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.
Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment in NE Calgary, AB
If you go to bed and wake up exhausted, it can have a huge impact on our lives. You could be suffering from sleep apnea, which affects about three percent of the population. That means millions of people are suffering from this disorder – which leads to daytime tiredness despite getting plenty of sleep.
Do I have Sleep Apnea?
If you snore, there’s a possibility that you might have sleep apnea. Snoring on its own is not enough for a diagnosis, however. You should keep an eye on other symptoms if you plan on seeking sleep apnea treatment in NE Calgary, AB at Huntington Family Dental. You might have daytime tiredness or memory fatigue. You might suffer from morning headaches, sore throats, dry mouth, depression, and even mood swings! That doesn’t sound fun at all, does it? You might also have some of the symptoms that are more commonly pointed out by a sleeping partner. These can include gasping, choking, or being extremely quiet during the night.
Go get yourself tested.
The first step to treating sleep apnea is getting tested for it. This will involve a sleep test that can show you what’s causing you to have problems with your nightly slumber. If this ends up being sleep apnea, you can move onto figuring out what to do about it.
What sort of sleep apnea do I have?
There are two main types of sleep apnea: central or obstructive. Central sleep apnea comes from a miscommunication between your mind and your body. Your brain stem is not telling the breathing muscles to properly work while you’re asleep. Obstructive sleep apnea will happen when something is actively blocking your airway while you’re asleep. A soft palate, fatty tissue around your throat, your tongue are common culprits.
Get yourself treated.
There are different types of sleep apnea treatment in Calgary, NE for both sorts of sleep apnea. You can treat central apnea by helping with the underlying risk factors, by switching your meds, CPAP, BPAP or ASV therapy, and by taking specific medications. Obstructive apnea will be treated once your doctor has decided if it’s mild, moderate, or severe. Then they can recommend the right treatment, which could include anything from appliance therapy, CPAP, or even surgery at your doctor or dentist at Huntington Family Dental.
