"I am honored and thrilled to be returning to BCD," Glickman said prior to his arrival. "I am excited that I will again be working with many of the faculty and staff that I had the pleasure of
working with when I was first here. It is a great feeling to be 'coming home.'"
Glickman's primary goal will be to continue the tradition of excellence in endodontic education and scholarship, both at the predoctoral as well as the graduate level. "With its
re-establishment, it is critical that the Department of Endodontics works in concert with the school at all levels: administration, faculty, staff and students," he said.

the University of Florida in 1979, a master's degree and certificate in endodontics from Northwestern University in 1984, a master's degree in business administration from Southern Methodist University
in 1988 and a law degree from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law in 1994.

Glickman is a member of the Test Construction Committee of the Joint Commission of National Dental Examiners and a member of the Endodontic Review Committee and consultant for the ADA Joint
Commission on Dental Accreditation. A fellow of both the American College of Dentists and the International College of Dentists, his research interests are in the areas of root canal instrumentation and
obturation of root canal systems.

Glickman serves as section editor of endodontics for Quintessence International. He also has contributed to major texts in endodontics.
