Comfort Dental founder gives Marquette $1M

Marquette University School of Dentistry alumnus Rick Kushner, DDS, will donate $1 million to the Building for the Future campaign, which will support the school's 40,000-sq-ft expansion.

Dr. Kushner, who graduated from the School of Dentistry in 1977, founded Comfort Dental, a franchise of 100 clinics in 10 states, more than 35 years ago.

Dr. Kushner's gift will help create a fifth clinic within the school, to be named the Comfort Dental clinic, which will allow the patient care practice at the school to increase by an additional 24 stations.

The School of Dentistry honored Dr. Kushner with its Outstanding Dental Service Award in 2009. The award honors outstanding contributions to dentistry either through practice, education, or public service.
