It was with infinite sadness that the Board of Trustees of the New York State Dental Foundation shares the news that one its members, Dr. Mark A. Bauman, passed away suddenly on November 12.
Mark has been a member of the Foundation Board since 2016, during which time he was a key figure in planning the annual Foundations of Excellence Awards event. Primarily, he gravitated toward his natural role, that of introducing people and corporations to the Foundation’s mission, building bridges and nurturing relationships. He was a tireless advocate for developing ways in which to increase access to and improve oral health treatment outcomes of the underserved and of our veterans.
For now, rest in peace, our faithful colleague and beloved friend.
