Dr. Antonella Milio, a secondyear student in the Jonathan and Maxine Ferencz Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics, has become the ninth recipient of the Dr. Harold Litvak Junior Fellowship in Prosthodontics.
Dr. Milio, who graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2005, plans to pursue a dual career in private practice and teaching after completing her specialty training.
"Dr. Milio 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 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 healthcare products, which is now a division of GlaxoSmithKline.
