1984-1990: Dentistry at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, the Netherlands; resulting in a doctorate degree in 1989 and a dentist diploma (DDS) in 1990.

1990-1994: Specialty training in orthodontics at the University of Connecticut (U.S.A); resulting in a Certificate in Orthodontics and in June of 1993 a Master of Dental Science degree (thesis: The relation of severity of facial disharmony, self concept, psychological distress, and gender to patient satisfaction with facial appearance).

In June of 1993 I passed Phase II of the exam for the American Board of Orthodontics. Certification through the American Board of Orthodontics is a process in 3 parts: Phase I is obtained at the completion of a specialty training at an accredited program in the U.S.A. Phase II is a theoretical test on a wide scale of general dentistry and orthodontic subjects. Phase III is an exam in which the clinical skills of the orthodontist are tested. For this exam I presented 10 patients treated by me, classified into different categories and representing the clinical skills of the orthodontist in treating patients with different abnormalities in face and denture, needing orthodontic treatment.
In februari of 2000 I passed Phase III and am therefore certified by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO). Currently the certification process is slightly different; please consult the ABO website for more information.

In The Netherlands the orthodontic specialty training consists of a four year program. To be registered as a specialist the obtained training needs to meet certain requirements. As I was trained at a university outside the European Union different criteria apply. However for both Dutch and foreign trained orthodontists the same exam has to be taken to be formally registered as an orthodontist. I passed this exam in September of 1994. Formally my American training was completed after 3 years. But to meet the Dutch criteria I spend an extra year as a teaching fellow at the University of Connecticut. In this year I continued the treatment of my own patients and increased my clinical experience. Also I worked on the publication of my research and a clinical article. I spend a lot of time on rewriting the book Modern Edgewise Mechanics and the Segmented Arch Technique by my teacher dr. Charles J. Burstone.

In February of 1995 I started my practice in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands. At that time I also part time taught biomechanics at the orthodontic program at the ACTA University in Amsterdam. In 1996 I started a PhD research in my own practice about the correction of a deep bite by intrusions of the incisors (prospective clinical trial). This research was conducted under the guidance of dr. Charles J. Burstone and prof.dr. Birte Prahl-Andersen of ACTA in Amsterdam. In June of 2006 I completed this research by defending my thesis and was granted a PhD.

In September of 2009 I passed the National Dental Specialty Exam in orthodontics. This exam is required to practice orthodontics in Canada.
