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,

Benefits of a High Fiber Diet When it Comes to Your Oral Health


Posted on 11/13/2017 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger

Most people today realize that maintaining a good diet will help keep their mouth in better shape while also enhancing their health in other ways. Few people think about the exact foods that they should eat to keep teeth healthy though.

Sure, we know that calcium is important for strong bones and good solid teeth, and we know that sugary drinks and foods should be avoided at all costs. But few people realize that they should be consuming many high-fiber foods daily to improve the health of their mouths. That's right, you should be taking fiber in regularly if you want your mouth to stay in good shape over time.

Fiber and Tooth Health

Recent studies show that men and women that consume fiber-rich foods are less likely to suffer from periodontal disease later in life. That means their gums and teeth will remain in good condition over time, and they will not suffer from many issues at all because of the high fiber diet that the patient is on.

If you want to prevent things like gum disease from occurring, it's worth thinking about exactly how much fiber you have in your diet currently. If you aren't eating high fiber foods like apples and bananas regularly, you should make an active effort to start including them.

Make Healthy Diet Changes Today

Just realizing that high fiber foods are a good positive change to your diet isn't enough, you have to make the changes to your diet to benefit from these foods.

Starting today take action to add more fiber-rich foods into your diet, and to cut out things like soda, or sweet foods that you may have eaten throughout the day. If you must consume sugary foods, eat them all at the same time so that you can easily clean your mouth after and leave it plaque free so that your mouth does not develop cavities over time.

Though it's not exactly clear how fiber rich foods help prevent a range of dental conditions, there is evidence showing that to be the case. Make sure that you are eating enough fiber and you won't have to worry about gum issues as much.
