“There are hundreds of dentists in Rochester and throughout the world who owe their success in large part to Dr. Bejan Iranpour,” said Michael Yunker, D.D.S., assistant professor and assistant program director in EIOH's Advanced Education in General Dentistry program. “Dr. Iranpour was the epitome of what every dedicated and conscientious dentist aspired to be. In addition to being a fine oral surgeon, he was a true gentleman, dedicated to his family and his profession, and totally aware of the importance of education in professional development.”
To honor his exceptional work and countless contributions as an oral health educator, Dr. Bejan Iranpour, who passed away Feb. 15, was given the first Bejan Iranpour Award for Excellence in Clinical Education in 2000.
