Alabama Regional Medical Services (ARMS), formerly Birmingham Health Care is a HRSA FTCA deemed community health center serving the greater Birmingham area since 1985.  ARMS provides a variety of health services to the entire family.

ARMS is accredited by JCAHCO. ARMS is a Legacy member of NHCHC.

Dental services include emergency, primary, and preventive dental services for children and adults, treatment and x-rays, replacement of missing teeth, crowns, bridges, and partials.
