To Our Valued Patients,

As this newest challenge continues to unfold with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we wanted to give you an update. First, we are currently maintaining our regular schedule. As of now, the Arizona Department of Health Services is not recommending closure or modification. We will continue to closely monitor information from the CDC and AZDHS and follow their recommendations. We will keep you up to date on any changes we may have to make via emails, our website, and social media.

Second, we would like to give you some insight into our practices to keep our team and patient family safe and comfortable. Dentistry is uniquely positioned to protect our team and patients. On a daily basis, we practice ‘Universal Precautions.’ This means we ALWAYS assume that every patient may be carrying a contagious, dangerous disease and we follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, including Hepatitis, Tuberculosis, HIV, AND COVID-19 (Coronavirus). This has been standard of care and regulated by the Centers for Disease Control since the 1980s with the AIDS

These measures include:
1. Strict hand hygiene protocols.
2. Use of single use disposable protective equipment and barriers.
3. Thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit.
4. Disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments. Routine monitoring of sterilization verification.
5. Continual education on infection control techniques.

In addition to these mandated measures, we have also implemented:
1. Disinfection of common area surfaces every 30 minutes.
2. Availability of hand sanitizer in common areas.
3. Screening everyone who enters based on CDC recommendations.
4. Pre-procedural mouth rinse.

We are happy to address any concerns you may have. We will continue to care for our patient family during this time following all best practices and will monitor CDC guidelines for any new recommendations.

Thank you for being a part of our family. Thank you for allowing us to care for you and your family. Please know we are here to support you and help you in any way that we can.

In good health,

Do You Need to Brush Better? If You See These Signs, The Answer Is Yes!

Posted on 1/10/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Do You Need to Brush Better? If You See These Signs, The Answer Is Yes!Everyone knows how to brush their teeth – it's so simple, a child could do it, right? You add a pea-sized dollop of toothpaste to your brush and go at your teeth for two minutes and you're done. Easy peasy!

But did you know that you might be brushing your teeth the wrong way? These three signs are a good hint that you're not brushing your teeth quite as well as you may think.

Three Red Flags You're Not Brushing Correctly

You know to use a soft-bristled brush, and you know to brush at a 45-degree angle, but could you be doing better with your tooth brushing regimen?

If you suffer from any of these problems, you just might need to step up your tooth-brushing game!

•  You have halitosis. Halitosis is dentist-speak for bad breath and if you have it, you may not even know it. If a well-meaning peer tips you off, then you may need to look at your tooth brushing habit. You may have food trapped between your teeth, gum disease, or plaque buildup.
•  You have tooth decay. Having cavities is a sure sign you're not properly brushing your teeth. Take a hard look at your diet and take extra care to get those teeth clean to prevent unwanted caries.
•  Your gums are bleeding. This is a huge red flag! Bleeding gums are an early sign of gingivitis, a disease that causes redness, swelling, and bleeding. If not treated, it could lead to periodontal disease and tooth loss.

Develop Good Dental Habits

If you're struggling with cavities or smelly breath, it could cause you embarrassment or discomfort. Over time, you may become at risk for losing your teeth.

Be sure to use a soft bristled brush with rounded tips, a fluoride-based toothpaste, and brush for two minutes at a 45-degree angle. And if you need a quick refresher on how to brush, give our office a call and our professional staff can show you how to properly maintain your smile!
