Dr. Dennis P. Tarnow, Professor and Chair of the Ashman Department of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry, received a warm welcome in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in April at the New Dental Era First National Guard Dental Symposium, where he presented a lecture entitled "The Interdisciplinary Approach to Advanced Esthetics with Implants." Dr. Tarnow was hosted by a group of Saudi alumni of the Advanced Program in Implant Dentistry.
Then it was on to South Korea, where Dr. Tarnow spoke on " When to Extract or Save A Tooth in the Esthetic Zone " at a meeting of the international Federation of Esthetic Dentistry, which drew over 2,500 attendees from around the world. Dr. Tarnow was joined in Korea by Dr. Sang choon Cho, Clinical Associate Professor of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry, who presented a lecture entitled " Treatment of Alveolar Ridge Deformities in the Esthetic Zone Utilizing Block and Soft Tissue Grafts — A Technique to Increase Predictability. " NYUCD was also represented at the meeting by three graduates of the Advanced Program in Implant Dentistry, Dr. Constantinos Kountouras, Dr. Sung Il Eom and Dr. Yoonje Jang.
A highlight of the visit was a private dinner in honor of Dr. Tarnow and Dr. Cho hosted by 45 Korean dentists who had graduated from the Advanced Program in Implant Dentistry. As a symbol of the high esteem in which they hold their former teacher and mentor, the group pledged more than $ 250,000 to the campaign to create the Tarnow Wing for Periodontology and Implant Dentistry at NYUCD.
