Orthodontics.png

With a new kind of orthodontic treatment it is no longer necessary to wear braces. Does that sound interesting? It gets even better: the aligners are almost invisible and very comfortable.

Aligners

The invisible aligners are used for both esthetic and/or functional results. You will wear them 20-22 hours per day and you only remove them when you eat. Every two weeks you change the aligners and during the treatment people will start noticing your changing smile. The treatment is specially indicated for teenagers and adults. We will still refer children to the orthodontist because for them braces are still the best option.


To book a dental appointment, please call (070) 306 5100 and select the Dental Care Department. For information please email us at ihchdental@ezorg.nl. 


Snoring.png

Snoring? Waking up not feeling like you’ve slept at all? Struggling to stay awake during meetings in the day? These kind of symptoms are common with a condition call Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea is a breathing condition that prevents you getting deep nourishing sleep, so your body is craving it constantly.

Sleep intake
In our Sleep diagnostic department, we will conduct a thorough sleep intake as well as a physical examination of your upper airway structures. We have the means for in-depth sleep diagnostic tests in order to determine the severity of your issue. Once you are diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, our sleep diagnostic team will explain all the various ways in which your condition can be treated.

Treating your sleep apnea can mean feeling years younger, help with losing weight, improving your memory, concentration and motivation and improve your mood substantially. Untreated sleep apnea has many complications including increasing your risk or cardiac disease, cognitive function, diabetes and depression.

To book an appointment with our sleep diagnostic department, please call (070) 306 5145 and select the Polyclinic. For information please email us at ihchpoli@ezorg.nl, or the sleep nurse directly on martin@ezorg.nl.
Our opening hours are from Monday to Friday from 08h00 to 17h00.

INFORMATION ABOUT VACCINATIONS

The Dutch Government is implementing the Covid-19 vaccination schedule and strategy.

There is a vaccination schedule for people who do not work in healthcare. And a vaccination schedule for health and care workers. There are many factors that influence the coronavirus vaccination schedule.

When it’s time for your population group  (including the medical and high risk group) to be vaccinated, you’ll receive an invitation by letter or email. Always use the first invitation you receive. There is no need to contact your medical specialist or GP. The invitation will inform you about the location and time. This could be at a large vaccination center run by the municipal health service (GGD), or at your GP’s office.

You need to be registered at a GP practice (e.g. IHCH GP Family Practice)* in the Netherlands in order to receive an invitation for vaccination according to the Netherlands Covid-19 Vaccination Scheme.

*Please note that the IHCH Polyclinic Specialist Care (Medical Specialists) is not a GP Practice and therefore will not be administering Covid-19 vaccines.

More information on Covid-19 vaccines, including leaflets about testing and FAQ can be found on the following websites:

Getting vaccinated against Covid-19 in the Netherlands (translations)

GGD Haaglanden (dutch)

GGD Hollands Midden (dutch)

GGD Rotterdam-Rijnmond (dutch)

The GGD has installed a hotline for all questions related to Covid-19 and Covid-19 vaccines, available between 08:00 and 20:00 daily 0800-1351.

The IHCH recently introduced a new Well Child Centre offered by our paediatrics department!

The Well Child Centre caters for the unique needs of expat parents and their children. We offer periodic growth & development checks with the opportunity for further evaluation if abnormalities are detected. During these checks, we also discuss (additional) vaccinations and make individual vaccination planning adjusted to the needs of the child. We accommodate your concerns regarding safety, development, sleep, toilet training and behaviour, to name a few.

It is run by paediatricians and nursing staff from the IHCH paediatric department. Our medical staff are multi-lingual with international background. We understand the expectations and issues of expats living in the Netherlands.

You are welcome to call us anytime from 09: 00am to 16:30pm, Monday through Friday at 070- 306 51 42 for more information and for booking an appointment.
