Harbor Health announces closure of Harbor Community Dental Center – Provincetown

2nd June 2020

Our priority is to help our Provincetown patients get the dental care they need

We have made the difficult decision to not reopen Harbor Community Dental Center-Provincetown, located at 49 Harry Kemp Way.

Outer Cape Health Services (OCHS) began offering dental services at the location in 2010. After experiencing financial and operational challenges related to running a small dental program, OCHS and Harbor Health agreed to work together to try to sustain the program in 2018.

We hoped Harbor’s larger and more established dental program could overcome these challenges. The resources Harbor put in place, however, did not sufficiently improve the financial losses that OCHS had been experiencing.

We want to help our Provincetown patients get the dental care they need!

For routine and non-urgent dental care, our Provincetown patients can still see Harbor Health’s dental care team in Hyannis or Dennis.

Harbor Health has a dental practice at Harbor Community Health Center – Hyannis.  Construction on the new location for Ellen Jones Community Dental Center at Patriot Square in Dennis is also almost complete.

For patients receiving an on-going dental treatment, we will continue to provide the treatment in Hyannis and Dennis. 

We are currently collaborating with OCHS on transportation for patients in need.  RTA also has a stop in front of Ellen Jones at Patriot Square.

Hyannis will open for routine appointments such as dental cleaning in June and Dennis will open in July.

For emergency dental care, call (508) 778-5499 , Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Saturday, 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM.

We can help you with a teledental video or phone appointment with a member of our dental team or schedule an in-person appointment at one of our dental locations.

If you decide you would like to move to another dental care provider, you can download the medical records request form and follow the instructions to make a request.  PLEASE NOTE: You do not need to request medical records if you plan to stay with Harbor Health.

We are committed to helping our friends and neighbors in Provincetown and hope we will continue to be a part of keeping you healthy.

Please call the Provincetown dental center at (508) 778-5499 should you need additional information about going to our Hyannis or Dennis locations for care.

Thank you for your understanding!
