Asda Dentist Anesthesiologists – LM-Service-Award

The Leonard Monheim Distinguished Service Award.

About the Monheim Award.

This Distinguished Service Award is named in honor of Leonard M. Monheim, D.D.S., whose many contributions to the art and science of anesthesiology and visionary leadership helped lay the foundation for a specialty in anesthesiology for dentistry. In 1949, Dr. Monheim established the first autonomous Department of Anesthesiology within a dental school (University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine) and served as the only anesthesiologist for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for nearly 20 years. In that same year, he initiated the first postdoctoral training program in anesthesia for dentists. His prolific teaching and writings in the discipline of dental anesthesiology provided a strong educational foundation for all dentists rotating on his anesthesia service and the first modern textbook on general anesthesia specifically for dentistry. It is only fitting that the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists honor this man’s contributions to our discipline and dentistry.
