WHY USE TDA-ENDORSED COMPANIES?
When members are able to use the services and products endorsed by the Tennessee Dental Association, they are able to get a good price, but also keep TDA dues low and receive more services. These companies provide the TDA with a royalty based on the amount of use by TDA members and their offices.
When contacting these companies, be sure to tell them you are a member of the TDA.

Kevin Christian, LLC
X-Ray Equipment Inspection
Kevin Christian, LLC conducts x-ray equipment inspections and currently has 900+ Tennessee clients. You can save your practice both time and money by having a private inspection of your x-ray equipment. Since the State of Tennessee's Department of Radiological Health and most insurance companies require x-ray equipment to be inspected every four years, hiring the most recently endorsed member service, with 18 years experience, makes perfect sense. When you have your required inspection performed by Kevin Christian, LLC, you pay the State of Tennessee only 18% of the cost of a state inspector performing the same service. The amount charged by Kevin Christian, LLC along with the 18% state fee is much less than the regular amount charged by the state. And then, there is the convenience factor. You choose the date and time for your inspection, so there is no "down time" in your patient schedule. In 1982, at the urging of the TDA, the state developed the reduced fee private inspection option. Make Kevin Christian, LLC, your choice for x-ray equipment inspections. Contact Mr. Kevin Christian at 615-268-4345 or RadiationPhysics@comcast.net or visit www.kevinchristianllc.com
