Free Bradenton Clinic Needs Dental, Optical Volunteers



The fifth annual Remote Area Medical Free Clinic will take place at Manatee Technical College in Bradenton on October 12 and 13, but organizers say they need dental and eye care professionals to help. “Over the four years that our RAM Clinic has been held in Bradenton, we’ve delivered over 6,755 free dental, optical and medical procedures to 3,894 patients – and the only question we have ever asked is, ‘Where does it hurt?’” said Dr. Richard Conard, M.D., who has been the principal organizer of the event. “This year, we desperately need help. We have too few dental and optical professional volunteers to serve all the patients we know will be here.”

Volunteer dentists, oral surgeons, opticians, optometrists, and ophthalmologists are encouraged to contact Lori Dengler at Volunteer professional providers are offered free meals during the event. Lodging is also provided for medical professionals coming from a distance exceeding 100 miles. Because Florida’s Legislature does not permit out-of-state medical professionals to provide free medical care to Florida residents, only Florida-licensed professionals may volunteer.
