Fundraising Efforts

In efforts to recognize alumni and colleagues who have made major contributions to the department we have unveiled plaques in our clinic with the names of our benefactors. Our fundraising efforts will continue with the goal of building a new state of the art orthodontic wing. Every contribution, small or large, will bring us closer to the dream of building a facility that will mirror the leadership, innovation, and great accomplishments of our department. We are counting on the generosity of our alumni, patients (we recently received a patient donation of $10,000), and our corporate partners. If you are interested in becoming part of the effort to achieve this goal please email us at:

Give a Smile Campaign

Dr. Elliott M. Moskowitz

NYUCD has named the Elliott M. Moskowitz Orthodontic Wing in recognition of a $1.2 million gift from Dr. Moskowitz, an alumnus of the NYU College of Dentistry and an internationally respected orthodontist, researcher, author, and editor for over 40 years. NYUCD has also created the Elliott M. Moskowitz "Give a Smile" Fund, which will build on Dr. Moskowitz's gift to secure the additional resources required for construction and renovation.

A long-time faculty member of the NYU Department of Orthodontics and a distinguished alumni leader, Dr. Moskowitz has served both as president of the NYU Dental Alumni Association and the NYU Orthodontic Alumni Society.
