Liebowitz CS (1976), Letter to the Editor, Operative Dentistry, 1(2) 75.
I enjoyed the first issue of Operative Dentistry and am looking forward to subsequent issues. It is a journal which was greatly needed in this age of specialization.
Being an East Coast dentist, as the saying goes, I find that use of gold foil is virtually unknown here and I personally feel this is unfortunate. While in the Air Force I was stationed
with dentists who were educated on the West Coast, and their knowledge of golds was quite competent. I regret that there are so few, if any, opportunities to re-learn use of gold in this area. Perhaps the journal will cause rebirth of interest in gold foils here and study clubs may be formed. Until such time as that occurs, could you perhaps give me the titles of a few texts or articles that are current on the subject?
Thank you for your attention.
Very truly yours, Charles S. Liebowitz Smith Haven Mall Lake Grove, NY 11755
