High Point University appoints new dean for upcoming dental school

Muhammad Ali Shazib, DMD, was recently appointed dean of High Point (N.C.) University's new Workman School of Dental Medicine.

Dr. Shazib replaced founding dean Scott De Rossi, DMD, but it is unclear why. 

Dr. Shazib was most recently an assistant professor at the university and has been with the school since January 2022, according to his LinkedIn page.

High Point University broke ground on the dental school in September after receiving accreditation in August. It will be the third dental school in the state and the first among private schools. The school is expected to welcome its first cohort of students in fall 2024.
