Our commitment at Desert Sun Smiles is to create an exceptional and unique dental experience. We strive to be the best dental office you have ever visited. This is reflected in our focus on relationships. We want to get to know you both as a person and as a patient. We want to discover with you what are your interests and goals are for your dental health and help you achieve your goals.
Delivering state of the art dental care is our promise to every patient that is part of our practice. This is reflected in our commitment to learning and staying current on the newest dental techniques and technologies. As a team we dedicate hundreds of hours every year to dental continuing education.
Our office incorporates many new, but carefully selected technologies designed to improve both your experience and the quality of the care we provide. Last year we incorporated digital x-rays which allow us to obtain more accurate images for improved diagnosis with dramatically reduced amounts of radiation exposure. For many years Dr. Brady has utilized a computerized anesthetic delivery system which almost completely eliminates the discomfort of getting numb for a dental procedure. In addition to X-rays we utilize digital photographs of your teeth that allow us to observe changes over time more accurately.
At Desert Sun Smiles we see your dental health as a key part of your overall health. We take a comprehensive approach, looking at both your current dental needs but more importantly your overall dental health with a strong focus on prevention. A comprehensive approach includes diagnosing & treating your dental health (such as cavities and gum disease), the structure of your teeth (cracked or fractured teeth, damaged fillings), function (TMJ concerns, facial pain, sleep apnea) and the beauty of your teeth (bleaching, veneers, Invisalign clear braces). As part of our comprehensive approach and belief in excellence we incorporate technologies like Doppler for TMJ diagnosis and digital photography for cosmetics. We look forward to discussing all of these areas that are of interest or importance to you.
Meet Our Staff
Each member of Dr. Brady’s team has extensive training and experience in dentistry—but that’s not all! We are committed to delivering a truly different dental care experience, making sure every client feels safe, comfortable, and welcomed in our offices.
The role of treatment coordinator has Donna wear many hats in our practice. Her twenty plus years’ experience in dentistry allow her to support our patients through the treatment process with skill and grace. You may encounter Donna on your first phone call to our office and she will help you schedule your initial appointment. Dr. Brady and Donna work very closely to help you understand your treatment recommendations, fees and the role your dental insurance will play. Donna is also very knowledgeable about the procedures we offer and can often be heard helping a patient understand what an appointment will be like. Originally from Pennsylvania Donna and her family have lived all over the world finally settling in Phoenix they are here to stay. Her passions are her two sons, her two grand-babies and Nascar.
Connie brings her unique gifts of caring and compassion to her work as a dental hygienist. No matter how far across the city of Phoenix our patients move, they make the drive to continue to see Connie for their dental cleanings. Patients enjoy working with Connie to develop a routine at home designed specifically to allow them to keep their smile healthy. A native of Chicago, Connie and her family have lived on the west side of Phoenix for many years and enjoy being an active part of the community. Dental hygiene is just one of the ways Connie expresses her creativity and skill; she is also an incredibly talented painter and craftsman. If you want to get Connie talking about one of her passions, ask her about her dog!
Angel has a unique ability to be thorough and gentle at the same time. Patients often exclaim that she is the best hygienist they have ever seen. She gets the dedication award in our office as she drives the furthest to be a part of the incredible team at Desert Sun Smiles. Her curiosity about dentistry means you can sometimes find her observing a procedure with Dr. Brady when not treating a patient of her own. You will enjoy partnering with Angel to improve the health and beauty of your teeth. Outside of the office, Angel’s focus shifts to raising her son and pursuing her personal interests. Don’t let her scrubs fool you – she loves clothes, makeup and knows the best ways to accessorize!
Chelly – Clinical Assistant
Chelly brings both her knowledge of dentistry and her love of people to her role as a clinical assistant. An integral part of the office for over ten years, Chelly has incredible relationships with many of our patients and it is not uncommon to observe her deep in conversation catching up on life events since the last time one of our patients was in. When it comes to dentistry, Chelly is uniquely qualified and an incredible asset during dental procedures. She loves to bake and often tempts the rest of the team with scrumptious deserts. One of Chelly’s favorite times of the year is Christmas, and she loves it when we switch to holiday music in the office after Thanksgiving.
