Levin Group Inc., a leading dental consulting firm dedicated to improving the lives of dentists, has announced that CEO Roger P. Levin has been named Chair of the Board of Visitors (BOV) at the Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry (NMD) in Baltimore.

Dr. Levin, a third-generation dentist and founder of Baltimore-based Levin Group, will serve as the NMD's third BOV Chair. A 2004 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award winner in the category of consulting, Dr. Levin brings 20 years of dental consulting experience to the NMD in his new position.

Among the immediate initiatives planned by Dr. Levin during his tenure as Chair of the BOV is the development of a Baltimore-Washington foundation designed to enhance dental care and hygiene education for underprivileged school children.

Rosemary Fetter, Executive Director of the NMD, said, "Dr. Levin has been a significant supporter of the Museum since its inception. As Chair of the Board of Visitors, Dr. Levin will surely continue his tremendous work with the Museum that he has demonstrated as Membership Chair since 2002. We are very excited to have him on board."

The position of Chair of the Board of Visitors at the Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry carries a two-year charge. Dr. Levin follows Dr. John Patterson as Chair.

"I believe we all share in the obligation to give back to the community and to the field of dentistry," said Dr. Levin. "Personally, I have been fortunate to serve on dozens of boards and hold numerous chairmanship positions over the past 20 years, but this honor by the National Museum of Dentistry is truly special to me. The driving mission at Levin Group has always been to improve the lives of dentists through consulting, practice management, and financial planning guidance. Now, I embark on a mission to improve the level of national awareness and much deserved respect to the Museum for its wonderful efforts in dentistry."
