One of our goals at Aurora Dental is to give back to our local community. While we love the art and science of dentistry, the reason we entered this field is because we want to use our talents and knowledge to help others. Volunteering our time with Medworks gives us the opportunity to do this.
More About Medworks
Medworks was founded in 2009 to provide needed healthcare services to people in Northeast Ohio and the Greater Cleveland area. Since it started, the organization has served over 16,000 underinsured and uninsured Ohioans through 60 free clinics throughout the region. Services offered by Medworks include dental, vision, and medical care. They use a Care + Connect approach, which means that not only are patients’ immediate needs met, but Medworks also connects them with local healthcare providers in their communities for continued follow-up care.

Find an Upcoming Free Clinic
If you’re one of the many Ohio residents who is struggling to afford the dental, medical, or vision care you need, you can locate upcoming free clinics near you on the Medworks website. Medworks also provides their services via telehealth clinics that let patients speak with healthcare providers about their concerns over a video or phone call. All Medworks services are free, but appointments are necessary to reserve your spot.
Give to Medworks
A number of healthcare providers from throughout Northeast Ohio generously donate their time, talents, and services, but additional monetary donations are needed to supply clinics with the equipment they need. If you’d like to help, visit the Medworks website to contribute to their Annual Fund.
You can also volunteer with Medworks, even if you’re not a medical professional. Medworks is looking for guides, interpreters, social workers, and volunteers to set up and take down equipment during free clinics.
