The staff here at Midwest dental is awesome and very friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend Dr Erika Varrhoven to anyone she is the best dentist I ever had. She replaced a crown recently and I never felt a thing when removing the old one. There have been alot of dentists that have come and gone here but when Dr Erika came they found the best.

I needed a new dentist because I moved back to the area. I choose this one because I also needed a dentist for my daughter as they see adults and children. The first hygienist I had I didn't care for. She was rude. She was very impatient with my daughter who was 6 at the time and scared. She no longer works here now. All the hygienists I've had since her I've really liked. They are friendly and personable. Dr. Erika is great! She is very lind and patient. My daughter and I both don't mind going to the dentist now every 6 months. The office staff is very helpful and friendly as well.

Dr. Erica was very professional and had done a great job on my dental needs. Very knowledgeable and thorough on explaining what I can expect on every procedure done. The entire staff, from up front in the office to the hygienist crew, makes my visits a pleasant experience. Great senses of humor at Midwest Dental 😁 Once again, my cleaning visit on 1/22/20 went extremely well, and Becky was quite patient and knowledgeable with me. She had taken her time even as it was a pretty late in the day appt. Kelly was very informational and a pleasure to talk with in regards to my dental care. Dr. Erika was a professional, as usual, and gave me an honest and well planned out treatment plan.

I absolutely love Midwest Dental in Oshkosh. The staff is always friendly and helpful, from getting checked in to explaining procedures to the actual cleanings and follow-up. I get to schedule with the same hygienist every time, so they know me and what I struggle or succeed with and can give better advice based on the rapport we've built. The cleanings are truly the most gentle I've ever experienced; it's such a stark difference from other places. They're honestly my favorite dental practice I've ever gone to. Everyone is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend them - I've already recommended them to others who love them now too!

Wouldn't go anywhere else... They're awesome with my daughter. She was pretty scared at her previous dentist, and they weren't very compassionate about it. You won't run into that problem here. ( remember, no matter where you go, they'll try and sell you the perfect smile, that's my only complaint. I don't like how quick they are to spend my money, whether i can afford it or not. But comfort is king, and that they have perfected)

The staff was very polite, professional, and knowledgeable. Becky made sure I was comfortable during my cleaning and let me know what she was doing and also gave me some great advice. Dr. Erika was very professional and showed concern for my oral hygiene.

Professionalism, concerned and friendly are terms that I would choose to describe my experience at Midwest Dental. From the time you are greeted at the reception desk through the scheduled procedure to the check-out these terms capture the services rendered. This has not changed over the years I’ve been going there. Highly recommended!!!!

I didn't even get to the appointment because of how rude the staff was. They wouldn't wait 60 seconds for me to get the information they needed and when I called back half the information they said they needed they didn't ask for. It seemed like all they cared about was getting me in so they could charge me. They don't want you to have a conversation with your dentist so you know they're right for you; as long as they can charge you you can see them.

I have been with Midwest Dental since it opened at the South Park location. I have always been happy with my care, even the lectures on brushing and flossing. I recommend. Had recent crown removal that went very well. Happy!

The receptionist is annoying. Keeps telling me what to do when she has no right to tell me what to do with my own teeth. She should at least let people make there own decision instead of making the decision. I'm going to go to a new place. I dont even like the doctor too. If they want me to go back then they need to find a new receptionist. This place makes me feel that all they want is just my money. I'm so done with this place.

My wife really disliked going to the dentist; big time dislike. Last week she had oral surgery by Dr. Erica Van Larrhoven. It was a painless experience and she was in the chair two hours. She no longer really dislikes going to the dentist. Dr. Van Larrhoven is a Great dentist!

Midwest Dental and I have been together for many years. A few dentists have come and gone, but are always replaced by another that I am very pleased with. ..Including our current one. I have had deep cleanings, crowns, and a partial done there and always very satisfied. The staff is competent , professional, yet friendly, pleasant. The building is nice, clean, well kept. I highly recommend Midwest Dental on South Park Ave in Oshkosh,WI.

