Memorial Service Pays Tribute to Dr. Donald Kitzis

Dr. Donald Kitzis, who passed away on Thanksgiving Day, 2007, was remembered at a memorial service in April hosted by the Department of Prosthodontics to honor his lifetime of professional excellence and service. A member of the Class of 1946, Dr. Kitzis had been associated with NYUCD as a Clinical Professor of Prosthodontics since 1969. Dr. Leila Jahangiri, Assistant Professor and Chair of the Department of Prosthodontics, said of Dr. Kitzis, “We all remember Donald as someone who challenged us to rethink traditional views of prosthodontics. He was an inspiration and a mentor to generations of NYU-trained prosthodontists. We loved him and miss him deeply.”
