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
