Community Care

Our Community Care team provides intensive support services and medical care to people living with HIV/AIDS.  Through our outreach in the community, we strive to help more people access their best course of care and enable their self-sufficiency.

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

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. 2005.
