The Massachusetts Section, also known as the J. Murray Gavel/Norman Becker Chapter of the PFA was so named to honor Dr. Gavel who was a past president of the PFA and the former Dean of Tufts Dental School and is considered the Tufts Man of the Century.  Norman Becker was the long-time Editor of the Journal of the Massachusetts Dental Society and a tireless leader for the PFA for decades.  When Norman passed away, the membership of the chapter voted to add his name to Dr Gavel's in naming the chapter.
