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,

Intra-Oral Cameras Surprise, AZ


Intraoral Camera in Surprise, AZAt Surprise Smiles, we work hard to make sure your teeth stay in tip top condition. We are committed to adopting proven technologies that will save you time and money. We only adopt technologies that we are certain will help your teeth, which is why we have adopted the intraoral camera. Prevention is the most important aspect when it comes to keeping your mouth healthy, and we have found that by using the intraoral camera, we can educate our patients on how they can keep they mouth healthy!

What is the intraoral camera?


This is a small, toothbrush-shaped camera that we use to take live footage of your mouth. X-rays offer us a great way to take a look at structures inside your mouth that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to see. Similarly, the intraoral camera can show us, and you, what is going on in your mouth from different angles and viewpoints that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to see.

The Reason For The Intraoral Camera


We believe that it is our job to educate you as best we can about what is going on inside your mouth. When you understand what’s happening in your mouth, you will be better prepared to take great care of it. One of the biggest challenges that we have faced over the years leading up to our adoption of the intraoral camera was describing what is going on in our patient's mouths. It can be difficult to use mirrors and descriptions to tell someone about their mouth. With the intraoral camera, we can show you in real time what’s going on in your mouth.

How The Intraoral Camera Works


There are lot’s of technologies out there that you may be familiar with that are similar to the intraoral cameras that we use in our office. Personal, high definition video recorders are fairly similar, but not quite the same. As mentioned above, the intraoral camera is toothbrush shaped and fairly small, you will not even feel anything when we insert it into your mouth. The camera has a wire that comes out the back which feeds it power and relays the video images to a computer that we have at every patient station. We will have a computer monitor that you can view to see inside your mouth as we use the camera to scan.

Regular Cleanings and Examinations Are Important!


Everyone knows that brushing and flossing are critical to making sure your mouth stays healthy and happy. We want to remind you that coming in at least twice a year for a regular cleaning and examination is just as important. During these checkups, we can evaluate your oral health and make sure that things like cavities don’t sneak up on you. We are also able to clean and polish your teeth, which makes it very hard for plaque and tartar to build up.

If you would like to learn more about the intraoral camera, or if you would like to schedule an appointment with us, please call us today at (602) 842-4864.
