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,

Foods That Naturally Give You Fresher Breath

Posted on 11/20/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Foods That Naturally Give You Fresher BreathOne thing everybody hates is bad breath. Whether it's from morning breath, something you ate or a dental problem, it's all just as bad. However, all is not lost. There are ways which can be used to minimize or completely eradicate bad breath. One of the most effective is ensuring good dental hygiene.

That means taking good care of your mouth with some of the best practices in the field such as brushing and flossing. However, on a preventive note, you might want to consider the foods you ingest. Some foods are capable of giving us bad breath while others freshen the mouth, thus eliminating any foul smells. To this end, here are a few that will give you fresher breath:

Raw Fruits and Vegetables

Crispy veggies and fruits such as pears, apples, cucumbers, and celery are very good at eliminating bad breath. They are also crucial in helping the mouth produce saliva and also assist in eliminating odor-producing bacteria. Since these vegetables and fruits are quite crunchy, they also scrub your teeth thereby removing any food particles the bacteria can use for fuel.

Probiotic Yogurt

Yogurt is also another food that can provide you with the fresh breath you need. Probiotic yogurt is filled with good a bacterium that not only helps out your digestive system, but research has also shown that it lowers sulfite compound levels in the mouth. These compounds are the ones responsible for a lot of the bad breath in your mouth. However, ensure that its probiotic yogurt and it doesn't have added sugars since they are a big cause of bad breath and give bacteria in the mouth fuel.


Perhaps the most overlooked solution for nasty breath is water. When you drink a good amount of water through the day, you keep the mouth moist and also rinse away any particles from your teeth thereby giving the bacteria in your mouth a lot less to work with.

Eating the right foods is crucial for maintaining good oral health. This way, you keep the mouth fresh while still enjoying the health benefits that come with these foods. If you have any questions about foods that can enhance your oral health, don't hesitate to reach out to us today!
