Recently, Gary Goldstein, Director, Dental Program, and Doctor of Dental Surgery, in Albany, N.Y., was inducted as a fellow into the Pierre Fauchard Academy.
Every year, the Pierre Fauchard Academy selects dentists Involved in community service from around the world to join as active fellows. These dentists have contributed to the art and science of dentistry, and served their communities.
Dr. Goldstein sees this honor as a chance to shine a positive light on EmblemHealth.
“I’m a big believer in partnering,” said Dr. Goldstein. “EmblemHealth has been very supportive of employees like me. We’re encouraged to be part of the community and to volunteer.”
Dr. Goldstein’s support for his community ranges from oral health screening of Special Olympics athletes, to leading a New York State initiative supporting oral health for people with developmental disabilities. He is a member of the advisory board of the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities.
“Life is about working together − breaking down silos, communicating as honestly and plainly as possible,” he said.
