Portraits of Implant Pioneers Are Hung in Their Honor
Both are ardent baseball fans and spring-training campers who once considered professional baseball careers. Both are also responsible for historic "firsts" at NYUCD: Dr. Linkow for the world's first professorship in implant dentistry, the Leonard I. Linkow Professorship in Implant Dentistry; Dr. Ashman for the world's first official department of implant dentistry, the Arthur Ashman Department of Implant Dentistry.
"We are so pleased
to have the portraits of these two giants in the field of implant
dentistry grace our campus," said Dean Alfano. "Luckily for us,
they chose dentistry instead of baseball."
