Dr Le is fantastic! I have stuck with this dentist office even though there seems to be a revolving door of dentists in there for the past 3 or 4 years (location is just too convenient). Since he came aboard it has been a change and how I've been treated. He actually has had conversations with me about a dental care plan. It isn't simply go in and he'll fill a cavity or they'll just clean your teeth like you're on an assembly line.. They let you know what they recommend and how to take care of problems before they get bigger. I recently had some old fillings replaced. It went exactly as he said it would and with no complications. The techs that do the teeth cleaning are outstanding. I highly recommend this place.

I'm new to the Twin Cities and was looking for my new dental home. I thought I had found that until this morning when I showed up for my appointment. I was informed that since I didn't 'confirm' my appointment, they just went ahead and gave it to someone else. WHAT???? That is extremely tacky and unprofessional. I make appointments and keep them, I don't accommodate requests to confirm. I confirm when the appointment is made. Regardless, they had the nerve to ask me if I wanted to reschedule. I'll be looking for a different dental home. Don't go here, they are the trailer park of dental offices. SMH....

I’ve stuck with this location although the dentist keeps changing each visit for the past 3 years. I finally went in for my latest cleaning and the front desk manager was rude. Plenty of more professional spots nearby to put up with their disorganization.

I had two recent great experiences. First was regular checkup with xrays and the appointment was on time and the hygienist was efficient and informative during the appointment. She explained what she was doing and at the end had a couple of recommendations for me. Well within the time I had set aside. The second appointment was to replace two fillings and again the appointment started on time, the work on replacing the fillings was challenging given their age yet all work was done expertly. I would have no doubts in recommending Midwest Dental and their staff to friends and work colleagues.

I received services for about 3 years from this place and never had the same dentist because they kept quitting or going to different locations. None of them were particularly good dentists in my opinion either. The last time I went, they said I had multiple bad cavities even though I had zero pain. I was naive and went through with it anyway and paid for the services. Today I received a new bill for over $1,000 (with math that doesn’t add up to the total balance number). Haven’t had an appointment there since June. There are plenty of other good dentists in this area. Go somewhere else.

Visited in February. I’ve never had a cavity in my life. They informed me I had five. Thank GOD I had the sense to get a second opinion-the other dentist said I had nothing to worry about, no cavities at appointment six months later. The kicker? Midwest Dental now had the gall to send me an un-itemized bill for nearly $300 nine months later. Very classy. Stay away from this scammy dentist.

I’ve never had a cavity before. They convinced me to fill two tiny cavities that I had no idea I had, caused me no pain. Now I can’t eat on one side of my mouth because of pain from one of the fillings 3 months later. I moved out of state and was told they won’t cover work that needs to be done to fix the filling. Also their computer system didn’t work 3 months ago, and apparently doesn’t work now either. I wasn’t even able to get the number to their corporate office because the computer system still doesn’t work. Never going here again. Would not recommend.

Just went back for a routine teeth cleaning and they had a new dentist (Dr. Le). He spotted a tiny cavity and a filling that needed repair in no time. He looked at the previous x-rays and they showed up on there too so the previous dentist just missed these issues outright. He took a mirror so I could see the issues myself. He was very professional about it and I was extremely impressed. We had everything fixed the next day and I'm good to go.

Had a cleaning done here in June, they told me it would be $15 the rest is covered by my insurance. 4 months later they send me a bill for a little over $100. I have heard of this happening here before but since it was close to home and the rest of the reviews were good I thought I would give it a try. Big mistake! Stay away from this place!!!

$89 new patient special. Included exams, X-Rays, a cleaning and an electric tooth brush. The staff was very professional and friendly. They also open early enough where I didn’t have to take PTO for an appointment. Would recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist in the area.

I am rather particular with dentists and after finding an awesome dentist that I loved going to, I had made a career change and started work with a new Employer. Unfortunately my dentist was not within the dental network. I had an urgent dental need and had to find a new dentist. I came across St. Louis Park Metro Dental and after reading the reviews, seeing how close it was to my home, I decided to go ahead and make an appointment. I was rather apprehensive at first but after a couple of minutes speaking with the receptionist, I felt much more at ease. Once I was actually in the chair with jaw wide open and having the work done (Root Canal), I was so comfortable and relaxed that I almost fell asleep......twice! I was only given Novocain, and cannot express how gentle and caring they were while doing the work. Once the Novocain wore off, and my mouth returned to normal, it was as if I never had an issue at all. I cannot thank them enough for getting me in as soon as the did and for the fantastic work they did. I have definitely found my new dentist and will absolutely recommend them to anyone who needs a dentist!

Service is excellent but you end up paying huge bill. Initially i was told my insurance company will take care of all the cleaning bill now they lied and made me to pay 199$. Be aware of this. Never in my life will go or recommend this clinic. Im so sorry.

I went for my first appointment the other day and was very impressed. The employees were friendly. My gumline is a puffy inflamed disaster, and sensitive. The woman working on my teeth was kind enough to use a numbing gel before cleaning. This place is great!

Dr. Holly Hill is the best dentist I have every visited! Every time I go there the staff is very friendly and courteous. I never write reviews, but I felt like I had to after my experience with this clinic. Like most people, I don't like going to the dentists. However the staff is so nice, and the hygienist and Dr. Hill were so gentle! It is a care free experience. Guarantee once you go one time, you will keep coming back! They are that good! Show less

Overall not happy with my experience. I was questioning what work was being done and they just kept telling me that insurance would cover it. Just because my insurance will cover it does not mean that I do not have a right to know what work is being completed. Left feeling takin advantage of. Also received a bill in the mail for $90 so apparently insurance did not cover everything like I was expecting. I have been a long time Midwest Dental patient at another location with a much better experience. I will not be returning to any Midwest Dental.

I went for a routine dental cleaning. This place was great! The front staff were friendly, the bathrooms were clean, the wait to get in was short, the dental cleaning was the most thorough I have ever had, the dentist (Dr. McKinley) was personable. I felt very comfortable and will be back for sure!

I would honestly and earnestly recommend Midwest Dental in St. Louis Park to family and friends. It's that simple. They're professional, genuine and warmly welcome you. Dr. Ben McKinley is top notch and so are his assistants.

My children love the dentist after they left their appointment! My son needed a special brace for his tooth so they were so nice to send for it when about 9 different dentists told me no. This is my first stop for clean teeth..

I had a cleaning earlier this week (after not going to the dentist for a few years) and Jodi was fantastic. Both Jodi and Dr. McKinley were great at explaining what was happening and asking if I had any questions throughout. I was able to be scheduled for one of those coveted early morning appointments two days later for two fillings and Jennifer and Dr. McKinley were excellent - minimal pain, they made sure I was at ease, and they were just in great spirits which is really refreshing.

I had a good experience yesterday at Midwest Dental. Had a small cavity that needed to be filled. The good doctor said he thought it could be done without any numbing and he was right. So I was able to go about my business for the rest of the day without waiting for the novacain to wear off.

Even after I moved across town, I keep coming here because my experience is wonderful every time! They always run on time, are very kind and thorough, and take a lot of care in keeping me informed every step of the way. They take the time to answer my questions and give me a clear sense of the health of my teeth. I also appreciate the way I get text and email appointment reminders -- so convenient! Highly recommend!!

If I could give one star I WOULD. Dr. Ruby was so rude to me that i am coming up on my 6m cleaning and am looking for other places to go. She was hurting me to the point I was trying to pull away and couldn't, She told me "it wouldn't hurt if you just stopped moving" I wasn't moving just to move. I was moving due to being in pain! If you have to go here make sure you dont get this WITCH!!
