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,

Sleep Apnea Treatment Options We Can Provide


Posted on 12/10/2019 by Andrew Zeiger
Sleep Apnea Treatment Options We Can ProvideSleep apnea is a sleeping disorder where a sufferer experiences times of non-breathing while they sleep. As scary as it sounds to stop breathing at night, the real effects of sleep apnea present themselves in the morning.

Sleep apnea sufferers often wake up in the morning feeling unrested and groggy. This feeling carries over into the daytime and sleep apnea suffers deal with fatigue throughout the day.

Fortunately, we can offer solutions to sleep apnea. We understand the difficulty of waking up and feeling tired in the morning, even though you went to bed at a reasonable hour. That's why we are here to help you with your dental related sleep apnea.

How We Can Help


There are two types of sleep apnea: obstructive and central. We are specialized in helping our clients deal with obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by a blockage of your airway while sleeping. Sometimes this is caused by snoring, but in the case of dentistry, it is often caused by nocturnal bruxism. Nocturnal bruxism is the medical name for nighttime teeth grinding. When you grind your teeth at night, this obstructs the airway and forces you to stop breathing.

The best solution for nighttime teeth grinding is to implement a mouth guard. Mouth guards help in two ways. First, they protect your teeth from damage while grinding. Grinding your teeth puts a lot of pressure on your teeth and over time can wear them down.

The second purpose of a mouth guard is to unblock your airway. It may seem a little counterintuitive to put something in your mouth so that you can breathe better, but when you grind, your brain tells your body to wake up because it thinks there is something in your mouth. When you have a mouth guard this doesn't happen though. Call our office if you think we can help you with your sleep apnea.
