Brewer Conference History

Brewer Prosthodontic Conference 2012Dr. Alan BrewerCreated in 1979 by Eastman Dental's Dr. Gerald N. Graser and Dr. Jack Oster, the Allen A. Brewer Prosthodontics conference gives dentists in New York State an opportunity to obtain the latest information and techniques from renown prosthodontists.

In 1968, Dr. Brewer became the first chairman of the Department of Prosthodontics at Eastman Dental. During his ten-year tenure, Dr. Brewer built the prosthodontic program to the prominence it enjoys today.

Dr. Brewer was honored for his research by the Greater New York Academy of Prosthodontics and the International Association for Dental Research. He served as President of the Academy of Prosthodontics, where three of his former students followed in that same role. Dr. Brewer passed away in 1987, but his enthusiasm for education, research and the profession live on through generations of students and colleagues who were influenced by him both professionally and personally.
