The dental care team at Harbor Health is happy to share that construction on the new location for Ellen Jones Community Dental Center is now complete! Our new and expanded location for Ellen Jones will OPEN SOON at Patriot Square, Route 134, in South Dennis.
Our new location is close to Route 6 and the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority has a regular stop at Patriot Square.
The dental center will continue to offer routine and urgent/emergency dental care services, as well as help applying for health insurance and a sliding scale of fees. We will also continue to accept MassHealth (Medicaid) for all ages, Health Safety Net, and most commercial insurance plans.

What Is Ellen Jones And Why Is It Moving?
In the late 1990s, a group of concerned citizens and public health advocates asked Harbor Health for help. At the time, thousands of lower and outer Cape Cod residents had no access to affordable dental care. Either they had no insurance or there were no dental practices that accepted their insurance.
Not only did the situation put their physical health at risk, but it also had negative consequences for their social and economic well-being.
Harbor opened the non-profit Ellen Jones Community Dental Center inside Cape Cod Regional Technical High School (CCT) in 2000. In addition to providing dental services for patients, Harbor also started a unique collaboration with the school’s dental assisting program. Program students worked alongside the dental care team at Ellen Jones, developing the skills they learned in the classroom.
To meet the demands of growing enrollment, CCT shared their plans to move to a new school building at the end of the 2019-2020 school year. The team at Ellen Jones began looking for a new location about a year ago. The additional space at Patriot Square allowed us to expand to 8 exam rooms – so we can offer more appointments!
Our new location is also close to CCT and we plan to continue our partnership with the school’s dental assisting program.
When Will the Dental Center Open?
We plan to open soon in July! If you have an urgent dental question or emergency issue, we can help you now with a video/phone or in-person appointment at our dental center in Hyannis. Just call us at Ellen Jones at (508) 778-5400 for assistance.

Our dental practice follows all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. We will closely monitor any additional infection control or personal protection equipment policies coming from the CDC and make the changes necessary to keep everyone safety.
