Extremely disappointed in the new Midwest Dental policy of charging patients a $12 fee for a COVID-19 mask for their employees. Corporate lost money during the stay at home order and now they are trying to make up losses by sticking it to the customers. My entire family will be seeking dental care elsewhere.

Since Dr. Behrens retired this place is not the same. Bombarded with robo calls , emails trying to drum up customers. Have asked repeatedly they stop calling and have marked their emails as spam. Don't like new staff.

I am a new patient who had my first visit a week ago. Anne was awesome! She’s a great dental hygienist. She explained everything she was doing including the financials in detail. She Took her time and enjoyed having a conversation during the cleaning. Job well done!

It's been a couple of years since I've visited the dentist, and I was a little worried about how it would go; however, the person who did my teeth was named Anne and she was very friendly and gentle. She told me what she was doing the whole time, and I felt comfortable which is what I search for in a dental provider. I was really pleased with Midwest, and I'll surely be back in six months.

It was a sunny crisp day when arriving at their office, where I was warmly greeted by the office manager, she worked happily almost 60 minutes with all required paperwork and computer files and setup appointment for me. Followups worked well, files sent immediately and hot apple cider to drink while processing ran its course.

The office staff are friendly, helpful, and efficient. Dr. Behrens is very knowledgeable and takes your needs and choices into consideration. I highly recommend this dental office because of the staff, dentist and quality work.

I have been treated by both Dr. Behrens and Dr. Folchert and have been very pleased with my appointments. They seem very thorough and knowledgeable. My previous dentist was quite expensive and Midwest Dental is in my insurance network and seems more reasonable in their pricing. The office staff are very friendly and helpful in filing the insurance claims. I would recommend Midwest Dental to anyone looking for quality, affordable dental care.

Great first experience. Very friendly front staff I felt comfortable bringing my toddler in. They even squeezed in my toddler to look at her tooth I was concerned about... doing that they gained a whole family of customers! I also like they give you an estimate BEFORE they do the dental work and unlike other places they didn’t “refer” me out to someone else when there is more work to do than just a cleaning. Very pleased. Thank you!!

Yesterday was my first visit (there will be many more to come). I haven't seen a dentist in many years for a variety of reasons, but found that Ashley and Dr. Folchert made me feel very comfortable. In fact, when Ashley set up the appointment for a deep cleaning, she scheduled me with a hygienist that is known for a gentle, but thorough touch because Ashley recognized my anxiety. Dr. Folchert was very straight forward with options moving forward for implants, dentures, partials or a mix of implants and a partial. He wanted me to make an informed decision and provided me with lots of information and will set up a consult with an expert in implants. Debbie provided me with a full list of my dental plan benefits, which helped to relieve my anxiety about costs. All in all, I am pleased with the staff and their level of caring and expertise.

I'm a student at UW- Stevens Point. I went there for a routine cleaning, they took xrays of mouth, and highly recommended that I schedule an appointment to get my wisdom teeth pulled. In my humble opinion, the xrays did not look bad- they were coming in at a slight angle. I figured with time they would straighten out, and they did! I now have all 4 wisdom teeth and they feel great, my teeth are not cramped at all. I wouldn't be surprised if they recommend every patient get their wisdom teeth taken out. Do not trust this dentist, they just want your money! Be very weary of scams when you go there, take everything they say with a grain of salt

I had an emergency and Dr. Mikelish went The extra mile to fit me into his busy schedule before I left for a family wedding out of state. Great doctor and a great company that gives back to our community.

Do not go here- I had a terrible experience with them refusing to get to the bottom of what ended up being a cracked tooth- they sent me home when I was experiencing terrible pain. I went to the ER and several doctors that were unnecessary as a result, as well as missing 4 days of work...Needless to say, my family and I will no longer be clients

I had two fillings by Dr. Behrens and a cleaning done at this office today, following my first check-up last week with Dr. Behrens. He is easily the best dentist I have ever had. I had to wait for my first appointment as he was behind schedule, but I learned today that this is because he takes a lot of time with each patient, which I am more than happy to be delayed for. He is genuine about his philosophy of educating the patient and making sure you are comfortable. He was never in a hurry to get out of the room to move on to the next person, and would talk you through everything he was doing in a helpful tone. It's rare to meet a Doctor who genuinely seems happy to be doing the work that they do, so I will be recommending him every chance that I get.
