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

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,

Do You Have an Infection After Oral Surgery?

Posted on 10/20/2017 by Andrew Zeiger
 Tooth Infection Surprise Smiles AZ 85374-2451
Infections are a common problem with so many that have had oral surgery. It is important to consider many factors after the procedure is done.

Usually, the professionals here provide you with information on how to spot infections, so that if you notice one, you can seek out the professional help needed to reduce the chances of having anything further happen.

Make sure to keep an eye out for these symptoms, as an oral infection can cause a great deal of pain and should be taken care of as soon as possible through a professional dentist.

Signs of an Infection After Oral Surgery

Our dental professionals provide the patients with information regarding infections of the mouth after surgery. Watch for these infection signs:

•  Fever and pain
•  Bad breath or bitter taste in the mouth
•  Tooth sensitivity
•  Swollen glands in the neck, jaw or gum line
•  Extreme fatigue
•  General sick-like feeling

Usually after oral surgery, our surgeons will prescribe an antibiotic for most patients. This will reduce the chances of an infection actually happening. This also safeguards the person against problems that might come about for various reasons when oral hygiene is not kept up during the time.

Stick with the instructions given by our oral surgeons and keep the area clean and you should not have a problem with infections once the procedure has been completed. Our surgeons take all precautions to minimize these risks.

Call Our Professionals
If you have these symptoms, whether one or many, it is important to speak with our dentists. We provide you with more information to treat the infection or any other issues you might be having. An infection can become a larger problem if it is not treated effectively the first time. This is why calling our office to speak with someone, even after hours are important.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (602) 842-4864 today.
