Message from the Dean
Boyd Robinson, D.D.S., M.Ed., Interim Dean
At the University of Florida College of Dentistry, the future is all around us. It is in the research we perform that tells us the paths that oral health can and should take today to make a difference for patients tomorrow. It is in the excellent dental care we provide that makes a difference for patients today, tomorrow and for the rest of their lives. And it is in the students we work together to educate – the students who represent the future of our profession and the future of oral health care for our state and nation.
Every day I am energized by the reality that the decisions we make, the work we do, and the relationships we foster have an impact not just on the present, but on the future. For that reason, I am extremely proud to have been trusted with the responsibility of serving as interim dean between Terri Dolan’s retirement and the selection of a permanent replacement. As such during this time, I pledge to be “all in.” I am fully committed to the present and the future of our college.
