PINES--Mitchell S., DDS. It is with sorrow that the faculty, students, and staff of the New York University College of Dentistry record the passing of a distinguished alumnus of the NYU College of Dentistry and a faculty member since 1975. Dr. Pines was a clinical professor in the departments of both cariology and comprehensive care and biomaterials and biomimetics. Dr. Pines mentored hundreds of students in dental research and clinical dentistry. A gentle and nurturing person, he never tired of helping the students he loved and respected so deeply. All who knew him learned from him. He will be deeply missed and remembered for his contributions to dental education and research. Charles N. Bertolami, DDS, DMedSc Herman Robert Fox Dean New York University College of Dentistry
