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.
Staff is courteous, thoughtful. Cleaning was thorough and other concerns like gum disease and bone structure were addressed. Everyone remembers who I am and they attempt to do as much as possible to make my visit as hard as walking in and out.
One of the most professional and welcoming businesses I've ever been to. Cherith did a great job on my hair. She was very conscientious of what I wanted done and extremely knowledgeable about cuts and colors. The entire staff was friendly and inviting. I've tried out several hair salons in Nashville and this is the one I'll go back to. Highly recommend!
