The University Of Florida College Of Dentistry, Competencies For The New Dental Graduate, articulates the behaviors/abilities which supported by foundation knowledge and psychomotor skills in biomedical, behavioral, ethical, clinical dental science and information management are essential for independent and unsupervised performance as an entry-level general dentist. Departments design competency assessments that certify one or more of these competency statements. Students must successfully pass all competency assessments to certify for graduation.
The clinical courses linked below are projections and subject to change from year to year, not only in content but also in the educational and evaluation methods utilized. However, students will be notified in writing by course directors and with appropriate notice of any changes.
The College of Dentistry’s Clinic Procedure Manual contains information on clinical operations, patient treatment planning, fees, forms and related clinical administrative procedures. The College of Dentistry’s Student Handbook contains information about the dental curriculum, academic/clinical performance, academic honesty, student evaluation and other college programs and services. Direct all questions concerning clinical grading or competency evaluation to the specific course director indicated in this syllabus. The appeal of a clinical evaluation or clinical course grade must be within 5 working days from the posting or receipt of the grade (excluding holidays and school breaks.)
