What We Do
Despite the advent of more affordable options for health insurance, many of Tennessee’s residents are still left without access to coverage and/or care. There are communities, and populations within those communities, that are disproportionately affected by barriers to coverage, an insufficient number of providers, a high prevalence of chronic illnesses, mental health challenges, and a diminished quality of life.
"The importance of oral health in relation to total health has not been overlooked by TCCN members." - Rhonda Switzer-Nadasdi, DMD | Executive Director, Interfaith Dental Clinic
It is for these people and their communities that TCCN and its member charitable clinics and referral networks exist. By means of our advocacy, programs and services, we at TCCN service and support a critical safety net for Tennesseeans who otherwise would have no access to healthcare services in spite of current health reform efforts.
