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,

First Steps to Take Following Dental Trauma


Posted on 11/10/2018 by Andrew Zeiger
First Steps to Take Following Dental TraumaWhen a person suffers any type of traumatic injury, the treatment and things they do when it happens, plays a large role in how much damage their body suffers. The problem is that many people do not know what to do if something happens to themselves or to someone else. This is especially true in the case of a dental trauma. There are several things to do that can help a person recover from the dental trauma that they suffer.

Types of Dental Trauma


There are plenty of different types of dental trauma that range from the mild to the severe. While dental trauma can refer to almost any injury involving the mouth, jaw, teeth and gums, there are some types of trauma that are more common.

The most common types of dental trauma include:

•  Cuts and scratches on the inside of the mouth, the gums and the tongue.
•  Injuries to the teeth such as chips, fractures or lost teeth.
•  Burns to the lips, tongue, gums and the inside of the mouth.

The first steps to take in treating these types of trauma depend on what type of injury a person has, the age of the person involved and the severity of the problem.

Taking Steps


The first step in any type of trauma is to access what the injury is. In the case of dental trauma some of the things to look for include:

•  Stay calm.
•  Check for swelling or bleeding from the site of the injury.
•  Make sure that the ability to breath is not affected.
•  Check for other signs of a head injury, such as loss of consciousness or disorientation.

After assessing what the injury is, it is possible to take a few other steps. If there is bleeding, pressure or some type of dressing can help stop the bleeding. If the injury knocked out a tooth or part of the tooth, collect the pieces it in milk to help keep it moist. Treat minor burns by running cold water over the affected area.

In addition to taking some basic steps, the last step to do when dental trauma occurs is to contact our offices to get an emergency appointment. The sooner you treat the trauma, the better the outcome.
Contact our office right away in the event of a dental trauma or for help with any other oral health issues you may have.
