Finance Director


Fresh Tandartsen is a leading Dutch dental group, focused on a high-quality and patient centric-approach. Founded in 2014 by Koen Clement (CEO) and Tako-Jan Holwerda (CFO), Fresh Tandartsen has grown into a strong dental platform and top 3 player in the Netherlands with an excellent reputation. The first clinic in Heemstede was a merger of 6 solo practices and is still part the company which has grown to running 45 clinics and 10 labs across the Netherlands.

Fresh focuses on quality, integrity and a patient-centric approach rather than a retail model, with centralised labs supplying dental products to its clinics and external parties. Next to the dental clinics and the associated Fresh Service Center, other initiatives have also been developed to be able to offer an all-in package for dental practices. This includes a platform for specialist dental care, several in-house laboratories and an own Fresh academy. This gives Fresh Tandartsen every opportunity to offer patients complete and optimal oral care and to invest in technological innovations such as 3D printers and remote orthodontics. Fresh Unieke Mondzorg has also been launched since 2017. This platform for mobile oral care for the elderly and vulnerable people is also growing rapidly.

In 2019, Fresh Tandartsen found a partner in the English Private Equity investor Livingbridge. Livingbridge’s investment will be used to support Fresh’s growth plans with further M&A and (inter)national acquisitions strategies, whilst retaining the high quality of service levels for which Fresh are renowned. This means ambitious growth plans and an active buy and build strategy for the coming years. To strengthen the management team to steer the expected growth, we are now looking for the new Finance Director to join Fresh Tandartsen.

We are thrilled that Livingbridge has decided to invest and that they recognise our vision for the future and ambition to become the leading Dutch dental group. With Livingbridge’s support we will look to increase our M&A activity in a fragmented market, accelerating our long-term growth. We can’t wait to start working with them and believe this is a real turning point in our five-year history. Koen Clement, CEO, Fresh Tandartsen
