The dental laboratory technology community is mourning the loss of Vincent Alleluia, MDT, CDT, who died April 11 at the age of 92.
Alleluia worked in the profession for more than 50 years and served as Chairman of the American Society of Master Dental Technologists (ASMDT), where he taught IDT Editor-in-Chief Peter Pizzi, MDT, CDT, and Executive Editor Daniel Alter, MSc, MDT, CDT, among many others. Alleluia also was a founding member of IDT’s Editorial Advisory Board.
“Vinny’s passing is a huge loss for the dental industry, and his legacy, mentorship, and teachings will undoubtedly be forever engrained in many professionals’ careers and lives. I was blessed to have had the opportunity to work closely with Vinny as my career evolved, and I have his family, and his ASMDT family, in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time,” Alter says.
