Dental Schools in Tennessee

 

Nature of Tennessee

The state of Tennessee is located in the South of the United States and belongs to the southeastern central states of the United States. The territory of the state of Tennessee is 109,247 km 2 (thirty-sixth place among the states of the USA).

Tennessee is bordered by the states of Kentucky and Virginia to the north, North Carolina to the east, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi to the south, and Arkansas and Missouri to the west.

Tennessee is located in two time zones in the United States: Eastern and Central.

Three physiographic regions are distinguished on the territory of the state: Eastern, Central and Western (they are symbolized by the three stars on the Tennessee flag). Interestingly, unlike any other US state, the division into regions (along with the generally accepted division into districts) in Tennessee is confirmed by law and their boundaries are clearly defined. This is due to the historically established quotas for the representation of regions in government (for example, there can be no more than two out of five judges of the State Supreme Court from one region).

East Tennessee is part of the Appalachian mountain range. On the border with North Carolina, the Blue Ridge (“Blue Ridge”), covered with dense forests, stretches. It is here that Mount Clingmans Dome (2,025 meters above sea level), the highest point in Tennessee, is located, as well as the Appalachian Trail, a very popular route for American hikers (it starts in the south, in Georgia, and goes through the states of Northern Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park (one of the most popular tourist attractions in the United States) and the Cherokee National Forest are also located here.
