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
epidemic.

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,

There Is No Single Approach That Will Keep Every Mouth Clean


Posted on 1/25/2021 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
There Is No Single Approach That Will Keep Every Mouth CleanGood oral health is necessary to achieve good overall health. Poor oral health will lead to gum disease. If untreated, gum disease will affect your esteem and confidence and increase your risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes. To keep your mouth clean and prevent these problems, you should brush and floss your teeth and maintain regular dental care by coming to see us.

Brushing and Flossing


To remove harmful plaque and bacteria from your mouth, you need to brush your teeth regularly. Brushing your teeth removes food particles and bacteria on the tooth surface. Effective brushing requires fluoride toothpaste and the right toothbrush that you should replace after every three months. You should also use the proper technique in brushing your teeth for about two minutes. Aggressive brushing will damage your tooth enamel and cause tooth sensitivity. To remove particles between your teeth where the toothbrush bristles cannot penetrate, you should floss at least once daily. Flossing also prevents plaque buildup and bad breath.

Come See Us


To keep your mouth clean, you should schedule a routine exam and cleaning with us at least twice a year. During this checkup, we will examine your mouth for cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. If we spot these issues, we will schedule a treatment to ensure your mouth is healthy. During your routine exams, we will also clean your teeth to remove plaque buildup, which regular brushing cannot remove. This will prevent the acid and bacteria in the plaque from wearing out your enamel and tooth decay. Given that every mouth is different, you can keep yours clean and healthy by practicing good oral habits. Besides the above, you should also avoid sugary and acidic foods that may harm your teeth. Instead, replace these foods with healthy options such as fruits and vegetables. For more details on keeping your mouth clean, contact our office today.
