AN INTERVIEW WITH:
Dr. Jonathan B. Levine
 
How long have you been practicing dentistry?
Since 1982 when I graduated the Goldman School of Dentistry. Today, I am back involved with the school as the chairman of the dean's advisory board.
 
What drew you to dentistry as a field?
The opportunity to help people in a professional setting without a life and death hospital feel. To make a difference in people's lives keeps me excited every day, whether I am practicing, teaching, or innovating new ways to deliver care.
 
Why did you become a specialist?
As the profession evolved, the specialty of prosthodontics defines the intersection of function and beauty where I love to live within my chosen profession. Every patient has different needs, and the goal for everyone is the same; the healthiest most beautiful smile possible.
 
What do you think is the common thread for all of the things you do?
The Cornell University board involvement, the NYU Advanced Aesthetics Program director role, the chairman of the BU dental board, innovating new products, being a lacrosse coach and starting an oral health foundation GLO/Good, it is to make a difference and impact positively in people's lives
