Introducing Joanna 

Joanna joined our fantastic team at YPD in October and we'd like to introduce her to you.

She grew up in southern Poland and graduated from Wroclaw Medical University in 1998. Joanna completed her VT training in Wroclaw and worked in Dental Practices in Poland for 5 years before moving to the UK. She moved to Cumbria in 2005 and then to Carlisle in 2012.

Married with 2 children, Joanna's interests include playing the violin, classical music, ballet, opera and theatre. She enjoys family life and is happy with a good book preferably on the beach in the sunshine!

Joanna's professional interests are in orthodontics, cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry and providing inhalation sedation for anxious patients.

You'll see her here on a Monday. We invite you to come and meet her :-).

We were over the moon to make it to the finals in the Carlisle Living Awards.

Congratulations to all of the other finalists and the winners.

We're proud to be a part of such a positive event, celebrating our fantastic city!

Patient Comments

​I always enjoy a fantastic experience at York Place. The staff are always very kind and friendly. The advice and the service is top notch!
I always get the most amazing compliments on my smile and that is 100% due to the wonderful treatments and care from York Place.
Rachel was so lovely today, cleaned my teeth beautifully and gave me some great advice to keep my teeth at their best.
Absolutely love coming to the dentist, I was always afraid when I was younger but the team at York Place make you feel so welcome, it's such a happy place!
I will definitely be bringing my children here as I want them to enjoy the dentist and not to be scared.
Every visit is very thorough and I know my teeth are getting 5* treatment.

​Kids Private Orthodontics

This young patient was unhappy about the gap between his teeth. His mum got in touch with us to find out how we could help. After a course of discreet braces (appointments out of school hours) He is very happy with the result.

Call us at the practice for more information about private kid's plans, orthodontics or anything else.

Well Done Abbie

A huge well done to our wonderful Lead Dental Nurse, Abbie Willmott on passing her radiography exam with an A result!

We had no doubt that she could do it.

An addition to her existing skills which include sedation nursing, Treatment Coordination and team leadership.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding uses the latest tooth-colored cosmetic resin in a variety of innovative ways. From a simple small repair to a complete composite resin veneer on a damaged tooth, bonding provides a robust and highly aesthetic solution.

The resin matches the color of your teeth to ensure a natural result so that nobody will notice any difference, and cosmetic bonding can be a more affordable alternative to some cosmetic dental treatments like veneers. Commonly, we combine cosmetic bonding with a course of tooth-whitening which allows us to provide brighter, whiter, straighter teeth with a lighter touch and at a lower price.


A very warm welcome to our new Patient Coordinators Sammy McDonald & Laura McPake. They will be working alongside Ria Forbes, our Front of House Manager to ensure that things are running smoothly and that our patients have the best experience.

Oral Health Education

In April 2018 we launched our new membership plans for children, teens and young adults. Our aim is to help your child to achieve the best possible dental health for life and where possible, eliminate the need for fillings in the future. OHE appointments are a foundation element of our young person's membership plans and each appointment is tailored to the individual needs of the patient. Our aim is to make visiting the dentist an enjoyable experience. Younger children will receive a healthy mouth pack and rewards including toys and stickers from our treat box.

Elly's role is to work with both adults and children to help improve their oral health.

Areas covered might include:

• Oral hygiene instruction
• Diet advice
• How to avoid acid erosion
• Fluoride coating to prevent decay

We are delighted to be one of the few dental practices in the county to offer appointments with an Oral Health Educator to our plan members. We pride ourselves on being able to offer the best in preventative dentistry. We want all of our patients to have a healthy mouth for life!
