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,

How Often Should You Replace Your Toothbrush?


Posted on 2/20/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
How Often Should You Replace Your Toothbrush?Toothbrushes are an important part of your dental hygiene routine. In order to have a cleaner, brighter, fresher mouth, the use of a toothbrush is a must. However, did you know? You should replace your toothbrush throughout the year for the best results.

We also recommend that you use a toothpaste with fluoride in it for stronger, healthier teeth and gums. Children should learn to brush their teeth even before they have them, because great oral hygiene habits start at a young age.

Replacing Your Toothbrush - When, Why, How?

Who knew that the toothbrush had to be replaced often in order to reduce the number of bacteria that you're putting back into your mouth?

Toothbrushes should be replaced every 3 to 4 months. However, if you have had any sort of contagious illness, then replacing the toothbrush sooner with a new one is recommended. The toothbrush can hold onto those germs that got you sick in the first place. If you are unsure of how long you have had the toothbrush for or if the bristles on the ends of the brush are frayed, then it is time to replace the brush.

Having a cleaner toothbrush is good for everyone. Remember, you should never share a toothbrush with someone because of the germs that are shared when you do so. You want to always keep it clean and covers can cause bacteria to multiply when they are put on them. Air drying is the best for toothbrushes so that this is something that doesn't happen. Happy brushing!
