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.
For several generations, dentists have used amalgam (silver) fillings in NE Calgary to fix up decayed teeth. Though these fillings are completely safe and very affordable, more and more people are now choosing to have white fillings to help their smile retain its physical appearance. These fillings are composite resin, and before you choose them, take a look at all the options available.
Cast Gold Fillings
Gold fillings are very durable because gold doesn’t corrode. Gold is used to make inlays and onlays sometimes. These fillings can last for over fifteen years, though they take two appointments to place on. First, the dentist at Huntington Family Dental will take out any decay, prep your teeth, and make the necessary impressions. He’ll send this to a dental lab to make the filling. Once this is done, at your next appointment, the gold is cemented to the tooth. These can be very expensive, though!
Amalgam Fillings in NE Calgary
Amalgams are made of several different metals which include tin, copper, silver, mercury, and zinc. They are a durable and affordable option. However, they can deteriorate over time, and stain the enamel of the remaining tooth. They are silver in color which is very noticeable therefore they aren’t usually used on front teeth.
White Fillings in NE Calgary
The composite resin option, also known as white feelings, is a combination of plastics and tiny glass particles. They’re great for fixing up cavities, but they have more benefits than just that. They’re also able to fix the shape of a misshapen tooth or change the color of your teeth. The process is so simple that it only takes one appointment at Huntington Family Dental. First, the dentist will choose a color that best matches the rest of your teeth. Then he will remove any decay that’s forming. Then it’s time to use a special light to harden the filling material onto your tooth. It will be shaped appropriately and then polished. This helps it to be smooth and less likely to stain.
White fillings are a great choice because they are almost impossible to distinguish once they’re on your teeth. They are strong and durable and will last upwards of five years.
