Meets Mahidol University’s New Dean for International Relations

NYUCD Director of Emergency Services Dr. Stanley N. Turetzky visited Thailand last January to honor Dr. M. L. Theerathavaj Srithavaj, DDS ’94 and PG Prosthodontics ‘96, on his appointment as Associate Dean for International Relations at Mahidol University Faculty of Dentistry in Bangkok. Dr. Srithavaj is overseeing an expansion of several special Mahidol programs that are open to overseas students, including MS degree programs in maxillofacial prosthetics and dental biomaterials science and an MS and PhD Program in oral biology. Dr. Srithavaj and a group of his colleagues visited NYUCD in September to discuss possible research and distance-learning collaborations.
