Welcome to Dé Tandenkliniek
According to Dé Tandenkliniek having bad teeth does not exist. That’s why we are sure that Dé Tandenkliniek can offer a solution for every ‘problem’. From the desire to have straight, white teeth, to fixing a cavity or even a complete dental reconstruction. Annemie Grobbink and her team are passionate, dedicated professionals, who focus on personal attention and the patient’s satisfaction. We procure our patients to have a long-lasting, bright smile and healthy teeth.
Our View, our approach
A Holistic view
At Dé Tandenkliniek we do not do quick-fixes. We work from a holistic approach. The word Holism is based on the Greek word ‘Holon’, which means ‘Whole’. Holism considers the idea that everything is interrelated. Dé Tandenkliniek strongly believes in this way of thinking: we look at the teeth as an integral part of the face.
Many dental problems and imperfections (aesthetical or not) are caused by the mutual alignment of the jaws and/or the functioning of the masseter (chewing) muscle. By analysing the aesthetics and the functioning of jaws and teeth, and tracing back possible problems, we are able to design appropriate treatment leading to long-lasting and natural results.
After the treatment, regular maintenance is the only thing needed. No more unpleasant surprises, a beautiful smile and healthy teeth. Everyone deserves that!
What we do
Regular check-up and maintenance
Porcelain facings or white filling material
Orthodontics for adults
Replacing dark fillings
Aesthetic gum correction
“Our motto? Smile out loud!”
Our philosophy is that beautiful teeth are the logical result of good teeth. From our Holistic view we see good teeth as a guarantee for a life without dental worries. Therefore, our first concern is not to make a ‘pretty picture’ but to bring teeth to optimal health; that will automatically result in beautiful teeth. Position, shape and colour of your teeth give us tremendous insight. We study the aesthetics of mouth and teeth by taking portrait and close-up photos. These photos often tell us what ‘went wrong’. Once we have established that, we can apply the right treatment as well as restoration (if necessary) that is durable.
Always something going on with your teeth?!”
During the first consult we will extensively analyse how your teeth are functioning. How well the masticatory apparatus is functioning is an important factor in a wide variety of complaints. Because most people are so used to how their teeth feels and function, they are unaware of the fact that their teeth may not be functioning correctly. A dysfunctional masticatory apparatus can be caused by either unbalanced pressure on the teeth or an overcharge of the lower jaw on the upper jaw. By carefully examining the cause we are able to determine proper treatment and restore damage.
“Healthy teeth are important and within reach for everyone.”
Pain will generally manifest itself when the cause of that pain is in an advanced state. We work hard to be ahead of that situation. A good reason to have your teeth and gums checked regularly. Generally, we advise to have this done once or twice a year.
Obviously, we will look for cavities but additionally we will check your gums and the overall functioning and stability of your teeth.
“To be able to grow old with your own teeth it’s imperative to keep them healthy from a young age"
Many people have infected gums without even being aware of it. Gums get infected because of a thin layer of dental tartar forming on the teeth. Chronic gum infections may, over time, lead to erosion of jawbones. This process often happens over a longer period of time without noticeable complaints. Eventually it may lead to teeth getting loose and ultimately loss of teeth.
During hygienic dental treatment we will remove all dental tartar and we will provide instructions on how to keep your teeth clean yourself with a minimum of effort. The result? Healthy gums and great looking teeth.
A bright smile”
Due to a change in European law the only effective way to whiten your teeth is ‘home bleaching’. For this procedure we will provide you with a see-through tray (like a mouthguard) and whitening gel which enables you to whiten your teeth at home yourself. This process generally takes a couple of days and will take from 30 to 60 minutes per day. Added benefit is that you can decide when you are happy with the result and that you will be able to use the tray again whenever you feel you need to touch up the shade of your teeth.
Dé Tandenkliniek offers ‘home bleaching’ for €295,-
“Maximum result with minimal treatment”
Discoloured, broken, worn down or crooked teeth: often they can be fixed easily with veneers. Facings are thin porcelain or composite (white filling material) facades placed over original teeth. We prefer to apply veneers as non-invasive as possible. What we mean by that is that we will always try to not clip of anything of the original tooth or teeth. Choice of material of the veneers depends on personal wishes and what is possible. Both materials come with pros and cons. Our experienced team will be happy to advise in order to come to an informed decision in consultation with you.
