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,

Checking for Oral Cancer Between Visits to the Oral Surgeon

Posted on 1/10/2018 by Andrew Zeiger
Mouth Cancer Surprise Smiles AZ 85374-2451Oral cancer affects more men than it does women, and it also affects those who drink and use tobacco more than it does those who don't.

Still, those who drink regularly and smoke at the same are at even higher risk than those that indulge in only one of the vices. Other causes of the disease include the human papilloma virus, poor nutrition, as well as exposure to the sun.

Detection Of Mouth Cancer

Most people will complain of mouth sores that will not go away and sometimes the feeling of something caught in the throat. Pain in the mouth, teeth, or jaw may also be a cancer indication unless the doctor rules it out.

During a regular check, a physician will notice some of the signs and conduct further tests. We screen our patients during routine checkups so that we can catch the condition while it's still in its initial stages.

Mouth cancer starts in the thin areas of your mouth, such as the lips and the mouth lining, and so we check them for any suspicious activity. We will also check the throat and back section of the tongue. Any abnormal growths on your jaw and neck could be signs of mouth cancer too.

What Happens Next?
Several intensive tests will be necessary to ascertain that you have the disease, but early detection helps. Again, you are to check out for ulcers that take too long to heal, pain or lumps in the neck and jaw, as well as persistent voice hoarseness.

Even if you are scheduled for dental surgery, and any of these symptoms show, you should make it known immediately because early detection saves lives.

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