Giving Back to Advance UFCD's Missions

Dr. Cecil White, Jr. Scholars Fund

Championed by Dr. John Dozier and his wife, Martha, the Cecil White, Jr. Scholars Fund supports scholarships for DMD students who have demonstrated a commitment to breaking down barriers and welcoming individuals from groups that are underrepresented in the dentistry profession and at the college.

Dr. Dozier and Dr. White go way back -- 44 years, to be exact -- in the UF College of Dentistry Zeta Class of 1977. Now the best friends are uniting toward a more diverse profession.
