Shariq Najeeb is a dentist, academician, author and a researcher. He completed his Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Karachi in 2010. He acquired his Master of Dental Materials at the School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield. Soon after his Masters, he served as the course director and lecturer for Dental Materials Science at Al-Farabi Dental Colleges, Saudi Arabia. His research project in Sheffield focused on the production of a novel, inexpensive tissue regenerative material. The results from that project were published in the Dental Materials journal. Overall, he has contributed to the publication of more than 30 peer-reviewed publications. Furthermore, he has served as a reviewer in numerous reputable journals, including the Journal of Clinical Periodontology and Dental Traumatology. He currently resides in Calgary, Alberta
