Estela Lazo, administrative associate for NYU Langone Dental Medicine Postdoctoral Residency Programs, will be retiring on June 18, 2021 after 14 years of dedicated service and commitment to the dental department. Estela has a long history with NYU/Lutheran Medical Center, but began her journey with the dental department in 2007.
Dr. Margaret Mason, Vice President and Senior Administrator, hired Estela to work for Lutheran Medical Center’s Dental Department with Dr. Anna D’Emilio, Vice President and Program Director, AEGD Program, and the late Dr. Silvia Perez-Spiess, Program Director, Pediatric Dentistry Program. Estela’s greatest memories of her time working with dental are of faculty development trips and office parties.
“Estela has been, in many ways, the backbone of the department. She is trustworthy, reliable, and has a gentle demeanor. I will miss her presence and her contribution,” said Dr. Mason.
She will be greatly missed by her friends and colleagues across the organization.
