Dirk is not your typical dentist. He had a quiet life in Antwerp, but decided to expand his vision so he moved to Barcelona in 2002. In 2006, he went to live in Asturias, in the north of Spain. He has not stopped flying on a regular basis to Belgium to keep contact with his kids, family, and friends, and he is still affiliated with two dental clinics in Antwerp. Dirk is also a member of the apoQlar Medical Advisory Board, who are developing surgical and dental applications for the Microsoft Hololens.
In between his work and the travelling, he still has found some time to give some lectures all over Europe (Nice, Valencia, Dublin, Bilbao). He has cases published in text books and on the site of TRI Dental Implants in Switzerland.
