Community Outreach

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.

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.
