SHARON, Pa. – Remote Area Medical – a nonprofit provider of pop-up clinics delivering free dental, vision and medical care to those in need – will hold a two-day clinic on June 10-11 at Sharon High School, 1129 E. State St.

All services will be free, and no ID is required, according to a press release from the provider. Free dental services will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. The patient parking lot will open no later than 11:59 p.m. Friday night, June 9, and remain open for the duration of the clinic. Once in the parking lot, additional information regarding clinic-opening processes and next steps will be provided. Clinic doors will open at 6 a.m.

Services available at the clinic include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions and dental X-rays.

In some situations outside of RAM’s control, such as inclement weather, volunteer cancellations or other circumstances, the parking lot may open earlier or a smaller number of patients may be served. RAM encourages everyone who would like services, especially dental services, to arrive as early as possible. The clinic’s closing time may vary based on capacity.

RAM has treated more than 910,000 individuals with $189.5 million worth of free health care and veterinary services. Since its founding in 1985, more than 196,000 volunteers – composed of licensed dental, vision, medical and veterinary professionals, as well as general support staff – have supported RAM’s mission.
