We are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you, very soon! We will be opening our clinic for all your dental care needs on June 1st. Until then, we are still available for any emergency and urgent dental care you may require.
Our office will have a number of changes designed around giving you a safe, efficient and comfortable experience.
Here’s what to expect:
To book an appointment, please follow the steps below:
Have you experienced a fever, cough, runny nose or difficulty breathing in the last two weeks, as we will need to know prior to booking?
Have you travelled outside of Alberta within the last 14 days?
Have you been diagnosed with covid19 or come in contact with a known covid 19 case?
What we will need from you:
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment and call the front desk at 403-295-9335. Please wait outside of the clinic in your vehicle and when you call us we will complete our Covid 19 screening questionnaire with you. We will then let you know when we are ready to see you. We are limiting access to our clinic to facilitate proper social distancing. Please also note that there will be no access to our washroom at this time to facilitate better infection control
Please come to your appointment wearing a mask.
Be prepared for us to take your temperature at the time of your visit using a no-contact thermometer
Be prepared to fill out a covid health questionnaire and consent for treatment form when you arrive.
If you have changes to your insurance, please call the office ahead of time to update this information.
Accompaniment of patients will be limited to one essential caregiver and one parent of minors; all others will be asked to wait in their vehicle outside the clinic.
What the clinic is doing to ensure your safety:
Enhanced cleaning methods with approved sanitization products
Hand Sanitization station-please clean your hands before your treatment
Staggered appointment times to allow for cleaning in between patients
Tap payments (no cash payments will be accepted at this time)
Plexiglas barrier at the front desk to minimize exposure between staff and patient.
All team members will be pre-screened before and when they arrive to work to ensure they are healthy to work. Any team member that does not pass the screening will be asked to go home. We are doing this to ensure we are keeping you and all our team members safe. All team members will be wearing the appropriate PPE at all times and employing high standards of hand hygiene and infection control
All service personnel and couriers will be screened and asked to sanitize when they arrive and all deliveries will be sprayed and stored to sanitize
The above changes may take some time to get used to and may seem overwhelming, but we are making them because the health of our patients and staff remains our top priority.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you and appreciate your support to help maintain a safe environment in our clinic.
If you have a child, you want to do everything you can to promote health and happiness. This includes encouraging good oral hygiene. That doesn’t just mean brushing their teeth and flossing, though. The sooner a child begins seeing a pediatric dentist in Calgary, NE, the healthier their mouth will stay all throughout their lives. Early childhood checkups will help to prevent cavities and tooth decay. These things can lead to pain in their mouths, trouble focusing, and other medical problems such as periodontal disease. Children who have nice, healthy teeth will be able to easily chew their foods, learn to speak properly and clearly, and be able to smile with confidence.
Every child should visit a children’s dentistry in NE Calgary, AB – Huntington Family Dental by the time they’re one year old – or as soon as they get their first tooth in. This is called a “well baby visit” and will help you better understand how to care for your child’s teeth as well as help them remain cavity free through their adolescence.
First example, the children’s dentists in NE Calgary at Huntington Family Dental will see many young children who have cavities that have formed from falling asleep while drinking out of a bottle of milk or one of juice. The dentist can explain to you why this might cause dental decay, why you should encourage your child to begin drinking their milk, their water, and their juice from a cup instead, and how to brush teeth in a youngster.
Pediatric Dentists in Calgary, NE will also urge mothers to wean their child off of on-demand nighttime breastfeeding after their child’s first teeth have come through.
Children should be encouraged to brush their teeth for at least two minutes twice a day using fluoride toothpaste. As a parent, you should help your child brush until they’re able to do it by themselves. You can help encourage them by singing a song and making tooth brushing a fun activity.
You should also promote teeth cleaning right after a child drinks juice or eats candy. This will help prevent cavities as well. When they get older, you can look into dental sealants which will go on the back molars where cavities are most likely to form.
