Dr. Jonathan Ferencz graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1967 and New York University College of Dentistry in 1971. He joined the faculty at NYU as a part-time instructor in pre-clinical and later, clinical fixed prosthodontics and opened a private practice in midtown Manhattan in 1972. In 1980 Dr. Ferencz enrolled in the part-time Post-Graduate Program in Prosthodontics and, upon completion, in 1984, established the first Honors Programs in Prosthodontics for fourth year students at NYU. This program was responsible for the recruitment and training of many individuals who went on to become prominent prosthodontists. In 1990, Dr. Ferencz became Clinical Professor of Post-Graduate Prosthodontics and was certified by the American Board of Prosthodontics in 1998. In 2014 he was named Adjunct Professor of Restorative Dentistry at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.
In addition to private practice and part-time teaching at NYU and Penn, Dr. Ferencz has been very active in continuing dental education, having given more than 250 courses and programs throughout North America, South America, Europe and Asia. In the past few years he has become increasingly involved in clinical research at the Bluestone Center for Clinical Research at NYU. His areas of research have included high strength ceramics CAD/CAM and complete dentures. He has nearly 30 publications in the dental literature and has been a reviewer for two prosthodontic journals. His textbook, “High-Strength Ceramics: Interdisciplinary Perspectives” co-edited by Nelson Silva and Jose Navarro was published by Quintessence Publishing Co. in 2014.
