Rosenberg steps down

Oct. 7, 2011
Rosenberg has served as chair of the Quartararo Department of Endodontics at the college.

Dr. Paul A. Rosenberg, professor and chairman of the Dr. I.N. and Sally Quartararo Department of Endodontics at New York University since 1990, has announced that he will step down from the chairmanship once a successor is chosen.

Dr. Rosenberg will continue to be engaged in teaching and scholarly activities as a full- time faculty member in the Department of Endodontics.

As chairman, Dr. Rosenberg has shown leadership and has compiled a list of achievements. His chairmanship has been marked by national and international recognition of NYU’s postgraduate program in endodontics as one of the leading programs in that specialty.

The program was one of the first in the nation to introduce implants into an endodontic advanced education curriculum and to include endodontic residents in outreach programs to underserved areas. His residents have provided care in Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Alaska, and Maine.

He also introduced NYUCD’s first mentoring program for predoctoral students. A highlight of his chairmanship was the naming of the department in honor of Dr. I.N. and Sally Quartararo.

Dr. Rosenberg has had other notable achievements, including serving as the NYU College of Dentistry’s first associate dean for graduate programs, as a director of the American Board of Endodontics, and as a scientific reviewer for the Journal of Endodontics.

He has been recognized with the prestigious NYU Distinguished Teaching Award, the highest award presented for teaching by New York University. He has served as a Senator from the NYU College of Dentistry to the University Senate and as a member of the University Council.

In 2008, the NYU College of Dentistry recognized him with the naming of the Paul and Maxine Rosenberg Education Wing at the College of Dentistry. Dr. Rosenberg is an author and lectures frequently at the national and international levels. His publications and lectures are focused on the biologic causes and prevention of endodontic pain.
