Fort Worth: Clinic to provide free dental, vision and medical care Dec. 11-12

The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth and Remote Area Medical, a major nonprofit provider of pop-up clinics delivering free dental, vision and medical care to underserved and uninsured individuals, is bringing a free clinic to Fort Worth Dec. 11-12.

 

 

HSC and Hillwood have teamed to host the event. The RAM pop-up clinic will help bring medical services to communities in need and is slated to be the largest RAM clinic of the year.

The free clinic will provide services to patients on a first-come, first-served basis at Hillwood’s Aviator Way building located in Fort Worth’s Alliance corridor, located near Alliance Airport at 13901 Aviator Way. All RAM services are free and no ID is required.

Services available at the RAM clinic include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, dental x-rays, eye exams, glaucoma testing, eyeglass prescriptions, eyeglasses made onsite, women's health exams and general medical exams.

Due to time constraints, patients should be prepared to choose between dental and vision services. Medical services are offered to every patient attending the clinic.

The clinic parking lot will open no later than midnight on Dec. 11. Ticket distribution typically begins no later than 3 a.m., and patients will be seen in numerical order according to their ticket number when clinic doors open at 6 a.m. This process will repeat on Dec. 12.

In some situations, such as inclement weather, volunteer cancellations or other circumstances outside of RAM’s control, ticketing may occur earlier than 3 a.m. RAM encourages everyone who would like services, especially dental services, to arrive as early as possible.

In response to COVID-19, RAM has developed and incorporated new disinfecting and safety processes. All patients will be required to wear a face covering and must undergo a COVID-19 screening before entering the clinic. Guests and family members of patients will not be allowed to enter the building. New air flow, disinfecting processes and capacity limitations have also been put in place to ensure the safety of patients, volunteers and staff.
