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 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.
Are you missing teeth or have damaged ones? This might affect your self-confidence as everyone wants to have a beautiful smile. Dental crowns in NE Calgary can be a great way to fix gaps and give you the smile that you deserve. They can also help with eating, as they improve chewing.
Huntington Family Dental can offer you various different crown styles. The dentist will work with you to find out what crown is best for your smile. This will be affected by numerous things including your aesthetic preferences, your health, and your budget.
What are crowns?
You might be wondering exactly what a crown is and what it does. It’s actually pretty simple. Crowns are covers that your dentist at Huntington Family Dental will place onto your tooth. It will cause your tooth to return to a normal size, shape, and function. This is in order to restore tooth strength and physical appearance.
Do I need a crown?
You might benefit from a dental crown in NE Calgary if:
Your cavity is just too big to fix with a filling.
You might be missing a tooth and would benefit from a bridge.
You want to cover up a dental implant.
You might have a tooth that is cracked, weakened, or worn down.
You recently were treated for a root canal.
You really want to fix a badly shaped or discolored tooth.
How are they placed?
It usually takes two visits to Huntington Family Dental to complete the procedure for putting a crown in place.
First, the dentist will prep your tooth by taking off the outer portion. This is so the crown will fit. At the same time, the dentist will remove decay. He might add to the core of the tooth if he decides additional support is needed. Then he’ll make a mold so that way an exact model can be created.
Generally, you’ll receive a temporary crown for the time you’re waiting for the crown to be ready. The dentist or lab tech will use your tooth model to craft your custom crown.
Once the crown is ready for use, the dentist will put it in your mouth and adjust it as necessary. When he is happy with its positioning, he will cement it in place.
