Advanced Dental Biomaterials is an invaluable reference for researchers and clinicians within the biomedical industry and academia. The book can be used by both an experienced researcher/clinician learning about other biomaterials or applications that may be applicable to their current research or as a guide for a new entrant into the field who needs to gain an understanding of the primary challenges, opportunities, most relevant biomaterials, and key applications in dentistry.
- Provides a comprehensive review of the materials science, engineering principles and recent advances in dental biomaterials
- Reviews the fundamentals of dental biomaterials and examines advanced materials' applications for tissues regeneration and clinical dentistry
- Written by an international collaborative team of materials scientists, biomedical engineers, oral biologists and dental clinicians in order to provide a balanced perspective on the field

Up to date, he published 50 plus scientific papers in high impact factor journals, and he edited 3 dental books with the Asian publisher. His research interests cover natural materials incorporation in dental biomaterials, oral antimicrobial peptides, dental implant materials, salivary proteins and peptides, salivary diagnostics and regenerative dental materials. He is a reviewer and an editorial member of for highly indexed dental journals. He is also a member of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) and a fellow of the Pierre Fauchard Academy (PFA).
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
