When it comes to dental implants, Michel is at the top of his game. He has a BSc in Biochemistry (Rutgers University, New Jersey) and went on to complete a degree in dentistry at the Vrije University of Amsterdam, graduating in 1985. Michel continued his postgraduate education at the renowned academic centres UCLA California and the University of Berne in Switzerland. He also worked an apprenticeship alongside Dr G de Lange, a ground-breaking researcher of cell biology. Throughout his education Michel’s special interest has always been in the field of oral bone and oral tissue. This has formed a strong foundation upon which he built a successful career in the field of dental implantology. With nearly 30 years experience, Michel has successfully completed over 3,000 implant procedures and has gained an international reputation for excellence in dental implantology. Michel donates a portion of his fee to the charity Operation Smile which aims to improve the quality of life for young people in some of the poorest areas of the world.
