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,

Does the Type of Toothpaste You Use Matter?


Posted on 9/6/2021 by Candice
Does the Type of Toothpaste You Use Matter?Walking down the grocery store aisle, the consumer is bombarded with many different brands of toothpaste. The glittery marketing can be overwhelming. In addition, oral hygiene products like toothbrushes, mouthwashes, and dental floss also come in many shapes and sizes, compounding the decision for the consumer. We know we should brush our teeth, but what toothpaste should we choose?

Types of Toothpaste


It is important to take time to review the types of toothpaste available for purchase. The first consideration is whether to buy fluoride toothpaste or non-fluoride toothpaste. Consider the benefits of toothpaste containing fluoride. Fluoride helps to protect your teeth from decay. When you brush with a toothpaste containing fluoride, you will remove the thin film of bacteria that sticks to your teeth and reap other benefits as well. Fluoride toothpaste strengthens your enamel and disinfects your mouth.

In today's market, toothpaste companies attract the attention of many types of consumers. For instance, if you have sensitive teeth or gums, you can find a type of toothpaste that is less abrasive. If you have stains on your teeth, there are different types of toothpastes that will aid in removing the discoloration from your teeth. Lastly, you may have a flavor preference. A version of the mint flavor is typical, but you can find exotic flavors as well. Lavender, cinnamon, and cupcake-flavored toothpastes are a few of the more interesting varieties available for purchase.

Let us Check on Your Brushing


We should see you for a dental checkup and exam every six months. At those exams, we would love to help you improve your brushing and flossing technique. In addition, we can discuss different types of toothpaste, and according to your needs, we can advise the best kind for your specific oral health.
