2020 Robert A. Uchin Award

Recently, two of the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) past presidents had the opportunity to present an achievement in excellence award for the best postgraduate resident during his time at NSU College of Dental Medicine. Ironically, the award named the “Robert A. Uchin Award” was given to Alex Mehler, DMD by Robert Uchin, DDS himself (right), former dean at the college, joined by James L. Gutmann, DDS (left), present chair and postgraduate program director of endodontics at the college — both being past presidents of the AAE. Over the years, multiple past presidents have been involved with or are teaching at NSU, including the late Dr. Philip W. Cohen, and Drs. Samuel O. Dorn, Harmon R. Katz and Shep Goldstein, in addition to Drs. Uchin and Gutmann.
