The American Dental Association (ADA) has asked dentists to defer all elective treatment at this time, and only provide emergency services. This is to help preserve protective equipment (masks, gowns, gloves, etc.) for hospitals and urgent care centers as well as limit the spread of the virus. We are keeping a limited number of locations open to provide emergency dental services, to both help you and reduce the traffic to Emergency Rooms (ERs) and urgent care centers so that they can focus on non-dental emergencies. If you are in pain and need emergency dental treatment, please call (702) 744-8009 and we can assist you right away.

I want to thank Ann Anders and our entire operations team for the quick response to provide the necessary materials and equipment to maximize the protection of the staff and patients despite the challenges we’ve been having with these orders during this unfortunate crisis. Here is the recommendation as per the ADA in regards to the Thermometers and the Hydrogen Peroxide:

  • Take temperature readings as part of their routine assessment of patients before performing dental procedures.
  • Have patients rinse with a 1% hydrogen peroxide solution before each appointment. This will reduce the salivary load of oral microbes.

NOTE: We could only find the 3% hydrogen peroxide in the Henry Schein catalog

Please follow these steps to provide the hydrogen peroxide rinse to the patients before any dental procedure.

  1. Start with a 3% concentration of hydrogen peroxide. Next, combine one-part hydrogen peroxide with two parts water. Your final mix will have a concentration of 1% hydrogen peroxide.
  2. Ask patients to gargle and swish the mixture around in the mouth for 60 seconds.
  3. Spit the solution out after gargling. Don’t try to gargle the mixture for more than 90 seconds.

Thank you,

Bibiana Mosquera, RDH
Director of Hygiene
