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:

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.
It is imperative to understand which sorts of injuries will mandate emergency dental care. This will help you make sure you and your family’s teeth are properly taken care of while at the same time avoiding unnecessary visits to the local emergency room. Unfortunately, accidents can occur at any point during the night or day. Some teeth injuries can be treated during Huntington Family Dental’s normal hours, while others require immediate attention.
Some of the normal types of oral injuries can include cracked teeth, knocked out teeth, and broken teeth. These can occur from chomping down on food that is just too hard, a fall, a sports occurrence, or any other accident. You need to consider how bad the injury is as well as the location of the tooth in your mouth before deciding whether or not the minor fracture or chipped tooth can wait until morning to call the dentist at Huntington Family Dental.
If the crack is bad enough or a significant portion of the tooth is missing, or the tooth has suffered nerve damage, or if one or more teeth are knocked completely out, you should definitely find immediate medical help.
While waiting for medical assistance, you should handle a knocked-out tooth as minimally as possible. Try and put the lost tooth back into the socket. Bite down on dampened gauze or even a tea bag. Just don’t accidentally swallow your tooth.
If the tooth won’t stay in the socket while you’re seeking out medical attention, you should clean it off the remove any dirt or blood and place it in milk or saliva while waiting for a professional dentist or doctor to provide you with help. Apply a wet, cold compress to the socket that will help with any bleeding that might occur.
If the problem is not as simple as broken teeth or knocked out teeth, you might not know if you should call a doctor. For example, you might experience really bad tooth pain that comes with an abscess. Even if you do feel like you should seek out emergency care, try calling Huntington Family Dental first for it has the best emergency dentist in Calgary, NE. We might have an appointment slot open for emergency dental care at our emergency dentistry in NE Calgary, AB.
