Public health dental clinics provide clinical dental services to segments of the population that would otherwise not receive care. Dental facilities housed within local health departments are located in 54 of 89 rural counties and in five of the six metropolitan regions. Clinical dental services are provided on a part-time or full-time basis, depending on the location.
Specific information on availability of services or eligibility guidelines can be obtained from the local health department in the county of interest.
Three mobile dental clinics located in the Mid-Cumberland, Northeast, and West Tennessee Regions have been operating this year in an effort to provide access to dental services for high risk children in underserved areas.
