Prescott Valley, AZ

To Our Valued Patients at Surprise Smiles,

Welcome! We are open, looking forward to seeing returning patients, accepting new patients, and operating under normal business hours! The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDS) is still not recommending any type of closures or modification in hours. We will continue to monitor information coming from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and AZDHS and keep you apprised of any changes or updates. We will stay on top of this information and bring it to you as soon as possible through our website, email, and social media.

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, our dentists and dental team want to assure you that we are continuing to do our best to make sure it a priority that we are following the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC, specifically as they relate to the dental industry. We value keeping our patients and staff members safe and comfortable.

As part of our daily standard health and safety protocols, our office follows ‘Universal Precautions’ in order to protect our patients and our staff. These are precautions we have always taken, and are not new. By taking ‘universal precautions’ means we always assume that anyone could potentially be carrying a contagious and dangerous disease. We therefore follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, be it COVID-19 (Coronavirus), hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, or any other disease. This has been a standard of care we follow, per the CDC, in regard to blood borne pathogens.

These measures include:
•  strict hand washing protocols
•  use of (single use) disposable protective equipment and barriers
•  thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit
•  disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments and routine monitoring of sterilization verification
•  continued education on infection control

•  disinfecting common surface areas every 30 minutes
•  providing hand sanitizer in common areas
•  screening everyone who enters our offices based on CDC recommendations
•  offering preprocedural mouth rinse

As state and national health and safety regulations change and evolve during these times, Surprise Smiles is dedicated to monitoring and evaluating our dental practice and office space for any potential risks as we serve our patients and community. We strive to maintain an approach to our dentistry services that is both safe and beneficial to everyone we serve.

We strive to provide a safe, healthy, comfortable, and relaxed environment for everyone that comes into our dental office. We follow the American Dental Association’s Update to Office Procedures During COVID-19 in regard to safe office procedures, workplace hazards, and making decisions for best office practices. We stay informed on recent information given to dentists in this regard, as well as keeping up to date with any changes recommended by the CDC.

Please let us know if you have any questions in regard to our health and safety protocols here at Surprise Smiles. We recognize that it can be challenging during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. We all want to get back to our normal lives, and we will be able to do so, in a safe, wise, and healthy manner. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have in regard to our dental practice health and safety protocols, cleaning, and disinfecting procedures we follow.

Thank you for continuing to be a valued patient here at Bradshaw Family Dental. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your dental needs through the various services we provide for you, from preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants and more!

Dental Laser Technology
Prescott Valley, AZ


A dental laser - Bradshaw Family DentalDental laser therapy gives us at Bradshaw Family Dental a less invasive, more comfortable option to treat our patients. Oral health is something that we take very seriously and anytime that new dental technology proves to increase the health of our patients, we are happy to adopt it. But what is dental laser technology and how can it help you?

Benefits of Laser Therapy

Dental lasers have been around for about 25 years now. Although not technically new, it’s still a technology that is in its infancy and has yet to be adopted by the dental industry as a whole. At first, dental lasers were only used in the soft tissues of the mouth to treat gums and perform high precision work. The thing that always made dental laser treatment stand out was its unmatched ability to provide patients with comfort and quicker post-surgery healing. It even allows us to use less anesthetic.

Two Types of Laser Dentistry

Today we have two distinct varieties of dental lasers – those that treat hard tissue like bone and teeth, and those that treat soft tissue like gums. The major advantages noted above (quick healing and low irritation) remain a staple of the dental laser today. We are able to ensure the preservation of healthier teeth, bone and gum structures than if we were to use traditional treatment methods.

At Bradshaw Family Dental We understand the limitations of all of our tools and technologies, and when it is appropriate to implement dental lasers. When we do use dental lasers, you can count on the following positive results:

•  Faster healing and less post-op pain
•  Much lower risk of infection
•  Inflammation after treatment is virtually done away with
•  Very little or no bleeding
•  A quick recovery for both soft and hard tissue


Gum Disease and Dental Laser Technology

When oral health begins to wane it is common for signs of gum disease to make their way into your mouth. Gums that bleed easily with brushing or flossing and red, irritated gums are the biggest signs of gum disease. When it reaches a point that the disease can’t be treated with at-home oral care it may be necessary to treat the gums with a soft tissue dental laser.

Hard Tissue Treatments

We are now able to use dental lasers to aid in cavity detection. Before we had to rely on tactile feel, sight, and X-rays. Now we can simply use a dental laser to highlight cavities. We can even use lasers to treat sensitive teeth!

Staying Ahead of the Technological Curve

We are always trying to find safe, effective, and ingenuitive ways to treat our patients to the very best in dentistry. We are pleased to see your happy, healthy smile! No matter what kind of treatment you receive, rest assured that we will provide you with comprehensive care and recovery instructions.

Please call us today at (928) 277-0076 to schedule an appointment. Remember, if you experience red, swollen, or gums that bleed easily call us to schedule an appointment as this could be the sign of a more serious condition.
