Remembering Dr. Tibor Bertalan

Dr Tibor Bertalan passed away on September 10, 2020 at the age of 78. Dr. Bertalan joined our faculty in 2001 and until his retirement last year, was a constant presence in the Thursday afternoon multidisciplinary clinics. Tibor treasured his appointment as a clinical demonstrator and approached his students with a thoughtful, caring and gentle demeanor. Assistant Professor Dr. Earl Karanofsky shares a tribute to his close friend and colleague, Dr. Tibor Bertalan.

Dr. Tibor Bertalan, may your soul rest in Peace. You will be remembered well and with gratitude by the multiple dentists and dental students who have benefitted from your clinical guidance at McGill Dentistry.

The McGill dental community lost a colleague, mentor and friend with the sudden passing of Dr. Tibor Bertalan. Tibor enjoyed a fifteen year academic appointment to the faculty of Dentistry and was a valued member of the Thursday afternoon supervisory team. Tibor had a soft and gentle demeanor . He was committed to furthering the expertise of his students and and committed to the well being of our school. Dr. Bertalan's family assured me that he truly loved the faculty and treasured his Thursday afternoons at McGill.

To Agi, his wife, and his children Andrea and George, we extend our heart felt condolences and want to assure you that Tibor's smile and love of dentistry were infectious and he succeeded in passing that passion on to his students.