“Straight teeth for everyone”
Unjustly people often think that dental braces are exclusively for children who need dental adjustment. In fact, orthodontic treatment is not seldomly easier as well as faster for adults. Sometimes braces are exactly what is required to durably enhance teeth. Orthodontics are merely a small but intricate part of a broader treatment for realigning teeth. Generally treatments will take from 6 up to 9 months and rarely more than a year.
We use detachable, see- through braces by Invisalign as well as fixed in place braces with transparent brackets.
“Out with those heavy metals!”
Dark metal fillings (amalgam) are predominantly consisting of heavy metals. It is a liquid mercury and metal alloy mixture (silver, tin and copper).
Several studies have determined that amalgam fillings actually release mercury vapour. Additionally, amalgam does not stick to teeth which means that the filling is essentially logged in the cavity unattached. Under pressure or micro-movement, the filling can cause cracks which may ultimately chip off pieces of a tooth. In our opinion these alone are reasons to replace amalgam fillings with composite or porcelain. In addition to that, composite and porcelain are materials that have a natural colour which produces far more aesthetic results as opposed to amalgam.
Symmetry and harmony of white teeth and pink gums are the definition of Beautiful teeth.
No matter how white your teeth are; if there is a problem with your gums your teeth will never look their best. By problem we mean too much gum or not enough gum around the teeth.
Having too much gum, also known as having a ‘gummy smile’ means too much gum is exposed when a person smile.
When someone doesn’t have enough gum, it means that too much of “the neck” of the teeth is exposed.
Both conditions can be corrected, usually with minor surgery or orthodontic treatment.
“The ultimate solution for missing teeth or slackening dentures”
Dental implants are artificial titanium or zirkoniumoxide roots that can be applied in order to replace missing teeth or fixate slackening dentures.
To replace a missing tooth, a crown or bridge will be attached to an implant. When an implant is placed correctly and has a great looking crown it is nearly impossible to differentiate from natural teeth.
Implantology can also be used to give dentures more stability. Depending on specific circumstances, per jaw between 2 and 6 dental implants will be placed. With the use of a special system, dentures can then be locked onto the implants providing great stability which makes eating and chewing much more comfortable so you can truly rely on your teeth.
“To be able to grow old with your own teeth it’s imperative to keep them healthy from a young age”
Many people have infected gums without even being aware of it. Gums get infected because of a thin layer of dental tartar on teeth. Chronic gum infections can, over time, lead to erosion of jawbones. This process often happens over a longer period of time without noticeable complaints. Eventually it can lead to teeth getting loose and ultimately loss of teeth. Gum infection that leads to jaw erosion is called periodontitis.
Treatment of periodontitis starts with what is called ‘initial periodontal treatment’. Jaw erosion is measured at 6 locations per tooth and all teeth will be cleaned extensively. After that every individual will receive personalised recommendations on how to keep everything clean.
After several weeks of self-cleaning we will then evaluate the results and will be able to determine if further treatment is or isn’t necessary.
We enjoy sharing our passion and knowledge on high-end, affordable and aesthetic dentistry. With both our clients and colleagues. For instance, we produced an item about facings on the RTL4 TV show ’Medical Travel’. In an educational film we shared with colleagues our experience and advice on a new revolutionary product to make improved and more beautiful composite facings and fillings. Spring 2017, 2018 and 2019, Annemie Grobbink was the invited dentist on the ‘Hotter Than My Daughter’ TV show; she discussed the makeovers of various candidates with show hosts Gordon, Patty Brard and Bridget Maasland. We also edited some articles about case reports and extensive treatments
We are happy to share our knowledge with colleagues through lectures and hands-on training sessions. The main subjects are dental wear, orthodontics and aesthetic recovery. Each treatment plan and every lecture consist of the following components: first, the aesthetic analysis, followed by a thorough diagnosis. Only based on a clear diagnosis an evidence-based treatment plan can be drawn up. When developing the treatment plan, the different options must be considered carefully. The aim is to always procure minimal invasion.
