Digital Course Guide

 

 

Welcome to the first all-digital edition of the University of Florida College of Dentistry’s Continuing Dental Education Course Guide. We have designed the new course guide to be completely accessible online using all electronic devices, including smart phones, with a goal of providing ease of use so your goal of lifelong professional learning can be arranged, literally, at your fingertips.

Within the course guide, you will find information and registration options for 55+ courses offering during more than 100+ sessions to make it as convenient as possible for you and your oral health care team to stay current with licensure requirements and with the leading edge of changes in our profession. We are always working to improve our course offerings to ensure the needs of our customers are met. Last year more than 2,000 people attended CE courses with UFCD.

 This year we added several new programs including courses on digital scanning (Optical Impressioning in the Digital Era, page 30), a 3-part Digital Workflow Concentration (Synergy, page 16; Full-arch Fixed, page 17; and Full-arch CBCT, page 17), a Dental Lasers Certification (page 31), and Botulinum Toxin (Botulinum Toxin: The HOW & Why, page 13), to name just a few.

In the same way that we maintain a focus on the future for our CE programs, we maintain a future-focus for the overall direction of the college as well. Recently we completed a five-year strategic plan to guide our focus through 2024. The plan includes five key goals: education, patient care, research, infrastructure, and environment. We invite you to review the plan online (https://cod-strategic-plan.sites.medinfo.ufl.edu/) and share any feedback you may have with us.

Thank you so much for allowing us to play a role in your personal and professional development as your CE provider.

With kind regards,
