I appreciate their knowledge and professionalism.

Love this practice. Helpful and friendly. Never am I lectured, but instead encouraged to maintain my dental heath. Everyone is kind and intelligent. I also love that I am not constantly "upsold" on procedures I don't need like you are at other options in town.

Had a chipped tooth. Dr Porath was very thorough in explaining my options and was also able to inform me of what my Insurance would cover immediately. The staff is always friendly. I have been a patient for over 10 years and have no intentions of leaving.

At Midwest Dental, when leaving their office my teeth feel so good and clean. The service is very friendly, gentle and professional. My hygienist, Karri (sp?) does a thural job with my teeth and is very down to earth, yet professional. We have been with Midwest Dental since we move to Faribault 6-7 years ago! Thank you Midwest Dental of Faribault!

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.
