Thanks for a spectacular Dental Fall Weekend 2013
UF College of Dentistry alumni, friends and family came home to Gainesville for Dental Fall Weekend 2013 to celebrate Gator traditions. Their school spirit un-phased by this Gator Football season, the UFCD classes of 1978, 1983, 2003 and 2008 “stuck together in all kinds of weather” and were well-represented at the annual Dental Fall Weekend tailgate. Nearly 300 people from the different classes, their families and friends, and current students chatted, cheered and celebrated right in the shadow of Century Tower before the Saturday game. Many thanks to Psi Omega for organizing this unforgettable experience, to Gators Dockside for catering and Beautiful Moments for providing tables and chairs.
Alumni and friends also participated in two continuing education courses this weekend. The college is grateful to Dr. Barry Levin of Dentsply Implants, Inc., for the Friday CE course, and to Dr. Indraneel Bhattacharyya from the Oral & Maxillofacial Diagnostic Services faculty for teaching the Saturday course. Our program is regularly recognized for its high-quality CE courses, and without the dedicated participation of our alumni, friends and professionals like Dr. Levin and Dr. Bhattacharyya, we would not have such an outstanding reputation.
But perhaps an even more outstanding attribute of our program is the combined commitment of alumni and friends to keeping our college’s traditions of excellence. Taking a break from all the fun this weekend, our Academy of Alumni & Friends convened to discuss even more ways to keep the Gator Dental family strong. Because of their outreach and planning, we were able to realize our vision for the new UF Health Periodontics and Prosthodontics dental center. We held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the $500,000 clinic this weekend—that’s proof of what our alumni and friends can achieve together. Thank you to all AAF members who attended; we owe so much to your continuous dedication and efforts on our behalf.
Here’s to next year, and to remembering a great 2013 Dental Fall Weekend. Our Facebook page has a few new albums with photos from the weekend events. Please “like’ our page, tag yourself and friends in pictures and feel free to share on your own timelines.
Thank you again to our alumni, friends, families, sponsors and contributors for two days that will leave behind hundreds of memories–you’ve given us the gift of a story we can always share.

Help fund a new home for clinical care and education in Periodontology and Prosthodontics
Alumni and friends of the college have made gifts currently totaling more than $500,000 to fund a transformative nine-month renovation of Clinic 1A into state-of-the-art periodontology and prosthodontics graduate clinics. The renovation is scheduled for completion in July 2012, just in time for the 2012 periodontology and prosthodontics residents to begin their graduate programs.
