NYUCD’s Department of Endodontics, the nation’s first formal department of endodontics, celebrated its 80th anniversary in June. The event included a scientific session, a slide presentation documenting the department’s participation in NYUCD’s spring 2007 outreach to Nicaragua, and a gala reception and dinner at Manhattan’s Water Club.

“As the home of the first formal department of endodontics at a dental school in the United States, NYUCD takes great pride in this important milestone,” said former Interim Dean Richard I. Vogel. “Throughout its history, endodontics at NYU has been a leader in the field, especially its specialty training program, which consistently ranks among the top programs of its kind in the world. The department also enjoys the distinction of being the first named department of endodontics in the United States, the Dr. Ignatius N. and Sally Quartararo Department of Endodontics. I know that everyone at NYUCD joins me in congratulating the faculty, students, staff, and alumni of this great department, and its distinguished chairman, Professor Paul A. Rosenberg, and wishing them a joyous and memorable 80th anniversary celebration.”
