To Our Valued Patients at Surprise Smiles,

Welcome! We are open, looking forward to seeing returning patients, accepting new patients, and operating under normal business hours! The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDS) is still not recommending any type of closures or modification in hours. We will continue to monitor information coming from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and AZDHS and keep you apprised of any changes or updates. We will stay on top of this information and bring it to you as soon as possible through our website, email, and social media.

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, our dentists and dental team want to assure you that we are continuing to do our best to make sure it a priority that we are following the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC, specifically as they relate to the dental industry. We value keeping our patients and staff members safe and comfortable.

As part of our daily standard health and safety protocols, our office follows ‘Universal Precautions’ in order to protect our patients and our staff. These are precautions we have always taken, and are not new. By taking ‘universal precautions’ means we always assume that anyone could potentially be carrying a contagious and dangerous disease. We therefore follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, be it COVID-19 (Coronavirus), hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, or any other disease. This has been a standard of care we follow, per the CDC, in regard to blood borne pathogens.

These measures include:
•  strict hand washing protocols
•  use of (single use) disposable protective equipment and barriers
•  thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit
•  disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments and routine monitoring of sterilization verification
•  continued education on infection control

•  disinfecting common surface areas every 30 minutes
•  providing hand sanitizer in common areas
•  screening everyone who enters our offices based on CDC recommendations
•  offering preprocedural mouth rinse

As state and national health and safety regulations change and evolve during these times, Surprise Smiles is dedicated to monitoring and evaluating our dental practice and office space for any potential risks as we serve our patients and community. We strive to maintain an approach to our dentistry services that is both safe and beneficial to everyone we serve.

We strive to provide a safe, healthy, comfortable, and relaxed environment for everyone that comes into our dental office. We follow the American Dental Association’s Update to Office Procedures During COVID-19 in regard to safe office procedures, workplace hazards, and making decisions for best office practices. We stay informed on recent information given to dentists in this regard, as well as keeping up to date with any changes recommended by the CDC.

Please let us know if you have any questions in regard to our health and safety protocols here at Surprise Smiles. We recognize that it can be challenging during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. We all want to get back to our normal lives, and we will be able to do so, in a safe, wise, and healthy manner. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have in regard to our dental practice health and safety protocols, cleaning, and disinfecting procedures we follow.

Thank you for continuing to be a valued patient here at Bradshaw Family Dental. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your dental needs through the various services we provide for you, from preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants and more!

TMJ Treatment & Therapy

TMJ Treatment & Therapy provided by Our Expert Dentists in Prescott Valley, AZ at

Here at Bradshaw Family Dental, we know that your oral health doesn't just revolve around your teeth and gums, but your jaw as well. If your jaw is not in perfect condition, you may experience pain eating, drinking, or speaking and it could cause even more problems in your mouth. We are here to help with jaw pain, and our years of experience have pushed us to be leaders in our field when it comes to taking care of you and your jaw. If you have been experiencing jaw pain, please call us today at (928) 277-0076 so that we can get you well taken care of.

What is a TMJ?

If you are experiencing jaw pain, one acronym you have likely seen around is TMJ. What is that, though? Your TMJ, or Temporomandibular joint, is what allows your jaw to move. This can be up and down, or side to side. It is that joint near your ear that you can feel moving when you chew. When it is healthy, it is lined up properly. This means that it equally distributes bite force and causes no pain or discomfort when it comes to eating, drinking, or speaking. Other than those activities, though, a healthy TMJ is essential just to exist without pain. If it is not lined up properly or it has been injured, you could be subject to intense pain in the area and headaches. It can also lead to sinus or ear infections, which can cause further problems from there.

What is TMD?

TMD stands for Temporomandibular joint disorder. This is a very common problem which consists of pain in the muscles or the joint itself. It can cause your joint to click or grind, or the areas around it to swell painfully.

How do I get rid of it?

Treating TMD has several options, like more oral health issues. One of these options is a custom mouthguard. This mouthguard is specially created for you by a machine that we can use to monitor and process the movements of your jaw. When you use it, it gently realigns your jaw. It takes time, but when it is finished, your jaw is in the perfect position for pain-free eating and speaking and comfortable living once more. Another potential option if a mouthguard is ineffective or if you already have other concerns you need addressed could be a whole mouth restoration. This can help you to solve all of your problems in one convenient package!

Bradshaw Family Dental has years of experience in helping people just like you look and feel their absolute best. Join our ever-growing list of happy patients who keep coming back for all of their oral needs. We can help walk you through any process and help you to manage any pain that you may experience concerning your TMJ. We can work closely with you to decide what option is best for you as an individual and you will be in the absolute best care possible! You are our number one priority.
