What's New

Link to Fees Page

The Leigh Smile Center has introduced a New 2017 Dental Implant Fee Schedule, which we believe will make Dental Implants cost-effective for patients. We want our patients to be able to take advantage of the many benefits of Dental Implants.

"A team from the Athlone Institute of Technology in Ireland tested the antibacterial action of coconut oil in its natural state and coconut oil that had been treated with enzymes. The oils were tested against strains of Streptococcus bacteria which are common inhabitants of the mouth. They found that enzyme-modified coconut oil strongly inhibited the growth of most strains of Streptococcus bacteria including Streptococcus mutans — an acid-producing bacterium that is known to be a major cause of tooth decay."

 PERSONAL INFORMATION CONSENT FORM


We are committed to protecting the privacy of our patients’ personal information and to utilizing all personal information in a responsible and professional manner. This document summarizes some of the personal information that we collect, use and disclose. In addition to the circumstances described in this form, we also collect, use and disclose personal information when permitted or required by law.
We collect information from our patients such as names, home address, work address, home telephone numbers, work telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses (collectively referred to as "Contact Information"). Contact Information is collected and used for the following purposes:

Contact Information is disclosed to third-party health benefit providers and insurance companies where the patient has submitted a claim for reimbursement or payment of all or part of the cost of dental treatment, or has asked us to submit a claim on the patient’s behalf. Financial information may be collected in order to make arrangements for the payment of dental services.
We collect information from our patients about their health history, their family health history, physical condition, and dental treatments (collectively referred to as "Medical Information"). Patients’ Medical Information is collected and used for the purpose of diagnosing dental conditions and providing dental treatment.

* To other health care professionals such as a physician if the patient, with their consent, has been referred by us to the other health care professional for either a second opinion or treatment.
If we are ever considering selling all or part of our dental practice, qualified potential purchasers may be granted access, as part of the due diligence process, to patient information in order to verify information important to the potential sale. If this occurs, we will take steps to ensure that the prospective purchaser safeguards all personal information. Dentists are regulated by the Alberta Dental Association and College, which may inspect our records and interview our staff as part of its regulatory activities in the public interest.

Our Personal Information Procedures:

We have appointed a Privacy Officer as our principal advisor and issues manager regarding personal information protection. On your behalf, our staff is trained in personal information protection. We review our information collection procedures and consent forms on an ongoing basis, and we ensure that any contractors we hire who might have access to your personal information also take steps to protect the privacy of your personal information. At the Leigh Smile Center we have a privacy policy in place for patients and employees. The Personal Information Protection Procedures below tell you how we fulfill the commitment to patients in our Privacy Policy at the Leigh Smile Center Dental Health Clinic.

Protection of Your Personal Information in Our Records:

Our records containing your personal information are stored in a secure place. Our electronic records are stored on hardware that is secure. Passwords are used on all of our computers. We take care to protect screen monitors from public viewing in the office. Paper records are transferred outside our office in sealed envelopes by secure methods and with reputable carriers. Telephone discussions with patients in the office are carried on with sensitivity to protecting personal information. Electronic information is transferred in secure files, and sent anonymously wherever possible. We do not share your personal information outside our office for any marketing, promotional, publicity, educational or research purposes without your consent.
Our staff is trained to handle your information only through the protective measures outlined in our privacy procedures. If we hire consultants or contractors who might have access to any of your personal information, we will take steps to ensure that the consultant or contractor takes steps to protect the privacy of your personal information.

Storage and Destruction of Personal information:

We are required by legislation and regulation to keep records containing personal information for specified periods of time. We keep your records for a maximum of 11 years from your last service (as recently mandated by the ADA+C), even if you move from our office. We destroy personal information in paper records by shredding it. We destroy electronic personal information by deleting it. When discarding hardware, we make sure the hard drive is destroyed.

We have also recently implemented a program to provide all our Dental Implant patients with a complete Implant component parts list for their Dental Implant treatment. This list contains the implant manufacturer, implant type with serial numbers, size, and all the prosthetic parts code numbers. Since Dental Implants could potentially last a patient's lifetime, it is important that the patient maintain this information for the future. This will protect the patient after the 11 year period for maintaining records.

All services are being provided by General Dentists.

PLEASE NOTE: There are no "Specialists" in Dental Implant treatments in Alberta or Canada. No Dentist in Alberta, including Oral Surgeons, Periodontists,
Prosthodontists, Orthodontists, or Endodontists, etc. is allowed to call him or herself a "Specialist" in the area of Dental Implants, or to say that
they "Specialize" in Dental Implants. (To do so is false and misleading, according to the Alberta Dental Association + College, and violates the ADA+C's
Code of Ethics). Dental "Specialists" in other areas of Dentistry are NOT also "Specialists" in Implant Dentistry.
