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 Worry About Generic Products When It Comes to Toothbrushes?

Posted on 1/20/2020 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Do You Need to Worry About Generic Products When It Comes to Toothbrushes?All of us love to save a buck. However, there are places it really doesn't pay to go cheap. One of those places where it might not be good to pinch pennies is on your toothbrush.

We know, we've seen millions of toothbrushes all over the dollar stores- but with regard to your toothbrushes, cheaper may come at a cost to your oral health.

Why Toothbrushes Are So Important

Toothbrushes are the most important tool we have for cleaning your teeth. First, toothbrushes help to clean any excess food away from your teeth, which helps to prevent bacteria from gaining a foothold. We want as little bacteria in your mouth as possible, because bacteria cause both tooth decay and gum disease.

Brushing your teeth also helps to keep plaque off your teeth. Plaque is that film that settles over your teeth. If it hardens, it can cause tartar, which may cause an infection of your gums. Brushing your teeth keeps plaque at bay.

Don't Be Cheap
Researchers have noted that while toothbrush handles are roughly the same no matter how cheap or expensive your toothbrush is, the bristles are not. You need to find a toothbrush that is soft, so that it won't damage your teeth. Stiff bristles can actually cause more harm than good. It can even scrape off your tooth enamel, which you definitely don't want.

Also, cheap toothbrush bristles are not durable, which means you may not be getting the kind of clean you were hoping for. The bristles have a better chance of coming apart on a cheaper toothbrush than they do with a more expensive one.

Do you have questions about how to brush your teeth effectively? Give us a call today, and let us talk to you about how to make sure you are getting the best toothbrush possible for your mouth. Your teeth will thank you.
