      Default Netherlands - Recommended dentists

      Here is a list of website and dentist reviews for anyone looking for a caring dentist in the Netherlands:

      DrDaniel in The Hague (Den Haag) who has answered questions on DFC for some time:
      His website is:

      His facebook link is here:
      He also has 5 star Google Reviews if you do a Google Review Search.

      Respected Dutch Dentist-Patient website including a search function for dentists taking on new patients (Zoek een tandarts) and a dental phobia discussion forum (Openbaar forum - Angst voor de tandarts) - which includes a stickied thread (Instellingen voor angstbehandelingen) where there is a list of dentists/hospital departments offering 'Angsttandarts' (nervous patient) services. For most of them you need a referral from your Huisarts (GP) or tandarts (dentist).

      Anxious/phobic children or those with severe dental problems can best be helped by a specially-trained 'Kindertandarts' (pediatric dentist) who have received extra training and accreditation. Nederlandse Vereniging voor Kindertandheelkunde (Dutch Pediatric Dentistry Association) on this link:
      Peter Lansen in the Hague comes particularly highly recommended by Expats ;

      As does Care Dental 070-3907206, Laan van Waalhaven 484
      2497 GR Den Haag
      Den Haag Husband and wife team, the lady is an accredited pediatric dentist. Both highly praised as good with nervous patients several times in 'Ypenburg Nu' an 'Ask your neighbour-type thread'. Also recommended by Expats.

      Historically many posters on have recommended two establishments in Holland where treatment is routinely provided under i/v sedation or even general anaesthesia. The moderators on the site whilst acknowledging that most posters have positive experiences counsel that this is not a long-term solution to dental phobia and also that not everyone will be pleased with the results. These establishments are:
      and (including patients with special needs).

      Expat Website Expatica Article on Dental Care Dutch-style which discusses the insurance position among other things:

      The following are dentists who have been recommended by English-speaking posters on 'Expatica/other sources' as being up to date and providing a 'comfortable = anaethetised' experience.
      In case you need to request it, the word for anaesthetic is 'Verdoving'
      Some also have sections on their websites addressing patient anxiety and could therefore be suitable for those who consider themselves to be phobic or extremely anxious.


      Nathaly at De Gezonde Lach De Clerqstraat 24, Amsterdam. Tel 0203315119.
      Expatica Post 2008: 'She is really lovely, and she may still be taking new patients. You'd have to call and ask.
      She does teeth whitening, but not sure about other cosmetic procedures.
      She fit both of us in really fast, and within 3 weeks all of my (fairly extensive) work was done. I was a big wimp about it, but she took her time, explained everything (in great English), and took it easy on me.
      Good luck! I'm so happy that I got everything done, it was about 8 years since I had had my teeth checked!'

      Delft Specialise in anxious patients and rarely for NL offer nitrous oxide conscious sedation (lachgas). Expatica poster:'I have had only good experiences here'

      The Hague
      Tandarts GGR Leo, Anna Paulownastraat 113, Den Haag
      2518 BD Tel +31 70 3644645
      Expatica poster: 'I'll join the recommendation re Dr. Leo.
      The prices are high but the level is outstanding. Examples:
      He has a panoramic x-ray machine in house.
      Most 1-tooth-crowns are done in ONE sitting!
      On one occasion I needed his help out of office-hours so he came specially for me to his clinic.'

      To begin with, my clinic is 24h 7 days a week available. Secondly and more important, I hope the administrators remove this commercial from the forum.

      I would like to add that I have personally meet and had a nice chat with Dr Daniels last year in Cologne where we both attended the IDS which is the world's largest dental trade show. I can attest that he is sincerely interested in seeing anxious patients and treating them with respect. I think we should also give him credit for spending many hours like I do on the site for no compensation or advertisement at all.
