Octavian Moldovan DMD

Dental Surgeon

GDC reg no: 111549     05/06/07

Octavian Moldovan has limited his dentistry practice to Endodontics (Root canal treatments) and is currently enrolled in a 5 year MSc Endodontic Study program at the University of Warwick in Coventry, working towards his Master of Science in Endodontics degree. 

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 part 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 and light made possible to enhance his senses for the best visual control inside a tooth. Using a rotary engine with multiple file systems and ultrasonic tools proved to be efficient and precise with shaping and cleaning the root canals. 

He is inclined to be very explicative in communication, patient oriented, calm and empathic with patients. Being confident and reassuring with his treatment procedures, make him a consistently successful ’teeth saviour’ for a number of years, and many patients keep following him wherever he practices, with other colleagues referring their patients for root treatments only.
