I recently came across Interfaith Dental Clinic while on a job hunt and have started volunteering as a dental hygienist in their Nashville office. I absolutely enjoy spending time in their office and love working with their patients. Many times working in different setting is much like cooking in someone else's kitchen, where it can take time and patience to get yourself organized. The staff members at Interfaith make volunteering easy and enjoyable. Interfaith is made up of a wonderful group of individuals who on a continual basis show great passion, selflessness, and outstanding service to their community. God has truly blessed Middle Tennessee with such an inspirational program. --Megan Stubblefield, RDH

I am an MTSU Recording Industry student (senior), and I have recently decided to pursue a D.D.S., but I am going to finish up my current degree at MTSU first. While I am here in town for one more semester, I have started volunteering with Interfaith Dental Clinic of Rutherford County. As someone coming into this not knowing hardly a thing about the Dental industry, I still felt very welcomed and comfortable meeting everyone and volunteering at Interfaith, from my first e-mail correspondence to my current volunteer position. I am proud to volunteer for a selfless organization such as Interfaith, which is dedicated to servicing uninsured, low-income, and working Rutherford County residents who might otherwise go without. Everyone at Interfaith is very dedicated and works very hard to bring an incredible level of care to every patient.
