Referral to Jaw Medical Centre?

Information for referrers

The KMC - Kaak Medical Center, part of the Zaans Medical Center, is located on the outskirts of Amsterdam centre (Jan van Galenstraat 176-178). Our services are characterized by quality, assurance and personal attention. Because we know how worrying a visit to the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon can be, we always take plenty of time for you and the patients. We do not have a waiting list and patients can also come to us in the evenings.

The KMC Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are affiliated with various professional groups, such as the Dutch Association for Oral Diseases, and Facial Surgery (NVMKA), KNMT, NVTS and NVOI. Our working method is characterized by working according to a previously drawn up treatment plan, clear communication, close tied contact with our referrers and thinking within the wishes of the patient (e.g. cost savings).

The following treatments are performed within the KMC:

Oral surgery

  • Removal of wisdom teeth;
  • Removal of teeth, molars and root residues;
  • Root point surgery (apex resection);
  • Diagnosis and treatment of mucosal abnormalities in the oral cavity;
  • Releasing impacted teeth;
  • more information

Jaw and facial surgery

  • Diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular joint complaints
  • Reconstruction of bone for implantology
  • Jaw operations: Orthognatic surgery / orthopedics
  • Chin corrections / chin plastic-surgery
  • more information

Despite the fact that our small-scale outdoor clinic offers many advantages compared to hospitals, we cannot perform every treatment on location. We will plan complex Oral and Maxillofacial surgery and in some cases implantology within the hospital in Zaandam. Of course in consultation with the patient.
At the Zaans Medical Center it is also possible to perform a treatment under general anesthesia. There is a waiting list for this.
