Baran Arisoy

You studied dentistry and worked as a dental assistant. Why did you choose to go into dentistry and what makes the work so satisfying? 

Working in dentistry suits me for a variety of reasons. In addition to solving painful or damaging dental issues for someone you can often make them a lot happier by freshening up the appearance of their teeth too. These possibilities, the manual dexterity and quick thinking needed, all make it a very fitting profession for me. What’s more, you get a lot of practical experience and learn a lot from each other. I think it would be a crying shame not to grab that opportunity now that I have a lot of time alongside my studies.

Are there some treatments you find particularly enjoyable to assist with? Why is that the case?

I like the technical treatments best. I mean things like root canal treatments, crowns and implants. By increasingly assisting on these aesthetic and restorative processes I’ve also started valuing that part of dentistry more.

Can you remember your earliest dentist? What kind of person was that?

My first dentist is still my dentist today. I always enjoy visiting him and we always have a nice chat while I’m in the dentist’s chair.

Did you always enjoy going to the dentist?

Yes, because I always felt, still feel, comfortable in the chair – and sometimes I can even take a powernap.

Have you ever had cavities yourself?

In the dim and distant past I used to enjoy Haribo’s and a soda – that wasn’t so great for my teeth…

What did you want to be when you were a child?

I always wanted to be a surgeon. I find spatial awareness and anatomy really interesting and noticed that those interests suit me. I’ve (almost) left that ambition behind me though, now the focus is very much on a healthy smile!

Why did you decide to apply to Tandarts Jordaan? And what’s it like to work here?

I heard from a good friend, a fellow student, that Tandarts Jordaan was looking for people. I understood that it was a nice team and came to shadow for a day. Immediately, there was a good click, and I was very happy that I could start here. Since then I’ve built a lot of valuable experience and met lovely colleagues. So, I’m very content with my choice.

When you’re at parties, what do you tell people you do for work?

That I look at sets of 28 teeth for 8 hours straight. 

What’s the strangest question you’ve ever had about working at a dentist’s?

I ran into a friend on the terrace of a bar and he asked me if I’d take a look at his teeth right there. 

Why do you think prospective patients should choose Tandarts Jordaan?

Excellent dentists work here, each with their own specialism, which means all dental care can take place under one roof. It is great because it means people hardly ever need to be referred somewhere else and can be helped much faster.

Very knowledgeable dentist in a beautiful practice. They work with the latest equipment, you will always be helped quickly and friendly. It is clear to see that there is a good atmosphere between the different employees.

Marije Petersen

Truly a fantastic practice. Been a patient here for years. Normally I always finish the check-ups very quickly, but today during lunch at work I bit a tooth in half. Called Tandartsjordaan, and was able to go straight after work tonight. Treatment was painless and quick. They managed to save my tooth, which had really broken down. Thank you Tandartsjordaan!

Paul vI

Very nice and well served. Nice practice with friendly and above all knowledgeable employees. Fortunately I switched!

Floris Floris

More than satisfied !! I have been coming here for a few years now and am extremely satisfied. Pleasant practice with the most advanced equipment! A crown placed within 1 day! Awesome

Jose Bakker

I was able to go to work in the short term. My front tooth has been repaired very professionally. The dentist and assistant were very involved and the result is fantastic. Thanks again.

Nico Reen

Great dentist. It's not only spring in the eyes of the dental assistant.

Frank Schippers

Top dental practice. Recommended! I am very satisfied! Great team, from the receptionists to the dental hygienists, the assistants and the highly skilled dentists with excellent service with the patient at the center. They think along with you, put you at ease, are also great with children and it is a practice where everything is under one roof. Fast and painless. I am very happy that I came here 4 years ago. I dare to smile again and many of my acquaintances and friends have also enjoyed going to this dental practice for years. Tandartspraktijk Jordaan also has super service, even on Sundays and evenings until 10 pm! to be open! They are exactly the average in North Holland in terms of prices. (Have requested multiple quotes). Not cheap, but logical! Most prices are determined by the government, so no discussion. If you are going for quality, durability and service, then you have come to the right place at Tandarts Jordaan.

Ed Veldem

Fortunately, after an accident, I was immediately able to visit my own dentist on a Sunday. I have never had such a fine dentist before and can recommend everyone to go here. They are incredibly knowledgeable, but also sweet, especially if you are afraid of the dentist like me. They take their time and reassure you. So hereby a big Thank you!

Carlijn Pranger

An extremely professional dental practice, unlike anything I have encountered before in Amsterdam and The Hague. Very knowledgeable dentists, who clearly explain exactly what they perform during a treatment and they know how to put patients at ease.

Rik Hoenselaar

Wat een fantastische praktijk! Het was noodzakelijk drie kronen te plaatsen, boven middenvoor. Echter, als de bestaande kroon als uitgangspunt gebruikt zou worden, zou het rijtje niet het mooist mogelijke resultaat geven. De oude kroon is daarom door tandarts Bakker kosteloos vervangen. Dit stijgt mi ver uit boven klantvriendelijkheid of betrokkenheid en heeft ook te maken met passie voor het vak. De behandeling was geruststellend, duidelijk, plezierig en professioneel. De vier kronen werden voor het afbakken door de tandtechnicus aangepast aan mijn wensen, weer zonder extra kosten. Het resultaat is een plaatje. Allen die hieraan bijdroegen: dank jullie wel!
