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.
“HSC looks forward to partnering with RAM and Hillwood to provide free medical, dental and vision care to residents in need,” said David Mansdoerfer, special assistant to the president at HSC. “We are actively looking for partners and volunteers – both clinical and nonclinical to support this effort.”

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.
“Hillwood is proud to partner with HSC to host this Remote Area Medical clinic at Alliance in Fort Worth,” said Mercedes Bolen, vice president of external affairs. “Due to its easy access to major roadways, Alliance serves as an easy access point by those in need in Tarrant and Denton county, and even beyond the metroplex. We are honored to support our community by partnering to bring these critical medical services to those who need it most.”
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.
