The UF College of Dentistry is one of the largest providers of high-quality, affordable dental care to Florida’s low income residents: more than 70 percent of the college’s patients meet federal low-income guidelines. Dental care at our DMD student clinic typically costs 30-50 percent less than private practice usual and customary fees. In addition to providing reduced-fee care in its student clinics, the college hosts several community outreach programs providing direct dental services and oral health education to individuals including those with special health care needs.
The college participates each year in the UF Campaign for Charities (formerly the UF Community Campaign). Past activities have included a silent auction, dunking booth and used book and media sale.

The pilot program included 80 students who learned about professions in dentistry, medicine, nursing, physician’s assisting, pharmacy, public health and health professions, and veterinary medicine.
The students, who are rising sophomores and juniors, came from all over the United States.
SNDA Impressions Program
The Impressions program is a one-day program of activities sponsored by the Student National Dental Association. Its mission is to expose underrepresented pre-dental students to careers in dentistry and to the application and financial aid process, making participants stronger dental school applicants.
