Having founded our practice in 2008, Richard now focuses on endodontics – the treatment of root canal problems.

Richard set up Colchester Dental Specialist Centre after 23 years in general dental practice. Having gained an MSc in Endodontics at the Eastman Dental Institute at University College London, he now focuses on the treatment of root canal problems. He is skilled at diagnosing, planning treatments for, and managing endodontic cases.

He has achieved a place on the GDC Specialist Endodontic register and regularly teaches on dentistry courses across East Anglia. He is a former senior executive officer of the prestigious Langham Endodontic Study Group, and is a Member of both the American Association of Endodontists and British Endodontic Society.

Richard’s interest, skills and experience in endodontics mean that we have invested in the latest techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. We have a specialist microscope for identifying the many tiny canals in the tooth root; this is used during treatments, enabling us to increase our chances of a successful outcome for each patient.
