NYUCD Endodontics Chair Dr. Paul A. Rosenberg Steps Down after Two Decades of Leadership

September 30, 2011

Dr. Paul A. Rosenberg, professor and chairman of the Dr. I.N. and Sally Quartararo Department of Endodontics at NYU since 1990, has announced that he will be stepping down from the chairmanship once a successor is chosen. Dr. Rosenberg will continue to be engaged in teaching and scholarly activities as a full- time faculty member in the Department of Endodontics.

As chairman, Dr. Rosenberg has shown true leadership and has compiled a list of significant achievements. His chairmanship has been marked by national and international recognition of NYU’s postgraduate program in endodontics as one of the leading programs in that specialty.

The program was one of the first in the nation to introduce implants into an endodontic advanced education curriculum and to include endodontic residents in outreach programs to underserved areas. His residents have provided care in Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Alaska, and Maine. He also introduced NYUCD’s first mentoring program for predoctoral students.  A highlight of his chairmanship was the naming of the department in honor of Dr. I.N. and Sally Quartararo.

Dr. Rosenberg has had other notable achievements, including serving as the NYU College of Dentistry’s NYUCD’s first associate dean for graduate programs, as a director of the American Board of Endodontics, and as a scientific reviewer for the Journal of Endodontics. He has been recognized with the prestigious NYU Distinguished Teaching Award, the highest award presented for teaching by New York University. He has served as both a Senator from the NYU College of Dentistry to the University Senate and as a member of the University Council.  

In 2008, the NYU College of Dentistry recognized him with the naming of the Paul and Maxine Rosenberg Education Wing at the College of Dentistry. Dr. Rosenberg is a prolific author and lectures frequently at both the national and international levels. His publications and lectures are focused on the biologic causes and prevention of endodontic pain.
