社区牙科和行为科学

The activities of the UF College of Dentistry’s Department of Community Dentistry and Behavioral Science include a wide range of scientific and academic pursuits related to dental public health. The department is responsible for the predoctoral didactic and community-based education in community dentistry and public health, oral health promotion, cultural competency, patient management, evidence-based dentistry, interdisciplinary education as well as professionalism and ethics.

In addition, within the department are Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency programs in Hialeah and St. Petersburg, Florida. We provide services for the community such as school-based prevention programs and annual screenings. Furthermore, the department houses two research centers, the Pain Research and Intervention Center of Excellence and the Southeast Center to Reduce Disparities in Oral Health.

Through our research, we strive to integrate behavioral, social, economic, and cultural factors into interdisciplinary multi-level studies of health. Experimental, epidemiologic, and clinical studies form the basis for the portfolio of current research. Current studies focus on access to care, health professions education for underserved minorities, prevalence of HPV, chronic pain and osteoarthritis, genomic medicine, adaptability and resilience in aging, complementary and integrative health approaches across the lifespan, as well as ethnic and gender health disparities.

通过我们的教学,我们的目标是扩大学生对行为,社会,经济和文化因素对整个生命周期中疾病发生的影响的理解,重点是口腔疾病,提供和利用卫生服务。我们的指导反映了我们致力于提高学生对文化对健康和福祉影响的敏感性的承诺。我们试图发展一代医疗保健专业人员,这些专业人员了解其工作的社区环境,并具有将具有文化基于循证的方法纳入临床实践中的工具。

Through our service, we seek to increase the knowledge of our colleagues within the University, the broader healthcare and research communities, and the public about current health-related issues affecting the overall well-being of all citizens ultimately to improve treatment, enhance access, and influence healthcare policy.
