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,

Drink Everything You Can Through a Straw This Summer


Posted on 7/13/2016 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
A young teenage girl drinking through a straw.Summer is here, which means the temperatures are climbing, inevitably causing you to desire some tasty summertime beverages. Be it soda, sweet tea or a fresh fruit beverage, chances are you're consuming a rather large amount of sugar, which can be detrimental to your teeth.

You don't have to avoid these backyard favorites though. Have you ever considered drinking your thirst quencher through a straw?

What Can Sugar Do?

With summer comes a whole wide selection of beverages. Soda and sweet tea are favorites for cookouts. With the variety of fruits coming into season, the options for fresh pressed juices are practically limitless. No matter what you choose to drink on a warm summer afternoon, chances are, you are taking in quite a lot of sugar. All of this sugar can wreak havoc on your teeth.

If you aren't careful, it can collect in your mouth and cause your teeth to decay. While you may have heard this about the added sugars in sodas and teas, even the natural sugars present in fresh fruit juices can be just as problematic. But just because your favorite drink poses this risk, that doesn't mean you should stay away. There are ways to keep it on the menu.

Drinking Through A Straw

When pouring a glass of your summer beverage of choice, try topping it off with a straw. By sipping through a straw, you are limiting the chances of large amounts of sugary liquid coming in contact with your teeth, instead sending it straight to your throat.

It does not completely eliminate that contact though. So, to ensure that you completely get rid of this sugar, be sure to drink water occasionally and always be sure to keep up with your daily oral hygiene routine.

Summer means soda, sweet tea and lots of fresh fruit juice. It also means lots of sugar potentially causing some severe teeth issues. But by drinking through a straw, you reduce the chances that sugar comes in contact with your teeth, saving them from decay.

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