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,

Foods to Keep Around During Oral Surgery Recovery


Posted on 8/20/2019 by Andrew Zeiger
Foods to Keep Around During Oral Surgery RecoveryThere are many steps to a successful oral surgery procedure. All of them play a role in the success or failure of the surgery. Getting an early diagnosis of the problem and preparing for the surgery is the first step. Going through the procedure is the second step.

The last step is going through the recovery. You do not want to do everything right before and during the surgery only to ruin it by following a bad diet during the recovery. Keeping these foods ready is a key to a successful recovery from oral surgery.

Consider These Foods


During the initial stage of recovery, it is best to turn to foods that will not put any stress on the surgical site. Many people will follow a liquid diet during this time. Foods can include broths, shakes and smoothies. It is best to avoid foods high in acid or sugar. Getting foods that are high in vitamins and anti-oxidants can help with the recovery.

As you move further away from the oral surgery, you can add other soft foods to your diet. Oatmeal, mashed potatoes, yogurt, Jell-O and pudding are some of the foods that can provide your body with the sustenance, vitamins and minerals it needs.

The more time that goes by, the more foods you can add to your diet. It is important to start adding foods that require a little more chewing to exercise the jaw and gums. It is never a good idea to follow a soft food diet for a long period of time because of the damage that this type of diet can cause.

No matter what types of food you choose to eat after oral surgery, it is important to think about how eating them makes you feel. If you choose a food that causes pain or discomfort, you may want to wait before trying it again. Healing from oral surgery takes time and effort to get the best results.
