Just recently I changed dentists. The dentist at Midwest Dental was very pleasant and did a thorough exam, cleaned my teeth and protected them with fluoride, just what I would expect from a Hygienist and Dentist.I would recommend Midwest Dental to anyone.

I was impressed with the dentist! He was both concerned and informative on my teeth. He especially took the time to explain why he recommended what I should do and then did a through inspection of my mouth and soft tissues. He will forever be my "go to dentist" from now on.

I arrived on time for my scheduled appointment, but was quickly told I was 40 minutes early. I checked my calendar and my confirmation e-mail and found that I was on time for my appointment. The receptionist was new and wasn't sure what had happened. She spoke with dentist and they got me in right away. The dentist did the pre-exam, exam,and cleaning. Then the hygienist (who is also new) did the polishing. I was finished on time for my next appointment. I did have to wait for the receptionist to finish a personal call to answer a question for me.

Very thorough. Dr. Ray and Assistant Kelsey are very kind and considerate. And, compared to other dentists in Rochester, the price is very reasonable.

As much as anyone can love going to the Dentist, I love going to Midwest Dental. The staff is always courteous and fun. Debra does a great job of cleaning my teeth. Dr. Ray did a fabulous job of replacing a visible filling in one of my front teeth; I'm confident to smile again. Dawn is a sweet and helpful receptionist. Thank you all for a job well done!

Had a simple filling and was given the choice of weather I wanted to have Novocaine or give it a try without. Hate the Novocaine shots so opted without and everything went fine. As I said it was a simple filling but Dr. Ray even followed up that evening around 6 p.m. to see if I was doing OK. I am a person who had a bad childhood experience with dentists so I have never really liked going to the dentist. I must say I've always had good experiences with Midwest Dental Rochester.
