Dr. Martin D. Levin (D’72, GD’74)
Dr. Martin D. Levin (D’72, GD’74) recently assumed a new leadership role within the Penn Dental Medicine Board of Overseers, officially appointed as the new chairman at the Overseers meeting in early November.
Dr. Levin takes over this office from outgoing Chair Richard A. Collier (W’66, WG’67), who held the post since 1999. “Penn Dental Medicine is most grateful for the thoughtful leadership Richard has provided as Chair and equally appreciative to Marty for his commitment to the school in taking on this new role,” says Dean Marjorie Jeffcoat.
Dr. Levin’s ties to Penn Dental Medicine are many. He earned his DMD and postdoctoral certificate in endodontics from the School in 1972 and 1974, respectively, and has been an active member of the Board of Overseers and the Penn Dental Medicine Alumni Society Board for several years. Dr. Levin also co-chairs “The Hat in the Ring Society,” which raises funds to benefit the School’s endodontic residents.
Dr. Levin has a private practice in endodontics in Chevy Chase, MD. Among his other professional activities, he is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and is a member of the College of Diplomates and Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society. Dr. Levin has authored numerous papers, lectured internationally, and is also a consultant at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Postgraduate Endodontics at Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine.
