Meet AO International Communications Officer Ivan Moldauer

 

Moldauer 2018It is a great honor to take over the position as International Communications Officer and a privilege to thank Steven Spitz for his excellent work and commitment to Alpha Omega.  At the same time, I feel that this job certainly comes with a lot of challenges.  However, I am optimistic about this new endeavor and will try my best to spread the word faster and effectively about all the great work that is done at Alpha Omega.

I follow the footsteps of my grandfather and father. My grandfather practiced dentistry in Czernowitz and because of the Shoah, he found himself becoming the first dentist in former British Honduras (now Belize).  My father started practicing dentistry 42 years ago and still practices in Guatemala and Belize. Thanks to my mentor Dr. Phil Levine, a renowned forensic dentist from Pensacola, Florida, I had the opportunity to come to the United States and pursue my dream of becoming an Endodontist. I completed my training at Nova Southeastern University, where I serve now as Surgical Course Co-Director of Surgical Endodontics.

The next few years will be a great opportunity for Alpha Omega to expand globally. Maintaining Compendium's success in terms of high-quality papers will be the utmost goal.  Along with trying to further increase internationality and breadth of topics, the set task will be quite challenging and therefore I ask for your continued support and participation in our Journal.

I look forward to working with all of you.

Sincerely,

Ivan Moldauer
International Communications Officer
