What to Expect for Your Interview

The University of Florida College of Dentistry (UFCD) DMD Interview is being conducted in-person. A typical interview day includes one open-file interview with 3-4 members of the Admissions Committee that will last approximately 20-30 minutes, lunch with dental students and faculty, a student-led tour of the College of Dentistry and the Academic Health Center, and presentations from staff and faculty. We encourage you to bring comfortable shoes to wear on the tour.

Recording is prohibited. DMD interviews MAY NOT be recorded by either the UF College of Dentistry or by interviewees. Since all parties have not agreed, Florida law prohibits applicants from recording their interview or any associated presentation

Traveling to UFCD

UF College of Dentistry is located at the west end of the Academic Health Center on the corner of Archer Road and Center Drive (1395 Center Drive, Gainesville, FL 32610).

Visitor parking is available in the parking garage on the west side of the building. From Center Drive, turn west on Mowry Road, take the next left between parking garages, and then a final left turn into the visitor parking lot. The daily parking fee is $20 (You will need to request a parking pass from us once you arrive to your interview, to have this fee waived).

Your designated check-in room is located on the third floor of the Dental Tower. As you enter the West Entrance of the Academic Health Center, continue straight ahead on the blue path. Near stop 16 (vending), turn left toward the Dental Tower elevators. Take the elevator up to the third floor. Once you exit the elevator follow the DMD Interview signs to your designated check-in room.
