When you arrive to your appointment you will be greeted by one of our 12SDS team members.

We will spend time discussing smile concerns, desires, and goals. We believe our first step in caring for patients is to listen. We’ll begin with each guest by listening to their plans, goals and needs in order to give the most personalized care possible.

Receive Care from a First Class Hygienist

This will include oral photography for excellent treatment planning and records, digital radiographs, microscope slide, and a professional cleaning.

Tour of the Mouth in Images

Using the photographs and X-rays, we will discuss four areas: Esthetics, Function, Structure, and Biology of the teeth and mouth. This is important to provide an understanding of your oral health and a framework for desired treatment.

Treatment Planning

After the tour, Dr. Baese and our guest will work together to create a plan that best fits your needs and desires.
