ENDOLearning Lecturers

Dr. Sebastian LUPU

Dr. Sebastian Lupu discovered his passion for endodontics during the Faculty of Dentistry, Medical University “Grigore T. Popa”, Iași, Romania, where he became a DMD in 1999. He continued his studies with the Master in Clinical and Surgical Microendodontics Level II, in Turin – Italy (2016, with Prof. Elio Berutti), and then, in 2017, has been appointed as a Certified Trainer for Dentsply Sirona Endodontics in Ballaigues, Switzerland.

Dr. Lupu has been practicing this branch of dentistry for over 20 years, and over the time he has managed to perform thousands of endodontic treatments of varying degrees of difficulty. He introduced the operating microscope in his work technique in 2009, and since then he has been providing his patients with more precision. Due to the properties of this dental equipment (to increase the visual field), over 95% of the root canal treatments had predictable and successful results.

The considerable and ever-increasing number of successful complex endodontic re-treatments have led to the creation of many mentoring requests from colleagues. Thus, in 2017, Dr. Sebastian Lupu founded ENDOLearning project, through which he wants to provide support, demonstrations and tips & tricks in endodontics to those who are passionate about this branch of dentistry.


Dr. Mihnea Cafadaru graduated in 2007 from the “Victor Babeș” University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Timișoara, Romania. Subsequently, he began intensive training in dental implantology and periodontology. In 2008, he completed a one-year specialization in dental implantology, having Professor Emanuel Bratu from Timișoara as his mentor. Since then, Dr. Cafadaru focused on broadening his studies and practice from the best trainers in Europe, such as Inaki Gamborena, Marius Steigmann, Anton Sculean and Mauro Fradeani.

Dr. Mihnea Cafadaru focused especially on clinical periodontology and dental implants, respectively dental microscopy. 

Dr. Cafadaru focused on LIVE OP TRAINING addressed to dentists from Romania and other countries.

He is currently “Xpert Presenter” for Dental XP.com, one of the largest dental platforms worldwide.


Dr. Bogdan ARION

Dr. Bogdan Arion graduated as valedictorian in 2012 at the Faculty of Dental Medicine, U.M.F. “Grigore T. Popa” Iași, Romania, and later, in 2015, has pursued the specialization of Dento-Alveolar Surgery. During his studies, in 2011, he completed the internship at the Oral-Maxillo-Facial Surgery Clinic in the AKH hospital in Vienna. In the last 8 years, he dedicated his practice to the surgical field, trying to continuously evolve, by taking part in a multitude of national and international medical courses and congresses.

Throughout his experience, Dr. Arion focused on broadening his theoretical notions and practice from the best trainers in Europe, such as: Frank Zastrow, Radoslaw Jadach, Howard Gluckman and Ali Tahmaseb.

In 2022 Dr. Arion has graduated from Alma Mater Studiorum Universita di Bologna where he completed the University Master Level 2 – Soft Tissue Management Around Teeth and Implants with Prof. Giovanni Zucchelli.

Dr. Iulian Miron

DMD, General Dentist
”I have performed an endodontic treatment on the teeth, before Doctor Lupu's course. Then, after I finished the course, I reconsidered everything I have done to the respective tooth and I entirely changed the treatment. I am so thankful for everything I learned during the Endo Course - it was enlightening for me and my everyday workflow!”

Dr. Raluca Monoranu

DMD, General Dentist UK

Dr. Alin Tănase

DMD, General Dentist
”I have been to many endodontic courses/workshops – including to courses presented by Dr. Lupu. I took something from each of the lecturers, but in everyday practice I use the most what I learned from Dr. Lupu. Taking into account that I had never worked with a microscope before, and after Dr. Lupu's course I had a microscope in my clinic and it was very easy to use it, I think that what I learnt during this endodontic course helped me a lot. Dr. Lupu spoke about all the important topics, and insisted on them. So, it was a lot of useful information, easy to put into practice, and a friendly atmosphere!”

Dr. Georgiana Prodan

DMD, General Dentist
”The most beautiful cours I have attended: professional people, very warm, open and willing to teach you the secrets of implantology. I highly recommend the courses of Dr. Bogdan Arion and Dr. Mihnea Cafadaru! I will definitely return for new courses on dental surgery and implants!”

Dr. Claudia Neagu

DMD, General Dentist
”Thank you for everything! For me, Dr. Lupu's course was an experience transformed into a very valuable life lesson, applicable in all fields. Congratulations!”

Dr. Hans Vermeulen

Dentist MSc, The Netherlands
”The Intensive Implantology Course held by Dr. Cafadaru and Dr. Arion is a fantastic course. I was a beginner when I attended this 6-day course and I feel much more confident now. They inspired me to take dental surgery as a specialization.”

Dr. Benjamin Keppenne

Dentist MSc, Belgium
”I wanted to learn from Dr. Mihnea Cafadaru and Dr. Bogdan Arion because of their knowledge. They made it very easy to follow. I highly recommend the Intensive Implantology Course for any level of dentist, no matter how old or young. It is a good insight into modern-day techniques”

Dr. Oleg Kavun

Dentist MSc, Czech Republic
”The Intensive Implantology Course is really factual: Dr. Cafadaru and Dr. Arion show us a lot of video-documented cases to support the theoretical part, but the most incredible thing is that if you ask a question with a particular case - they always have a video to show you with the very thing you asked for!”
