Emergency Dental Care
March 17, 2020
In light of the current crisis, we are only able to provide emergency dental treatment at this time (until further notice) as mandated by the Alberta Dental Association & College (ADA&C) to all dental practices in Alberta.
YES, we are still open to treating emergency cases, after a proper assessment.
The public has been asked not to visit Urgent Care for a dental emergency during the COVID-19 crisis.
Please contact our office at 403-981-3685 to get the help you need.
Safety is of paramount importance
Your safety, as patients, and the safety of the community are our absolute top priority.
We are continuing to maintain the highest standards of sterilization and disinfection at our office.
All staff are symptom-free and following all of the recommended practices to prevent the risk and spread of COVID-19 infection, as recommended by Alberta Health Services and others.
Any patients wanting to receive emergency treatment will need to complete a detailed emergency screening questionnaire before being permitted into the building.
We’re here to support you
We are so happy we can keep our office open for emergency dental care, to help resolve your distress from pain, acute facial/dental trauma or infection.
We look forward to treating patients with necessary and routine dental treatment when it is deemed safe to do so.
Thank you for your understanding.
Emergency Dental Services we are offering
The Alberta Dental Association & College (ADA&C) has directed all dentists in Alberta that “emergency dental care may include treatment of oral-facial trauma, significant infection, prolonged bleeding or pain which cannot be managed by over-the-counter medications.”
Further, “It is appropriate to provide needed care that, if left untreated, becomes a more significant burden on our health care resources and significantly compromises patient health.”
We are following this guidance. If you are experiencing pain, infection or trauma which you believe to be a dental emergency, we would be happy to discuss your situation with you, as well as your treatment options at this time.
Please reach out to us at 403-981-3685 at any time.
