- Diagnosis of Endodontic emergencies
- Treatment strategies for Endodontic emergencies
- How to effectively achieve anaesthesia
- Use of intra canal medications and analgesics to treat Endodontic pain

In 2005, he completed his fellowship for the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons and began the specialist training course at King's College, London. His groundbreaking research at King's entitled 'Micro-computed tomography of tooth tissue changes following root canal treatment and post space preparation' was published in the International Endodontic Journal during his final year. This research enabled him to lecture in the United States of America and the United Kingdom.

The roles he enjoys most about his job are helping patients and educating other dental practitioners. Outside of the surgery, Omar has an interest in music and is involved in fitness training. He is also a keen follower of soccer and rugby, especially when the All Blacks are doing well.
