NYU College of Dentistry Establishes The Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics

June 6, 2003 – Dr. Michael C. Alfano, Dean of the NYU College of Dentistry (NYUCD) has announced the establishment of the Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics in recognition of a $1 million pledge to fund the program from Dr. and Mrs. Ferencz. “There can be no more fitting name for this program,” said Dean Alfano. “Dr. Ferencz, a prominent prosthodontist in New York City, a graduate of both NYUCD and its Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics, a Clinical Professor of Prosthodontics at NYUCD, and the current President of the American College of Prosthodontists, has always given generously of both his time and his financial support to his alma mater. This wonderful, new philanthropic act ensures that NYUCD’s postdoctoral program in prosthodontics will not only maintain its preeminence far into the future, but that it will also become the model of a 21st-Century specialty training program.”

Dr. Ferencz said: “Although my predoctoral education prepared me well for my early years in private practice, it was my graduate training in prosthodontics at NYU that truly shaped my career over the past 20 years. The program has a long history of outstanding scholarly activity coupled with clinical excellence and has produced some of the great leaders in our specialty. Maxine and I are hopeful that this gift will enable Dean Alfano to move ahead more rapidly in transforming NYUCD into the dental institution with the greatest impact in the world on the health of society.”
