As mandated by the Alberta Dental Association and the Provincial Government of Alberta, dentists must postpone all elective procedures until further notice.

Effective immediately, Higson Dental Group will only be seeing patients on an emergency basis.

If you have a dental emergency, please call us at 780-532-4661 and speak to someone in our office.

We will not be accepting walk-ins.

In-Office Health Precautions

While health and safety is always the top priority for us, we’re taking even more precautions during this coronavirus pandemic. We’ve decided to close our office to walk-in patients and will require all emergency procedures to be scheduled over the phone.  Beyond our usual in-office health and safety procedure, we’ll be taking these additional steps:

  • No handshaking (or touching outside of what is required by the procedure)
  • We will not be accepting drinks or food from patients
  • Dental rooms are wiped down before & after each patient
  • All instruments are sterilized before & after each patient
  • Reception and bathroom are wiped down at least twice daily
  • Our hands are washed between patients with antibacterial soap

We’re also asking all patients to:

  • Report immediately if you come in contact with someone diagnosed with Coronavirus
  • Call prior to your appointment if showing any signs of sickness
