If you have a dental emergency that requires immediate attention; please call our office at 403.800.9907 and leave your name and number. We will continue to monitor the phones and will call you back immediately.
Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time. Be safe, act wise and may god bless you.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is describing the current COVID-19 event as critical and is asking everyone to get involved in this massive effort to keep the world safe. I am monitoring the COVID-19 public health crisis carefully and while the risk to the general public is low, I still believe in being proactive to ensure the utmost safety of our patients.
Here at No7 Dental, my staff and I want to assure you that our number one priority has always been the safety and well-being of our patients, employees, families, and the community. Since our inception, we continue to implement the most stringent infection control protocols to ensure the prevention of our patients being exposed to harmful pathogens.
No.7 Dental will continue to develop, update and share guidance with our employees from the Alberta Dental Association so they are fully informed on how to protect themselves, their families and our patients against transmission of the virus. Rests assure that while we remain focused on the health and safety of our employees, families and patients, we also are focused on continued service. We will remain open to meet our scheduled appointments and to manage any dental emergencies that arise during this time.
We are taking the necessary precautions to maintain a safe working environment. We have taken steps to make sure we can continue to deliver the high level of quality, excellence and timeliness you expect from us during these unique circumstances.
As we navigate this time of uncertainty together, I want to reaffirm No.7 Dental’s commitment to our patients. As you are aware, this is an evolving situation, and we will share more information as it becomes available.
We hope that you and your loved ones are well, and we are here if you need us.

To all our valued patients & friends,
I wanted to send you an update on the status of the reopening of the clinic. The Alberta government has planned phased opening for all dental offices, starting May 4th. At this time, we await direction from the Alberta Dental Association & College (ADA&C) as to the specific guidelines for this reopening to ensure patient and worker safety. The ADA&C is hard at work to develop these guidelines. I am confident details will be available this coming week. Until these guidelines have been specified, all dental offices in Alberta are only available for emergency treatments and services.
The guidelines will include the type of measures needed to protect staff and patients. They will also detail whether our supplies of PPE will be adequate. It could be mid-May before we can see patients, and even then it will be at a reduced number of patients per day. Some treatments will require different levels of PPE than other but I will explain in future updates. Your safety and quality of care is my number one concern, so I ask for your patience and understanding during this process.
The administration staff have accurate records of all missed and cancelled appointments and will start contacting patients within the week to re-schedule appointments. This will take some time so your patience is greatly appreciated. Again, my team and I are still available for all dental emergencies so please do not hesitate to contact our office if you need urgent dental care.
I will continue to keep you updated as things progress. Be safe, act wise and may god bless you.
Dr. Khairi on behalf of the entire No.7 Dental team
