To Our Valued Patients at Surprise Smiles,

Welcome! We are open, looking forward to seeing returning patients, accepting new patients, and operating under normal business hours! The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDS) is still not recommending any type of closures or modification in hours. We will continue to monitor information coming from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and AZDHS and keep you apprised of any changes or updates. We will stay on top of this information and bring it to you as soon as possible through our website, email, and social media.

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, our dentists and dental team want to assure you that we are continuing to do our best to make sure it a priority that we are following the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC, specifically as they relate to the dental industry. We value keeping our patients and staff members safe and comfortable.

As part of our daily standard health and safety protocols, our office follows ‘Universal Precautions’ in order to protect our patients and our staff. These are precautions we have always taken, and are not new. By taking ‘universal precautions’ means we always assume that anyone could potentially be carrying a contagious and dangerous disease. We therefore follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, be it COVID-19 (Coronavirus), hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, or any other disease. This has been a standard of care we follow, per the CDC, in regard to blood borne pathogens.

These measures include:
•  strict hand washing protocols
•  use of (single use) disposable protective equipment and barriers
•  thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit
•  disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments and routine monitoring of sterilization verification
•  continued education on infection control

•  disinfecting common surface areas every 30 minutes
•  providing hand sanitizer in common areas
•  screening everyone who enters our offices based on CDC recommendations
•  offering preprocedural mouth rinse

As state and national health and safety regulations change and evolve during these times, Surprise Smiles is dedicated to monitoring and evaluating our dental practice and office space for any potential risks as we serve our patients and community. We strive to maintain an approach to our dentistry services that is both safe and beneficial to everyone we serve.

We strive to provide a safe, healthy, comfortable, and relaxed environment for everyone that comes into our dental office. We follow the American Dental Association’s Update to Office Procedures During COVID-19 in regard to safe office procedures, workplace hazards, and making decisions for best office practices. We stay informed on recent information given to dentists in this regard, as well as keeping up to date with any changes recommended by the CDC.

Please let us know if you have any questions in regard to our health and safety protocols here at Surprise Smiles. We recognize that it can be challenging during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. We all want to get back to our normal lives, and we will be able to do so, in a safe, wise, and healthy manner. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have in regard to our dental practice health and safety protocols, cleaning, and disinfecting procedures we follow.

Thank you for continuing to be a valued patient here at Bradshaw Family Dental. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your dental needs through the various services we provide for you, from preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants and more!

Where Sugar Sensitivity To Your Teeth Could Come From


Posted on 7/10/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Where Sugar Sensitivity To Your Teeth Could Come FromThere are many different reasons for a person to suffer from tooth sensitivity. It is a sign of a few different problems with your teeth. If the cause of your sensitive teeth is a sugar sensitivity, you may think you know what caused it.

You picture the days of your youth gobbling down all the candy you can get your hands on. As an adult, you should ask yourself is that what caused your sugar sensitivity or is something else to blame.

What is It?
Sugar sensitivity is a condition where you feel a sensation in your teeth when you eat something sweet. It does not necessarily mean that you eat too much sugar. It can happen no matter how much sweet food you eat. The amount of pain or sensation a person feels will vary.

Causes of Sugar Sensitivity

It is possible that you can develop sugar sensitivity over time. Exposer to highly acidic foods and brushing too hard can lead to issues with sensitivity. These things can remove the enamel on the front of teeth. That exposes the inner parts of the tooth and can lead to those feelings of pain when irritated. If the enamel is exposed, sweet foods can easily cause the sensitivity.

What to Do About It
If you suffer from sugar sensitivity, you can take some steps to help. Turn to a soft bristled toothbrush. This can prevent you from wearing down the enamel. Don't brush too hard. There is such a thing as brushing too hard or too long. Take it a little easier. Use a desensitizing toothpaste. These products have ingredients that will reduce the sensitivity of the teeth.

The best thing you can do is to prevent the sugar sensitivity from happening. Learn how to properly brush your teeth and make sure you have the right kind of toothbrush. Avoid foods that can damage the enamel.

Taking these steps can help prevent any problems with sugar sensitivity.
