Harold and Sheila Litvak Prosthodontics
Wing to Be Built at NYUCD
 


Dr. and Mrs. Harold Litvak

A major gift from Dr. and Mrs. Harold Litvak and their friends and colleagues will create the Harold and Sheila Litvak Prosthodontics Wing at NYUCD. The Litvak Prosthodontics Wing will be housed in the Graduate Center for Clinical Excellence (GCCE), which will consist of four full floors designed to enhance interaction and synergy among the various specialties. In addition to prosthodontics, the GCCE will include endodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, and periodontics.

“The Harold and Sheila Litvak Prosthodontics Wing recognizes Dr. Litvak’s over 35 years of professional excellence, leadership, and generosity” said Dean Alfano. “Dr. Litvak is dedicated to postdoctoral education and has taught, influenced, and inspired legions of NYU prosthodontics specialty program graduates. Indeed, the name Harold Litvak is synonymous with excellence in prosthodontics. With the creation of this new facility, NYUCD has an enormous opportunity to further advance prosthodontics education, research, and patient care.”

Dr. Litvak, a Clinical Professor of Prosthodontics and a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics, is an international authority in prosthodontics and occlusion and a past-president of The Greater New York Academy of Prosthodontics and the Northeastern Gnathological Society, and a recipient of the 2004 Greater New York Academy of Prosthodontics Foundation Distinguished Lecturer Award and the 2001 American College of Prosthodontists President’s Award, among many other honors.