Who we are
Restoration Dentist & Owner
Youssra El Bouakili
“I graduated in 1999 at the University of Amsterdam. Right from my professional start I wanted to understand why some dentures are beautiful and how it is possible that other people’s teeth constantly cause trouble. Why do teeth break down? Why do some people pay the dentist’s chair a painful visit every three months? What about people who dislike the aesthetics of their teeth, but always receive their dentist’s denial?”
Searching for an answer to her questions, from 2002 to 2005 Annemie worked at the "kroon-en brugwerk" clinic (clinic for crown and bridge-work) at the department of oral functionality of the Faculty of Dentistry in Amsterdam and later in various dental practices. From 2003 she attended intensive courses on orthodontics.
Her strength turned out to lie in the combination of knowledge on functional theory, dental crowns and bridges and orthodontics. By combining these disciplines, she is able to achieve a maximum aesthetic and functional result with minimal intervention. This minimally invasive dentistry, with minimal or no removal of healthy teeth or gums, ensures a beautiful and especially durable result. All healthy parts are left intact and only where necessary the position, colour and/or shape of the teeth is adjusted. An innovative and particularly personal way of working.
Her interest and specialization made Annemie open her own practice in Amsterdam in 2013, where she still shares her energy, passion and expertise, both working at her own practice and giving lectures, workshops or through publications.

“If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.”
As a dentist’s daughter, Pieke’s interest in dentistry arose early on. She had an eye for detail and a passion for aesthetics. Having her mother as an example, she started her dental studies in 2009.
Right from the start, Pieke had a strong interest in restoring aesthetics in a natural way. This led her to study restorative dentistry. As a restorative dentist, she approaches the mouth from the point of view that when the teeth function properly, comfort and great aesthetics will follow.
Since her graduation, Pieke puts this philosophy into practice with great passion.
Since she works at Dé Tandenkliniek, she has specialized in becoming a recognized Restorative Dentist.
She does this under the guidance of Annemie Grobbink and by following postgraduate courses and curricula.

"A smiling patient makes my day!"
Claudine grew up in Switzerland and graduated in Bern in 1993. In her native country, she worked at periodontology practices. She has been living in the Netherlands since 2001 and was among others affiliated with ACTA and the Clinic for Periodontology. After her first child was born, she started working as an independent dental hygienist.
Since the start of 2020, Claudine has also committed herself to a working relationship with Dé Tandenkliniek of which she loves the highly diverse clientele. For patients who haven’t been to a dentist or dental hygienist for a longer period especially, Claudine can make a huge difference. When, after her treatment, patients, leave the practice with a radiant smile on their faces Claudine’s day is made!
“Mijn doel is dat elke patiënt tevreden is over de manier van omgang en de behandeling!”
Op de middelbare school was het al duidelijk voor mij waar mijn toekomst zou liggen. Ik startte daarom als tandartsassistente bij een tandartspraktijk in Tiel, mijn toenmalige woonplaats. Mijn verwachtingen werden overtroffen omdat ik niet alleen het werk vakinhoudelijk erg leuk vond, maar juist ook het omgaan met mensen van verschillende leeftijden en met verschillende zorgvragen. Van kinderen tot en met bejaarden. Van controles tot en met complexe ingrepen. Speciaal vind ik nog altijd het geven van extra aandacht aan patiënten die toch een vorm van angst hebben. Mijn doel is dat elke patiënt tevreden is over de manier van omgaan en de behandeling. Zo werken we samen aan het onderhouden en (nog) mooier maken van hun gebit.
Na bij diverse (soorten) praktijken gewerkt te hebben werk ik bij De Tandenkliniek, waar ik alle ruimte krijg om mijn kennis en passie voor het vak verder uit te breiden. Langzamerhand bouw ik mijn eigen patiëntenkring op bij mijn werkzaamheden als preventieassistente. Daarnaast assisteer ik, bij behandelingen aan de stoel, onze tandartsen Annemie Grobbink en Pieke Wagenmakers. Ik hoop u snel een keer te mogen ontvangen!

"Elena, born and raised in the Ukraine, graduated as a dentist in 2011 at Donetsk National Medical University."
