Patients should be prepared with their own food, water, medicines, and clothing, when arriving early. Bathrooms will be provided.
Free dental, vision, and medical services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to time constraints, be prepared to choose between DENTAL and VISION services. Medical services are offered to every patient attending the clinic.
Patients will be required to wear a face-covering and must undergo a COVID-19 screening before entering the clinic.
All services are free and open to the public. No ID required.
In some situations, such as inclement weather, volunteer cancellations, or other circumstances outside of RAM’s control, the parking lot may open earlier or a smaller number of patients served. RAM encourages everyone who would like services, especially dental services, to arrive as early as possible.
