Dr. Subtelny, craniofacial orthodontics expert, dies

December 18, 2014 Pittsford, N.Y. — Dr. J. Daniel Subtelny died Sept. 17 here. He was 92.

Dr. Subtelny led an esteemed 60-year career as an orthodontist with expertise in craniofacial treatment and an educator, including noted roles as chair and faculty member at University of Rochester Medical Center’s Eastman Institute for Oral Health.

URMC lauded Dr. Subtelny with such honors as establishing scholarships and professorships in his name, according to the school’s website. Per the site, “In 2000 the Eastman Orthodontic Alumni Association and the University of Rochester established the J. Daniel Subtelny Endowed Chair and Professorship to preserve his educational legacy. This professorship will not only serve as a legacy for Dr. Subtelny, but will recognize the achievements of future EIOH Orthodontic Department Chairs and provide vital financial support to assist them with the division’s educational and research programs into perpetuity.”

In 1997, the school also renovated and named the orthodontic clinic at Eastman Dental in Dr. Subtelny’s honor.

A memorial service and private burial were held in late September.