In 2018, she followed her boyfriend who already lived and worked in Amsterdam. Through a practice’s owner Annemie Grobbink colleague from Moscow, she came in contact with Dé Tandenkliniek.
She loves the Netherlands and its people very much and would love to continue to live and work here. To become a dentist in the Netherlands, she must first obtain her BIG-registration. Until then, she enjoys working very much and with great pleasure as an assistant to the dentists. She finds the restorative dentistry specialty interesting and she sees that all three dentists, practice their profession with passion. Also, because they attend many courses and congresses to stay up to date. She enjoys working in a small, closely, cosy team and, thanks to her extensive experience, can also regularly perform certain dental procedures independently.
"A healthy mouth is at the base of a healthy body."
Although I do not come from a family with a medical background, I knew from an early age that I wanted to work in a dental practice in the future. A beautiful smile is your best visit card! And to help people with this, makes of our profession, a very nice one.
In 2018 I graduate as a dental hygienist at the Hogeschool Utrecht. During my internship in the professional field I have studied orthodontics and care for the disabled and anxiety counselling. I think it's important to make people aware that a healthy mouth is basic for a healthy body. Symptoms of gum disease often seem harmless, but in addition to causing jawbone problems, there are also various other relationships with the body such as Alzheimer's, an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. My goal is to work together on a healthy mouth and thereby a healthy body.
I really enjoy working at Dé Tandenkliniek because we work together as a close team. By combining the various branches of dental care, we can design a treatment plan so that we can achieve optimum results. Dentistry is really a team sport! Not only between colleagues, but also in collaboration with you as a patient. That makes my job the best challenge there is!
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success.”
Milou grew up in Limburg and comes from a large family full of doctors. Her passion for dentistry stems from a preference for combining art and medicine. With a mother as an artist and a father as a doctor, she was stimulated from an early age. How can we protect what nature has made and where necessary restore it by minimally invasive intervention?
As a dentist she uses her creativity, knowledge and perfectionism to support her patients in obtaining or maintaining beautiful and healthy teeth. The mouth is so much more than a bunch of teeth. It is one of the most fascinating organs in the body that we eat, talk, laugh and kiss with. By working at Dé Tandenkliniek she can further expand her passion for the profession. She does this under the supervision of Annemie Grobbink and by following postgraduate courses.

“I love being a Dentist Assistant!”
Suki was born in Curaçao but has been living in the Netherlands for 30 years. Because taking care of your teeth is something, she was brought up with she has always deemed healthy-looking teeth of the utmost importance. What’s more, it will be the first thing she looks at when she speaks to somebody. From the very moment, Suki came to live in the Netherlands, it was her dream to become a dentist or dentist assistant.
Currently, she is working hard on making that dream come true. Two years ago, Suki switched from being an administrative assistant to a dentist assistant. Although she took this decision at a relatively high age for a career switch, she has not regretted it for even a second.
Suki ended up working at Dé Tandenkliniek through a colleague. She loves being a dentist assistant!
“Proud to be a member of a professional and fun team!”
Anita was born in Hungary and has been living in Amsterdam since 2012. It was love at first sight. In the beginning, she worked for several hotels in Amsterdam while at the same time trying to figure out what line of work would suit her best. She found that it is important for her to have a job that comes with variety as well as the chance to help people and be part of a team. Being a dental assistant is a job that fits those criteria perfectly; an exciting challenge in which quality and punctuality are of equal importance.
However, before starting her education, she first committed herself to learn Dutch for 2 years. Following that, in late 2018 she started her education as a Dental assistant.
Anita is overjoyed that she was given the opportunity to work as well as advance her development at Dé Tandenkliniek alongside finishing her education. She is proud to be part of a professional and fun team!
"It's important to me to strife for a great result together with you!"
My love for his profession started at a very young age. When I was still a little girl, I spent a lot of time in my father’s practice. That lead me to dive into the world of Dentistry myself. I finished my dental care study in Amsterdam. After this, I enjoyed working at several practices around the country as well as in Amsterdam.
Being a professional, I find it of great importance to keep educating myself. In light of that, I am currently doing a periodontics study and hoping to finish that imminently. It is important to me to strife for a great result together with you, the patient. Therefore, I always try to involve you and to provide you with as much information as I possibly can.
