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

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,

Cone Beam Surprise, AZ

Cone Beam Imaging Surprise, AZWhen performing complicated dental procedures or surgeries, it helps to gather as much information about the patient as possible before beginning the procedure. We call this the treatment planning process. One of the most valuable tools that we possess here a Surprise Smiles is the CS 9300 cone beam imagining system. This system allows us to take incredibly detailed images of the structures within your mouth, in much the same way an X-ray does. The big difference between this machine and a digital X-ray machine is this one takes 3D images. We can use this machine to diagnose and discover issues and structures within your mouth as well as plan for procedures.

How is 3D imaging different from a traditional x-ray?

An X-ray takes singular images of your teeth in much the same way a digital camera does. X-rays produce still frame images (pictures) of the interior structures of your mouth. The CS 9300 cone beam scanner scans your entire mouth, starting on one side of your face and swiveling around to the other side to produce a digital model of all of the structures within your mouth.

If we were to take a physical impression of your mouth and use that mold to create a model of your teeth that you could hold in your hands, that would look similar to the digital model that this machine allows us to create. The big difference between the physical model and the digital ones is that we can test all sorts of things on the digital ones without ever having to worry about the integrity of the model.

How is the CS 9300 different from other CT scanners?

This system is much more accurate and allows for an incredible level of detail and depth in its images. For our patients, this means less time and money spent sitting in front of an imaging device.

One of the most impressive parts of this system is that it can get such an incredible level of detail while exposing the patient to extremely low levels of radiation. The CS 9300 cone beam scanner exposes our patients to less than one-fifth the amount of radiation that a traditional X-ray machine does!

How does it work?

This machine is essentially a digital X-ray machine that is mounted on a moving swing arm. As the device swivels around the head pf the patient, it is taking a long, continuous scan of their mouth.

Because the images that it takes are digital, they are available for viewing very quickly after being taken. We can begin building a treatment plan for you or diagnosing any issues we find, right away instead of having to wait for X-rays to develop.

What happens after the scan?

When the scan is complete, we will use the information that the digital impression gives us to develop a treatment plan for your oral or facial issue. Because it is delivered in a digital format, we can easily share it with referral doctors that may also be working on your case.
