January 7, 2008
N-213, 2007-08

The New York University College of Dentistry unveiled its newest facility, the Paul & Maxine Rosenberg Educational Wing, at a reception and ceremony on December 13, 2007.

The Rosenberg Wing, at approximately 8,000 square-feet, includes the new 50-seat Professor Emeritus Francis V. Panno Seminar Room for postgraduate students, plus a postgraduate study lounge and locker room, open 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week. The overarching theme in this portion of the facility’s design is providing postgraduate students with a facility dedicated to their specific needs. The Rosenberg Wing also includes an inner suite of offices and workspace for two complete departments, the Ashman Department of Periodontology & Implant Dentistry and the Department of Allied Health Programs.

Dr. Stuart M. Hirsch, Associate Dean for International Affairs and Development, emceed the event, and introduced Dr. Charles N. Bertolami, the Herman Robert Fox Dean of the NYU College of Dentistry. Dean Bertolami officially dedicated the facility, saying: “Paul Rosenberg’s enormous talents as an educator, clinician, researcher, and mentor merit this wonderful recognition. Paul has devoted decades of outstanding service to NYUCD as the Director of the Postgraduate Program in Endodontics; as the distinguished Professor and Chair of the Dr. I. N. and Sally Quartararo Department of Endodontics; and as a former Associate Dean for Graduate Programs. Moreover, in 1999, Paul was recognized by New York University with its Distinguished Teaching Award, NYU’s highest honor for teaching - a distinction attained only by the finest teachers.”

Clinical Professor of Endodontics and former NYU Alumni Trustee, Dr. Ignatius N. Quartararo, for whom, along with his wife, Sally, the Quartararo Department of Endodontics is named, spoke of Dr. Rosenberg’s vision for the department, which has led to its status as a global leader. “Throughout its history, endodontics at NYU has been a pacesetter,” said Dr. Quartararo, “especially its postgraduate program, which consistently ranks among the top programs of its kind in the world, and the credit goes in large measure to Paul.”

Several of Dr. Rosenberg’s former postgraduate students also paid tribute to him. Dr. Eric Bremer, Class of 2000, spoke of Dr. Rosenberg’s impact on his life both as a teacher and a mentor. “Studying with him gave me a course in life issues, as well as in specialty training,” he said. Dr. Pernard Micken, Class of 2007, said, simply, “No one is more deserving of this honor.”
