Dr. Jason Holden, a second-year student in the Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics, has become the seventh recipient of the annual Dr. Harold Litvak Junior Fellowship in Prosthodontics.

Dr. Holden received a DMD degree in 2003 from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. He plans to enter private practice after completing his specialty training and hopes to pursue a teaching career as well.

"Dr. Holden was awarded the fellowship because of his ability to excel academically, in patient satisfaction, and in his interaction with faculty and peers," said Dr. Farhad Vahidi, Director of the Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics.

The Litvak Fellowship was established in 1999 through a generous grant from Mrs. Adele Block in honor of her dentist, Dr. Litvak, a Clinical Professor of Prosthodontics at NYUCD and a generous donor to the college, for whom, together with his wife, the Harold and Sheila Litvak Prosthodontics Wing will be named. Mrs. Block is a member of the family that owned the Block Drug Company, Inc., a major producer of oral and general healthcare products, which is now a division of GlaxoSmithKline.
