Vincent G. Kokich, Sr., DDS, MSD
Affiliate Professor, Department of Orthodontics
Dr. Kokich was an Affiliate Professor in Orthodontics. He passed away unexpectedly on July 24, 2013. Vince was a part of our Department for over 40 years, first as a graduate student, then later as a teacher, researcher, lecturer, mentor, and friend. He was truly a giant in the field of orthodontics, well known for his expertise in interdisciplinary treatment. He gave more than 900 invited lectures all over the world during his career. In 2010, he was appointed Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. As you might imagine, Vince was an extremely busy individual, and yet, he always made time to discuss a difficult case with a student, or brainstorm about new ideas with a colleague. He will be missed dearly.
