Dr Norman Gluckman
Registered Specialist in Endodontics (Root Canal Treatment)
Dr Gluckman has amassed over 20 years' experience as a specialist in Endodontics (root canal treatment) using the latest microscopic techniques. Having so many years of experience has allowed him to provide the treatment in a timely manner, thus ensuring having a root canal treatment with him is a more pleasant experience for his patients.
Norman graduated from Witwatersrand University, South Africa in 1969, where he worked as a general dentist. He registered as a specialist in endodontics by the Israeli Ministry of Health in 1979 and has limited his interest in dentistry to endodontics ever since.
In his spare time Norman likes to unwind by playing squash and going to theatre.
Norman says "Most people come to me for root canal treatment dreading the treatment due to the 'bad name' root fillings has out there, but after their treatment with me, they are very happy and pleased, as it is never as bad as they expect it to be".
