Our volunteer dentists provide exams and treatments for adult urgent/ emergency care and routine and preventative care for children. Volunteer dentists provide the care they feel comfortable performing. Free Clinic provides basic supplies and equipment for screenings, x rays, sealants, fluoride varnish, anesthetic, fillings, and extractions. Volunteers are free to bring any of their own equipment if they wish. The Free Clinic does not provide endodontic, cleanings, periodontic, prosthodontic, or orthodontic care.
SCHEDULE Clinics are scheduled according to your availability. Call or email us to schedule.
