IMG_2223aA team of physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, and numerous others volunteer their time and talents to keep the clinic open. Volunteers are supported by a small paid staff. In fact, more than 75% of our workforce hours comes from volunteers.  In addition to the volunteers in the clinic, there are specialty physicians and dentists who accept referrals in their offices at no charge.
