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!

Biomimetic Dentistry
Prescott Valley, AZ


At Bradshaw Family Dentistry, our dentists are able to restore your teeth using Biomimetic Dentistry. This complicated term simply means to copy what you already naturally have. Using less invasive techniques and materials, we can rebuild fractured teeth opposed to the more traditional methods of placing dental crowns.


The more we learn about and advance dentistry, the more we learn that our best course of action is to keep mouths clean, and let them do what nature has done for millions of years. Teeth have evolved very little and there is a reason for that, because they are successful. Dentists already know that the biggest hazard to teeth is only about a century old, it’s the large intake of sugar. Dentistry advancements have risen due to the need of dentistry rising, we now consume considerably more sugar than in centuries past. Learning how to keep our teeth clean from sugar and debris will vastly change the condition of the teeth. Our team at Bradshaw Family Dental can teach you and your entire family the best way to care for your teeth, and how you can start the best daily routine to maintain a healthy mouth.

How will Biomimetic Dentistry fix my teeth?

This process involves rebuilding teeth in a slow, step by step, process using bonding materials. This means that we add to the tooth, and seal it from bacteria entering the crevices of your teeth leading to infection. We say the process is done slowly because bonding materials can have shrinkage. Because of this, we rebuild with the bonding material in several applications, to fill in the gaps from shrinkage and help bacteria not be able to settle.

Patients love Biomimetic Dentistry because it:
•  Does not require reducing the natural tooth structure
•  Rebuilds your teeth
•  Is less invasive in techniques and materials
•  The material used, bonding, is strong and durable

Why should I consider this method over a dental crown?

Dental Crowns have been the traditional, preferred method for strengthening teeth and covering a fractured tooth. The problem with this method is the additional damage to the original tooth structure that is required to place the crown. To place a crown, we must remove approximately 70% of the natural tooth structure, this leaves the tooth susceptible to bacteria, leading to decay and the need for a root canal.

Biomimetic believes in retaining as much of the remaining natural tooth structure as possible. It is the process of building up, rather than reducing and covering. The bonding materials available to us today are much stronger and durable than in the past, making this a good option.

Dr. Frausto loves recommending Biomimetic care because it conserves and preserves your natural tooth. This process treats weakened, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong. Additionally, it seals teeth from bacterial invasion without destroying the tooth they way that crowns do. There are many other benefits to to treating teeth the biomimetic way, for more information contact our Prescott Valley, AZ office at: 928-277-0076 or visit www.academyofbiomimeticdent.org.
