Together with his wife who is also a dentist, they founded Staas and Bergmans Zorgvooruwmond in 1990, a praxis for general dentistry, and clinic for esthetic dentistry and implantology in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. In 2012 they founded a second office, Staas and Bergmans Expertisevooruwmond, a partnership clinic consisting of various dental specialists working as a team treating patients needing complex therapy. Dr. Staas has focused his practice and teaching interests on immediate implant placement and collaborates with other clinicians working together in their practices in the Netherlands. He provides instruction to colleagues on immediate replacements, esthetic solutions and the use of NobelActive implants, and is performing research on these procedures and long-term outcomes.
