CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE AND INFORMATION 

Dimock Adult Primary Care has a highly experienced staff of internal medicine and family medicine providers (doctors and nurse practitioners) with an extensive range of expertise. The Dimock Center works in close partnership with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC). Our affiliation with BIDMC enables Dimock to host BIDMC medical residents in one of the largest community-based residency programs in the city.

We offer integrated medical and behavioral health care, with a unique, innovative behavioral health program that affords rapid access to mental health services, including therapy, substance use counseling, and psychiatry, all within the structure of the Adult Medicine clinic. We provide a varied and deep level of comprehensive, patient-centered care, working in collaboration with other clinics and support services within The Dimock Center to benefit the individuals we serve.

Some of our on-site specialty services include mammograms, podiatry, and infectious disease care (including hepatitis C and HIV care), and addictions services. Services include eye care and a fully stocked optical shop; dental care, an on-campus pharmacy, and the full range of Dimock center support services.

Community Care

Our Community Care team continues to provide intensive support services and medical care to people living with HIV/AIDS.  We work to reach out into the community to increase our care to the people who need it, and provide help for them to continue the best course of care for themselves and enable their self-sufficiency.

The Dimock Center’s Medical Case Managers (MCMs) and Psychosocial Advocates help clients to navigate through our multidisciplinary clinic, as well as to outside facilities. Our Nurse Medical Managers provide medical care and are in close contact with the MCMs and Psychosocial Advocates. All clients also have access to support groups, educational meetings and referrals. The comprehensive care we deliver seeks to help our Community Care patients keep their minds and bodies strong. Our staff works closely together to improve the lives of those we serve.

Specialty Clinics and Services

Our Community Care patients benefit from services which include: medical case management, psychosocial advocacy, nurse medical management, primary care, HIV specialty care, OB/GYN, eye care, dental, nutrition, mental health, and  housing services.

Integrated testing for Hepatitis C, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphilis and HIV is provided by Community Care and available at various times and locations within the Roxbury community.

Our services are provided in English, Spanish, and Haitian-Creole.

Dental

Our Dental team is committed to providing quality treatment for patients of all ages, including specialty pediatric dental care. We work closely with primary care providers across Dimock’s campus to support patients and families – from Pediatrics and Behavioral Health to Child and Family Services, to ensure that dental health plays a role in all patients’ lives.

Our Services
Our approach to your treatment starts with carefully listening to you.  Then, after a complete and thorough examination, we review and discuss the diagnosis and treatment options available to you. At our office, we know that our patients care as much about the appearance of their smiles as they do their oral health. That is why we are proud to offer a variety of comprehensive dental services for adults and children:

– Routine exams, x-rays and cleaning

– Periodontal (gum health) exams and deep cleanings

– Oral cancer screenings

– Filling of cavities

– Sealants

– Extractions

– Root canals

– Complete and partial dentures

– One-visit crowns

Pediatric Dental Care
Good dental habits and cavity prevention must begin early.  Though baby teeth last for only a short time, good dental hygiene habits last a lifetime and contribute to sound overall health. Visits to our pediatric dentist ensure that oral health becomes a natural part of children’s lives, and our friendly staff of dentists, hygienists, dental assistants and dental externship students make it easy. We measure our success not only by the quality of our services and care, but also by the quality of the relationships we develop with our patients.  We invite you to be a part of our family. We offer urgent hours and walk-Ins for Urgent Care as well as weekend hours.  Spanish speaking dentists are available. For information, please call 617.442.8800, ext. 1237, 1220 or 1217.
