Dental Ambassadors represent UF College of Dentistry and the Office of the Dean at professional events, official UFCD events, host alumni and donors, and connect Alumni and students together.
As Dental Ambassadors, our mission is to provide a link between students and alumni and act as the official student representatives of the University of Florida College of Dentistry. We promote morale within the college and show enthusiasm for our school. We believe that we are the key to shaping the College of Dentistry of tomorrow.
The major goals of Dental Ambassadors are to: Increase interaction between students and alumni through events such as the Florida National Dental Organization (FNDC), Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting, Dental Fall Weekend, Dining with Dentists, and Meet the Dean Receptions. Increase students’ awareness and recognition for all that the Academy of Alumni and Friends (AAF) provides for the college, and by doing so, encourage students to join the AAF after graduation.
Our students act as official student representatives of the college, focusing on creating alumni and student interaction at key college events including the Florida National Dental Convention and Dental Fall Weekend. Dental Ambassadors are also tour guides for the college, participate in continuing education courses, assist with fundraising initiatives for the Academy of Alumni and Friends Annual Fund, and coordinate the Annual Acid Etch Talent Show.
Students who are interested in joining the Dental Ambassadors can visit our table at UFCD’s Student Organization Fair or reach out to our advisor to learn more about joining the organization.
