A major gift from Dr. and Mrs. Harold
Litvak and their friends and colleagues will create the Harold and

interaction and synergy among the various specialties. In addition

surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, and periodontics.
“The Harold and Sheila Litvak Prosthodontics Wing

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
