UFCD 50th Anniversary

First Commencement Keynote

Robert L. Kaplan, D.D.S., was one of a group of Florida dentists who were instrumental in making the case for a dental school in the state of Florida, and helped established our college. He was a keynote speaker for the college’s first commencement and if you’d like to see his speech, you can download it here.
