Dental Practices in England were given Permission to re-open for certain emergency procedures, from the 8th June 2020.

In Scotland, we heard from the Chief Dental Officer for Scotland on 18th June 2020 that the re-opening of Dental Practices could happen the following week – for Dental Emergencies.

It should be noted that Dental Practices will only be allowed to open ONE surgery, with one Dentist, and only see patients with a pre-arranged appointment, to examine them. We have still been limited to providing Advice, Antibiotics, Analgesics.

The crucial difference from Phase 1 is that we can now actually see our own patients for emergency appointments.
