I have been a patient at Midwest Dental in Pewaukee for several years and I continue to be impressed with every visit. Dr. Zelko and staff are always super friendly, helpful, and go out of their way to make me feel comfortable regardless of what type of visit I am in for. I recently had some trouble with a tooth and they were able to get me in for an emergency visit and correct the issue right away. It was a nice surprise to receive a call the next day from Dr. Zelko himself checking in to make sure I was still pain free. I would highly recommend!

I am a new customer and was very impressed. Dr. Z and crew do a great job. Everything was explained and the experience and results had been very satisfactory. Even the insurance change I had from my first to second visit had gone very smooth. Highly recommended.

Love Love Love Midwest Dental! Tim the receptionist is a ray of light! The staff are positive and the dentist was honest and straight forward. They didn’t make outrageous recommendations just to make money 🤗

Very nice staff. Ready to go at appointment time. Cleaning is thorough. Dr Z. explains everything that he is about to do. Works efficiently and relatively painfree. They always listen to my concerns.

Had my first experience with Dr. Dongre and his staff. I was so impressed with the tech who did my x-rays (very efficient), the doctor, and the hygienist who cleaned my teeth, not to mention the appt set up process with Timothy - kind, efficient. Everything ran on time and everyone was friendly and good at their job. Dr. Dongre was knowledgeable and gave gave good advice. I'm very picky about service, however, I could not pick out a single thing thing that wasn't excellent. Will definitely return and recommend.

Scheduled my appointment several weeks in advance. When I arrived for my cleaning, I was told they wouldn’t be able to clean my teeth because they didn’t have my x-rays, even though they never requested them when I made the appointment and had weeks to ask me to get them sent over. Completely wasted my time and the staff was extremely unhelpful. It seemed like the hygienist was trying to get me to leave.

This is the best dentist's office I've ever been to! The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was wonderful, everyone was so positive and upbeat. The dental exam was more comprehensive than any of the ones I've had in the past. He checked for oral cancer symptoms, jaw issues, etc. Then went through everything in detail, outlined a treatment plan, and made sure I had all of the information I needed. I didn't have to wait in the waiting room at all, they led me right back. The office is clean and comfortable. I am so happy that I found this place. I do NOT like getting dental work done, but I found myself very relaxed here. I would recommend this office in a heartbeat. Thank you Katie & Dr. Zelko!

We have going here for almost 10 years years now. It was difficult with the turnover several years ago but that has settled down a bit with Dr Zelko for the last few years. Dr Zelko is patient and kind and is upfront about what needs to be done. He explains everything before he starts and as he is doing it, I like that they are never any surprises. Karrie, our hygienist, is amazing! She always goes above and beyond to make sure that it is a pleasant experience. She takes her time and is thorough but also very gentle. We just started taking our kids there, she was kind and patient with them as well. Going to the dentist isn't always fun but the doctors and staff here make it bearable. We are always greeted with a smile by the front office staff and have always been treated respectfully. I would recommend this office for anyone with anxiety or children.

Midwest dental is by far the best dental office I’ve been to—and I’ve seen many good and bad ones. At Midwest dental, I never had to wait any time at all before seeing the hygienist. The office also handled insurance before I’d even arrived, so there were no billing surprises whatsoever. I was particularly impressed with Dr. Zelko, who spent almost a full hour with me, listening to my concerns and explaining what he was doing at every step. He seemed extremely honest and knowledgeable.

I had an emergency situation. I was up all night with horrible tooth pain. They got me in at 8am and treated me immediately. My pain was gone within an hour. I'm very grateful they helped me in my time of need. -Mary Martin, Pewaukee WI

I have been going to this dental office for a few years. They are always professional and you can tell they care about their patients. I am also very happy that when I switched insurance companies that my new one accepted Midwest. I will recommend them to everyone I can.

My family has visited here for about 2-3 years. I have seen high turnover here. They have had issues with their x-ray machines. Once it took them two hours to get x-rays. They also recommended an unnecessary crown and said there was a cavity where there was none. I have changed dentists now and the cavity that they claimed using the x-ray has never materialized. Be cautious since you might be over treated here.

Had my initial examination there yesterday. Everyone was very friendly, and the dentist (Dr. Zelko) explained everything as he was doing it. I'm not a huge fan of going to dentists in general, so that was very helpful. Would recommend. :)

Great place to get your teeth cleaned. They are always friendly, the office is clean and they always seem to be right no schedule so I never have to wait very long for my appointment.

Steven Bacon

Every 6 months when I go in it appears there is a turnover in staffing. Makes me wonder if I should go somewhere else that has a team that have been together for a longer time. In addition, the company they use to validate coverage demonstrated to be less than professional. Will give them one more shot but in not happy with service will be moving to a different dentist office.

i should have knew when i called for appointment and the call "right back" took 2 hours...then i got my papers to fill out and they only where capable of putting 4 letters of my last name down. took 1 hour just to get x-rays. Dental assistant ran into x-ray arm at least 3 times. Rested it on my eyeball and against throat. gave me safety glasses and well talking shot water over my face. Shortly after shot down my neck. As had me knee high office manager comes in we will not honor the $89 coupon and will charge you 189 to shoot water at your teeth and schedule you for another appointment for the cleaning and another $89....So i got orally beaten up for an hour for $89. X-rays and no work done!

