Answers to Patient Questions:

  • Continue taking any prescription medication as directed so bring it along so a dose is not missed should the patient have to wait a good portion of the day.
  • The patient will need to fill out a brief health history so bring a list of allergies, prescriptions, etc. to have this information available.
  • Patients do not need to bring dental records or proof of income.
  • Services are first come, first served and ALL patients must be able to wait in line – no appointments.
  • The clinic opens at 4:30 am on both Friday and Saturday (February 13-14) and waiting in line or determining how early to get in line, is up to the patient.
  • We only let in as many patients as we will be able to treat that day (approximately 1,000) and we will then close the doors. Standing in line on Friday and not getting in does not give the patient priority the next day. It is the same process on Saturday, first come, first served.
  • Be prepared to wait and potentially be there all day. We let approximately 1,000 patients in the clinic so it may be mid-afternoon before a patient is treated.
  • We will provide breakfast and lunch for the patients at no cost to them.
  • After a medical screening, the patient will be examined by a dentist at KMOM and the patient’s greatest need will be treated. For example, if a patient needs extractions and fillings, the greatest need (probably the extractions) will be treated at KMOM. The patient does have the option to come back the next day to get the fillings but they must wait in line again like everybody else. No line priority is given.
  • Services provided include cleanings, fillings, and extractions. No dentures will be provided at KMOM.
  • Full mouth extractions will be done if determined necessary by the examining dentist. The patient will be able to discuss treatment/procedure options with the dentist prior to care.
  • We typically have as many volunteers as we need registered prior to KMOM. Therefore, volunteering will not give priority or access to treatment. Registered volunteers who wish to be treated need to manage their schedule so they can wait in line for treatment.
