Conference History

About the Handelman Conference


The conference was established to pay tribute to Dr. Stanley L. Handelman and his success as an educator, researcher, mentor and friend. Dr. Handelman’s career at the University of Rochester Eastman Institute for Oral Health spanned nearly 50 years. The Institute’s General Dentistry Residency Program has become preeminent among its contemporaries. It serves as a model for the development of accreditation standards for advanced educational programs in general dentistry. Dr. Handelman has been described as the ‘father of postdoctoral general dentistry education’ and a fund has been established in his honor.
