The New York University College of Dentistry (NYUCD) will name the Dr Elliott M. Moskowitz Orthodontic Wing in recognition of a $1.2 million gift from Moskowitz. In addition, NYUCD has created the Elliott M. Moskowitz Give a Smile Fund to provide services to low-income children in need of orthodontic services.

Elliott Moskowitz, DDS, MSd , is an alumnus of the NYU College of Dentistry and has worked as an orthodontist, researcher, author, and editor for more than 40 years. He is also a long-time faculty member of the NYU Department of Orthodontics. Moskowitz has served both as president of the NYU Dental Alumni Association and the NYU Orthodontic Alumni Society.

“I made my gift in order to give something meaningful back to my department,” said Moskowitz. “For me that means providing the seed money to build physical facilities that are commensurate with the department’s increasingly visible role in the profession and the community.”
