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!

Tooth Extraction
Prescott Valley, AZ



Bradshaw Family Dental understands how stressful it can be to hear that you need to have a tooth extracted. It can be scary and a little unsettling at times. However, you are perfectly safe here, and we want you to be as comfortable as you can be in our office. If you are in need of a tooth extraction for whatever reason, give our office a call at (928) 277-0076, and we can get you set up to be happy and comfortable again in your smile in no time flat.


Why Do I Need an Extraction?


Extractions can happen for many different reasons. One common reason for extractions is severe decay. When the infection reaches the pulp of your tooth, it can often be remedied by a root canal. Sometimes, though, that just isn't enough. An extraction gets rid of the bad bacteria and decay before it can spread or get worse. Another reason for extraction is gum disease. Gum disease can lead to bone and tooth loss, and over time, can spread and start to decay the inside of teeth as well, rather than just surrounding it. When this happens, it leaves us short of options, often. Sometimes your tooth is broken in a way that can’t be easily fixed, and it is better for your overall oral health just to pull it entirely. Crowding or badly positioned teeth can also lead to teeth getting pulled. Sometimes it is to prepare your mouth for an orthodontic procedure like braces, and other times it is to prevent further pain or damage, like in the case of wisdom teeth.


How is it Taken Out?


We make the area very numb with a local anesthetic. Then we classify whether your tooth requires a non-surgical or surgical extraction. If it is easy to remove, it is non-surgical. If it is impacted or broken, it may be surgical. While a non-surgical can become surgical, it can’t go the other way. If it is a surgical procedure, we make an incision and open up your gums and a bit of bone to remove the tooth in its entirety. If it is a simple removal, then we rock the tooth back and forth until it is free of everything holding it in place. Afterward, it may bleed and be sore for a while. That can be taken care of with some mild over the counter medications, but we may prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection of the site.


It is easy to get psyched out before a procedure as altering as this one, but it is important to remember that here at Bradshaw Family Dental, your health is our number one priority, and we want to make you as comfortable as can be. We will take care of you from start to finish, and should there be any complications after the fact, we will take care of you then too. Your safety, health, and comfortability are all important to us, and we will make sure that your experience goes off without a hitch.
