NYU Dentistry Alums Drawn to Boca Woods
Is it just coincidence, or something more, that explains why large numbers of dentists, including NYU Dentistry graduates, are retiring to Boca Woods, Florida? At last count, 40 dentists have recently moved to the community, including the following NYU Dentistry alumni: Dr. Harry Goldstein, Class of 1945; Dr. Marvin Lash, Class of 1946; Dr. Sam Aaronson, Class of 1948; Dr. Bernard Kirman, Class of 1949; and Dr. Irwin Rosen, Class of 1954. Could it be something in the air?
