Dean’s Message

“Go Greater”

In fall 2017, the University of Florida launched the Go Greater capital campaign to provide a way for donors to give through the university to enrich the lives of citizens across our state, the nation and the world. With a goal of $3 bilion, the campaign encourages committed Gators to go even greater in support of students, faculty, improving UF’s programs and to better serve society.

While capital campaigns are extremely important to UF and to the College of Dentistry, we can apply the idea of going greater to other aspects of our lives as well. As part of a preeminent university, UF Continuing Dental Education (CDE) strives to go greater each year by offering dentists and dental auxiliaries a roster of courses that are current, scientifically based and relevant to the practice and the future of dentistry. The go greater mindset pushes CDE to update our core courses continually while adding new courses that highlight recent advancements in oral health care treatment.

As you look through this 2018-2019 Course Guide, you’ll find courses designed to ensure you remain current in best practices in the oral health arena as well as learning new skills and staying updated about recent advances in providing the best — the greatest — care, which is what your patients deserve.

Thank you for being a part of UF Continuing Dental Education. We are here for you, so please let us know how we can better serve the educational needs of you and your dental team and we hope you enjoy a wonderful, successful, great year!

With kind regards,
