Often if teeth are in a bad position it can negatively affected the outcome of treatment. This motivated Dr Z to study orthodontics and he undertook the highly regarded POS, 2-year orthodontic training program. Michel successfully completed this course and was awarded an ICCDE Fellowship in orthodontics.
