Last October, more than 100 friends and colleagues of Dr. Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz paid tribute to the couple's generosity and commitment to postgraduate prosthodontics education at NYU by participating in a gala celebration at the legendary Le Cirque Restaurant in Manhattan. Two years ago, Dr. and Mrs. Ferencz donated $1 million to establish the Dr. Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics. Former CBS news anchor Dan Rather, a patient of Dr. Ferencz's, was the guest speaker.

In his tribute to the Ferenczs, Dean Alfano said, "There can be no more fitting name than the Dr. Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics. Dr. Ferencz has always given generously of both his time and his financial support to his alma mater. This wonderful, latest philanthropic act by Jonathan and Maxine ensures that our postgraduate program in prosthodontics will become the model of a 21st century specialty training program."
