John Greenspan, BDS, PhD: 1938 – 2023

Dr. Greenspan's research career spanned more than five decades and included numerous groundbreaking discoveries in the field of oral medicine. He was particularly interested in the relationship between oral health and HIV/AIDS, and his work helped establish the field of oral HIV/AIDS research.

Throughout his career and until the very end of his life, Dr. Greenspan remained a devoted teacher and mentor, inspiring and guiding generations of dental and medical investigators. He supervised or mentored over 120 physicians and dental scientists. He was generous with his guidance and advice to those he mentored.
