Tiffany was an outstanding hygienist. She was pleasant, fast and efficient, and my teeth looked wonderful when she was done. It was also apparent through her numerous sensitivities that she has lots of experience to enhance the professionalism of her work. She was very sensitive in the placement of a pillow to ameliorate the arthritis in my lumbar spine and in my neck. I was very comfortable throughout my visit. I cannot recommend her more highly.

I called the same day, got in to see Dr. Ludwig, went home with a temporary tooth until a week or two later when I had my permanent tooth.

I immediately called Dr. Ludwig's office, Midwest Dental, and they got me in that same day. Everybody was so compassionate and caring. Dr. Ludwig examined my tooth and determined he could build it back up with a temporary tooth until I can get a crown put on it. He did such an excellent job and matched the color so well that I had to ask him

Most people state they feel dental care is too expensive and let their dental care slip, however I feel you certainly get what you pay for. Midwest Dental, in my opinion, puts your dental and health care first.

The hygienist did an outstanding job both in cleaning my teeth and in all the extra care that goes into these overall care updates. She was very particular and detailed, for two examples among many others, in going after each remaining spot of stain left from my days of eating raspberries and blueberries (which ended 6 months ago upon her recommendation) and in flossing each tooth both horizontally and vertically. These, and all the other details, are real plusses in her repertoire. I highly recommend her.
