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,

Professional Dental Exams and X-Rays
Surprise, AZ


Professional Cleanings, Exams, and X-rays in Surprise, AZSurprise Smiles wants you to be happy and confident in your smile. There are some ways that we can prevent anything bad happening to your teeth, but one of the essential practices are your regular checkups, at least one every six months or so. These checkups primarily consist of dental cleanings, examinations, and X-rays, which can all combine to provide us with an understanding of your mouth that we could not get any other way.

Purpose of Cleanings, Examinations, and X-rays


As you go about your daily life, your teeth deal with a lot. Different foods have different effects on teeth depending on texture and acidity, and the same goes for drinks. Perhaps you grind your teeth when you sleep or are nervous. Maybe you tend to forget to brush your teeth regularly. Whatever kind of lifestyle you live, we all have to face that our teeth have got it pretty rough. However, our checkups can help to save you much potential trouble as we can monitor changes in your teeth in response to these trends.

Dental Examinations


Dental examination is a good place to start. When you come in, we can visually examine each and every tooth. This allows us to catch little issues before they become big issues. We can also identify potential weak spots in your teeth and continue to monitor those problem areas more closely. We can see decay or infection on the surface of your teeth and find a diagnosis so that we can begin treatment right away. These examinations do not stop at your teeth, however. We can also exam your gums all around.

This is essential because healthy gums are just as important as healthy teeth. Risks like gum disease can wreak havoc on the rest of your body, and also cause infection or decay within your mouth that can spread like wildfire. We screen your tongue, gums, cheeks, and teeth for oral cancer as well. Any kind cancer is dangerous, but the sooner we can find it and deal with it, the better your odds are.

Professional Dental Cleanings


Cleanings are also important. As time goes by, tartar, plaque, and calculus build up on your teeth. This is ridden with bacteria that leaves waste that can cause decay while the bacteria themselves relentlessly attack your teeth. These bacteria also tend to travel the rest of your body as well as causing problems wherever they go. There are links between sub-par oral health and health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and strokes.

Dental X-rays


Finally, X-rays are incredibly important because they allow us to see things that surface examinations simply cannot show us, such as cysts or decay below the gumline or within the teeth themselves.

Preventative dentistry is an art and a balance between taking good care of your teeth at home and coming in to see us here at Surprise Smiles- Andrew regularly to let us do our part to keep your smile strong. Every step of the process is equally important. Give us a call and set up an appointment today to get yourself on track to a beautiful and healthy smile.
