Dr. Shanker Iyer, a second-year student in the Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics, has become the third recipient of the annual Dr. Harold E. Litvak Junior Fellowship in Prosthodontics. The Litvak Fellowship was established in 1999 through a generous gift from Mrs. Adele Block in honor of her dentist, Dr. Litvak, a clinical professor of prosthodontics at NYUCD. Mrs. Block is a member of the family that owned the Block Drug Company, Inc., a major producer of oral and general health products, which is now a division of Glaxo Smith Kline.

A native of Madra, India, Dr. Iyer received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in dentistry from Annamala University (1987) and the University of Bombay (1990) respectively, and a D.D.S. degree from NYUCD (1994).
