BECQUER AGUILA, Jorge Luis; VILA MORALES, Dadonim  y  OTANO LAFFITTE, Gladys María. The humanism of an illustrious scientist of cuban stomatology. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2011, vol.48, n.4, pp.416-425. ISSN 0034-7507.

It is difficult to summarize en a few pages the brilliant life of a person honoring the stomatology sciences in Cuba and in Latin America. For everybody knew him, the professor Rigoberto Otaño Lugo was always a symbol of camaraderie, diplomacy and politeness with everybody. Present paper is a historical review to collect biographical data more general of the deceased professor of the stomatology Faculty of the University of La Habana, Cuba. To this end authors interviewed in an open way to colleagues and relatives shared with him many years of work. The documentary sources included the staff file of such academic institution. Information was organized taking into account four basic features: its political and teaching-assisting performance, its scientific activity in the international scenario of the stomatology, as well as the medals received. Its simplicity and faith in the human improvement were distinctive qualities. Its wide smile and its maxim of never to hurt to nobody will be always remembered for all colleagues and friends.

Palabras clave : illustrious scientist; orthodontis.
