‘I believe in a Scandinavian approach: Simple and understated, yet modern and progressive. In balance with nature, you might say.’
Bas began 15 years ago with invisible braces, way before other dentists knew these techniques. ‘The first invisible braces customer was an emerging singer from Amsterdam . He didn’t want to perform while wearing braces. And I didn’t see his braces during his performances...Did his radiant smile help him to break through?’
He is no stranger within the dental world. ‘We have lots of patients for whom it takes over an hour to get to our clinic. Because of the modern techniques we use, braces need to be adjusted only once every 4-8 weeks. My most favourite moment is when a patient of ours writes a positive review online. This definitely is the crown on our work, on the daily efforts of the whole team!’
