Infusion Center Spotlight: DENT Infusion Center
NICA’s Infusion Center Spotlight aims to recognize the exemplary infusion providers who have supported NICA’s mission through membership. Provider members operate stand-alone infusion centers that improve patients’ access to high-quality and cost-effective care in the communities they serve.
DENT Infusion Center provides its patients with personalized care in a comfortable atmosphere while being part of one of the most comprehensive neurologic centers in the United States.
History: In 1962, Harry M. Dent, a Buffalo-area entrepreneur, and philanthropist was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Because of his illness the Dent Family Foundation, under the leadership of his son Harry M. Dent, Jr., elected to support the work of a renowned neurologist, Dr. William R. Kinkel, and his efforts in treating Parkinson’s disease. Through their leadership, the Dent Neurologic Institute became a leader in the treatment of neurologic diseases.
Since its founding in 1998, the DENT Infusion Center has quickly become one of the most comprehensive infusion centers in the country.
Mission: The philosophy of the DENT Neurologic Institute is to show our patients and each other the same respect for human dignity, and level of kindness, that we would seek for our families and loved ones. Nothing else is acceptable.
