Emergency Area to Be Named in
Honor of Dr. Stanley N. Turetzky

Dr. Stanley Turetzky

In recognition of a major gift from Dr. Stanley N. Turetzky, ’62, Assistant Professor of Diagnostic Science and Urgent Care and Director of Emergency Services, NYUCD will name the Emergency Area in his honor. Dr. Turetzky has supervised NYUCD’s Emergency Area for many years and knows first-hand its importance to the more than 26,000 New Yorkers who use it annually, many of whom have nowhere else to turn in a dental emergency.

“Without NYUCD, I wouldn’t be where I am,” said Dr. Turetzky. “It’s the reason I’ve been able to live a wonderful life, and it’s a privilege for me to give something back to my alma mater in return for all it has given me.”

“Stan Turetzky is a true champion of urgent care for New Yorkers,” said Dean Alfano. “People come to NYUCD for treatment for acute pain and suffering, much of it free of charge because they are unable to pay for care, are the working poor with no insurance, or are ineligible for Medicaid. With Stan at the helm of this clinic, we are assured that the NYUCD philosophy of never turning away a person in pain is carried out. Stan’s gift also reflects his pride in his alma mater and his conviction that we are moving in the right direction.”
