Why She Was Nominated

For her innovative, empathic all-woman practice, acclaimed for putting patients and staff at ease.

Inspiration

“It was an accident, really,” Dr. Bass says. “Near the end of undergrad, I fell on my face exiting a boat, breaking my left central and lateral incisors. My ensuing dental visits left me feeling that I could give patients a better experience. It also made me realize how much the appearance of your teeth makes you feel about yourself.”

Practice Philosophy

“If you put your patients’ comfort and well-being first, everything else will fall into place.”

Exciting New Trend

Materials. “Beautiful ceramics, flexible partials, implants — we have so many options in our tool kits.”
