officers of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, who
include Dr. Kenneth W. Judy, the ICOI’s Cofounder and Cochairman,
a member of the Class of 1968, and a Clinical Professor of Implant
Dentistry at NYUCD, have sent their membership copies of the AMA’s
updated Quick Reference Guide to Biological Weapons, along with their
endorsement of bioterrorism preparedness education for dentists. Their
letter cited Dean Alfano for his help in making the guide available.
Dean Alfano had earlier sent copies of the guide to all NYUCD alumni.
“I congratulate Dr. Judy and his colleagues on their initiative and
leadership,” said Dean Alfano. “Having the support of the prestigious
ICOI in raising awareness of the potential role of dentists in bioterrorism
preparedness sets an example for other organizations to get involved
and help educate their own members about what dentists can do to make
our world a safer place in which to live.”
