Richard set up Colchester Dental Specialist Centre in 2008, following 23 years working in general practice.

He now limits his practice to the treatment of root canal problems, after completing his master's degree in Endodontics at the Eastman Dental Institute, at University College London in 2001. He has achieved a place on the GDC Specialist Endodontic register, regularly teaches dentists on courses throughout East Anglia and is a former Senior Executive Officer of the prestigious Langham Endodontic Study Group. He is also a member of both the American Association of Endodontics and British Endodontic Society. Richard has always been interested in taking a multi-disciplinary approach to dentistry, for the restoration of the dentition. This interest, together with his experience and postgraduate training, puts him in a great position to appreciate the complexities involved in the diagnosis, treatment-planning, and case-management, that are frequently associated with patients who require endodontic treatment. Richard is supported by his team at Colchester Dental Specialist Centre, who have worked together for many years to provide a relaxed and friendly environment, so they can deliver great patient care. The practice uses modern, high-quality techniques and equipment, such as a specialist microscope and CBCT 2D radiography, to help find all the tiny canals in the tooth root during treatment and achieve a great outcome.
