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.
Preventative dentistry is the act of taking care of your teeth in order to keep them healthy. This includes avoiding cavities, enamel wear, gum disease, and other dental problems.
There are many types of preventative dentistry in NE Calgary that you can practice. Huntington Family Dental suggests that you brush your teeth daily, floss daily, and keep up with dental cleanings. In order to have optimal mouth health, you should see your dentist regularly.
Always brush your teeth!
Arguably the most important part of maintaining proper oral hygiene is brushing your teeth on a regular basis. It’s recommended to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste that’s been approved by the American Dental Association or the ADA for short. You should replace your toothbrush when the bristles begin to fray or up to four times a year. Also, make sure you’re brushing your tongue to remove bacteria and keep your breath fresh.
Floss every day!
It is recommended to practice daily flossing. This will help to clean between your teeth. Make sure you floss the proper way to maximize the amount of work you’re doing. Ask your dentist at Huntington Family Dental to show you the right way to do it.
Visit the dentist!
Visit your dentist at least once a year, sometimes twice a year for an exam. They can check your teeth and gums for any problems. If there are problems, they’ll be able to treat them right away.
Eat a good diet!
Eating healthy will also help your teeth because you’ll be providing them with the appropriate nutrients. You should also avoid things that cause dental decay like too many sweets and sugary foods. This includes things like white bread. You should also make sure to avoid too much juice, soda, and coffee. When in doubt, have a glass of water!
Everyone can benefit from preventative dentistry in NE Calgary, AB. It’s especially important in children because they’re teeth are still developing. It also sets them up for a lifetime of knowing good habits. You want their teeth to be healthy and their smiles to be beautiful, after all.
