Octavian graduated from The University of Dental Medicine in Bucharest in 2001. After successfully running his own private practice in his hometown he relocated to England in 2007 where he started working as a general dental practitioner. His passion was always the restorative side of dentistry but soon he developed a very keen interest in root canal treatment procedures and the restoration of broken down teeth.
Endodontics soon became Octavian’s passion, and he started working with a Dental Operating Microscope in 2012. Working under magnification made it possible to enhance his senses for the best visual control whilst carrying out procedures. He has excellent communication skills, is very patient oriented, calm and empathic towards his patients. Being confident and reassuring with his treatment procedures, has made him a consistently successful and popular Endodontist for a number of years.
