Message from the DeanI am honored to share the 2009 10 University of Florida College of Dentistry Annual R eport. We are proud of our many accomplishments, and the current UF&Shands Forward T ogether strategic planning activities ensure an even stronger future. The College of Dentistry is one of six health profession colleges that, along with Shands HealthCare, represent the University of Florida Health Science Center. In 2010, the entire Health Science Center (HSC) embarked on a strategic effort to create a more integrated health system. The plan, Forward T ogether, focuses on the overriding principle that decisions about research, teaching and clinical enterprises must ultimately benefit our patients. As part of Forward T ogether, the college created a three-year strategic plan that supports the initiatives of the university and the health science center while continuing to focus on our core missions of education, research and patient care. More information about the HSCs plan, and all six HSC colleges, can be found at forwardtogether.health.ufl.edu. The success of our educational mission is reflected by the top-level candidates applying with us, and the diversity and strength of our class. The 83 members of the Class of 2014 were selected from 1,539 applicants whose average GP A was 3.6. One interesting note: 57 percent of the class is female. In our 1984 class, which graduated 30 years before this one will, women comprised 20 percent of the class. T o enhance the quality of advanced education, we are discussing creating a School of Advanced Dental Sciences that would include the departments of endodontics, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry and periodontology, and the prosthodontics graduate program. This innovative multispecialty education and care model would greatly improve interdisciplinary education, care and research. Our research mission is achieving unquestionable success. During the 2009-10 fiscal year, the research enterprise secured more than $18 million in sponsored funding. Almost $7 million of that was from the Health R esources and Services Administration to improve access to care for underserved children and adults by emphasizing public health dentistry, diverse patient populations and multicultural competence. Over a fiveyear period, the college ranked fourth in total National Institutes of Health funding among dental schools in the top three quartiles. We further strengthened patient care initiatives via partnerships, programs and grants aimed at expanding our Statewide Network for Community Oral Healths ability to provide dental care for low-income adults and children, as well as adults and children with special needs. In addition, financial support from alumni, patients and organizations continues to provide a platform that ensures our students are learning in a progressive environment that fully prepares them for their future as leaders in the dental profession and in their communities. T ogether our faculty, staff and students are working together to ensure that Floridas oral health future is bright and I am immensely grateful and proud of our accomplishments. I thank the many alumni and friends who continue to support us in important ways. Sincerely,T eresa A. Dolan, D.D.S., M.P .H. P rofessor and Dean 3 ANN UAL R EPORT 2009 2010 | UF COLLEGE O F DENTISTRY

ResearchThe colleges research program continues to grow in strength and scope, and continues to attract the most outstanding level of faculty. During the 2009 10 fiscal year, researchers received more than $18 million in sponsored funding. That infusion allowed the college to recruit new faculty with a broad range of expertise that prepared the college for participation in the newly established Clinical and T ranslational Sciences Institute (CTSI) at the University of Florida, also funded by the NIH. The CTSI focuses on bringing research from the laboratory to the patient commonly called bench to bedside by rapidly translating research and scientific findings to applications and treatments that can make a difference for patients. The college is one of 12 at UF involved in the CTSI, along with the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Affairs Health System, Shands HealthCare and other community partners around the state. The college also received five grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Health R esources and Services Administration (HRSA) totaling nearly $7 million to improve access to care for underserved children and adults. The funding will be used to enhance education for dental students and specialists with an emphasis on public health dentistry. This will ensure that tomorrows dentists are culturally competent and understand how to treat a diverse patient population. 9 ANN UAL R EPORT 2009 2010 | UF COLLEGE O F DENTISTRY Federal Non-Federal Internal Research Awards by Funding Source, FY 2004-05009-102004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 $20,000,000 $18,000,000 $16,000,000 $14,000,000 $12,000,000 $10,000,000 $8,000,000 $6,000,000 $4,000,000 $2,000,000 $0 Sponsored Research & Other Funding Fiscal Year 2009-2010Basic Science$10,001,050 Clinical Science$2,217,721Neuroscience/Pain$3,995,916Training$1,493,486Other$388,012Total $18,096,185 $0 $2,000,000 $4,000,000 $6,000,000 $8,000,000 $10,000,000 $12,000,000 $14,000,000 $16,000,000 $18,000,000 $20,000,000 200405 200506 200607 200708 200809 200910Federal Non Federal Internal

