A message from Nicolai

My name is Nicolai Orsteen and I am a registered specialist in endodontics in both the UK and my home country of Norway. I have worked as a specialist for more than 10 years, and my practice is solely limited to root canal treatments. In my opinion, you need to practice tirelessly to be an expert in your field, and I have successfully completed more than 10,000 root canal treatments.

Amongst other places, I have worked in a specialist endodontic practice in Harley Street. I eventually set up the Root Canal Dental Referral Centre to offer patients in and around Richmond high quality specialist root canal treatment for a reasonable fee.
