What we will need from you:

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

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 crooked teeth or gaps in your teeth, you might have considered braces at some point in your life. As you get older, though, you’ve probably dismissed the idea, telling yourself that adults don’t wear braces because it’s embarrassing or too unsightly. There’s now an option for if you want to improve your smile while not wearing the traditional metal braces. Huntington Family Dental can help you get set up with Invisalign!
What is Invisalign?
Created to be an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign in NE Calgary is mostly invisible, so you don’t have to worry about people constantly asking you about your braces. This is a great option for people who are embarrassed about the idea of having a mouth of metal, no matter what their age is. Braces are intended for fixing misaligned teeth as well as closing gaps that you might have in your mouth. You might have to wear this innovative technology from anywhere from nine to twelve months, all depending on the adjustments to your smile that you’re trying to achieve.
How does Invisalign Work?
3-D modeling coupled with computer technology will be used by the dentist at Huntington Family Dental in order to create aligners that are adjusted to work with your misaligned teeth. Your teeth become slowly straighter as these are changed every fifteen days.
Whereas metal braces are going to be permanently attached to your teeth with wires and brackets during your treatment time, Invisalign has another major advantage. You can take them off when you’re eating or when you’re about to brush your teeth. This is great because it can be difficult to properly follow oral hygiene protocols in braces as they make it rather hard to brush properly.
Even though you can take them out when you want, you still need to make sure you’re following your dentist’s advice, which means you need to wear them for as many hours a day as you’re told if you want to properly fix your teeth’s misalignment.
Invisalign in NE Calgary, AB is not just a cosmetic decision. Having straight teeth helps you chew properly and helps with speaking clearly. It’s a great decision for various reasons that you can learn by talking to a dentist at Huntington Family Dental.
