BRISTOL — Doctors, nurses, and especially dentists, are being paged to volunteer at an event in April that sees thousands line up days in advance for free medical care.

While announcing plans for a second Remote Area Medical clinic at Bristol Motor Speedway on April 14 and 15, Tri-Cities RAM Chair Helen Scott issued a plea to area physicians and dental specialists for their assistance that weekend.

“Eight out of 10 people requested help with dental (needs). ... We need more professional volunteers, especially dentists,” said Scott, who said dentistry work — including fillings, cleanings and extractions — was in high demand during the October 2010 clinic.
