Dental Faculty Practice: 352-273-7950

Faculty Practice is the area in the College of Dentistry where the dental faculty members see patients in a private-practice setting, providing the highest-quality dental care.

DMD-Student Dental Centers: Call 352-273-6700 or 800-633-3953

In the DMD-student centers, dental students perform care under the supervision of faculty. Fees are generally 30 to 50 percent less than in private practice. Patients must undergo a screening process to ensure that their oral health care needs are compatible with our students’ educational needs. To apply for a screening appointment, download the pre-screening application, print it out, complete it and mail it to us. You can also call 352-273-9097 to request that an application be mailed to you.

Specialty Care

We have a full range of dental centers where faculty and residents practice together. The residents have completed their dental degree and are continuing their education to specialize in one area of dentistry. Fees are generally 80 percent of those in a private practice.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery: 352-273-6731

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a surgical specialty which involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the head and neck region. The scope of the specialty is very broad, ranging from the extraction of teeth to the treatment of complex facial fractures. Oral surgery is a referral clinic and should receive those referrals by fax at 352-392-6909 to the attention of the receptionist.

Oral Medicine Center: 352-273-6740

This center provides care to patients with unusual oral lesions or conditions, and patients with oral problems associated with systemic diseases and concerns related to head and neck cancer.

This center specializes in implant dentistry; care is provided by faculty and fellows. Fellows are dentists who have completed residency and are learning a particular area within a specialty.

Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology: 352-273-6664

Patients are seen by maxillofacial prosthodontists Drs. Turner and Wong and anaplastologist Mr. Mann. This service works in collaboration with oral surgeons and Shands head and neck cancer surgery.

Student Oral Surgery Clinic: 352-273-6705

If you have a toothache or facial swelling, you may be treated at the Student Oral Surgery Clinic even if you are not a current patient at the college’s clinics.

The drawing for both morning and afternoon clinics takes place at 7:00 a.m., so even if you would prefer to be treated in the afternoon, you must be here for the 7:00 a.m. drawing.
