This highly regarded achievement has only been conferred three other times in the history of the Academy prior to its presentation to Dr. Alpher in July 2012.

Additionally, Dr. Alpher's remarkable efforts to advance treatment of Craniofacial Pain and Sleep Disorders have led to his election by vote of membership to the Board of Directors of the Academy, as well as the Master of Excellence Degree following the successful passing of a rigorous written and oral examination, thesis and defense of three treated cases. Recently, he has also had the pleasure of being appointed Secretary of the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at George Washington University Medical Center. Both the Oral Surgery and Trauma Center at the facility are now fully equipped to offer optimal training to oral surgery residents as a result of Dr. Alpher's dedication in mentoring its reorganization.
