Dr. Seok-Kyun Kim, Founder and President of the Korean Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry, has received the 2010 NYU College of Dentistry (NYUCD) Irwin Smigel Prize in Aesthetic Dentistry. Internationally renowned as one of the all-time great teachers and researchers in aesthetic dentistry, Dr. Kim has established more than 90 aesthetic dentistry centers in South Korea and has advanced the status of aesthetic dentistry among Korean dentists and the Korean public through thousands of hours of continuing education courses and mainstream media presentations.

The Smigel Prize was presented to Dr. Kim at the American Society for Dental Aesthetics Masters of Aesthetic Excellence Program held in San Antonio, Texas, in October.

NYUCD established the Smigel Prize in 2000 to recognize the pioneering achievements of Dr. Irwin Smigel, a graduate of the NYU College of Dentistry and the Founder and President of the American Society for Dental Aesthetics, and to honor significant contributions to the field by others throughout the world.

The Smigel Prize carries with it a $5,000 stipend and an award designed by Calvin Klein.

“Seok-Kyun Kim’s selection to receive the Smigel Prize is a fitting tribute to the pivotal role he has played in advancing aesthetic dentistry education,” said NYUCD Dean Charles N. Bertolami. “Like the person for whom the prize is named, Dr. Kim is devoted to continuing education in aesthetic dentistry as the basis for clinical excellence.”
