Prescott Valley, AZ

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!

Air Abrasion Dental Treatment
Prescott Valley, AZ


Happy kids - Air Abrasion Dental Treatment Prescott Valley, AZAt Bradshaw Family Dental, we can remove decay without a drill, without vibration, and without pain, through a system of air and abrasive materials under one of our dentists care. Imagine being able to have your dental treatment completed without the use of a drill. This is the future of dentistry, and it is only possible with air abrasion technology.

Air abrasion is ideal for kids and adult patients who are fearful of the dental drill. This tool works well to remove decay from small cavities, and to prepare a tooth for bonding or dental sealants. This tool is not ideal for patients who have deep cavities or are being prepped for a dental crown, an inlay or an onlay. Our dentists are happy to discuss this technology with you and determine if you are a candidate for this system.

How does this system work?

Air Abrasion allows us to drill, without the drill. Using an air blasting system, along with small aluminum oxide particles, which is an abrasive material, we are able to blast the decay from a specified area. The blast is a very small and directed blast, so the patient feels no discomfort. Working as a mini sandblaster, directed compressed air, along with fine particles to clear away the decay, is passed through a dental instrument. The debris is then continuously suctioned away, leaving no debris in your mouth.

Is this painful?

Surprisingly no! The idea of sand blasting your teeth may sound intimidating, but the process is not. Many patients do not even require the same anesthesia that a traditional drill procedure would. Additionally, air abrasion:

•  Does not cause a vibration in your mouth while the work is done.
•  Has no smell, many patients do not like the smell of heat that comes from drilling.
•  Has no sound, it does not produce that drilling noise that causes patients to feel anxious.
•  Does not apply any pressure to your tooth or inside your mouth.

We want our patients to feel comfortable in their dental care. When a patient is nervous or anxious of a pending procedure, the chances of them ignoring issues or hoping problems will go away increases. Air Abrasion is a way to alleviate those fears, together, we can decrease your worries, and remove those things that can make a patient anxious. Our doctors want you to come, take care of both small and large issues, and have a healthy mouth. The health of your mouth is a factor in your overall health.

Schedule a consultation or call for more information on Air Abrasion. You may be a candidate to have your treatment completed at Bradshaw Family Dental using our air abrasion unit. Our patients love that with the air abrasion system, there is no noise, no smell, no heat, and no pain.
