Ruben relocated to London in 2009 and in 2010 he gained the Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Endodontics from the University of Barcelona. Since then Ruben has developed an interest in Restorative Dentistry, and has a particular expertise in root canal treatments, complex dental wear cases and smile design.

He was awarded the degree with distinction and he developed a strong understanding of the new methods and principles in Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy) and a comprehensive knowledge of the mouth as a functional and aesthetic unit. Also in 2015 Ruben obtained a second postgraduate qualification, Membership of Faculty of Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (MFDS RCSEd).
Since completing his Postgraduate Degree in 2015 he has been gaining broad experience in many practices around the North East providing Root Canal therapy, complex restorative treatments including veneers and smile makeovers as well as routine dental treatment.
