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 to Curb Your Nervous Biting Habits
Posted on 10/19/2020 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
How to Curb Your Nervous Biting HabitsDo you have a bad habit of biting on your nails, on a straw, or on any other object? These nervous biting habits can damage your teeth, so you do want to curb them as much as possible. How can you do that, though? There are a few little tips and tricks you can follow to help get your nervous biting habits under control.

Have the Right Approach


If you truly want to stop your nervous biting habits, you first need to approach it in the right way. First, make the decision to curb these habits. You have to be dedicated to stopping your nervous biting. If you're not, you likely won't make much headway in your attempts to stop this habit. Next, start making a note of when you start biting. You may even want to start a journal. Write down where you were, what time it was, and what you were doing. Put down any information you think may have contributed to your biting, such as whether you were feeling stressed or if you were thinking about something specific. Looking at patterns in these journal entries can give you an idea of when you might be tempted to start your nervous habit, so you can make the conscious decision to not engage.

Use the Right Tools


There are a number of different tools and methods you can use to curb your biting habits. First, you can acknowledge what you feel like doing and then recognize that you don't have to. You don't need to chew on a straw or bite on your nails. You can also try replacing this bad habit with something else. You could squeeze a stress ball or tap out a rhythm with your fingers. Even keeping a stash of healthy snacks like fruits or vegetables could be a replacement. Anything that will help you stop this bad habit. If you've been biting your nails or chewing on things for a number of years, you may have done some damage to your teeth. Be sure to mention it to us at your next appointment. If you don't have one scheduled, give us a call to get you on the books.
