In recognition of a major gift from Dr. Stuart Super, a
prominent Manhattan oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and his
wife, Tibby, NYUCD has named the Dr. Stuart and Tibby Super
Orthognathic Surgery Conference Suite in their honor. The
suite is located within the Gary and Alyse Ruth Oral and
Maxillofacial Surgery Wing.
Dr. Super currently serves as a clinical assistant
professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery at NYUCD and
was for many years the director of the Advanced Education
Program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Bellevue
Hospital Center. Dr. and Mrs. Super are cofounders of the
Dr. Stuart and Tibby Super Foundation for Facial
Deformities, which provides treatment for financially
disadvantaged young adults with facial deformities,
enabling them to lead normal lives.
"I cannot think of a better way to honor the generosity
of Stuart and Tibby Super than to join their names to our
orthognathic surgery conference suite, a facility central
to our efforts to provide the best possible treatment
planning for our oral and maxillofacial surgery patients,"
said Dean Bertolami. "Now, the Supers' commitment to
improving lives has been appropriately recognized."
