He also obtained his membership diploma with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in the UK through an independent examination process conducted in New Zealand. Dr Vas continues his education and training through a variety of orthodontic courses and seminars. In addition, he lectures to specialist dental groups throughout the world and teaches hands-on courses. He is a member of the Australian Dental Association. In his free time, Dr Vas enjoys bicycling, travelling, healthy eating, and celebrating special occasions with his large, extended family.
