Where did you study?

Universitätsmedizin Charité in Berlin

Why did you choose to study dentistry? What did you think of the education you received?

I wanted to find out how dental procedures could be made more pleasant for the patient. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and delving into little details.

Why did you want to work as a dentist here at Tandarts Jordaan?

Because, even before I moved to the Netherlands, I knew that Tandarts Jordaan was one of the most beautiful and modern practices in Amsterdam. 

Do you have an affinity for a particular area within dentistry, and if so, what makes that area so appealing?

Endodontics (root canal) is my favourite area within dentistry, you need to work very exactly and need finger dexterity.

I also like to work on restorations of the front teeth. It’s so nice to see how people suddenly bloom when they are finally satisfied with their smile. 

Do you remember your childhood dentist? What were they like?

The dentist who I went to as a child was a big, scary man. He looked like Mr. Bean but he never smiled and did all his treatments without anaesthetic!

Did you mind going to the dentist?

 I was stressed and scared for days in advance. I thought the dental treatments were awful.

How do you maintain your own teeth, do you really brush twice a day, and do you ever snack throughout the day?

I do snack sometimes but fortunately I’m addicted to flossing, that makes a difference!

When you were little, what did you want to grow up to be?

A dog psychologist. I’m not even sure that is a job but when I was small I had no doubts about it!

What gives you the most satisfaction in your work?

I love the moment when I can let my patients look in the mirror after treatment. The smile of happy people, who feel more beautiful because of my work, that’s priceless.

What do you do to make sure each patient leaves the practice satisfied?

Good communication is very important. The patient always knows – in advance of the treatment – exactly what is going to happen, and there’s a chance to ask questions.

Can you recall the nicest moment of your career so far? One that you know you will always look back on fondly?

I worked in a practice in Berlin, which specialises in two things: root canal procedures and treating patients who have a phobia of the dentist’s. The first big treatment for patients with an extreme phobia often took place under general anaesthetic, and the first check-up appointment – the next day – was always a very special moment for the patients and for me. It was beautiful to see how happy and proud they were that the first big step towards a healthy mouth was behind them and they had gained trust in the dentist. 

What biases against dentists would you like to do away with? 

Often people think that root canal procedures are terribly painful but fortunately in 95% of cases that’s not true. 

What future plans do you have within dentistry?

I’d like to take a course to improve my knowledge around reconstructive dentistry.

Why do you think people should opt for Tandarts Jordaan?

The atmosphere at Tandarts Jordaan is incredibly nice. All the staff are super motivated and enjoy their work. The patients notice that immediately. Tandarts Jordaan also stands for top-quality.

What’s your top tip for helping people maintain their teeth?

Toothpicks work wonders. 😉

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!
