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,

What to Do Should an Oral Emergency Arise?
Posted on 9/7/2020 by Candice
What to Do Should an Oral Emergency Arise?There are a number of reasons that a person might need to get in touch with one of our dentists or other oral professionals suddenly and without warning. In the case of such an emergency, the things that you do can make quite a bit of difference in how bad the problem becomes, as well as the long-term effects or results that it has. If you find yourself in one of these situations, the very first thing that you need to do is get in contact with us. Our knowledgeable staff can instruct you as to what you need to do specifically for your particular issue. But to give you a general idea of what constitutes one of these oral emergencies, as well as what type of actions you may have to take in regard to them, here is a little bit more information:

Dental Trauma and Response


Things such as a tooth that has been knocked out or loosened, cracked or fractured, shifted or jammed down into the gum, as well as any cuts or tears to the gums themselves are all good examples of occurrences which would qualify as an emergency. In any of these cases, again, the first thing you need to do is contact one of our staff members immediately following the incident. They will be able to guide you as to what you need to be doing before coming in, such as rinsing your mouth, handling or packing the lost tooth, as well as how to address lacerated or damaged gums.

So, if you are facing one of these or any other type of dental emergency, there is absolutely no time to waste getting in contact with us. In fact, you need to call our clinic before doing any of the tasks mentioned in the above section as they are only general suggestions and your individual case may require special instruction.
