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,

Four Crucial Reasons to Brush before Bed


Posted on 3/13/2016 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
A woman brushing her teeth to protect her oral health!Your dentist is always telling you to brush twice a day, but is it really a big deal if you brush before bed?

After all, it's not like having bad breath really matters while you are asleep. Well, the answer is yes, and there are a variety of important reasons that you need to clean your teeth before you call it a night.

Get Rid of Accumulating Plaque

Your teeth are introduced to harmful elements all day, ranging from the cup of coffee that you have right away in the morning to the pencil that you chew on during your afternoon staff meeting. That means that a ton of bacteria and germs are accessing your teeth and causing plaque. Get rid of them by brushing before bed.

Reduce the Amount of Plaque that Builds Up While You Are Sleeping

While you are sleeping, saliva won't be washing over your teeth to rid your mouth of plaque, so it is important to get rid of it before you go to bed. This will reduce your risk of damage to your gums and teeth while you are getting your beauty rest.

Prepare for Dry Mouth

When you sleep, your mouth will produce less saliva, providing the perfect environment for plaque bacteria to breed. By brushing before you go to sleep, you'll prepare your teeth for this upcoming dry mouth, and you can remove a lot of the plaque and bacteria that might cause damage.

Feel Fresher in the Morning
Have you ever fallen asleep before you brushed your teeth, only to wake up with a terrible taste in your mouth? Consider what you ate and drank the day before, and remember that all of those food particles were able to sit in your mouth for a full 24 hours. By brushing before bed, you'll be able to clean your teeth so that your mouth feels fresher when you wake up in the morning.

Please contact us if you have any questions about your oral health.
