University of Florida - Continuing Dental Education Course Guide

Welcome to the 2014-2015 edition of our annual course guide.

Always remember that the future comes one day at a time.

~  Dean Acheson

The focus of the University of Florida College of Dentistry Continuing Education Department is service – the service of continuous dental education for dental professions – not just in Florida but also from other areas of the United States. In order to be the best at continuing dental education, we always have our eye on the future of learning and communication, as well as the future delivery of oral health care.

The digital age has changed so much. How we deliver and receive information is just one small part of it but that part has revolutionalized almost everything about education. As such we are always looking to the future to serve you, our customer, better. We strive to keep our courses contemporary and relevant to the practicing dental professional.  To that end you’ll see new courses such as “Digital Implant Dentistry” and “Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Interpretation” in our course guide.

We also strive to use contemporary communications channels to share course information, updates and course materials. Several years ago we added QR scan codes in our marketing materials and you will also see them in this course guide. We are developing a mobile app for smart phones to help us communicate better with our college alumni and continuing education customers and to help with onsite course management.  You’ll hear more from us about this free app when it’s available.

Thank you for your continued support of our programs.  We want to be your trusted resource for continuing education and life-long learning and value your opinions on how we can improve to better serve you.
