Given the the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S. and globally, the UF College of Dentistry has launched a teledentistry consultation process to provide care and screen patients through the safe and secure platform, Zoom. This will allow patients to remain at home for screening and appropriate management, which may or may not require a face-to-face visit. Enabling the teledentistry consultations allows the college to preserve PPE supplies, and to support the directives for social distancing.
Dental residents provide a complete range of dental and oral health services for adults and children under faculty supervision.
