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,

Digital X-rays Surprise, AZ

Digital X-rays are offered at Surprise Smiles in Surprise, AZ
X-rays are a fantastic tool that allows us to see portions of your teeth that we otherwise wouldn’t be able to see at all. We are able to see between teeth, under the gums, and even look at the bone and ligament structures with X-rays. We are passionate about finding problems before they have a chance to become irreversible so that we can help you to prevent them altogether. Because we are so committed to the health of your teeth and gums we have adopted a new system of X-rays called digital X-rays. This system is faster and more powerful than traditional X-rays and gives us the added advantage of being able to educate you on what is happening in your mouth.

What are X-rays used for?

We use X-rays to see things we normally would never be able to with the naked eye. We can see between teeth and into the different structures and faculties of the mouth using X-rays. X-rays can even help us to spot areas where the enamel on your teeth is starting to wear thin. These areas are at higher risk for tooth decay, and with the advanced warning that X-rays give us we can alert you before a cavity even gets a chance to start.

Digital X-rays have the added advantage of not having to be processed and developed the way traditional X-rays do. This allows us to share your X-rays with you immediately after taking them in beautiful high definition. By sharing with you the things that we see in your X-ray, you can take better care of your teeth in between visits to our office.

Your Regular Dental Visits

Everyone knows that the best way to take care of your teeth is to brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. The part that a lot of people regularly forget is the twice-yearly trip to our office for an examination and professional cleaning. It's terribly important that you come in to be seen by us at least twice a year so that we can try to catch issues like cavities before they get too big to prevent.

We usually only take one series of X-rays per year, so if you have already had X-rays done this year your visit probably won't start out with an X-ray. If you haven't had X-rays taken this year, we will begin your visit with that. We will have you put on a lead vest to protect you from radiation. The digital X-ray machine puts out only one fifth of the radiation that a traditional X-ray does, so there is absolutely no worry about radiation exposure. We will then have you bite on some X-ray strips and we will take a series of X-rays of your mouth.

We will then be able to take you to the examination chair, where we can go over the X-rays with you and discuss any areas that we think might be an issue.

Please call us today at (602) 842-4864 to schedule an appointment.
