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,

What to Know Before Oral Surgery


Posted on 1/20/2017 by Andrew Zeiger
A woman talking with her oral surgeon about her upcoming surgery.Oral surgery of any kind can be a bit daunting. Most surgeries are outpatient procedures, though, and you will be able to go home shortly after it's over.

Knowing what to expect during and after the procedure can make the process a bit easier. Here are a few things you should know before you go in for oral surgery.

Discuss Concerns About Oral Surgury


There are many people who fear the dentist, and are frightened by the prospect of having oral surgery. Talk with your surgeon before your procedure. Let him or her know about your concerns. Your surgeon can explain the process and answer any questions you may have.

Have Someone with You
Most oral surgery procedures require general anesthesia. This means that when you are ready to go home, you will more than likely be unable to drive a car. For this reason, it is important for you to have someone with you who can drive you home.

Fasting
If you do require general anesthesia, you will need to fast. You should abstain from eating or drinking anything, even water, for at least eight hours before your appointment. If you are only having a local anesthetic, make sure you give yourself about two hours between your last meal and your appointment time.

What to Wear
Arrive at your appointment wearing comfortable clothes. Short sleeved shirts are best, because they allow vitals to be checked and general anesthesia to be administered. Avoid wearing jewelry as it will only need to be removed. Lip balm may also be a good idea as your lips may become dry.

[Prepare Your Home
After your procedure, you are going to need to rest. Prepare your home before your procedure so that you don't need to run errands or do too much around your house. Stock your refrigerator and pantry with soft foods that will be easy to eat. Avoid hard, crunchy foods, as well as foods that are acidic or spicy. It will be important to eat nutritious foods, as getting proper nutrients is crucial to a healthy recovery.

Set up your home so that you can rest comfortably. Add some extra pillows to your sofa and your bed so that you can lay back with your head elevated. Keep books, magazines, games and the television remote nearby. You might become bored resting, so having several things to do within arm's reach can encourage you to stay resting.

With a bit of preparation, you can arrive prepared for a successful surgery and you will be ready to rest up and recover without problems.

Please contact our office if you have any questions about oral surgery.
