Litvak Prosthodontics Wing Dedicated at NYU College of Dentistry

December 1, 2008

With family and friends looking on, Harold and Sheila Litvak joined Dr. Charles N. Bertolami, the Herman Robert Fox Dean of the NYU College of Dentistry, last June to cut the ribbon that officially dedicated the Harold and Sheila Litvak Prosthodontics Wing.

“The name Harold Litvak is synonymous with excellence in prosthodontics,” said Dean Bertolami.” “It is therefore a pleasure and a privilege for the NYU College of Dentistry to have the Litvak name permanently associated with our institution.”

The Litvak Wing, housed on the fourth floor of the Witkin Graduate Center for Clinical Excellence, honors Dr. Litvak’s nearly 40 years of leadership in postdoctoral prosthodontics education and practice. Funding for the Litvak Wing came from a generous leadership gift from Dr. and Mrs. Litvak, as well as from gifts from friends and colleagues of the couple.

Dr. Jonathan Ferencz, Clinical Professor of Prosthodontics and a long-time friend of the Litvaks, who, together with his wife, Maxine, made a major gift several years ago to establish the Dr. Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics, said, “Harold Litvak is dedicated to postdoctoral education, and has taught, influenced, and inspired legions of NYU prosthodontics specialty program graduates. Now, with the creation of the Litvak Prosthodontics Wing, NYUCD has an enormous opportunity to further advance prosthodontics education, research, and patient care.”