Very professional and competent dentists, hygienists and staff. Totally happy with awesome front tooth crowns, best ever replacements, look completely natural and match my other teeth for the first time in many years. They also referred me to a fantastic periodontist when needed. Whenever I have needed help with billing and insurance questions I have received prompt and competent help. Appointments available at convenient times. What's not to like?

My family loves going to Midwest Dental. We have all had a great experiences and they are so great with my kids. The kids especially love V the hygienist. Never had a bad experience there. I would recommend to anyone.

ok folks i have read the negative comments but i don't understand most of them. first if you are going to have dental work and are concerned about the cost...then ask. as for small children i can't help you there. my only concern is the turnover in personnel including dentists. oh but I think i have one now who plans to stay around for a long time. talk to your dentist get to know her and her to get to know you! i think it is important for the dentist and patient to develop a patient/dentist relationship. without that there is no trust. i have that now with my new dentist. I am happy with her. Midwest Dental is a nice place to come and relax to have my dental work. 5 stars to Dr. Jessica Grams. Thanks for the memories Doc! lol

The staff are FANTASTIC! I just had dental work done that required Novocaine. For the first time in my life, I could feel my cheek on the outside after the appt. It was still numb where she did the work, but I didn't feel like my face was drooping! I don't know how she did that. My only critique is why other dental offices can call me with a reminder to take my Amoxicillin before I come in and Midwest corporate says they can't. Come on, focus on customer service!!

I have always had a good experience with Midwest Dental! I came from a really good dentist in New Berlin to this one and my experience has been great! I have read some poor reviews and looks like most of them deal with insurance, maybe they need to be more proactive about telling folks what the true costs of procedures are, and what they might cost them. All in all I have had great experiences there and Brenda the hygienist and the new dentist Dr Grams seems great as well.

After not going to the dentist for 10 years. I went to Midwest. My wife was a patient there before I went. I enjoy the staff and have had no problems with billing or people. I would recommend this facility to everyone. They are nice, caring and very, very good at what they do.

Had a crown done in November 2013, was charged up front like all dental procedures. In May 2014, I received a bill to say adjustments have been made. Called the account specialist to find that yet another adjustment has been made and I now owe more money. After talking to my insurer, I was told that the type of crown I received was not covered so it was put under another type. I asked the Midwest Dental account specialist why this wasn't discovered in the first place and was told they don't know these things until after the payment is submitted. I find it hard to believe that a large practice doesn't know when certain procedures aren't covered by even larger insurers. To make matters worse, the tooth was super sensitive for two months after the procedure. I've had three other crowns done by three different dentists in the Middleton and Madison areas before moving to Waukesha, and have never had the issues either with the quality of service of payment that I've experienced at Midwest Dental Pewaukee. Needless to say my family is taking its business elsewhere and I would never recommend this dental practice to anyone.

They did a build-up and crown on my wife, and didn't bother to tell her the type of crown they were using was not covered under her insurance until AFTER the fact. Now they want her to pay the difference when it's their fault for not checking with a MAJOR insurance company first. Furthermore, they did such a poor job on it, the tooth continues to hurt and she has to see another dentist to do the job over again. We will never set foot in that clinic again.

I would NOT recommend this facility to anyone who wants to have children treated there. When I first started looking for a dentist, this one appealed to me because it was very close to home. They assured me they were very good with children. My grandson was 4 when I started to bring him and of course he was scared. I was able to sit with him through the cleaning and even getting cavities filled. However, they made it clear that they would prefer I sit in the waiting room. Well this last visit, I was not in the room and he started to cry, they were able to clean his teeth but not get an xray. That was all they needed, I was told he couldn't return there, I had to take him to a pediatric dentist.... It would have been nice to know, they cave so easily when a child is scared and doesn't cooperate. His Dentist was Heather and she was very nice to him, but this last time, it was someone he didn't know, they were 20 minutes late getting him in and it was close to closing time. I felt they wanted him gone so they could all go home. Very disappointed!!! Now my grandson is traumatized and will need more care going forward.

Heather the front end office manager has no people skills and no empathy and should not being in that position! She claims she is the manager, if that is not where I want to do business! I will happily pull from my families dental needs from this office because of our numerous negative experiences with her, and I have! You would think that in an environment where people are "nervous" to begin with they would put someone who was kind in the front office... NOPE not here! As for the dentists, I miss Dr Carlson, as soon as she left we haven't been as happy there. The hygienists are overall nice but the place is just not what it used to be!

The facility is really nice. My experience with them over the last year has been mixed. While some of the hygienist are very good, the office staff is pushy. They tend to recommend and schedule you for procedures that are optional. Also, it is pricey...Finally getting a after school appt for a cleaning or during lunch hour is next to impossible if you don't schedule 6 months in advance.

It looks like you’re trying to reschedule your appointment.

Please call for appointment changes.
