As you may have seen on the news, dental practices will be allowed to open on the 8 June. Although it was announced at the Prime Minister’s press conference today, for the dental profession it has come out of the blue, as this morning the Chief Dental Officer of England said that it would be a gradual and phased return and no date had been set. The difficulty we have with reopening is there is little or no guidance on how we can return to work practically and safely. There is also the well documented lack or limited availability of appropriate PPE. Over the weekend, all the practices in the hub will be looking into what we can do to ensure we can prepare our practices correctly for our safe return to clinical treatment, ensuring the health and safety of ourselves, our staff and more importantly our loyal and wonderful patients. We are hoping over the next few days there will be some more clear information and a standard operating procedure from the relevant authorities that all practices should adhere to.
Please only contact the surgery if you have any dental problems and we will be in touch with you to arrange your routine appointments when we have fully returned. Keep looking at our websites and Facebook pages for up to date information over the next few days.
Once again we must thank you all for your continued support and understanding at this unique and difficult time.
Keep safe and hopefully see you all soon

PLEASE NOTE THAT from the 8th june, we will be able to treat all dental emergencies. Any other APPOINTMENTs HAVE BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Thorpe Dental Group have set up an Emergency Dental Service, to ensure that our fantastic loyal patients can access an Urgent Dental Centre with an emergency that simply cannot wait until we reopen normally.  

If anyone has an dental emergency then they can contact the practice on 01904 706795.

We are also working alongside 12 other practices in York, so any person presenting with an emergency can contact their own practice and their dentist will be able to decide if a referral to our Woodthorpe Practice for treatment is appropriate.

To help control the spread of COVID-19, this service is currently only available for trauma, severe toothache or swelling, however please still contact us or your own practice if you require advice or have any other concerns.  

Both our Bishopthorpe and Copmanthorpe practices still remain closed.

If you urgently need assistance, please call on 01904 706795.

Please only call us if you have urgent pain or swelling. If you have and appointment booked at any of our practices, then one of our team will be in-touch.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and will endeavor to resume normal services as soon as possible. 

We would like to thank you all for your understanding and continued support during this difficult time.
