Program Description:

The University of Florida College of Dentistry is a state-supported college located on the campus of the University of Florida at Gainesville. It is an integral part of the J. Hillis Miller Health Science Center, both philosophically and physically. Its first class of 24 students was admitted in September 1972. Currently, 78 students are admitted each year. The 12-story Dental Science Building was occupied in August 1975.

The health-oriented professions exchange information within the Health Science Center and draw upon other university resources that attempt to further understand health and illness. A strong affiliation exists between the colleges of the Health Science Center, Shands Hospital, the Veterans Administration Medical Center, and University Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida. The College of Dentistry maintains an active continuing education program, an extensive specialty residence program, and a broad research program.