The team at this office is consistently outstanding. They have convenient hours and helpful staff who are genuinely interested in their patients' lives. Dr. Erika has excellent bedside manner (with children and adults) and I've never had a hygienist I didn't like. My son and I have been patients at this practice for a number of years and plan to keep coming back because of the excellent care we receive.

We usually go to Midwest North, however the Dr had an emergency. My daughter had an emergency and got into this office. I texted her the info on one of two of dental insurances and told her to tell them to call the other office the next day. She needed a root canal and the doctor did not even call her in an antibiotic nor a pain medication. VERY VERY disappointed and angry that in an emergency that they treated a 20 year old this way. Our family WILL NEVER use them again, nor will I refer anyone I know to this office. If we can't get into Midwest North for any reason (the office was closed due to a death) then I will find a different dental office outside of Midwest to treat my family members.

It's been a couple year with Midwest Dental Oshkosh South to get dental care for my family. I am really glad that I made the right choice because they are really great at what they are doing and very friendly. They really know the best treatment that suited for us. It is a pleasure to get care from the smart team.

I've had multiple appointments at this location and every time I arrive, I'm always greeted with a smile. The woman at the front desk always addresses me by name, and knows exactly why I'm there. I'm assisted promptly and never have a long wait. The dental assistants and dental hygienists I've worked with are extremely thorough and explain things in terms I understand. They make sure I'm comfortable, which I appreciate because sometimes trips to the dentist can be not so pleasant. The Doctor herself always takes plenty of time meeting with me. I've recommended this office to several people and will continue to do so based on the experiences I continue to have there.

My initial visit...was GREAT! Nice relaxed atmosphere and friendly-courteous service. I was seen promptly and they evaluated me efficiently and professionally. Even though a cleaning had not been scheduled, they fitted me in and offered me some add-ons without being pushy. I can really feel the difference with the Sonicare high-fluoride toothpaste. Really top-notch service and demeanor...OUTSTANDING!

Midwest Dental has always done an awesome job caring for my teeth. I have had five crowns over the past couple years and the experience was always great and the crowns are perfect. I would recommend them to anyone out there. Great friendly staff that I have come to know and are almost like family. Doug Bratley

I've been going there for 7 years now and have always had excellent, friendly service. Short waits, easy to schedule appointments, flexibility when things come up, they do a good job cleaning and are not too pushy trying to sell the extra services. The only somewhat negative thing is that it seems the doctors and hygienists tend to leave every couple years. It's bad because you loose the rapport with the previous one, but at the same time the new ones always seem as good or better than the previous and it's enjoyable meeting new people.

The doctor and assistant both worked very hard to do this tough job and to keep me comfortable in the chair for almost 3 hours. They gave me a break and more numbing, which helped. The difficulty was the location of the tooth, not anything they did wrong. Very professional and considerate of my comfort. 5 stars!!!

We have been very satisfied with the dental care from Midwest Dental. The staff is very professional, kind and accommodating. Our family of 8 have all been taken care of very well. Our dental care has spanned from normal cleaning, cavities, sealants and crowns . They are very gentle with cleanings and dental work. Highly recommend.

I have recently switched to Midwest Dental but my experiences so far have been great! The staff is wonderful and helped me figure out the best plan of action that also worked with my budget. Dr Erika is very professional and gentle, I was worried about getting a cavity filled but she was so wonderful. I will not have any fears about returning!

I had filling work done done here. I cracked an existing filling in a rear molar on a popcorn seed. The dentist decided that it could be replaced with a regular filling to fix the tooth(pain) and made mention of a possible crown being necessary down the road. After we did the filling, I was still in bad pain. Then she suggested the crown, after that point. During the follow up to check out what was going on she wanted to do more X-rays and charge the insurance company again to double check the work she's already done. To me, that should be a no charge visit to check on work already completed. They got crabby when I said I don't think it's right that anyone be charged for this visit, even if it's no charge to me (just my insurance company) and they didn't do the x-rays and the exam ended right then and there saying just wait it out and get back to them if it gets worse. I dropped them from that moment and haven't returned. The filling that they did, broke off on one corner months later and I ended up needing a crown, a crown that should've been done first, not try to milk the insurance company for more money by adding unnecessary steps and wasting my time and putting me through pain in the process.