BY THE NUMB ERS: OUR PAT IEN TS AN D THEI R SATI SF A CTIONEach year we administer a patient satisfaction survey to help gauge the level of service provided by our students, faculty and staff; help us learn about the profile of our patients; and identify areas for improvement in our service and operations. About 60 percent of our patients are female. About 29 percent are over age 60; 29 percent are 41 years of age; 27 percent are 21; and about 15 percent are 20 years of age or younger. Almost 30 percent classify themselves as minorities. Our patients' income levels havent changed much over the past several years. The highest proportion, 25 percent, report an annual household income between $16,000 and $30,000. Another 23 percent report a household income between $31,000 and $50,000. More than 50 percent said they chose UF for their dental care because they trust UF. An equal number chose us because we offer quality care at a reduced fee. Almost all patients (97 percent) were satisfied with the quality of their care. Of these, about 78 percent rated their overall quality of care as excellent. Another 19 percent rated their care as very good.

Patient CareP atient care is a critical element of our educational process. In order for dental students to demonstrate clinical competency, we need a thriving clinical environment in which they can practice and learn. The college operates clinical programs in Gainesville, St. P etersburg, Naples and Hialeah. Last year, our clinics completed 120,761 patient visits; of those, 76 percent were patients with annual household incomes at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. Through the colleges Statewide Network for Community Oral Health, we provide patient care in 14 dental centers in communities stretching from T allahassee to Hialeah, serving people who lack access due to economic or other challenging circumstances. We are especially proud of the care provided to special needs patients at T acachale, Floridas oldest and largest community for the developmentally disabled. For many years, UF College of Dentistry faculty members T im Garvey, D.M.D., and P aul Burtner, D.M.D.,have operated a clinic that provides treatment to T acachale residents and to developmentally disabled Floridians from around the state. T wo years ago, a grant from the Florida legislature allowed the program to expand to treat more developmentally disabled individuals who are not T acachale residents. The clinic now provides dental care to these special needs patients during evening and weekend hours. The results are heartwarming. Caregivers, who mostly learn about the clinic through word of mouth, come from across Florida to bring special needs adult patients to the clinic. Garvey says that initially some of the patients had never seen a dentist and had severe oral health problems. T wo years later, he is gratified to see the same patients coming back and only needing a dental cleaninga simple way to measure phenomenal success. Just as significantly, the state is considering replicating our program by opening similar dental care programs for nonresidents at some of the other residential facilities in the state, modeling them after the program at T acachale. 11 ANN UAL R EPORT 2009 2010 | UF COLLEGE O F DENTISTRY2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 200910 140,000 120,000 100,000 80,000 60,000 40,000 20,000 0 Patient Visits to College-Owned Clinics, FY 2004-05009-10 <200% Federal P overty Level T otal Visits 0 20,000 40,000 60,000 80,000 100,000 120,000 140,000 200405 200506 200607 200708 200809 200910

FundingA Special DayMore than 500,000 Florida residents are estimated to have developmental disabilities such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism, spina bifida or P raderWilli syndrome. Unfortunately, caregivers often struggle to locate dental care. In 2010, the Special Day Foundation donated $100,000 to fund a program at the St. P etersburg Dental Center (a partnership between the UF College of Dentistry and St. P etersburg College) so that special needs patients can receive dental care there. Because of their support, we are able to provide specialized care for patients in the community who wouldnt otherwise have access to dental care. 13 ANN UAL R EPORT 2009 2010 | UF COLLEGE O F DENTISTRY Sources of Revenue, FY 2009-10Financial Aid 1% Graduate Medical Education 5% Other R evenue 4% T uition & Fees 21% State Appropriations 16% P atient Care 29% Indirect Cost 5% Grants & Contracts 16% Gifts & Endowments 3% State Support as a Percentage of Total Revenues, FY 2003-04009-102003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 30% 25% 20% 15% 10% 5% 0% 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 200304 200405 200506 200607 200708 200809 20092010

Message from the Dean


i I am honored to share the 2009-10 University of Florida College of Dentistry Annual Report. We are proud
of our many accomplishments, and the current UF&Shands "Forward Together" strategic planning activities
ensure an even stronger future.

