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

Dr. Landolt received a DMD degree in 1999 from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, School of Dentistry, and graduated in 2004 from the NYU Advanced Program for International Dentists in Implant Dentistry. She plans to pursue a dual career in private practice and teaching after completing her specialty training.

"Dr. Landolt was awarded the fellowship because of her ability to excel academically, in patient satisfaction, and in her 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. Mrs. Block is a member of the family that owned the Block Drug Company, Inc., a major producer of oral and general health-care products, which is now a division of GlaxoSmithKline.
