Yes! ALL services at FreeD.O.M. Clinic are absolutely FREE for low income, uninsured, and underinsured Marion County residents. We are proudly sponsored by the Marion County Hospital District.
No ID or insurance is required.
We do not schedule appointments for our monthly clinics. We operate on a first come, first served basis until capacity is reached at each location.
We will be handing out admission numbers at
8 p.m. the night before the clinic (until capacity is reached). However, in order to claim your spot, you need to return at 5 a.m. the day of the clinic. If you're not back on time, you'll lose your place in line.
Root canals and crowns are very intensive, lengthy procedures. Due to the high volume of patients at every clinic, we offer a cleaning, filling, or extraction.
Our policy is one tooth per visit and one procedure (filling, extraction, or cleaning). If you need extensive work, you may need to attend more than one clinic.
It has been done in the past, but only the dentist (on site) can determine what procedures can be performed. It may be worth your time to come and see.
Prepare to spend four to six hours with us. Bring food and healthy snacks, remember to take your medication, and do not smoke the day of your treatment.
The Department of Health has partnered with FreeD.O.M. Clinic and usually offers TDAP, Meningitis, Pneumonia, and Flu.
IF we are offering both services at a clinic, due to the high volume of patients, you have to choose dental care OR eye care.
Children usually require routine dental care throughout the year, so we recommend getting them into a dental home right away. In addition, children typically have Medicaid insurance, which is usually accepted by the Heart of Florida, Langley, the Department of Health and Shands. Nevertheless, if your child is uninsured, we treat children for episodic care. We do not do sedation, so it is up to the discretion of the dentist to determine if the child can tolerate local anesthesia.
If you need reading glasses they are provided on site immediately. If you need prescription glasses, they arrive in 6 to 8 weeks. We provide single lens glasses and lined bifocals - no progressive lenses, no tinted lenses, no contacts and no prescriptions for contact lenses. You will have an eye exam done by an optometrist and then you will choose your frames from a beautiful selection of name brand glasses.
We are sponsored by the Marion County Hospital District, so our clinics are for uninsured, underinsured, and homeless Marion County residents.
