Event Will Include Update on Plans for Harold and Sheila Litvak Prosthodontics Wing

Dr. Harold Litvak

NYUCD will present a major prosthodontics symposium next fall to celebrate the contributions of Dr. Harold Litvak to prosthodontics education and patient care. The event will also honor the commitment of Dr. and Mrs. Litvak to the future of prosthodontics education at New York University by providing an update on plans for construction of the Harold and Sheila Litvak Prosthodontics Wing. The Litvak Prosthodontics Wing will be housed in the Graduate Center for Clinical Excellence, four floors designed to enhance interaction and synergy among the various dental specialties.

The Litvak Prosthodontics Symposium will feature contemporary, evidence-based, practical presentations by world-renowned educators, clinicians, and researchers to enable prosthodontists to expand both the scope and depth of the services they provide. The symposium will be moderated by Dr. Gerald Barrack, Dr. Thomas McGarry, Dr. Francis V. Panno, and Dr. Bruce Valauri.

Dr. Litvak, a Clinical Professor of Prosthodontics at NYU and a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics, is an international authority in prosthodontics and occlusion and a past president of The Greater New York Academy of Prosthodontics and the Northeastern Gnathological Society, and a recipient of the 2004 Greater New York Academy of Prosthodontics Foundation Distinguished Lecturer Award and the 2001 American College of Prosthodontists President's Award.
