Everyone at 12 South Dental is fabulous. So friendly yet so professional! I love the relaxing paraffin wax hand treatment they offer when you go in for a cleaning. They just go the extra mile to make a trip to the dentist an enjoyable experience.
I always feel so welcome at 12 South Dental Studio. The staff is so friendly and inviting. Dr. Baese does incredible work. He never pushes anything on his patients always asks for your input. I recommend 12 S dental studio to all of my friends.
I went into my appt a little unsure of what kind of coloring I needed since it was one of the first times I had had it done. I was floored when I checked out to find out how much it was costing me. I felt a little taken advantage of and would have appreciated a breakdown at the beginning so that I would know my options. A $30 gloss? I had no idea that was an additional charge and was not given the option. $80 for a base color that I didn't really even want? Maybe it's my fault for not asking up front, but I would think that's what the professionals are there for.
