OKC, OK |
I've been a patient of Dr Bass' for nearly 20 years. He is a wonderful and caring dentist. His office staff is very nice. I have recommended him to friends, family and coworkers whenever asked for a dentist referral.
in Oklahoma City, OK |
Dr. Bass has been my dentist for at least 20 years.
in Cashion, OK |
Dr. Bass made bogus evaluations on my teeth. He treated me extremely rudely and said I needed a root canal and other crowns in my mouth treated, which I found out later by another dentist it did not need to be done. He was rude and unprofessional when I chose not to have the root canal. Also billings seem to pop up months after you have paid everything. I would not recommend his office to anyone and give him no stars.
