Tennessee Dental Wellness Foundation

Working in the dental profession can be emotional, stressful, physically demanding, and mentally exhausting. As dental professionals, we are only human, but we often feel the pressure to perform with superhuman perfection and at an unrealistic pace. Recognizing this potential problem, the Tennessee Dental Association (TDA) established the Wellness Committee in 1981. In 2019, the TDA’s Wellness Committee was dissolved and its responsibilities were transferred to the Tennessee Dental Wellness Foundation (TDWF). The TDWF is a nonprofit, 501c3 that operates independently of the TDA. It continues to assist members of the dental community (dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants) experiencing difficulties capable of affecting their performance.

If you need assistance, know someone that does, or have any questions, you can visit the TDWF’s website at www.tndentalwellness.com or you can call 615.628.3200.
