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,

Ways to Stop Chewing on Pens and Pencils

Posted on 9/21/2021 by Candice
Ways to Stop Chewing on Pens and PencilsChewing on pens and pencils might seem harmless, but it actually poses a great risk to your health. This is because chewing on pens that have harmful germs could pass these germs into your oral cavity and into your bloodstream. Furthermore, chewing on pens with hard surfaces can affect your teeth by cracking or loosening them. This can impact their functioning significantly. Therefore, you need to find ways of stopping this habit. Some of the ways you can do so include choosing your pens wisely and coating them.

Choosing Pens Wisely

There are pens that are easy to chew on compared to others. The chewy ones have rubber ends that are smooth and inviting to chew on. Avoiding such pens will go a long way in stopping the habit. Therefore, go for metallic pens that will discourage you from putting them in your mouth. After using such pens for over a month, your habit of chewing on pens will end. This underlines the importance of getting pens that are non-chewy and metallic.

Coat Your Pens

Coating your pen can also help stop this habit. Coating your pens using a substance known as "Stop and Glow" can be a great way to end the habit of chewing on pens. This substance is used as a nail varnish, clear in color but has a disgusting taste. The taste is only noticed when put in your mouth. This means that when you coat your pen, no one will notice it. It is an effective method of stopping the chewing habit that most experts recommend. With its clear color, applying small droplets of it on the rare end of your pen will get the job done. Using this method will end the habit within a few weeks. However, you are advised keep the coated pens away from toddlers. Contact our offices for more information on how to stop the habit of chewing on pens and pencils.
