Free Dental and Vision Care Services
Remote Area Medical® Clinic comes to Van Buren County
WHAT: The Van Buren County Head Start Multi-services Advisory Council is hosting a
Remote Area Medical® Clinic (R.A.M.) in order to provide free dental and vision services
to occupants of Van Buren County and surrounding counties.
WHY: With the rising costs of medical care and medical insurance, many families and
individuals in our community currently have no medical coverage. Those who possess
insurance often have little or no dental or vision coverage. The Remote Area Medical®
Clinic will provide free medical services that are otherwise unavailable to the residents of
our communities. Doctors, dentists and other professionals volunteer their time and
even pay their own way to provide access to care for anyone who needs it. Patients are
treated on a first come, first served basis - no income test, no proof of insurance, no

is open to anyone, no matter where you live. Large crowds are anticipated! Bring your
