Tabinda Mahmood, Dental Hygienist
Born in The Hague, Tabinda spent her whole upbringing and school-years in this city before spending some time travelling through Pakistan. It was in Pakistan where she was in contact with the field of Dentistry and loved how Dentistry connected her to so many people over the world.
Thereafter, she followed the 4 year study programme 'Bachelor of Dental Hygiene' in Amsterdam at the Inholland University and graduated in 2010 as the 'Youngest Dental Hygienist of the Netherlands'.
Since then she has been working in different clinics in The Hague. Since July 2019 she has been working as a Dental Hygienist at the IHCH.
Tabinda thoroughly enjoys the diversity and multicultural atmosphere at the IHCH and believes it is a true reflection of the International city of Peace.
"Dental hygienists are oral health professionals who clean teeth, examine patients for signs of oral diseases such as gingivitis, and provide otherpreventive dental care. Also an important function the hygienist provides is to help you develop a more efficient cleaning regime at home."
