PedoGators, Inc. is a support group of the University of Florida’s Department of Pediatric Dentistry. Its goals are to:

  • Sponsor an annual continuing education program
  • Support the department’s residency program activities
  • Develop social opportunities to meet in the future

The group held its first meeting on October 23, 2004, and agreed to donate funds to the department’s Clinic Renovation Fund following appropriate legal counsel to assure it is within the proper tax-exempt status of its incorporation.

In 2004, a group of former residents met to discuss re-activating the alumni association. The organizing committee included:

  • Dr. Ron Rozanski (’87)
  • Dr. George MacMaster (’88)
  • Dr. Dan Barnes (’89)
  • Dr. Barry Marcum (’94)
  • Dr. Tim Glomb (’95)
  • Dr. Caryn Alvarado (’00)
  • Dr. Carly Thomas (’01)

The organizing committee elected the new association’s officers:

  • Dr. Tim Glomb (President)
  • Dr. Caryn Alvardo (Vice-President)
  • Dr. Dan Barnes (Secretary / Treasurer).

Dr. Robert Primosch was appointed Executive Director of the association. The association was incorporated as “PedoGators, Inc.” and it has its own Constitution and Bylaws. A high percentage of graduates have joined the association, along with many “friends” including non-alumni practitioners, faculty and current residents and fellows.
