Dental Clinics and Regional Contacts

Slide 1

Counties which have a dental clinic are identified with blue or white


Public health dental clinics provide clinical dental services to segments of the population that would otherwise not receive care. The clinics provide basic dental services and emergency care for uninsured adults and children.  The clinics also provide services for TennCare members. Dental clinics housed within local health departments are located in 45 of 89 rural counties and in four 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.

The Public Health Nurse’s Fluoride Varnish Program is offered in all 95 counties at the 126 public health departments across the state.  The nurses provide oral health screenings and fluoride varnish application for children ages 0 to 21.
