Specialist in Endodontics

Lecturer in Endodontology – Liverpool University Dental Hospital

Obyda is a Specialist in Endodontics and a Lecturer in Endodontology at the University of Liverpool. He qualified with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) from Newcastle University and completed his general foundation training at the Northern Dental Deanery. He worked in general dental practice in North East of England and gained Membership of the Joint Dental Faculty at the Royal College of Surgeons of England in London (MJDF RCS Eng).

He later joined Liverpool University as a Teaching Fellow in Endodontology and an honorary speciality registrar in 2014 where he completed 3 years full-time clinical specialist training in Endodontics. During his clinical training, he was awarded the educational research grant of the European Society of Endodontology for his ongoing research which focuses on accurate assessment of complex endodontic cases and the development of the Endodontic Complexity Assessment Tool (E-CAT). Obyda was awarded a Doctorate degree in Dental Sciences (Endodontics DDSc) from Liverpool University in 2018.

He then completed the collegiate speciality examination and successfully attained Membership in Endodontics (MEndo) from the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh and is now a GDC registered Specialist in Endodontics.  He is currently appointed as a lecturer at the University of Liverpool and an honorary Speciality Doctor by the Royal Liverpool University Hospital trust. He works in several private specialist referral practices in the north west of England.

Obyda has lectured and delivered workshops at the BDSA and British Dental Association national conferences. In addition to treating complex endodontic treatments in practice, he is actively involved in lecturing, teaching and training postgraduate dental students at the dental hospital. Obyda has scientific publications in Endodontics and is a member of both the British Endodontic Society and the European Society of Endodontology.

Obyda performs all his dental treatments under dental microscope and now accepts referrals for consultations and treatment of complex root canal treatment, root canal retreatment and surgical endodontics, including root end surgery, hemi-section and root resorption repair. Given the wide range of restorative dentistry training he received at Liverpool Dental Hospital, he is happy to fully or partly restore the endodontically treated tooth or refer the treatment back for the coronal restoration as requested by the referring colleague.

He continues to enjoy treating patients in a kind, reassuring manner in all aspects of root canal treatments and dentistry.
