About TDC

History

Trinity Dental Clinic began as a vision of Christian nurses in Blount County who saw a need for non-traditional healthcare. Multiple health care surveys corroborated this need, and the greatest need proved to be dentistry. Follow-up meetings were held with other Christian community leaders and health care providers. Trinity Dental Clinic opened for patient care in April 2006.
