Edith Groenendijk MSc, Drs. (1965) graduated from the School of Dentistry at the Catholic University of Nijmegen in 1989. From that moment she has worked as a general restorative dentist in several offices and from 1992 in her own office. At that time she focused specifically on periodontal treatments and complete dental rehabilitations. Because she was unable to adequately serve her patients using the available prosthetic dentistry she began a post-graduate course in Oral Implantology at the Academic Centre for Dentistry in Amsterdam (ACTA) in 1998. In 2000 she obtained a Master of Science degree in Oral Implantology. At that moment she opened a referral clinic in Oral Implantology in The Hague.
In 2001 she became a NVOI (Dutch Association for Oral Implantology) certified Implantologist. In addition to her work in practice, Edith Groenendijk is also a member of several scientific associations, she has published scientific articles and she delivers courses in the Netherlands and abroad.
