Interfaith Dental is a volunteer-driven nonprofit agency that helps vulnerable populations achieve and sustain a healthy smile. Our mission is to create a healthier community by providing transformational oral health care for those experiencing poverty. Since 1994, Interfaith Dental provides comprehensive and emergency dental services for low-income, uninsured/underinsured (and/or those on TennCare) individuals suffering from devastating dental disease on a sliding-fee scale based on income and family size. We have two state-of-the-art clinics located in Murfreesboro and Nashville to serve a 10-county region in Middle TN.
