Edinburgh Endodontist is the brainchild of Dr Navid Saberi.
Since 2006, Navid has had a vision to establish a specialist endodontic referral practice in Edinburgh to save teeth that otherwise would have been extracted.
This vision led to the establishment of Navid Saberi Endodontics in 2013, which was a unique UK-wide cooperating endodontic referral service with over 100 collaborating referral practices.
In late 2018, Navid started laying the foundation for the first and only endodontic mono-specialist referral clinic in Edinburgh and subsequently opened the practice in early 2019.
Following the first Covid-19 lockdown, Edinburgh Endodontist was one of the first clinics to provide the much-needed dental service to the community who required specialist root canal in Edinburgh by reopening the practice in late spring 2020 after working tirelessly with like-minded colleagues over the lockdown to establish a safe and effective operating procedure. As a result, many avoided extractions and managed to save their teeth by having specialist root canal treatment in Edinburgh.
Since 2022, Edinburgh Endodontist has expanded its service provision and now offers endodontic and root canal procedures from Edinburgh Central and Edinburgh South clinics.
Edinburgh Endodontist remains the first and still the only mono-specialist endodontic referral practice in Edinburgh.
