Dr. Lurie is professor and chair of the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Diagnostic Sciences and chair of the Section of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, Department of Oral Health and Diagnostic Sciences, at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. He has John Dempsey Hospital appointments in the Departments of Dentistry and Diagnostic Imaging. He has been a full-time member of the dental school faculty since 1973, during which time he has done R0-1 research on radiation carcinogenesis, administered predoctoral and graduate educational programs, performed clinical research, led students on service trips to South America, and performed imaging care on patients in both dental and medical radiology settings.
He is past president of the School of Dental Medicine Council, co-founder of the UConn Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancer Clinic, and a member of numerous dental school and institutional committees. He is also an active member of his specialty nationally, being a fellow and having served as president of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, and past president of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology. Dr. Lurie has more than 100 publications in the refereed literature, and numerous presentations to local, state, national and international organizations.
Dr. Lurie is presently co-chair of the National Committee for Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) Scientific Committee 4-5 which just issued a new NCRP Report, Report No. 177, Radiation Protection and Safety in Dentistry and OMF Radiology. He was co-founder and head of the dentistry section of the Image Gently Campaign.
