Programs & Centers

The Harold Diner Special Care Dentistry Center (SCDC)

An integral part of CERC, the Harold Diner Special Care Dentistry Center was founded in 1965 by Dr. Harold Diner. Today, the dental program provides comprehensive dental care to children and adults with developmental disabilities and a variety of chronic medical conditions. A highly skilled staff offers wide-ranging special care dental services which accommodate the unique needs of this population. The facility is also able to offer sedation on an out-patient basis, which makes dental treatment possible for the most apprehensive and behaviorally resistant patient.