The College of Dentistry is one of six health profession colleges that, along with Shands HealthCare, represent
the University of Florida Health Science Center. In 2010, the entire Health Science Center (HSC) embarked
on a strategic effort to create a more integrated health system. The plan, Forward Together, focuses on the

our patients.

As part of Forward Together, the college created a three-year strategic plan that supports the initiatives of the
university and the health science center while continuing to focus on our core missions of education, research
and patient care. More information about the HSC's plan, and all six HSC colleges, can be found at
forwardtogether. health. ufl.edu.

The success of our educational mission is reflected by the top-level candidates applying with us, and the diversity and strength of our class. The
83 members of the Class of 2014 were selected from 1,539 applicants whose average GPA was 3.6. One interesting note: 57 percent of the
class is female. In our 1984 class, which graduated 30 years before this one will, women comprised 20 percent of the class.

To enhance the quality of advanced education, we are discussing creating a School of Advanced Dental Sciences that would include the depart-
ments of endodontics, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry and periodontology, and the prosthodontics graduate program. This innovative multi-
specialty education and care model would greatly improve interdisciplinary education, care and research.

Our research mission is achieving unquestionable success. During the 2009-10 fiscal year, the research enterprise secured more than $18
million in sponsored funding. Almost $7 million of that was from the Health Resources and Services Administration to improve access to care for
underserved children and adults by emphasizing public health dentistry, diverse patient populations and multicultural competence. Over a five-
year period, the college ranked fourth in total National Institutes of Health funding among dental schools in the top three quartiles.

We further strengthened patient care initiatives via partnerships, programs and grants aimed at expanding our Statewide Network for Community
Oral Health's ability to provide dental care for low-income adults and children, as well as adults and children with special needs.

In addition, financial support from alumni, patients and organizations continues to provide a platform that ensures our students are learning in a
progressive environment that fully prepares them for their future as leaders in the dental profession and in their communities.

Together our faculty, staff and students are working together to ensure that Florida's oral health future is bright and I am immensely grateful and
proud of our accomplishments. I thank the many alumni and friends who continue to support us in important ways.

Sincerely,

)j^Aju n 0 .*-,---

Vision
The vision of the College of Dentistry is to be an internationally recognized dental
school known for an innovative educational program, commitment to cultural diversity,
discovery, transfer of scientific knowledge, the superior skills of our graduates, and the
highest degree of service.

Mission
Our mission is to achieve excellence in the art and science of dentistry through
teaching, research, and service.

Education
The College of Dentistry educates the state's future dentists and dental specialists
through its 16 degree and certificate programs. Each year the college admits a new
class of about 80 D.M.D. students consisting of individuals who are among the top
pre-dental students in the nation.

Research
The college is nationally recognized for its oral health research enterprise, emphasizing infectious diseases in
dentistry, bone biology, pain and neuroscience, and translational research to improve clinical and dental care. We
have also successfully recruited magnet investigators and junior investigators to provide a nucleus of clinical and
translational researchers in areas where we presently have complementary strengths.

Service
The college has a multifaceted service mission encompassing patient care and community outreach and education.
Through its Statewide Network for Community Oral Health, the college improves access to dental care for Florida's
residents, focusing on vulnerable and indigent populations and special needs patients. The college is one of the
largest providers of low-cost dental care in Florida through its state-of-the-art clinical services. Our students and
faculty also provide free dental treatment to underserved populations during clinics in urban and rural communities
in Florida and mission trips abroad.

One of the most challenging aspects of educating tomorrow's dentists is
ensuring that our students graduate with the critical thinking and clinical
decision-making skills needed for independent practice today and in the
future. To reach that goal, the college's curriculum and physical and tech-
nological infrastructure must continually evolve and remain consistent with
research and scientific advances.

Research


The college's research program continues to grow in strength and scope, and continues to attract the most outstanding
level of faculty. During the 2009-10 fiscal year, researchers received more than $18 million in sponsored funding.
That infusion allowed the college to recruit new faculty with a broad range of expertise that prepared the college for
participation in the newly estab-
lished Clinical and Translational Research Awards by Funding Source, FY 2004-05-2009-10
Sciences Institute (CTSI) at the
University of Florida, also funded
by the NIH.


