History of the Rosenthal Institute

Named in honor of it's principle benefactor, the Rosenthal Institute is wholly dedicated to fostering continuing education, research and patient care in current and emerging techniques in aesthetic dentistry. The institute also houses NYUCD'S continuing education program, which annually attracts more than 4,000 dentists from more than 20 countries, making it perhaps the most far reaching program of its kind in the world. Dr. Rosenthal's vision and generosity have helped to create a cadre of aesthetic dentist's who can make aesthetic dental services more broadly available to the general public.
