The culture we are aiming for:

Tandartspraktijk René is unique in the way it addresses dental problems. It is a friendly place where patients are treated in a professional, caring and ethical manner. The employees do their best to do excellent work on each patient that results in improved oral health as well as improved overall health. From the moment the patient enters the practice to the moment he leaves and in every interaction with us he is handled with respect, friendliness and helpfulness.

Our team consists of dentists, hygienists, assistants and administrative helpers who are all here to service you swiftly and in a friendly manner. We are a multicultural team, of course everyone speaks Dutch but we also speak English, Russian, German,  Turkish, Roumanian, Hebrew, French and a few other interesting languages. All our dentists and hygienists are registered officially in The Netherlands.
