Free dental clinics in the United States include the Harrisonburg- Rockingham Free Clinic and dental clinics established by the community organization Mission of Mercy. Remote Area Medical, or RAM, also provides professional dental care and other medical services through mobile clinics, which are set up all over the United States. These clinics offer free services to people who are isolated, impoverished and uninsured.
HRFC serves the community of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County in Virginia and was conceptualized by Dr. Mac Garrison in 1993. It offers free dental extractions to its patients, along with other services on a sliding scale. Mission of Mercy has put up several free dental clinics in various states, including Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas and Arizona for those who otherwise could not afford services. RAM utilizes large, open areas, such as schools, fairgrounds and arenas, and transforms these into mobile clinics where patients can avail of free dental services and other critical medical care.
