The Christian Mobile Dental Clinic works in cooperation with local churches and organizations. If you are in need of dental care, please contact your local church or non-profit organization. Due to high demand, we ask that you do not contact Bellevue’s Christian Mobile Dental Clinic directly.
The idea for the Christian Mobile Dental Clinic began as part of our Bellevue Loves Memphis program. Since the program began in 2007, thousands of Bellevue members have been involved in community service projects around Memphis, all for the purpose of sharing God’s love in a tangible way.
To help with the finances and manpower necessary to operate the clinic, we are partnering with other churches and organizations. Our partners include Baptist Memorial Health Care, Clay and Land Insurance, Crosslink Memphis, Grace Evangelical Church, Mid-South Baptist Association, Darby Dental, Kroger, Patterson Dental, UT Health Science Center’s Department of Dental Hygiene, and UT Health Science Center’s Department of Dentistry.
“We believe that we’re putting wheels on the Gospel through this ministry,” stated Dr. Mike Day, a representative of the Mid-South Baptist Association, at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “And that’s exactly what the Christian Mobile Dental Clinic is all about. Sharing God’s love and meeting the needs of people in Memphis right where they live.”
