About our practice

Our practice was opened in February 2020.  It was designed and built from scratch with the utmost care and follows all the latest guidelines. The most demanding building and hygiene standards, as well as a well thought-out treatment concept, are among the best qualities of our practice. We strive for patient satisfaction and we want you to feel comfortable with us.

Team

Our team includes dentist Emina Begovic and assistant Kimberley de Niet.

Kimberley and Emina have known each other and worked together for nearly nine years. Whilst working together they realized that they share the same patient-oriented vision in a setting of the highest professional skill. Together, they form a great team with excellent dynamics and understanding, something that is immediately recognized by their patients.

I studied dentistry at the Medical University in Vienna, Austria, where I was promoted as Dr. Med. Dent in 2008. After completing my studies I worked at the University clinic until I moved to The Hague with my husband.

I studied dentistry at the Medical University in Vienna, Austria, where I was promoted as Dr. Med. Dent in 2008. After completing my studies I worked at the University clinic until I moved to The Hague with my husband. As a proud mother of two young daughters I always try to find good balance between work and family. It is also true to say that my job is my passion and a hobby too, which comes from my constant hunger for knowledge and new insights. During my studies in Vienna, under the supervision of my dear professors, I discovered my interest and abilities in periodontology.

I treated patients as a general dentist in several dental practices in the region of Randstad since 2010. In 2016 I decided to further pursue my interest in periodontology and I enrolled in the Master’s programme at the University of Dresden in Germany. Two years later in 2018 I was awarded a Master’s degree in periodontology.

What interests me most in the field of periodontology is the evidence-based, scientific approach and support for every decision in therapy. It is very common to neglect the fact that there is a clear correlation between periodontitis and the patient’s overall health. “Mouth is a mirror of health”. This is the reason I find it particularly important to do a thorough examination of the patient’s overall health condition during the first appointment, in order to be able to establish a correct diagnosis and propose and discuss an appropriate treatment plan that benefits my patients’ oral health, but may also benefit overall well being.

The mouth is a part of our body and consists of teeth, muscles, jawbones, nerves and supporting tissue. All this has to be treated together. Inspired by different courses and literature and by my experience, I have expanded on the concept of Complete dentistry, and in order to further enrich my knowledge in this field, last year I started to follow a 1,5-year course on esthetic and functional dentistry in Germany.

Setting a goal and the way towards it is key to success. Good practices in dentistry tell us that we should not take shortcuts, ever.

Hi! My name is Kimberley and I am Emina’s assistant. I have been working as a dental assistant for 11 years and one of my tasks is to make sure that Emina can dedicate as much of her time and expertise as possible to our patients.

I do my work with pleasure. I have worked at a number of other practices where I was able to gain valuable experience in general dentistry, periodontal surgery and implantology. Also, my emphasis is on dental hygiene, the quality of care we render to our patients, and on following the guidelines and protocol recommended by professional organizations. At Valeriusstraat Mondzorg, we endeavor to do everything possible to make sure that you get the best quality treatment you can get.

I will be the first person to greet you when you come to visit us, and in case of any questions I will be there for you, either in person or on the phone when you need to call us.
