To acknowledge its achievements, the Dorchester House has been awarded $7 million in stimulus funding as well as numerous other grants to fund its expansion and continued distribution of services.
The Dorchester House is an all-in-one package for everything from dental and optometry to urgent care, in one convenient location. We continuously strive for clinical excellence, and to that goal, we offer several services administered by our talented and dedicated staff to make your visit with us memorable.
The unique Acupuncture services offered here – instead of billing the patient individually for acupuncture services, acupuncture at the Dorchester House is administered by trained doctors who can then bill it to the patient’s insurance plan. Our skilled team can practice acupuncture on all adults, including pregnant women and teens. Learn More
Adolescent Health Services
The Dorchester House never turns away adolescents in need of care simply because of lack of experience or insurance. We work to treat them as adults and help guide them through and explain the health care process.
With its background as a settlement house, the Dorchester House has a rich history of providing a variety of health and wellness services to the public. We understand that health care stretches beyond the narrow scope of scheduled health visits, and we work with the community to ensure that a patient also maintains superior financial health, a breadth of community activities and support groups, and the benefit of being part of the largest network of health centers in the area.
Dot House has a multitude of parenting programs and support groups – we have two groups for moms, one in English, one in Vietnamese. We also have Dot Dads, which is our support group for new fathers to give guidance and advice to each other.
