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!

Digital Impressions
Prescott Valley, AZ

In conjunction with our same-day crown technology, Bradshaw Family Dental also offers Digital Impression technology. Rather than traditional impression techniques, where a mold of your mouth is taken and used to make a model of the tooth, we utilize an ultra-high definition camera to photograph the tooth in your mouth directly onto our computer.

We can then design your crown on the computer right in front of you. The design process lasts approximately 10 minutes, and once complete, your finished crown is ready to be cemented in 45 minutes. This digital impression technology can be utilized for most crowns, inlays, onlays, and even certain implant procedures.


What is a digital impression?

When we need to create dental appliances such as dental crowns, bridges, and inlays/onlays we rely on digital impressions to help us craft them. We use a tool known as an intraoral scanner to make a three dimensional digital map of your teeth. With this image we have a permanent digital record of your teeth that we can use as a reference for producing a dental appliance like a crown.

Is it invasive?

Absolutely not. Having a digital impression done is one of the least invasive procedures we offer. The process involves a handheld device that we simply run over your teeth the way we might with a camera taking pictures. The part of the scanner that enters your mouth is roughly the size of the head of your tooth brush.

Same Day Crowns

Digital impressions go hand-in-hand with same day crowns. By speeding up the process by which we measure and take impressions of your teeth we are able to offer procedures like same day crowns. This cuts a tremendous amount of time out of the standard crown procedure. Normally it takes at least two separate visits to our office to have a permanent crown fitted.


With digital impressions we are able to take an impression of your tooth or teeth, scan the impression into our CEREC mill and have the tooth crafter within an hour. While the crown is being crafted we will prepare your tooth to receive it by shaving off some of the enamel. Once the crown has been crafted and your tooth is prepped to receive it, we can apply a permanent cement between your tooth and the crown and set it with a special ultraviolet light. That’s it!

Same day crowns save time and money.


Patient Education

At Bradshaw Family Dental we are passionate about patient education. Patient education makes the biggest difference in our fight against poor oral hygiene. Digital impressions allow us to take high definition imagery of your mouth and share them with you almost immediately. We can discuss problem areas within your mouth and show you spots where you have done a good job taking care of your teeth.

A point of reference makes a big difference to people when it comes to oral hygiene. Digital impressions allow us to give our patients that point of reference.
