Unless you are professionally trained in this field then your best bet of having this arranged is to speak to your mechanic. Serpentine belts are notoriously difficult to fit and can often result in a number of problems, so it's not worth trying to do it yourself.

There are a couple of online instruction pages that will help you in doing this, but you must remember that the instructions are different with every kind of car out there. That's why reading those instruction pages may not be of any use to you at all. Taking advice from the Internet on how to install a serpentine belt on your Dodge could ultimately cause more problems. When you have a Dodge, too, the chances are you want to look after your car. You've got a very sought-after car there, so do your best to look after it. The best way for you to do this is to of course drive carefully, but also to only allow the professionals to dig around and make changes.

Trying to make changes yourself could ultimately see the serpentine belt being broken or damaged, or just see you wasting your time as you eventually realize that you're doing it wrong, and you have to put everything back the way it was in your car.

Save some time, and take it straight to your mechanic. They will be able to offer you a sensible price if you've been using them for a long time, and they'll get the job done in no time.

However, if you really want to do it yourself and you are relatively experienced then there's nothing stopping you seeking the help of a mechanic and simply asking them what they would do. They may share some advice with you to try and help you do it properly the first time round.
