Over 600 urgent dental centres remain open across England to support dental patients with their urgent dental care needs through face to face treatment.

All dental practices with an NHS dental contract have been able to open for face to face National Health Service care, including routine care, from 8 June. There are over 6,000 dental practices holding an NHS contract in England. The guidance from NHS England and NHS Improvement to NHS dental contract holders states that the reopening of dental practices must take place in a safe manner and follow the Public Health England and NHS England and NHS Improvement infection prevention and control guidance.
