Glick named dean of University at Buffalo dental school

Michael Glick, D.M.D., has been appointed dean of the School of Dental Medicine at the University at Buffalo, David L. Dunn, M.D., Ph.D., UB vice president for health sciences, announced in a press release.

Dr. Glick is professor of oral medicine and associate dean for oral and medical sciences at the School of Osteopathic Medicine at A. T. Still University (ATSU) in Arizona and editor of the Journal of the American Dental Association.

His appointment is effective Dec. 1.  He will succeed Richard Buchanan, D.M.D., who last year announced plans to step down as dean after seven years in the post to devote more time to national issues in dental education.

"As a superb scientist and clinician, Dr. Glick brings to the fore the many ways in which education and research informs dental education and clinical care," said UB Provost Satish K. Tripathi. "Under Dr. Glick's leadership, we believe the UB School of Dental Medicine's national reputation as a center for innovative dental education, progressive
clinical care and ground-breaking research will grow, achieving the top ranks of U.S. schools of dental medicine."

Dr. Glick was born in Sweden and received degrees in dental medicine at Hebrew University Hadassah School of Dental Medicine, Jerusalem, Israel, and Temple University in Philadelphia. He has held academic appointments in oral medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, New Jersey Dental School and, most recently, at A. T. Still University. He also serves as president of the American Board of Oral Medicine.
