Providing critical dental treatment to the needy in Jackson Macon Swain & Transylvania Counties of Western North Carolina

Our Supporters

The need for critical dental care in our mountain community cannot be met without ongoing support of the Blue Ridge Free Dental Clinic from many individuals, organizations and foundations.

From the beginning, the core of this support has come from churches and church groups in the Blue Ridge area. Their vision to address the need for dental services among the poor in our community is inspiring. In addition, foundations and community organizations have provided funding for daily operations and capital improvements, such as the purchase of the dental office and its equipment. Finally, we owe tremendous gratitude to the hundreds of dedicated volunteers who have donated both time and money to advance our cause.

Some of the Clinic’s supporters are listed below.
