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.
Having yellow or other colored stains on your teeth can be an unsightly, embarrassing problem. You might feel like your smile isn’t as great as it could be. Don’t worry, though, you’re not alone. Plenty of people have problems with stains on their teeth and want to get rid of them – even those with great oral hygiene regiments! If you’re thinking about having your teeth whitened at Huntington Family Dental, you should get the facts first.
The reasons behind discolored teeth:
You might be wondering what’s caused the staining on your teeth. There are several things that can contribute to discoloration on your otherwise beautiful smile. Read on to see what can cause yellow or dark stained teeth.
Food and beverages. What you eat and drink has a large impact on the shade of your teeth. Eating sugary food is a big trigger. Tea, wine, and coffee are also common culprits due to the deep color pigments they have that like to stick to the enamel on your teeth.
Tobacco. Cigarettes can be especially detrimental to teeth coloring because of tar. Tar is naturally dark colored. There’s also the nicotine itself. While it does not normally have a color, it can mix with oxygen and form a yellowing substance that can stain teeth.
Age. As enamel grows weaker and thinner as we get older or brush our teeth more, dentin starts to show through.
Medication. Certain meds are known to cause dark tooth coloration.
How teeth whitening in NE Calgary, AB works:
Whitening products work on a fairly simple level. They have bleach in them which will go in and break down stains into smaller pieces. This makes the color on your teeth less concentrated and leads to a whiter smile.
Who it works for :
Make sure you talk to your dentist at Huntington Family Dental before embarking on a mission to whiten your teeth. This is important because no mouth is the same and teeth whitening in NE Calgary, AB won’t work the same on every mouth. Yellow stains, for example, are going to be easier to brighten where brown stains are going to be harder to lighten.
