Dr. Stanley N. Turetzky, '62, Assistant Professor of Diagnostic Science and Urgent Care and Director of Emergency Services, has received the 2005 Alumni Meritorious Service Award, an all-University Award presented annually to a respected and distinguished graduate of any school, college, or division at NYU who has demonstrated extraordinary service and continuing devotion to his or her alma mater and who embodies the NYU motto, Persevere and Excel.

Dr. Turetzky is also the recipient of the NYU Founders Day Award, among many others, and a member of OKU, Sigma Xi, and Phi Beta Kappa. He has served as president and program chairman of the Manhattan Dental Guild since 1991.

"Stan Turetzky is an exemplary alumnus," said Dean Alfano. "His devotion to educating generations of NYU College of Dentistry students over the last four decades is truly exceptional and extends well beyond his official duties. Stan is beloved by his current and former students, most of whom he knows by name, regardless of when they graduated. He well deserves acknowledgement as embodying the spirit of alumni devotion and distinction that brings pride to New York University."
