Open During COVID-19 Pandemic

The team at Northern Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics hope that you and your loved ones are staying healthy and finding gratitude each day as our state and nation confront the COVID-19 pandemic.

Governor Ducey issued a STAY AT HOME order that will be effective on Tuesday, March 31, 2020, and remain in effect until at least April 30, 2020. Essential services, as described by the Governor on March 23, will remain open. Dental offices are considered essential services, and therefore, Northern Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics will continue to treat patients with dental emergencies and essential procedures that come from emergent conditions such as aches and pains, infection, drainage, or broken teeth or crowns. Dr. Stansberry is committed to taking care of our patients so that they can get relief as soon as possible.  If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact us at 602.944.9197 or northernsmiles@gmail.com 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially critical for your health, finances, and the healthcare resources in our community, to make an appointment with a licensed dental care provider rather than visiting an emergency room.

To the healthcare professionals, firefighters, law enforcement, military personnel and first responders working tirelessly to serve our community, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude for your service. We want you to know that the team members and specialists of Northern Smiles are here for you and your families.

We are committed to the highest standards of infection control to mitigate the risk of transmission of all infectious diseases and ensure the safety of our patients and our team members.

It is our privilege to assist in your care.
