 Overview
Dr. Cyril Meyerowitz is the professor and chair of the Department of Dentistry at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, as well as the director of the Eastman Institute for Oral Health at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

He received his dental degree from the University of Witwatersrand School of Dentistry (South Africa) in 1973, and an MS degree in Dental Research from the University of Rochester in 1979. He completed a residency in general dentistry at Eastman Dental Center/The Genesee Hospital/Strong Memorial Hospital and was a Clinical and Research Fellow at Eastman Dental Center/University of Rochester. He has been chair of the department of dentistry for over 20 years and was instrumental in the merger of Eastman Dental Center with the University of Rochester in 1998. In 1999 he became director of Eastman. He led the institution through the merger and the establishment of the Eastman Institute for Oral Health in 2009. Throughout his career he has been involved in dental education and research, serving nationally on the Commission on Dental Accreditation, the Commission for Change and Innovation of the American Dental Education Association and as chair of the Council of Dental Education and Licensure of the American Dental Association. He is currently chair of the New York State Academic Dental Centers, a collaboration of New York's five (5) academic dental institutions. Dr Meyerowitz' research has been translational in nature focusing on salivary dysfunction and its relationship to dental caries and the relationship of systemic diseases to oral health. He has also had an interest in educational research and in training clinical researchers. He has received NIH and commercial funding for his work, and has been the principal investigator on NIH clinical research training grant awards. He has published extensively in peer reviewed journals and contributed numerous chapters to text books. Dr. Meyerowitz has presented to health care, educational and governmental bodies at the local, state, national and international level, and has been honored by internationally recognized professional and academic organizations. He leads an institution that has consistently maintained a ranking in the top 10 NIDCR funded dental institutions for decades; it is currently ranked 3rd. His leadership and vision in the merger of Eastman Dental Center and the establishment the Eastman Institute for Oral Health has been exemplary. This institution, dedicated to the integration of research education and community service, has positioned dentistry at the University of Rochester for the future and is a model for other institutions. His interest and passion for mentoring young dental academics has produced fine young investigators and educators, a lasting hallmark of his substantial contributions to the profession and to research.