The CTSI focuses on bringing
research from the laboratory to
the patient-commonly called
"bench to bedside"-by rapidly
translating research and scientific
findings to applications and
treatments that can make a
difference for patients.

The college is one of 12 at UF
involved in the CTSI, along $2,000,000
with the Institute of Food and $o
Agricultural Sciences, the North
Florida/South Georgia Veterans
Affairs Health System, Shands HealthCare and
other community partners around the state.


The college also received five grants from the U.S. Department
of Health and Human Services' Health Resources and Services
Administration (HRSA) totaling nearly $7 million to improve
access to care for underserved children and adults. The funding
will be used to enhance education for dental students and
specialists with an emphasis on public health dentistry. This will
ensure that tomorrow's dentists are culturally competent and
understand how to treat a diverse patient population.

Patient Care

Patient care is a critical element of our educational process. In order for dental students to demonstrate clinical
competency, we need a thriving clinical environment in which they can practice and learn. The college operates
clinical programs in Gainesville, St. Petersburg, Naples and Hialeah. Last year, our clinics completed 120,761
patient visits; of those, 76 percent were patients with annual household incomes at or below 200 percent of the
federal poverty level.
Through the college's Statewide Network for Community Oral Health, we provide patient care in 14 dental centers
in communities stretching from Tallahassee to Hialeah, serving people who lack access due to economic or other
challenging circumstances.

We are especially proud of the care
provided to special needs patients at
Tacachale, Florida's oldest and largest
community for the developmentally
disabled. For many years, UF College of
Dentistry faculty members Tim Garvey,
D.M.D., and Paul Burtner, D.M.D.,have
operated a clinic that provides treatment
to Tacachale residents and to develop-
mentally disabled Floridians from around
the state. Two years ago, a grant from
the Florida legislature allowed the
program to expand to treat more
developmentally disabled individuals
who are not Tacachale residents. The
clinic now provides dental care to these
special needs patients during evening
and weekend hours.


The results are heartwarming. Caregivers, who mostly learn about the clinic through word of mouth, come from across
Florida to bring special needs adult patients to the clinic. Garvey says that initially some of the patients had never
seen a dentist and had severe oral health problems. Two years later, he is gratified to see the same patients coming
back and only needing a dental cleaning-a simple way to measure phenomenal success.
Just as significantly, the state is considering replicating our program by opening similar dental care programs for non-
residents at some of the other residential facilities in the state, modeling them after the program at Tacachale.

Funding


A Special Day
More than 500,000
Florida residents are
estimated to have devel-
opmental disabilities such
as mental retardation,
cerebral palsy, autism,
spina bifida or Prader-
Willi syndrome.

Unfortunately, caregivers
often struggle to locate
dental care.

In 2010, the Special
Day Foundation
donated $100,000 to
fund a program at the
St. Petersburg Dental
Center (a partnership
between the UF College
of Dentistry and St.
Petersburg College)
so that special needs
patients can receive
dental care there.

Because of their support,
we are able to provide
specialized care for
patients in the community
who wouldn't otherwise
have access to dental care.

Florida Tomorrow

Ensuring a strong future for the College of Dentistry
The University of Florida's Florida Tomorrow fundraising
campaign is nearing completion and the College of Dentistry
has exceeded our fundraising goal of $15 million by more
than $785,000.

Campaign Goals
Raised to Date Goal
$3,155,330 $2,400,000
$525,499 $1,500,000
$4,615,164 $6,500,000
$7,490,388 $4,600,000
$15,786,381 $15,000,000


Our donors' enthusiasm about our college is directly attributable
to the quality and importance of the work our faculty and staff
do every day, and the amazing work our graduates perform
in their communities after graduation. Their dedication and
professionalism translates directly to the the stellar support
we received from individuals, foundations and businesses that
want to help us prepare and inspire the next generation of
dentists, dental specialists and scientists.

The campaign's success will certainly help shape the
college's future, but it will also have a ripple effect nationally
and internationally.
