Dental services may include exams, cleanings, fillings, and extractions.

Free eye glasses, screenings, and refractions are available for those requiring optical care.

Medical care may include health exams, school physicals, consultations, chronic disease prevention, hypertension & diabetes counseling, and non-narcotic medications and prescriptions. Other essential services such as ultrasound, massage therapy, physical therapy, and legal consultations will be available.
