"What makes me most proud about Jack's accomplishments as Dean is that he has brought to dental education a concept he started as a dental student at NYU in the late 60s. Jack was a strong leader as a dental student, serving as class president all four years during a time of student unrest throughout the country. Despite his long hair and outspoken demeanor, he led a group of students in providing free oral health services to a group of underprivileged individuals in the East Village who had no access to care. His commitment to community service and outreach has been his mission since that time, guiding him through a career in public health and culminating in his becoming the founding Dean in Arizona. His example of community service and outreach by dental faculty and students has truly served as a model for dental education in the United States."
