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.
Heading in for a root canal treatment at Huntington Family Dental? You might be scared and anxious about what’s going to happen. Just the sound of it is terrifying, after all. Having answers to your questions can help put your mind at ease, though, and allow you to prepare for this appointment.
First of all, you might be wondering what the doctor is going to be doing during the appointment. While performing a root canal, your doctor will be focused on removing all infected pulp from your infected tooth or teeth. This is done by drilling into the tooth. The dentist will then work to clean it out of all pulp and then they will begin shaping the inside and then sealing it so you can avoid problems in the future.
Sometimes just a filling is necessary. On occasion, though, you’ll need more than that. Your dentist at Huntington Family Dental might have to recommend a second visit to fit a crown onto your tooth or teeth. This will help protect it so that way you can once more use it to chew food without experiencing pain.
If you need a crown, your dentist will make a mold of your teeth after all the pulp has been removed. A technician will then use that impression to create the crown that’ll be applied during your follow up visit. Sometimes your root canal dentist in NE Calgary, AB may use a temporary crown while you wait for the follow-up.
Holding your mouth open for hours while your dentist works in your mouth sounds uncomfortable and painful. Fortunately, you’ll be numb from a local anesthetic. You won’t be feeling a thing. You might ask about listening to music while it’s happening to help the time go by faster.
If your dentist recommends a root canal treatment in NE Calgary, AB, it’s best just to go in and get it over with before the damage gets worse. It can also help prevent further complications from happening. Having a root canal is never fun, but it can be necessary. After all, you want to be able to chew normally and then enjoy a pain-free mouth, right?
