Dr. Don-Neil Brotman, a retired Baltimore dentist and a pilot, died Feb. 16 of heart failure at Sinai Hospital. The longtime Pikesville resident was 80.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Dr. Brotman was a 1949 graduate of City College, and after attending the University of Maryland, College Park, he entered the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, where he earned his dental degree in 1955.

He served in the Army Dental Corps from 1955 to 1957 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, where he attained the rank of captain.

Dr. Brotman practiced dentistry for more than 40 years from an office in the Horizon House on North Calvert Street, until retiring in 1997.

He returned to work in 2002 when he joined the staff of McDonogh Dental Associates in Owings Mills. He continued working until the fall of 2012.

Dr. Brotman had been president of the Baltimore City Dental Society, Maryland State Dental Association, Maryland Board of Dental Examiners, and American Association of Dental Examiners.

He also had been president of the Affiliate Section of the American Academy of Periodontology and numerous other professional organizations. He was also a member of the University of Maryland Foundation.

He had chaired the Maryland Council of Alzheimer's and had served on the Maryland Council on HIV Prevention and Treatment.

Dr. Brotman had earned a pilot's license and a Air Transport Rating and Gold Seal Flight Instructor Certificate. He also earned commercial glider and seaplane ratings and had been appointed an accident prevention counselor for Maryland by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Some of the planes he had owned and flew included a twin-engine Aztec, a Piper Arrow and a Cherokee 140.

In a 1987 article in The Baltimore Sun, Dr. Brotman, who was a self-avowed hot dog fan, didn't think twice about flying to Atlantic City for a hot dog at Nathan's on the Boardwalk.

"Nathan's sells 'the world's greatest kosher hot dog,' you know," Dr. Brotman told a reporter at the time.

"He stopped flying about 15 years ago for health reasons," said his daughter, Barbara Kaylor of Owings Mills.

Dr. Brotman enjoyed collecting and sharing his wines with family and friends.

"He had thousands of bottles," said Ms. Kaylor.

Dr. Brotman founded and served as president for 20 years of the Diving Dental Society, and had chaired the wine committee for years at the Center Club, where he was a member.

He also was a national bridge master and painter.

He was a member of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation.

Services were held Feb. 17 at Sol Levinson & Bros. in Pikesville.

In addition to his daughter, Dr. Brotman is survived by his wife of 59 years, the former Phyllis Block, a public relations executive and founder of Image Dynamics Inc.; a son, Sol Brotman of Atlantic Beach, Fla.; and three granddaughters
