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.
A laser is a tool that can be used by dentists in Huntington Family Dental. It will produce an intense, narrow string of light energy. When this light energy contacts tissue, it will cause a reaction that can be used to shape or remove tissue.
Laser dentistry started in 1990. Lasers are considered to be an effective and safe treatment for a variety of different dental procedures and are sometimes used at the same time as other dental instruments. Dental lasers are used for some of the following procedures:
They can reduce the discomfort that comes from a cold sore.
They can be used to expose erupted wisdom teeth that are only partially through the gum line.
They can remove muscle attachments that are limiting appropriate movement.
They can help manage gum tissues while making impressions for procedures such as crown placement.
They can help remove overgrown tissue that’s caused by specific medications.
They can perform biopsy techniques.
They can remove inflamed gum tissue and help in treating various gum diseases.
They can reshape or remove gum and bone for a crown lengthening process.
They can help with treating infected pulp during root canals.
They can help make tooth whitening procedures faster.
There are many benefits to using a dental laser. Dentists at Huntington Family Dental might not have to use drills or give anesthesia during certain procedures which allows for you to enjoy a nicer and more relaxed dental process. They are also more precise. They can reduce symptoms and increase healing times that are generally associated with more traditional procedures, they can reduce bacteria growth in gum tissue that’s diseased and in any cavities you might have, and they can help control bleeding during dental surgery.
If used properly by your dentist at Huntington Family Dental, lasers are just as safe as any other dental instrument. Similarly, to how you would wear your sunglasses to protect eyes from exposure to the sun, your dentist will ask that you put on special sunglasses that will help protect your eyes from the laser’s light.
If you are wondering if laser treatment is right for you, just ask your dentist. He can recommend it if laser dentistry in NE Calgary, AB is appropriate for your procedure.
